In 2003, Eric Maddox orchestrated the capture of America’s number one enemy, Saddam Hussein. Thrust, unprepared into the War in Iraq, Eric was forced to rely on innovation, teamwork and the power of network-driven intelligence collection to accomplish the mission. His message on leadership, effective listening and breaking through the status quo is one that will resonate with everyone.

Hear Eric’s story of working with the Delta Force Special Operations and interrogating over 300 prisoners that provided details of the location of Saddam Hussein on his last day in Iraq.

For his service Eric was awarded the Legion of Merit, the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement, the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Director’s Award and the Bronze Star.
