Opening Keynote: From Battlefield to COVID-19 Emergency Room–Leadership Under Pressure by Dr. Sudip Bose
Join us Monday, May 24; 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. CT, as Dr. Sudip Bose walks us through his lessons on Leadership Under Pressure.
From combat medical service in Iraq to the front lines of COVID-stricken emergency rooms, Dr. Bose takes audiences through some of his most daunting experiences leading in times of crisis. As one of America’s foremost doctors in mass casualties, disaster care, PTSD, and now the coronavirus pandemic, Dr. Bose passionately believes that, even in a world of doom and gloom, we can brave chaos, act confidently, and live healthfully. With inspiring optimism, Dr. Bose shares battle-proven strategies to stay grounded in the face of overwhelming circumstances, lead under pressure and make tough decisions.
As a battalion surgeon during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Dr. Sudip Bose’s service earned him the Bronze Star to distinguish between completing one of the most extended combat tours by a physician since World War II. He is also the U.S. physician who treated Saddam Hussein after U.S. forces captured him from the spider hole.
During the Second Battle of Fallujah, he provided medical care in the streets while being protected by overhead snipers — he understands how to thrive in the extreme. Dr. Bose is one of America’s most experienced doctors on mass casualty, disaster care, and PTSD. He most recently designed a two-year emergency training program for the ER team in Odessa, Texas. Incredibly, his highly prepared team was able to put his cutting-edge principles into action following the horrific shootings there in 2019.
He characterizes his service in the Army as a humbling and transformational experience. He talks about the profound impact of treating war casualties, performing life-saving procedures during raids and patrols, and offering humanitarian care in Baghdad. Dr. Bose uses his experiences in the ER and on the battlefield to help audiences understand how to lead lives of impact and service.

Closing Keynote: Workplace of the Future—New Rules for a New World by Mike Walsh
Join us Wednesday, May 26; 3:30 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. CT as Mike Walsh explores the Workplace of the Future-New Rules for a New World.
Walsh will speak about how COVID-19 hastened the arrival of a radical new future of work. While for many of us, working from home has been a new and unexpected challenge, Walsh contends it is just the start of a much bigger transformation that will reshape the nature of business itself.
To survive, every organization will have to virtualize. Whether it be serving customers through digital channels or leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), algorithms, and automation to ensure business continuity — we are likely to experience a decade’s worth of change in the next 12 months. For leaders, now, more than ever is the time to upgrade their capabilities, embrace new technologies, and reimagine what they do.
Walsh’s inspiring keynote presentation will offer IH/OEHS professionals insights into the organizations and leaders that are successfully navigating this period of change and how to create a playbook for their own transformation. Becoming future-proof is more than just about getting through the current crisis—it is about being ready for the new world that awaits us on the other side.
