Closing remarks and Waldo Waldman, motivational speaker:  "Never Fly Solo".

Lead with Courage, Build Trusting Partnerships, and Reach New Heights in Business

Flying solo? You might think so. But take a good look around. You have support staff and managers. You have directors, suppliers, and distributor partners. And you have colleagues and significant others. Today in our super charged, highly competitive world of constant change, those who build trust and work as a team will dodge the missiles of adversity and win. By committing yourself to excellence and placing your trust in those around you, you can overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and break performance barriers during adverse times. By placing trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to others, there is no mission you can't complete!

Lt. Col. (ret.) Rob "Waldo" Waldman, The Wingman, overcame a lifelong battle with claustrophobia and a fear of heights to become a combat decorated Air Force fighter pilot and highly successful businessman, Hall of Fame speaker, and New York Times bestselling author. His motto is Winners Never Fly Solo! Through captivating, interactive stories, and high-energy video, you’ll learn tools and tactics to succeed in highly competitive and demanding environments.

Discover how to commit yourself to excellence, prepare diligently for every mission; and collaborate with your team with trust, mutual support, and courage. Be inspired to take to the skies knowing that you have wingmen to help you face challenge and change with confidence while maximizing your potential in all aspects of your life.

Waldo’s clients include Aflac, Marriott, Allstate, Oppenheimer, Medtronic, Merck, Verizon Wireless, UPS, Hewlett-Packard, Siemens, and dozens of national associations. A Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) and an inductee into the Speaker Hall of Fame, he is the author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Never Fly Solo (McGraw-Hill) and has been featured on Fox News, CNN, CNBC, The Harvard Business Review, and SUCCESS Magazine.
