About the Speaker

A dedicated patriot, intellectual, and strategist, former Secretary of Defense and retired Marine General James N. Mattis exemplifies principled leadership in times of turbulence.

One of the preeminent leaders of his generation, Gen James Mattis has spent nearly 50 years in the service of his country. Renowned for his diligent study of war, and his dogged efforts on the battlefield, Gen Mattis is described as a principled commander who isn't afraid to tell it like it is.

Gen Mattis speaks with candor and thoughtful analysis about the threats that face our nation and military. Humorous, compassionate, and strategic, he also offers insightful lessons in leadership, with a deep focus on the art of empowering individuals.

Lessons in Servant Leadership and Leading by Example, with Gen James N. Mattis, USMC (Ret.)

A battle-tested commander inspiring others to lead by his example, Gen James N. Mattis provides audiences with real-life lessons in leadership, grounded in strong moral principles.

“When leading large organizations, use touchstones. Put a human face on the mission, convey your intent, and reach your subordinates’ hearts and minds,” he urges.

As a senior officer, Gen Mattis always made time to talk with the most junior staff, sharing his time and attention with everyone. “Leaders serve and work for the people on their team,” he says. “I have been accused of making my subordinates my equals, and I happily stand guilty.”

Gen Mattis believes leadership isn’t about what you say, but rather what you do every day in support of your people. Known for his intellect, candor, and humility, he teaches audiences how true role models shape behavior by providing their people with examples of excellence to emulate.

With his straightforward approach and examples from the field, he shares the importance of leading with insight, courage, and compassion – above all else.

Advance registration for the golf tournament is required and is open to all conference and trade show attendees.
