Don’t miss Navy SEAL Museum Executive Director Rick Kaiser at The Emerson Center in Vero Beach, Florida on Tuesday, March 10 at 7:00 PM, as he speaks on Impactful Leadership.

For the duration of his distinguished career, Master Chief Rick Kaiser has been stationed around the world. Serving on SEAL Team TWO for five years, Kaiser specialized in winter warfare, combat diving, and sniping before being selected for duty at SEAL Team SIX. He served at SEAL Team SIX for twenty-seven years, acting as sniper, explosives expert, Lead Training Chief, sniper team leader, and Deputy Operations Officer. He received the Silver Star Medal for Valor during the Battle of Mogadishu (Black Hawk Down) in 1993.

The common theme throughout Rick’s time in military service–and what he attributes as the key to any successful mission–is impactful leadership. Mr. Kaiser applies leadership lessons learned during his days in uniform to his current position in the civilian world as the Executive Director of the National Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce.

This Emerson Center Humanities Event is open to the public and free of charge. Early arrival is encouraged to secure you seat.

The Museum is grateful to have been chosen as a beneficiary of this year’s Wheels & Keels of Vero Beach event. Mark your calendars and plan on attending this unique, fun venue at The Moorings Yacht and Country Club for the benefit of organizations that seek to preserve, educate, and inspire the lives of many–on The Treasure Coast and beyond.
