DE-RISKATHON Black Background@4x  
 Transportation Leadership Retreat 
 September 13th and 14th 
 Brookfield, Wisconsin 



A DE-RISKATHON is a 24-hour in-person event where high-performing companies and leaders learn from the best teachers in the world.

A DE-RISKATHON focuses on the 3 areas of hidden risk that hold great transportation companies back: Leadership, Culture, and Operations.


 Take your leadership to the next level 
Former Navy SEAL instructor Mike Sarraille shares the leadership principles that he learned on the battlefield.
Why NAVY SEAL Training?
Under extreme pressure, the problems that come from bad leadership are exacerbated. The Navy Seals are put into some of the most extreme scenarios imaginable. Their training is renowned for its rigor and discipline, culminating with the infamous Hell Week.
Extreme Ownership
What is Extreme Ownership?
Extreme Ownership is a mindset that great business leaders have. They take ownership of their problems and work to take control of them.



Mike served fifteen years as an officer in the SEAL Teams and then became the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline. Mike is a recipient of the Silver Star, six Bronze Stars, two Defense Meritorious Service Medals, and a Purple Heart.

 Create a culture of safety and excellence 
How to run a company with uncompromising safety that still delivers for its clients. 


What does space travel have to do with running a trucking company?

NASA, like many companies, was experience a struggle between meeting deadlines and doing so safely. 

In 1986, the explosion of The Challenger was the result of what Mike calls an 'inevitable outcome' after years of eroding cultural values. Safety warnings were consistently disregarded in favor of operational goals.

Many transportation companies face these competing priorities on a daily basis. Mike will share how NASA turned its culture back around.

Mike Mullane

Mike Mullane, a West Point graduate, was selected as a Mission Specialist in 1978 in the first group of Space Shuttle Astronauts. He completed three space missions and logged 356 hours in space aboard the Shuttles Discovery and Atlantis.
