Opening Keynote Session
Presenter: Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour

Combat tests you. Being a beat cop tests you. Life tests you. Three brothers and being the only girl...tests you. 

Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour has been tested her whole life. A gutsy trailblazer, her resume is an impressive collection of “firsts” including America’s first Black woman combat pilot. She served two tours of duty in Iraq as a Marine. She was also a diversity liaison officer to the Pentagon for Headquarters Marine Corps. After her military service, FlyGirl revved up her career in the private sector as an entrepreneur, consultant to business, and author of Zero to Breakthrough: The 7-Step, Battle-Tested Method for Accomplishing Goals that Matter

As a speaker, FlyGirl unleashes hard-hitting advice and amazing anecdotes from her adventures on the battlefield and in business. She helps individuals and organizations "get gutsy" and build a sustainable inner force and conviction—that results in accomplishing significant goals.
