Vincent Boles

Former Army Chief Operating Officer, Coach, Leader, and Logistics Guru

2024 ACE Summit Thought Leadership Keynote 

8:00 AM - 9:15 AM

Six weeks before the attacks of September 11, 2001, Maj. Gen. Boles was a newly selected one-star general, taking charge of a contingency command that would be needed by the nation if “the worst thing happened.” On September 11th, the worst did happen — and Maj. Gen. Boles and his team went from planning to execution in an ever-fluid environment.

Across five continents and over eight years of this persistent conflict, as a combat commander, coach, trainer, leader and logistics guru, Maj. Gen. Boles has built teams that have consistently gotten the right item to the right place at the right time under the tremendous pressures of war. The author of 4-3-2-1 Leadership, Maj. Gen. Boles mixes anecdotes from the front lines of combat and the halls of the Pentagon to help audiences and organizations understand how to maximize their most precious resource — their people. Today, he is the president of Vincent E. Boles Inc; a leadership and logistics consulting practice.

Chaunte Lowe

4-Time Olympian; Author; TEDx Speaker; Breast Cancer Thriver

2024 ACE Summit Inspirational Keynote

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM 

Chaunte Lowe doesn’t strive to just break the mold — she vaults over it, leaving it behind her in the dust. This four-time Olympian’s impressive rise started while she was just a sophomore at Georgia Tech when she made her first Olympic appearance. Her ambitions on the field and in the classroom showed an unparalleled drive even among the Institute’s top student-athletes. Chaunte is a world champion and has broken the American record three times and is the current American record holder in indoor and outdoor high jump. She’s competed in four Olympic Games and aspired to add a fifth. In addition to her athleticism, she has used her personal experiences to raise awareness of breast cancer research, early detection, and eradication. In 2019, she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Despite the diagnosis, she continued to train through surgeries and chemotherapy to stay competitive for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. With the 2020 Olympics postponed, she maintained her training determined to continue to use her voice to bring awareness to breast cancer. “The best gift I can give with my life is helping others find beauty in their own lives,” she says.
