9:00 am - 10:00 am
Level 3, Exhibit Hall B3

Join us to hear former Navy SEAL Platoon Commander Alden Mills. He is the Co-founder/Inc 500 CEO of Perfect Fitness & Author of "Be Unstoppable: The 8 Essential Actions to Succeed at Anything".

He has been awarded more than 40 patents, which have sold over 10 million products (and counting) worldwide. He’s created five #1 ranked infomercials. His next book, "Build Unstoppable Teams" is due out in early 2018. His mantra is “Success is a team sport.” Mills learned his mantra early in life as an uncoordinated, asthmatic who persevered to be a one-time Olympic rowing hopeful before going on to be a three-time #1 ranked Navy SEAL platoon commander. He applied his lessons learned in leading SEAL platoons to building and leading a hyper-growth company. He has over 25 years of military and business leadership experience building, leading and innovating with teams.
