Carey shares the fundamentals that helped her win in the cockpit at Mach 2

As the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy, Carey Lohrenz is used to working in fast moving, dynamic environments where inconsistent execution can generate catastrophic results.

The same challenges are found in business: markets change, customer needs evolve and if you do not adapt quickly, your company is at risk. In her motivating and engaging keynote presentations, Carey shares her fascinating experiences operating in one of the world’s most challenging environments – an aircraft carrier. She is uniquely qualified in the fundamentals of winning under pressure, reducing errors and overcoming obstacles. Her mastery of these fundamentals can help your team triumph in this high-risk, time crunched world.

  • "I just wanted to let you know how wonderful it was to have Carey speak at our event last week! We were honored have Carey at our final executive education session for 2015. She is so down to earth, amazingly inspiring, and beyond engaging! She has the seamless ability to connect her military experience with leadership in the business world.  As I’ve returned to the workplace more than one person has quoted her in various settings; from “80%” to 'If you lose sight, you lose the fight' and many others. I highly recommend her as a speaker and feel privileged to have met her! She Rocks – Go Fearless Leadership!"

  • Carey Lohrenz has written a book that is about much more than leadership. Carey's story is about looking life straight in the eyes and saying 'Bring it.' Bring the challenges, the victories, the hard times, the absolute joy of meaningful accomplishment--bring it all. This book grabs your heart and spirit from the first page and never lets go. I highly recommend Fearless Leadership.

In "Fearless Leadership," Lohrenz walks you through the three fundamentals of real fearlessness--courage, tenacity, and integrity--and then reveals fearless leadership in action, offering advice on how to set a bold vision, bring the team together (as wingmen, not Top Gun mavericks), execute effectively, and stay resilient through hard times.
