Wednesday May 20, 2020
Waldner Performing Arts Center at York College of Pennsylvania
Navy SEAL Team Leader Rob O’Neill to be Guest and Keynote at Manufacturers’ Association’s 2020 Annual Event
(York, Pa.) – Robert O’Neill, Former SEAL Team Six Leader, Naval Special Warfare Development Group, and a New York Times best-selling author, will be the evening’s guest and keynote speaker Wednesday, May 20 for The Manufacturers’ Associations’ 2020 Annual Event.
O’Neill is one of the most highly-decorated combat veterans of our time and the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir ‘The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior.’ A former SEAL Team Six leader, he deployed more than a dozen times and held combat leadership roles in more than 400 combat missions in four different theaters of war. Highly trained, O’Neill led the military’s most elite and was involved in many of our nation’s most important campaigns.
“We at the Association are pleased to welcome Mr. O’Neill to southcentral Pennsylvania,” said Tom Palisin, the Association’s executive director. Having trained more than 800 special operations and tactical operators, O’Neill brings his unique expertise to organizations and translates his elite SEAL team training into high-impact, actionable insights on leadership, decision-making, operating in uncertain environments, and how to become the ‘best of the best.’
“We are, as always, grateful for the support of our regional business community ─ led particularly again by our platinum sponsor, RKL ─ which allows us to underwrite an evening of business networking, awards for outstanding manufacturers, and a fascinating keynote, ‘An Engagement With Rob O’Neill,’ said Palisin.
One of the nation’s most decorated veterans, O’Neill has been decorated more than 52 times with honors, including two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars with Valor, a Joint Service Commendation Medal with Valor, three Presidential Unit citations, and two Navy/Marine Corps Commendations with Valor.
The evening will also provide a glimpse into O’Neill’s work since leaving the military, as co-founder of Your Grateful Nation, which provides individualized transition support for Special Operations heroes and their families. The organization provides executive-level mentoring, transition services, and family stabilization support.
Seating is limited. Tickets for the event will be $90 per guest, with a discounted rate of $75 for U.S. service veterans and active military. Details concerning ticket sales will be announced shortly by the association.
The Association’s annual gathering ─ hosted this year on May 20 at York College of Pennsylvania in York ─ is well-known for bringing together upwards of 750 business and community leaders for an evening of business networking, great cuisine, and the opportunity to recognize outstanding manufacturers from throughout the region for their contributions to business and community during the previous year.
