Part of being a woman in business is dealing with the constant pressure to be perfect, especially for those who dare to dream big and fulfill leadership potential. With the right mindset, the pursuit of perfection can spur us on to excellence — however, more often than not, it can stop our momentum in its tracks.
As the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy, Carey Lohrenz is used to working in fast moving, dynamic environments where inconsistent execution can generate catastrophic results.
The same challenges are found in business: markets change, customer needs evolve and if you do not adapt quickly, your company is at risk. In her motivating and engaging keynote presentations, Carey shares her fascinating experiences operating in one of the world’s most challenging environments – an aircraft carrier. She is uniquely qualified in the fundamentals of winning under pressure, reducing errors and overcoming obstacles. Her mastery of these fundamentals can help your team triumph in this high-risk, time crunched world.
“An honor to meet Carey Lohrenz today at Dell World. I’m inspired by your story!”

“I just wanted to let you know how wonderful it was to have Carey speak at our event last week! We were honored have Carey at our final executive education session for 2015. She is so down to earth, amazingly inspiring, and beyond engaging! She has the seamless ability to connect her military experience with leadership in the business world. As I’ve returned to the workplace more than one person has quoted her in various settings; from “80%” to ‘If you lose sight, you lose the fight’ and many others. I highly recommend her as a speaker and feel privileged to have met her! She Rocks – Go Fearless Leadership!”
Diane Krieger AVP, HR/L&D Bethpage Federal Credit Union
