2024 Independents Conference Keynote Confirmed!

Strengthen every relationship you build. Gain more impact and influence in your life and your business at AFSA’s 2024 Independents Conference & Expo.

AFSA is pleased to announce that Lt. Col. (ret.) Scott Mann will keynote the 2024 Independents Conference & Expo at the Marriott Harbor Beach in Fort Lauderdale, Fl., May 20-23.

Described as the “Warrior Storyteller,” Lt. Col. Scott Mann is a retired U.S. Army Green Beret who specialized in unconventional, high-impact special operations missions in do-or-die environments across the globe.

In a distinguished 23-year military career, Lieutenant Colonel Mann operated at the highest levels of the Special Operations Community, widely recognized for his successful leadership of teams in complex situations.

He grabbed global headlines when, alongside fellow Green Beret veterans and other volunteers, he led “Pineapple Express” — a grassroots leadership campaign using Rooftop Human Connection Skills to honor a promise and save more than 1,000 Afghans from a life-threatening situation amid America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Mann brings an innovative approach to problem solving — one that has empowered people from all walks of life to get surrounded on purpose to achieve something much greater than themselves.

Following his military service, Mann founded Rooftop Leadership, a professional training and coaching program designed to help high-performing, servant leaders forge deeper connections with the people they serve to create more powerful outcomes in business and life. His training program incorporates leadership and rapport-building principles to organizations in any industry and outlines how today’s leaders can make better human connections in high-stakes, low-trust environments.

Join us in Fort Lauderdale for a morning of compelling and dynamic storytelling, with lessons learned from leading critical missions, and that demonstrate transformative relationship-building techniques and decision-making skills that are key to establishing high-trust organizations.

Lt. Col. Mann advocates on behalf of our troops before Congress and on national media outlets, including CNN, Fox, and ABC. In addition to his speaking, Lt. Col. Mann channels is a playwright and actor in “Last Out,” his recent play-brought-to-film illustrating the unforeseen costs of war on our veterans — available on Amazon Prime.
