Navy SEAL Veteran Announced Keynote Speaker
for 2014 NASF Management Conference
One of the most highly-decorated combat veterans of our time, Rob O’Neill, Navy SEAL has been selected as Keynote speaker for the 2014 NASF Management Conference.
As a team leader with the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, he has deployed more than a dozen times, and held combat leadership roles in more than 400 combat missions in four different theaters of war. A highly-trained Navy SEAL, he led the military’s most elite and was involved in our nation’s most important campaigns. With most of his career shrouded in a classified cloak, O’Neill was the man on the ground we have never heard of but know exists. He was one of the quiet professionals performing the most difficult tasks in the most difficult circumstances, serving his remarkable career in the shadows and keeping America safe in the process.
“We are honored to have Mr. O’Neill speak, stated NASF President, Rick Delawder. We look forward to hearing his fascinating journey through the times and struggles he has been challenged with as a Navy SEAL. In his line of work, instant, critical decision-making is an absolute necessity for success, and he has proven experience in exceptionally high-risk and fluid environments. I’m sure his message will be powerful for those interested in learning more on how to grow their companies in these dynamic times.
Having trained more than 800 special operations and tactical operators, O’Neill brings this unique expertise to organizations and translates his elite SEAL team training into high-impact, actionable insights on leadership, decision-making, operating in uncertain environments, and how to become the ‘best of the best.’ His mantra is “never quit,” and O’Neill believes this is the single most important factor in determining success. A family man, O’Neill reminds us that the servicemen doing the dirtiest work are often making the hardest sacrifices.
