Keynote Speaker

Lt. General Russel L. Honoré, USA (Ret.)

Commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, Leadership, Safety & Global Preparedness Authority and Leader of U.S. Capitol Complex Security Review, Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré helps organizations develop a culture of preparedness and initiates a mindset of problem-solving using strategies that create take-charge leaders.

As the commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, LTG Honoré became known as “The Category 5 Gen.” for his striking leadership style in coordinating military relief efforts in post-hurricane New Orleans. He is a decorated 37-year army veteran and global authority on leadership. When Hurricanes such as Harvey, Irma, and Ida approach—or when supply chain issues impact the economy—retired Lt. General Russel Honoré is who news networks like CNN, Fox, MSNBC, and CBS call on as their go-to expert on emergency and disaster preparedness. In 2021, Honoré was tapped by Congress to lead the U.S. Capitol Complex Security Review following the January 6th storming of the Capitol.

Gen. Honoré uses his experience managing natural and man-made conflict to help companies and organizations build a culture of preparedness. On stage, his disciplined leadership shines. In our country’s new normal, change and unpredictability are constants, which mean resilience is mandatory. LTG Honoré offers his business audiences these impactful takeaways plus an instructive message: Don't Get Stuck on Stupid!, the title of his third book. His uplifting dose of candor with real-world leadership lessons is designed to equip audiences with a preparedness mindset. He shares his no-nonsense approach to getting the job done and instills confidence in tomorrow’s leaders.
