Keynote Speaker: Chris Kolenda, “Challenges Veterans Face” 

Christopher D. Kolenda, Ph.D., founder of the Strategic Leaders Academy, writes life-changing books, bicycles for great causes like the 1700-mile Fallen Hero Honor Ride, and helps leaders achieve their dreams. A West Point graduate, internationally renowned combat leader, and retired Army colonel, he was a trusted advisor to three 4-star generals and two Secretaries of Defense. Chris became the first American to have both fought the Taliban as a commander in combat and negotiated successfully with them in peace talks. 
His unique warrior-diplomacy has been featured in New York Times bestselling books, including The Outpost by Jake Tapper. His contributions have also been cited in the world's leading newspapers and on television. Chris’s books include Leadership: The Warrior's Art, and INDIE'S #1 War & Military book of 2021, Zero-Sum Victory: What We're Getting Wrong About War.

A member of the Rotary Club of Milwaukee, Chris was featured on the cover of Rotary magazine in March 2023

We hope to see you there!
