7| Navy Intelligence & Blackwater Operative / Hyperlocal AgTech Expert Richard Brion
/

Richard “Red” Brion is essentially an American ronin: a samurai without a master. Red has spent years in Navy intelligence, serving in Iraq, and years with Blackwater doing some amazing things in Japan and Afghanistan. He’s done quite a bit in Africa as well. And he’s recently made the move over the last couple of years, taking his skills and experience from masterless warrior to hyperlocal, urban agriculture.

As founder and CEO of Revolution Agriculture, Red is tackling the Global Food Security Problem through technology-enabled food production and land optimization. They have patented a system that makes it possible to grow virtually any crop, anywhere.

Daniella Young has been studying intense, interesting, and sometimes horrifying cultures her entire life. She was actually third-generation raised in one of the worst modern-day religious cults, known as the Children of God.

At the age of 15, she escaped this cult, got educated, moved her way into the army, where she became a captain in military intelligence. During her service, she deployed twice to Afghanistan, becoming one of the first women to conduct deliberate ground combat operations at a time when it was illegal for women to do this.

These days, she does organizational behavior, cultural strategy consulting and she’s a renowned international speaker including TED Talks, helping CEOs and business leaders develop and employee an intentional growth culture in their organizations.
