Register to attend Celebration here.
Col. Gadson is a man of great strength, courage and character, with a tremendously heroic story and a powerful message.
The event, which will be held Oct. 30 at the Tower Club in Tyson’s Corner, will be attended by business executives, business owners, entrepreneurs and philanthropists from the Washington D.C. area. Participants will have the distinct privilege of hearing from one of America’s great leaders, U.S. Army Col. Gregory D. Gadson (Ret), a highly-decorated battalion leader who lost both legs in Iraq in 2007 and went on to continue serving his country and found a company of his own.
“You don't get to pick your circumstances,” says Col. Gadson, and is the lesson that he had to learn when he faced the toughest circumstances of his life.
Col. Gadson is expected to speak about the role of teamwork in any successful organization. Within the context of telling his life’s journey, he will share what he has determined to be the keys to battling adversity and staying motivated despite the hurdles and obstacles that are placed in front of us every day.
“Col. Gadson is a man of great strength, courage and character, with a tremendously heroic story and a powerful message,” says Gordon J. Bernhardt, President and CEO of Bernhardt Wealth Management and creator of “Profiles in Success,” an inspirational series of books that focus on character-based leadership.
A distinguished retired serviceman, Col. Gadson has twice earned the Legion of Merit, three Bronze Stars, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals and a Purple Heart. Today, he is the Founder and Managing Partner of Patriot Strategies, LLC, a business where he continues to support the government through service-based contracts. Read more about Col. Gadson here.
