Donovan Campbell’s lessons about leadership and teamwork came the hard way, through three combat deployments—two in Iraq and one in Afghanistan.
Donovan has over a decade of experience leading teams in some of the most demanding environments imaginable – both on and off the battlefield – and he is passionate about bringing a focus on building individual character into the workplace.
He was awarded the Combat Action Ribbon and a Bronze Star with Valor for his time in Iraq.
He is the author of the New York Times bestseller "Joker One: A Marine Platoon’s Story of Courage, Leadership, and Brotherhood," which Bing West has called “the finest small-unit description of a platoon at war in Iraq” and which Entertainment Weekly has said “isn’t as much a story of war as it is a story of love.”
It was also recently named one of “The Best Military Books of the Decade” by Military Times.
