Navy SEAL to Discuss Teamwork at Scott Conference Center
Omaha - Leadership and teamwork will be the focus of a special guest lecture from Navy SEAL and motivational speaker David Rutherford at the Scott Conference Center, 6450 Pine St., on Wednesday, Jan. 16.
The event, sponsored by the University of Nebraska’s Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI), which is located on the campus of UNO, will be held for PKI scholarship students and members of the Omaha community. Rutherford’s lecture will run from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. with a reception immediately following.
An eight-year veteran of the Navy Special Warfare community, Rutherford served as a SEAL student, combat paramedic, operator and instructor. During his time in the armed forces, he participated in missions in South Asia, the Middle East, South East Asia and Afghanistan.
Rutherford began his work as a motivational speaker and behavioral coach, after leaving active duty in 2006, by promoting a leadership style called “Froglogic,” which takes lessons he learned from Navy SEAL operations and applies them to everyday life. According to Rutherford’s website, Froglogic is a “way of thinking that perpetually activates an individual’s desire to forge his or her own self-confidence in order to commit to living a team oriented lifestyle.”
Rutherford’s work has been published in book form (for adults and children) as well as on DVD.
Media are welcome and encouraged to attend this event. For questions, contact Amy Freking at 402.554.3333 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
