It’s not every day you have the opportunity to hear from the lead solo pilot of the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels. John Foley will be the keynote speaker at the 2018 Partners in Progress Conference, Feb. 13-14, in Orlando, Fla.

“Own it and fix it,” is the founding principle that makes for successful teamwork, says Mr. Foley. 

As the closing keynote speaker, he will share his strategies for creating dynamic teamwork through individual responsibility, leadership, and honest communication. He will explain how to check your ego at the door and focus on getting the best way, not your way. This is the key to success, he says. 

As a former lead pilot with the Blue Angels, his exciting, rare journey inspires awe, triggering audiences to take action and rethink what they believe is possible. John motivates teams and individuals to reach their highest potential while empowering organizations to sustain excellence under dynamic change.  His insights on leadership and teamwork at the Partners in Progress Conference are not to be missed.  

The Conference takes place at the recently renovated Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace and will focus on communication, commitment, and deliverables. Contractors, chapter executives, and future leaders will all find something valuable in this two-day program. With a streamlined format, the conference promises to be even better than in the past.
