May 28, 2019

Event Partners and sponsor John Deere to Co-Host Wednesday Keynote

Hardscape North America, the industry's largest gathering has officially opened registration and announced a keynote for the 2019 event. "Never Fly Solo," set for Wednesday, October 16, 2 - 3pm, will feature Lt. Col. Rob "Waldo" Waldman, who motivates business owners and crew members alike to trust their wingmen. Admission to the keynote, which is sponsored by JOHN DEERE, is included with registration.

Waldman overcame a lifelong battle with claustrophobia and a fear of heights to become a highly decorated fighter pilot with over 65 combat missions. His experiences, both in the military and business, have taught him that success is about camaraderie, courage and a commitment to excellence.

His energetic keynote is not about relating combat tactics to winning in business. Rather, it's about focusing on what really matters in business - building high-performance, trusting teams and fully serving your customers and co-workers. Waldman's customized business analogies and captivating personal stories will encourage attendees to prepare diligently for every mission, face challenges and change with courage, build more meaningful relationships, and maximize potential both in business and in life!

By placing trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to your clients, partners and co-workers, there is no business mission you can't complete!
