News Detail - Carey Lohrenz

U.S. Navy’s first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot to give Todd Lecture

Carey Lohrenz, Female Motivational Speaker
Saturday, June 1, 2019

Vermont Business Magazine Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies is proud to welcome Carey Lohrenz, the first female F-14 Tomcat fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy, as the 2019 Residency Conference keynote and Todd Lecture Series speaker on Wednesday, June 19, at 7 p.m. in Mack Hall auditorium for a talk on “Lessons in Leadership.”

This lecture is free and open to the public.

Lohrenz knows what it takes to win in one of the highest pressure, most extreme environments imaginable: in the cockpit at Mach 2. Her experience and message supports Norwich University's goal to be a learning community that is "global in perspective, engaged in personal and intellectual transformation and dedicated to knowledge, mutual respect, creativity and service."

Having flown missions worldwide as a combat mission-ready Navy pilot, 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 keynote presentation, Lohrenz will share her fascinating experiences operating in one of the world's most challenging environments – an aircraft carrier.

Lohrenz's timely message about high performing teams and developing a culture of learning is based on the best-practices of high reliability organizations. The process, “Prepare, Perform, Prevail,” helps businesses manage risk while becoming a high performing organization. Her ability to connect with a broad audience and on a one-on-one level, coupled with her knowledge and experience in leading high-performing, diverse teams, has made her highly sought after as a business consultant and speaker.

Lohrenz is a powerhouse in the field of delivering engaging leadership and diversity training that directly impacts success. Her experience in the all-male environment of fighter aviation and her ability to pass on the lessons learned in her career allows her to deliver insight and guidance from a credible platform on women’s leadership Issues.

In addition to serving as Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies 2019 Residency Conference keynote speaker, Lohrenz has delivered her leadership and strategy experience to companies as diverse as Cisco, Dell, TEVA, Deloitte, Underwriters Laboratories, Verizon, AT&T, Kimberly Clark, State Farm Insurance, and Sea Ray Boats.

Lohrenz is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin where she was a varsity rower, also training at the pre-Olympic level. After graduation, she attended the Navy’s Aviation Officer Candidate School before starting flight training and her naval career. She is currently working on her Master’s in Business Administration in Strategic Leadership.

Lohrenz’s lecture is the keynote presentation for this year’s annual residency conference of 497 students representing 13 online graduate programs and 6 bachelor’s degree completion programs at Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies. Gathering from across the country and around the globe under the theme of “Celebrating 200 Years of Distinction,” these Norwich students will come together for a week of capstone and culminating academic work and conferences.

Norwich University’s Todd Lecture Series is named in honor of retired U.S. Army Major General Russell Todd and his late wife, Carol, in gratitude for their dedicated service to the university. General Todd, a 1950 graduate of the university, also serves as president emeritus. With this series, Norwich brings national thought leaders from business, politics, the arts, science, the military and other fields and endeavors to its Northfield campus.
