Murphy Veterans Tribute GALA 2022

2022 Gala Highlights

Guest Speaker: Brian Fleming

Brian Fleming is an inspiring military keynote speaker. He is a combat-wounded Afghanistan war veteran, international speaker, and resilience trainer who helps people be more resilient in tough, turbulent situations. He was severely wounded in action by a suicide bomber who exploded 3-feet away from him in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and now he teaches strategies for overcoming unexpected challenges.

Over the past decade as an author and military keynote speaker, Brian has spoken to over half a million people in live audiences across 42 US states, in 7 countries, and on 4 continents and has been featured on every major news network in the United States on his topic. He speaks for associations, conventions, and Fortune 500 audiences of all sizes–his smallest audience was 7 people and his largest to date is over 30,000!
