 Transportation Leadership Retreat 
 June 7th and 8th 
 Harley Davidson Museum (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) 



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

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


 Build higher performing teams 
Former Navy SEAL and best-selling author Rich Diviney teaches how to build higher performing teams.
Optimal performance isn't about skill. 
It's about your Attributes. 
Although most aspects of our work lives revolve around identify and leveraging peoples' skillsets, true high-level performance comes from recognizing and leveraging peoples' attributes.
Through years of observation, Diviney learned to identify a successful Navy SEAL's core Attributes - the innate traits for how a person performs as an individual and as part of a team. 
Understanding your own attributes and those of the people around you can fast-track optimal performance in all areas of your life.

 The Attributes

Rich Diviney draws upon 20+ years of experience as a Navy SEAL Officer.  Since retirement in early 2017, Rich has worked as a speaker and consultant with the Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute and Simon Sinek Inc.  Rich is also the author of the best-selling book: The Attributes.


“So much of what I know about trust I learned from Rich”

65% of US employees view their job as the number one stressor in their lives - yet only 19% of US workers possess the resilience to transform that turbulence into growth and success.

Born To Fly

Successful organizations are fueled by resilient teams, confident in their ability to not only bounce back but thrive from a significant challenge.

Ryan will share his journey of being the youngest person to fly solo around the world and surviving a paraplegic plane crash just a few years later.

 How to lead a company through change 


Leading a company through a period of change or evolution is challenging. As a leader, it can even cause you to question if it's worth it.

It's not just about nuclear verdicts 
All lawsuits matter in today’s litigious environment.  Plaintiff attorneys are attempting to maximize value on all lawsuits – not just catastrophic losses.
