Known as “The Wingman,” Lt Col (ret)  and keynote speaker Rob 'Waldo' Waldman is a combat decorated fighter pilot, executive coach, and the author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestseller Never Fly Solo. He helps organizations build collaborative cultures of trust, courage and commitment in order to adapt to change, break performance barriers, and overcome adversity.

In addition to his time in the military, Waldo has real world corporate sales experience and is an expert on change management and resilience – having overcome massive claustrophobia as a fighter pilot. His compelling stories and techniques on overcoming adversity, performing under pressure, earning trust, and servant-based leadership are extremely relevant to organizations who are going through massive change and seeking to build high performance teams and partnerships.

“We Survive Solo but Win Together.” – Waldo Waldman

    Lead with Courage, Build Trusting Partnerships, and Reach New Heights in Business and Sales

    • Flying solo? You might think so. But take a good look around. You have support staff. You have managers. You have suppliers, vendors, and distributors. And you have colleagues, family members and significant others.
    • Today in our super charged, highly competitive world of constant change, those who build trust and work as a team will dodge the missiles and win.
    • By committing yourself to excellence and placing your trust in those around you, you can overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and break performance barriers during adverse times. By placing your trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to your customers and team, there is no mission you can’t complete!

    How to Build a Culture of Courage in Business and Life 

    • How can you instill a climate of ownership in your organization so that every person feels like they are accountable and responsible for its success?
    • What tools can you employ to motivate the members of your organization to focus on the mission rather than themselves?
    • How can you help create an organization where change and innovation are not met with fear, but embraced with courage and respected as a tool to beat the competition?

    The key to building a high-powered organization that encourages innovative thinking, loyalty to the mission, effective communication, and a relentless commitment to excellence lies with its leadership. In this high energy, multimedia workshop, Lt Col Rob “Waldo” Waldman highlights the difference between managing people, and leading them to be responsible, empowered and confident wingmen! What results is a more productive and efficient organization with superior morale that can rapidly overcome challenges in a competitive marketplace.


He was amazing! Even when we had some major technical difficulties with the hotel AV at the end of his presentation, he powered through and didn't miss a beat.
