Co-Founder and CEO of Team Rubicon
Jake Wood is the cofounder and CEO of Team Rubicon, a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and deploys military veterans to disaster zones around the world and within the United States. Since 2010, Team Rubicon has scaled to 100,000 volunteers and deployed teams to some of the worst catastrophes of the century. Jake is the author of the best-selling memoir, Once a Warrior: How One Veteran Found a New Mission Closer to Home (2020).
As a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, Wood deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan as a Scout Sniper and earned the Navy-Marine Commendation Medal. A leading veterans’ advocate, Wood has briefed President Obama on veterans’ issues, met with former Presidents Bush and Clinton on veteran transition and disaster response and testified before a Senate committee to improve mental health care services for returning veterans. He has also appeared in the major media, including MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, Al Jazeera, US News & World Report, Forbes, Fox News and penned an op-ed for The New York Times. In 2014, Crown Publishing published Wood’s first book, Take Command: Lessons in Leadership.
World Champion Triathlete and High-Performance Coach
Siri Lindley barely knew how to swim when she began the training regimen that would lead her to conquer prestigious triathlons such as the ITU World Championships. Today, as the world’s former #1 ranked triathlete, an in-demand coach, one of Tony Robbins favorite motivational speakers, and cancer survivor, Siri has made it her business to change lives for the better.
Siri shares fear-shattering strategies for changing the thoughts, habits, and behaviors that hold people and organizations back. With an infectious and authentic passion, she empowers audiences to strive for peak performance, work through and ultimately conquer the demons of fear and self-doubt.
Siri failed early and often before she found her formula for success and shares the story of how her early insecurities caused and controlled much of that failure. At the age of 23, she was disowned by her father after coming out as gay and blamed him for everything bad that went on in her life. She also suffered from chronic performance anxiety that sabotaged her early competitions until she met an eccentric coach who helped transform her into a world champion. In turn, she now coaches many of the world’s top athletes, helping them heighten their performance.
"It was wonderful that many of the Rave team members were involved in all levels of this event. It was also special to see that the end users and guests knew many of them. The Rave Summit could not have been better...unless we were all together in person. Thanks for all of the great ideas and camaraderie."
