What Makes Keni's Combat Story So Impactful

Motivate your team to train as they fight,
fight as they train and create leaders at every level.

The historic battle of Blackhawk Down is an incredible story that admittedly, has been told many times and in many ways. I understand that if you only wanted to entertain your audience you could watch the movie and read the book. Likewise, if you are simply looking for another leadership keynote speaker, I know you have an overwhelming number of options to wade through.

But after telling the story of Task Force Ranger a few hundred times across the country, and asking people “Why did you pick me?”, I learned that the last thing you probably want for your audience is another boring power-point slide presentation on “How to be a leader”. What you really want is to inspire and motivate your audience at an individual level. What you really want at the end of the day, is for your event to be one that people will remember.

It's easier to do than you may think. All you have to do is give them something meaningful, something powerful, something that connects at a level they can relate to! And you can do that with a positive, motivating story about men like Melvin Dejesus, SFC Sean T Watson, and PFC David Floyd, the seemingly weakest link, bless-your-heart kind of fellow who saved us all. People will see themselves in the characters. The story will motivate your team to train as they fight, fight as they train and create leaders at every level.

They will discover a new understanding of what it really means to be counted on and to set an example for others to follow. Your troops will go back to work and back to their families feeling a little more extraordinary and a lot more capable of being the leader you know they can be.

And just think, no one has to get shot at during your event! Its an honor and a privilege to tell the story of Task Force Ranger. I love what I get to do. So once you have a date, all you have to do is call Premiere Speakers Bureau. They’ll make it easy for you. Call or email them today and ask about booking Keni Thomas. But you should probably do it today, because we get booked out months in advance! You can reach them here.
