    October Monthly Luncheon


    Commander Kirk Lippold, USN (Ret.)Authority on Leadership and Crisis Management & Former Commander of the USS Cole

    Commander Kirk Lippold, USN (Ret.), author of Front Burner: The Attack on the USS Cole, knows what it takes to create the foundation for successful leadership that prepares teams to rise to any challenge they may face.In 2000, when the USS Cole was attacked by Al-Qaeda terrorists in the port of Aden, Yemen, Lippold and his crew distinguished themselves by saving the American warship from sinking in the face of one of the most brazen acts of terrorism prior to September 11, 2001.

    Lippold shows how the difference between team success and failure lies in the instinctive principles that are ingrained through training and guide people to action. Based on the leadership standards he instilled in his crew leading up to that historic day, Lippold has developed the "Five Pillars of Leadership" that construct a framework for getting the most from your workforce: integrity, vision, personal responsibility and accountability, trust, and professional competence.

    With this unique and invaluable experience, Commander Lippold has briefed over 6,000 military officers, 2,000 federal and state law enforcement officers, and given over 300 presentations on this seminal event in the war on terrorism.

    Currently, he is president of Lippold Strategies, a consulting firm specializing in executive leadership development and long-range strategic planning and serves as Senior Vice President for military policy and strategic development at the public affairs firm Phillip Stutts & Co.  A US Naval Academy graduate, Lippold has received the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Legion of Merit, and the Meritorious Service Medal among others.

    Leaders and Heroes






    First Sergeant Matt Eversmann (Ret.)

    and Chief Richard Picciotto NYFD

    Matthew Eversmann is a testament to the true nature of war and heroism. He was immortalized in the epic film Black Hawk Down (his character was played by Josh Hartnett), which tells the heroic account of a group of elite US soldiers sent into Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1993 as part of a UN peacekeeping operation. Young Rangers and veteran Delta Force soldiers fight side by side, outnumbered and surrounded, for 18 hours in the most hostile district of Mogadishu until a rescue convoy could be mounted to retrieve them. As a part of that mission, both as a survivor and a hero, Eversmann brings to life the horrors of his experience, what he took from it, and humanizes the creed by which he lived: “Never shall I fail my comrades…RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!”

    The highest-ranking firefighter to survive the World Trade Center collapse, and the last fireman to escape the devastation, Richard "Pitch" Picciotto was on a stairwell between the sixth and seventh floors of the North Tower when it collapsed on September 11, 2001. An FDNY battalion commander, his is the harrowing true story of an American hero who thought nothing of himself and gave nearly everything for others during one of our nation's darkest hours.
