Fighter Pilot Bruce Bright Plans Mission to PALS 2016


LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the upcoming P&A Leadership Summit anticipate a stirring motivational keynote address from Lt. Col. Bruce Bright, USMC (ret.) at the event, which will be held Aug. 30–31 at Paris Las Vegas.

Bright’s session, “Execute Like a Fighter Pilot: 5 Action Steps to Lead Your Company to Greatness,” will begin at noon on Tuesday, Aug. 30, as part of the event’s welcome luncheon.

The speaker, who served in a similar capacity at May’s Dealer Summit, will deliver a five-point plan based on his experiences as an infantryman, F/A-18 fighter pilot and commanding officer in the U.S. Marine Corps and in his second career as a real estate entrepreneur.

“In Lt. Col. Bright, we have a speaker who has demonstrated unflappable confidence in combat as well as in the business world,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of P&A magazine. “We have much to learn from him and we are honored that he has agreed to share his experiences and strategies at our event.”
