The upcoming Friends of Scouting Annual Campaign Dinner will be held on Thursday, February 28th at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. We are honored and excited to announce that Captain Richard Phillips will be our keynote speaker for the evening.

Captain Phillips was Captain of the MV Maersk Alabama during its hijacking by Somali pirates, the first hijacking of a U.S. ship in more than 200 years. To protect his crew, Captain Phillips made a conscious decision to put himself directly in harm’s way, knowing full well that he might pay the ultimate price for his decision. Captain Phillips is author of A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, about his experience and remarkable rescue.

Captain Phillips will discuss the vital importance of leadership and teamwork, combined with a belief in the power and potential of yourself and your team, as seen through the eyes of an unassuming hero who conquered an extraordinary challenge.
