Doc Hendley started raising money to fight the water epidemic the best way he knew how, by pouring wine and playing music. He has worked in dozens of refugee camps installing water systems and is often inside dangerous "no-go" zones to distribute to water to people in need.

Commander Kirk Lippold takes his experiences from the military to the boardroom as he reveals the lessons he learned while leading the crew aboard the USS Cole following a devastating terrorist attack. As he shares his leadership philosophy, Lippold outlines the importance of understanding the human factors during a crisis and how those factors are used to teach one’s own "crew" or team how to prepare for what’s ahead. Lippold’s leadership experience will arm you with a military-grade approach to prepare for and take action when crisis strikes--because it’s not a matter of if, but when.
