Brian Kitching Speaking Topics

Combat Leadership & Resilience

On 10 deployments and over 50 months in combat, I've found that it's tough to tell how someone will perform on the battlefield.

When our service men and women are faced with the gruesome realities of war, we need to have better ways to enable our service men and women to not only grapple with the challenges they face, but to find ways to return to service, community, and family.

This session peels back the realities of the intensity of battle, and provides the audience with a front row seat to what our nation's military members face, and inspires action towards solutions to maintain the strongest military in the world.

Insights on National Security / Counter-terrorism

Will the US Maintain Its Dominance as The World's Foremost Military Power?

This session walks about the geopolitical space, rooted in the threats identified in the National Security and Defense Strategies, with a focus on the frontline experiences of how our nation's most elite forces experience it in real time.

From leading a 22-nation, multi-agency task force in Jordan, to leading high-risk raids in the mountains of Afghanistan, to deploying thousands of Soldiers to Romania in support of Ukraine, this session provides the audience with a fresh understanding of the US military's posture around the globe, with insights on how we might approach the road ahead.

The Pursuit of Immense Positive Impact

What Does It Take to Live a Life of Fulfillment and Achievement?

From humble beginnings in Southeast Washington, DC to serving at the highest levels of the Pentagon and the White House, this session is rooted in the idea that passionate belief, coupled with tremendous discipline, is the true path to fulfillment and impact.
