Michele Rigby Assad

What can covert counter terrorism missions tell you about leading boardroom meetings? How do dealings with terrorists give you business building insight? How can you use your advantages to gain purpose and an upper hand? Learn how to create your own destiny and apply intelligence lessons to workplace productivity, sales and team culture from a CIA spy who knows all about high stakes.

Michele began her career in an international relief and development organization in Washington, DC, before joining the CIA in 2002 to work as an intelligence officer in the Directorate of Operations, the covert arm of the agency. Specializing in counterterrorism and counterintelligence issues, Michele worked in Iraq and other secret Middle Eastern locations before transitioning to the private sector as a public speaker, author, trainer, and international security consultant.

Her book Breaking Cover: My Secret Life in the CIA and What It Taught Me about What’s Worth Fighting For, was released February 2018 and is currently in production to be made into a major motion picture.

Nick Sarillo

What Metrics Drive Your Business? During your time with Nick, you’ll focus on uncovering the metrics and techniques you can use to drive your business to even higher levels of performance, based on his experiences running a highly successful family-owned business franchise.

[Check out Nick’s video here]

Someone who has been in the trenches and done it is the most powerful teacher. Nick Sarillo is the founder and CEO of Nick’s Pizza & Pub and Nick’s University. Founded in 1995, Nick’s Pizza & Pub is one of the top ten busiest independent pizza companies in per-store sales in the United States.

Nick’s Pizza & Pub has margins nearly twice that of the average pizza restaurant. In an industry in which the average annual turnover rate is more than 150 percent, Nick’s Pizza and Pub boasts a less than 25 percent employee turnover rate. Incredible when you consider 70 percent or more of his employees are under the age of 25! Nick’s University offers hands-on experiential learning, one and two-day classes, as well as online training courses.
