David Marquet

Retired US Navy Captain and Bestselling author

Student of leadership and organizational design, former nuclear submarine commander, and author of Amazon #1 Best Seller: Turn the Ship Around!

Captain Marquet served in the U.S. submarine force for 28 years. After being assigned to command the nuclear powered submarine USS Santa Fe – at the time ranked last in retention and operational standing, he realized the traditional leadership approach of take control, give orders, wouldn’t work. As a result, he turned the ship around by treating the crew as leaders, not followers, and giving control, not taking control. This approach took the Santa Fe from worst to first, achieving the highest retention and operational standings in the navy.

Captain Marquet is one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 100 Leadership Speakers for 2018.
