For Sales Convention 2021, we didn’t just go big. We went SKY HIGH by securing former combat pilot, former police officer and world-famous presenter Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour as our keynote speaker.
Featured on OPRAH, CNN, MSNBC and FOX, with credits speaking for hundreds of organizations like Walmart, Bank of America, Shell, T-Mobile and more, there’s no one who embodies an Unstoppable spirit more than Vernice.
In a record-breaking three years, Vernice catapulted her career from beat cop to combat pilot, becoming America’s very first African American female combat pilot.
But her remarkable resumé doesn’t stop there. A Tennessee native and graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, FlyGirl holds two honorary doctorates, was a Diversity Liaison Officer to the Pentagon for Headquarters Marine Corps and is a member of the COMCAST/NBCUniversal Joint Diversity Council. She has received numerous awards as a pioneering pilot, including her commanding role in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). She was the first African American woman on the Nashville Police Department’s motorcycle squad, a Camp Pendleton Female Athlete of the Year, two-time titleholder in the Camp Pendleton Strongest Warrior Competition, and a running back for the women’s professional football team, the San Diego Sunfire. Her signature book, “Zero to Breakthrough™” was published by Penguin in 2011, and she’s currently working on her next one.
In Las Vegas next year, Vernice will motivate with her renowned “Get Gutsy” mindset. She defeated adversity. She obliterated immense challenges and ultimately, was able to find incredible success. Vernice’s tale is marked by extraordinary accomplishments, grit and dedication … and those are the same ideals she’ll inspire when she speaks to you.
