Folks always ask why I desire to work in the United States Military community, and it’s because I truly want to change the world. No, I am not trying to be the next Miss America on this platform, but what I do know is that we are coming into a time where we will have the most service members walking among us civilians. Veterans ranging in ages from the greatest generation of WWII to our beloved GWOT generation. In my experience, Veterans are often some of the most compassionate and motivated men and women I have ever met because of what they have experienced in their service. They have seen the very worst and best of this world and that full spectrum perspective can assist in making their community a better place for themselves and our future generations. Their ability to complete work as an effective team and their fine tuned leadership skills grant them the true power to change the conversation in our community, unite our nation again, and bridge the civilian-military gap. I also know of great nonprofits that aide in transitioning folks out of the military successfully with a life filled with purpose and put on life-changing conferences like VetXpo.
So why should you join me in Dallas, Texas at VetXpo?
- Be part of something bigger.
VetXpo is in it’s inaugural year, but if you’ve been to The Raider Project Veteran Transition Seminar in the past (one of GallantFew’s program organizations), you know you’re in for a life-altering weekend. The GallantFew Family of Organizations brings people from all walks of life, both civilian and military affiliated, to discuss ideas that have the potential to change the world in which we live. At VetXpo, people of all backgrounds can come together, learn from each other, network and grow!
- You are who you surround yourself with.
VetXpo is proud to be comprised of curious, brilliant, go getters. There is no doubt that you will meet people from different backgrounds, trades, and beliefs. Each connection you make has the ability to change the way you think! Be ready to be present with an open mind. Be prepared to engage and not just mindlessly listen. Be ready to absorb and connect in meaningful ways.
- The speakers!
I get goosebumps just thinking about the range of extraordinary speakers that will be sharing their stories at Vetxpo! Some of these speakers are very well known; some less so by name. I assure you that you will walk away with ins
piring ideas that can change your life and the lives of others that you influence every day. These are real stories from real people that have likely been exactly where you are, struggle and all!
- Networking after hours.
The conference is built to provide as many opportunities to engage as possible. The breaks throughout the day, to the events at night are jam packed with value added speakers, awesome demo tables, amazing sponsors and fireside chats!
- The conversation will continue past this 2 full day event!
The stories that are shared and the conversations that you have will continue on social media even after you leave Dallas. These conversations will take place in the airport, the gym, in potential business collaborations and/or individual meetings. GallantFew consistently expresses the necessity and value of bringing communities together and forming connections. They are excited to provide examples and opportunities that can be implemented and injected into local community conversations.
If this hasn’t persuaded you yet, then consider that for the price of a ticket ( at just $35…say WHAT?!) you not only get access to VetXpo, but also a jam packed weekend with access to interactive demos, 10 speakers, hundreds of extraordinary individuals to network with and a few after hour parties where the conversation can continue. So what are you waiting for? Come join us in changing the conversation on October 26th to October 28th in Dallas Texas. Tickets start at just $35! Get your tickets at www.vetxpo.com
