About the event
The Webster dictionary describes a leader as 1. the person who leads or commands a group, organization, or country.
However, that falls flat and doesn't fully encapsulate what it means to be a leader.
"Everyone knows what leadership is, but few people can articulate what it truly means. Creating a cohesive definition within your organization is a crucial step for developing future leaders and maintaining unity and a strong leadership focus." Jacob Morgan
If I asked you to define leadership, would you be able to articulate a clear answer?
In business, we talk of leadership incessantly, but organizations rarely have a unifying definition that organizations can agree upon. Having a shared vision is important to building cohesive work cultures, and it is necessary as we develop tomorrow's talent.
Nic McKinley started his career as a USAF Pararescueman (PJ), where he served for ten years before working as a consultant for fortune ten companies. The CIA then recruited Nic as a Special Agent responsible for executing full-spectrum intelligence operations in high threat areas. At both the US Air Force and the CIA, Nick developed a penchant for crafting solutions to challenging problems. When combined with his need to pursue justice, Nic left the CIA to found DeliverFund, and VERAFĪ, directly responding to the proliferation of human trafficking and fraud. DeliverFund is the first counter-human trafficking non-profit to use market principles to combat human trafficking in the USA, at scale, through proprietary technology applications, and VERAFĪ is a venture-backed software and services company focused on democratizing intelligence so clients can make confident investing and hiring decisions. Nic attended Harvard University.
