The Entrepreneurial Spirit

It is my privilege and honor to introduce to you our next speaker, especially to a group of entrepreneurs. The fact Nando is here today speaking to you has a very strong tie to the entrepreneurial spirit. When Nando shares his story with you today, I want you to notice how decisions were made, how they adapted to an unknown environment and the innovation they used to lead them out of the Andes. Just like many of us, Nando and his teammates found themselves in a situation they knew little about, but their drive to get out was stronger than their lack of knowledge. With the same spirit and determination leading Nando to safety has driven his career the last 40 year. He is unlike any other speaker I represent; mainly because he isn’t a speaker.

I have the privilege of knowing Eric Maddox, the Army Interrogator behind Saddam Hussein's capture. While serving in Iraq, Eric’s breakthrough interrogation techniques revealed information from the dictator's inner circle that pinpointed the precise location of Saddam's Tikrit spider hole.

Setting Your Moral Compass

By: Gail Davis I have known General Peter Pace, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for more than five years and, without fail, every time I get the opportunity to listen to him speak, I gain new insights that make a lasting impression. Recently, GDA Speakers hosted a breakfast for some of Dallas’ top executives to hear firsthand from the General. Pace is passionate about helping corporate leaders learn from his experience commanding our armed forces and advising the President. While he shared many leadership lessons, it was his message on setting your moral compass that made the biggest impact on me.
