The Council for Responsible Nutrition has announced that Jake Wood, CEO of Team Rubicon and author of “Take Command: Lessons in Leadership—How to Be a First Responder in Business” will speak at its Annual Symposium for the Dietary Supplement Industry.

Wood co-founded Team Rubicon—a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and deploys military veterans to communities impacted by disasters—in the wake of the Haiti earthquake in 2010. Prior to this, he served in the US Marine Corps for four years, during which he was deployed as a scout sniper to Iraq and Afghanistan. He left the Marine Corps as a sergeant.

“Jake Wood is skilled in connecting his lessons learned on the front lines with challenges high-performing leaders are facing in today’s unpredictable and fast-paced business environment,”​ said Steve Mister, president & CEO, CRN.

“Although we may not have the heroic experiences of leading a tour of Marines through an ambush or rushing to bring emergency relief to a disaster area, the dietary supplement industry executives attending ‘The Conference’ have a desire to achieve clarity of mind and purpose amidst chaos.

“By attending this closing session on Saturday, attendees are guaranteed to leave with tools to achieve peak performance, to operate with agility and to adapt during the most trying of circumstances.” 

Wood will take to the stage on the final day of ‘The Conference’: Saturday, November 9

CRN’s annual conference takes place Wednesday, Nov. 6, through Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad, CA. For more information and to register, please click HERE​.
