Signature Key Note:
From Failure to Flag

From Failure to Flag (Navy Admiral) is a story about failure and how Rear Admiral LeClair rose from flunking out of Navy SEAL training and still becoming an Admiral in the US Navy (Two star Flag Officer).The talk has been characterized as educational, motivational and inspirational. It is given though through the lens of someone who has worked in the financial services industry for 15 years and knows the lives of advisors and their major challenges. Attendees walk away feeling good about our industry, Jackson and have actionable items for themselves and their teams.
