His presentation was titled Adversity Underwater.
Our keynote speaker provides a candid look from the standpoint of sailors who were instrumental in saving the world’s first nuclear-powered ship from a near disaster. Lessons learned from surrounding events and subsequent development of the U.S. Navy’s nuclear submarine force apply today to all industries, utilities, governments, our personal lives and those of our families.
