Energy Central, the largest global power industry community, announced that Lt. General Russel Honoré, USA (Ret.), who took charge of military relief efforts in Hurricane Katrina-battered New Orleans in 2005, will be a keynote speaker at the upcoming Utility Analytics Week event in New Orleans, October 28-30, 2015.
General Honoré Keynote: Lessons Learned from Katrina and Beyond
Based on his personal experiences in Katrina and the military, General Honoré shares bold leadership strategies and insights into preparedness which are appropriate for this post-Katrina world.
Gen. Honoré has translated his no-nonsense leadership approach to businesses and organizations to help them better identify and prepare for the challenges of the future. With an emphasis on the importance of innovation, risk assessment and social entrepreneurship, he provides valuable insight and strategies for the public and private sector to solve a broad array of issues—from jobs and energy to healthcare and technology. He also reveals leadership tactics that optimize efficiency and effectiveness of operations for all sectors and outlines the importance of developing the next generation of problem-solvers.
Creating a Culture of Preparedness
Gen. Honoré’s valuable insight is based on decades of experience directing military operations. In his recent book, Leadership in the New Normal, he extends rare perspective on our current state of the “New Normal,” where all stakeholders have a role in creating a “Culture of Preparedness,” to safeguard our economy and natural resources.
A senior scientist with The Gallup Organization, he is also an adjunct professor at Emory University, an independent director of Crawford & Company, and serves as chairman of the board for La Bicentennial Commission, and as a member on the Louisiana Disaster Recovery Foundation board.
