A true American hero, First Sergeant Matt Eversmann illustrates the importance of leadership, courage and selfless service to succeed when ordinary circumstances become extraordinary challenges.

As an Army Ranger deployed to Somalia in 1993, Matt experienced the horrors of war when he and his fellow soldiers were trapped in a hostile district of Mogadishu and marked for death by an angry mob. His inspiring story of survival was immortalized in the epic film, “Black Hawk Down,” which recounts the harrowing experience.

Committed to sharing the lessons he learned in the military, Matt draws parallels from his experiences to highlight the importance of leadership, courage and responsibility within any team or organization. Unambiguously humble, gracious and warm, his powerful story and straightforward insights on instilling these values stay with business leaders longs after the applause has ended.
