The guest speaker at this week’s RINGKNOCKER Virtual Meetup is Emily Harman (USNA ’85).

Emily has 38 years of service to her country as both a Naval Officer and civilian, retiring as a member of the Senior Executive Service in May 2019. A trailblazer, Emily was in the sixth class of women to graduate from the U. S. Naval Academy. Commissioned a Supply Corps Officer, Emily was one of the first two Supply Officers aboard USS EMORY S LAND (AS-39) to qualify as a Surface Warfare Officer. Recognized as a role model, Emily served as a Company Officer and Leadership Instructor at the Naval Academy.

As a DON civilian, Emily served as a Contracting Officer for professional services and major weapons systems in support of Naval Aviation. Her last assignment was as a member of the Senior Executive Service, serving as the Director of the Department of the Navy’s Office of Small Business Programs. In this role, she served as the chief advisor to the Secretary of the Navy and Navy and Marine Corps leadership on all small business matters.

Upon retirement in 2019, Emily founded the Onward Movement which seeks to inspire at least 10,000 people to embrace authenticity and release the fear of judgment so they can pursue their dreams with confidence. As a personal coach, Emily guides her clients on a path to lead an authentic and fulfilling life through her Onward Accelerator Coaching Program. She coaches small business owners in the areas of authentic leadership and developing an entrepreneurial mindset as well as how to conduct business with the federal government. As host of  the Onward Podcast, Emily has conversations with her guests about facing adversity, moving forward, and discovering ourselves along the way.

Emily is a contributing author to the #1 Bestseller Becoming a GovCon Expert: How to Accelerate Your Success in Government Contracting. She’ll also be speaking at the 6th Annual GovCon Summit this April. Attend this event and learn tactics and strategies that have helped thousands of companies win over $2.8 Billion in government contracts from six of the Nation’s top GovCon experts.

This week, Emily will share her personal story of how she let go of the shoulds to create a life that she loves. Emily faced challenges throughout her life and she kept moving forward, ultimately becoming a Senior Executive in the Department of the Navy. Yet, she still felt unfulfilled. Emily will share her  journey toward discovering her purpose in life and how, looking back, she can see how everything fell into place. Let Emily’s story inspire you to reflect upon your life so you can create a life that you love if you haven’t already.
