The Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce will host Jimmy Blackmon at a Power Breakfast on Wednesday, July 19, 2017. The event begins at 7:30a.m. and will be held at the Riverview Inn, 50 College Street.
Blackmon is among the most combat experienced leaders of the modern era. He has led high-risk missions all over the world, including serving as the air mission commander on the operation that netted #2 and #3 in the famous Iraqi deck of cards. Blackman also served as the aviation commander during the battles in which four Medals of Honor were earned in Afghanistan – in the very valleys where the attacks of 9-11 were planned and rehearsed.
Blackmon will share how to cast an organizational vision, shape the culture of your business and set a climate for success. He understands how to navigate the complexities of the 21st Century, build cohesive teams with purpose, and motivate America’s millennial generation. Attendees will leave his presentation with a clear understanding of the importance of an empowering culture and positive work climate.

Jimmy concluded his military service as the War Plans Division Chief on the Joint Staff in Washington, D.C. where he led a team of strategists that planned for our nation’s most complex global problems.
