On Thursday, November 15th, Rob “Waldo” Waldman and his identical twin Dave Waldman will host the first annual Ultimate Wingman Banquet, honoring three special service members (either stationed in or currently a resident of Georgia) who have served their country above and beyond the call of duty.
The event will take place at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta from 6:30-9:30 p.m. It is presented by Verizon Wireless and the Wingman Foundation, launched by Rob and Dave in January 2011. The Foundation raises funds and awareness for soldiers, veterans, and their families in need. A portion of event proceeds will go to Hire Heroes USA, and then each service member honored will make a charitable contribution of his or her choice to a non-profit that supports fellow service members.
Tickets are $100 and you can purchase them at http://theultimatewingman.com
Lt. Gen. Dana Atkins (president of The Augusta Chronicle) country singer Ansel Brown and comedian Steve Rizzo are all participants in the program.
Dave and Rob Waldman grew up being each other’s wingman: encouraging and lifting each other up to live the American dream. In the process, they’ve learned the true meaning of teamwork, trust, courage, and service.
Rob is a motivational speaker and author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, Never Fly Solo. Known as “The Wingman,” he has been featured on Fox News, CNN and The Harvard Business Review. Visit www.YourWingman.com for more information.
Rob overcame massive claustrophobia and a fear of heights during his time in the Air Force. He believes that the key to building a culture of trust lies with your wingmen – the men and women in your life who help you to overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and achieve success. In business and life, you should never fly solo! The solution to winning when the heat is on lies in the ability of every wingman in your organization, regardless of their role, to support the team and be 100 percent committed to the mission.
Dave is a successful entrepreneur, career coach, fitness and nutrition expert, and all-natural bodybuilding champion. Their goal is to spread the Wingman message of service, courage, and trust to all of America
