Wednesday, Sept. 16, 10:00-11:30 a.m. | Mike Abrashoff | Keynote Presentation* & Discussion

*Keynote presentation will not be recorded.

Mike Abrashoff Mike Abrashoff was the most-junior officer in the Pacific Fleet when he took command of the near-worst performing ship. Twelve months later, the USS Benfold was the best ship in the entire Navy – using the same crew. The story of that stunning transformation has lessons for every organization: leadership matters – and culture is everything.
