ACE Announces Keynote Speaker -
ACE Trailblazers Breakfast
with Black Hawk Down Army Ranger, Keni Thomas

Join us Saturday morning at the ACE Trailblazer's breakfast from 7:3-9:30am. Keynote speaker Keni Thomas will motivate your team to take care of each other by creating leaders at every level as he guides you through an incredible story of teamwork and leadership. Inspire each and every individual to see themselves as vital to mission success.

“Blackhawk Down” is a well-documented and historically significant battle that has inspired Americans for many years. But what if you could hear the story straight from someone who was there on the streets that day? What would you want to learn and how could it help you? When you discover first-hand what makes soldiers willingly put their lives on the line for each other, then you begin to understand what it takes for you to do the same. If leading by example is something that is important to you, then you will want to hear what Keni Thomas has to say about combat.
