Fred Grooms

Fred Grooms is a decorated veteran Army officer. He has trained thousands of soldiers, civilians, and student’s in the basic leadership skills necessary to lead themselves and others. He uses the military model of leadership as the backdrop for teaching students and adults about leadership, character, and resiliency.

Patriotism comes naturally for Fred. He has a long family history of military service. However, becoming an Army officer wasn’t easy for Fred. As a dyslexic, he struggled throughout his schooling; literally having to talk his way into the leading Senior Military University in the nation. He later graduated as a distinguished military student, and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the US Army.

His Army career progressed for 12 years both as an active duty and reserve officer. Fred went on to complete his Master’s degree in business marketing and in education.  He has worked with a top level Fortune 25 company, non-profit organizations, and led a successful student ministry for 20 years. Fred has taken his love for students, leadership and teaching into his new career as a student speaker and trainer.

Fred is a three time Amazon bestselling author. His #1 bestselling student leadership book is titled; B.A.S.I.C. The Student Leadership Field Manual. He has recently released the companion book; Leaders Marching Forward – The Advanced Student Leadership Field Manual.

On stage you’ll witness his military flare when he physically engages the audience. Be ready to get on your feet, call cadence, laugh, and be inspired to take command.
