  • Carey Lohrenz’s presentation Lessons in Partnering- A View from the F-14 Tomcat at our Amdocs Partner Summit was exceptional! Right now I need to “Embrace Challenge and Experience Success” in new territories around the globe. I will definitely need to Break Out of My Comfort Zone and Be Fearless! I never thought about fighter pilots as being part of a team. Your keynote speech showed how important collaborating and teamwork was in order to survive- we can do this too! We can be good wingman! Without teamwork, neither myself or my new strategic partners will be able to achieve our goals… Thank you!!!”

Carey Lohrenz Speaking Topics

  • Patient Safety

    Carey Lohrenz knows what it takes to win in one of the highest pressure environments imaginable, where inconsistent execution can generate catastrophic results. When it comes to safety, carrier aviators have it down to a science. With zero tolerance for error, they rely on every crew member, regardless of rank, to work as a team and maintain safety awareness at all times.

    A dynamic healthcare speaker, Lohrenz’s passion for improving patient and staff satisfaction in the fast-paced field of healthcare brings results. With her authentic, highly motivational personality, she is not only sought after by medical and pharmaceutical professionals for her risk management solutions, but small businesses and large corporations appreciate her “flight plan’ for success.

    Lohrenz’s keynotes and workshops on patient safety challenge, inform, and inspire your employees to move to higher levels of performance and operational excellence in high-risk and sometimes dangerous environments. She shares leadership risk-planning strategies and training to:

    • Improve leadership, communication, and teamwork among your physicians, nurses, staff and patients
    • Improve the patient experience
    • Demonstrate simple root cause analysis that will highlight “what” is right, versus “who” is right
    • Create a positive safety culture
    • Reduce human error & the chance of a mishap
    • Encourage a commitment to safety from all of your healthcare providers while maintaining clinical quality

    These tools will allow you to survive and succeed, with superior results consistently, just as she did in the demanding world of fighter aviation.

  • Remaining Relevant,

    In a challenging economic environment, remaining relevant to your customers and within your organization is critical to your survival. Those who fail to deliver value to their consumers, shareholders, clients, and teammates become extinct. Could that happen to you? In aviation, complacency kills. The same is true in business: if you become complacent and fail to ignore the warning signs (shifts in culture, trends, global demands, budget restrictions), you could be facing extinction.

    In this energizing and empowering keynote, speaker Carey Lohrenz shares the fundamentals that helped her win in the cockpit at Mach 2 and can help your team win in business. She will teach you the importance of remaining relevant, how to accelerate performance, how to stay agile and adaptable, and how high-performing teams become excellent.

  • Striking a Balance,

    A successful career, a happy family, and a balanced personal life leave little time for many people to nurture their dreams. As a former naval aviator, a corporate executive, and a busy mother of four, Carey “Vixen” Lohrenz knows firsthand the challenges of navigating the many demands of daily work-life balance. In this riveting and inspirational keynote speech, she will inspire you to “be the catalyst” and look beyond your circumstances. Just as pilots do a “systems check” before takeoff, Lohrenz’s motivational speech will walk you through a “pre-flight check” on your journey towards success. She will touch upon the following:

    • Belief in yourself and your abilities: to be successful and ultimately take charge of your life, overcoming lack of self-belief is one of the biggest hurdles
    • A firm commitment: be unwavering and purposeful in your actions
    • Clarity of purpose: having a clear picture of precisely what you want to achieve is a key factor in achieving success
    • Make a plan and stay focused: keep life’s distractions and interruptions at bay by creating your plan and sticking to it

    Lohrenz will inspire and energize while providing work-life balance tools to help you regain control of your personal and professional life.

  • Lessons in Partnership,

    Just like in aviation, speed is life in a rapidly changing global environment. Collaboration and managing successful strategic partnerships are critical to business success. Your organization gains competitive advantage when it can optimize partnerships and strategic alliances. Stronger relationships with partners can be the key to long-term success and growth.

    In this inspiring and engaging keynote, speaker Carey Lohrenz shares what it takes to be on the leading edge. Those things that helped her succeed in one of the most extreme environments on Earth can help your team elevate itself, gain advantage, and uncover opportunities.

  • Lessons in Leadership From the Flight Deck,

    In 1994, when Carey "Vixen" Lohrenz was deployed to the USS Abraham Lincoln, there were fewer than five female aviators on a ship of 5,000 male crew members. Facing uncharted waters in an intensely male-dominated environment, Lohrenz learned vital lessons in leadership that followed her into the corporate world. The most successful leaders share a common foundation of principles used from the flight deck to the front office. The greatest leaders from all corners of the world know how to inspire, use good judgment, take initiative, and make powerful decisions with integrity. In this popular inspirational keynote, Lohrenz shares the fundamentals that helped her win in the cockpit at Mach 2, and can help your team win in business:

    An industry pioneer and team performance accelerant, Lohrenz is uniquely qualified in the fundamentals of leadership, teamwork, winning under pressure, reducing errors, and overcoming obstacles. This highly popular leadership keynote will challenge, inform, and inspire your team to move to higher levels of performance. Lohrenz offers bottom-line expertise with clear, realistic takeaway items for audiences that can produce both short-term and life-changing results.
