Dennis Brouwer (DLBrouwer)
D.L. Brouwer is the author of The Return on Leadership, a book that defines and quantifies the impact of the leader on growth in people, teams and markets. In The Return on Leadership, he combines his hands-on experience as a front-line leader with the curiosity of the social scientist, and communicates it all in the writing style he learned as City Editor of a small-town newspaper. He’s led the turnaround of a global cloud services business, co-founded a software company, and flown from US aircraft carriers in search of Soviet submarines at the height of the Cold War. Most recently, he led sales at the Washington Speakers Bureau, where his team connected the world’s most inspiring visionaries with audiences in 26 countries. He is an avid brewer of fine beers, lives with his wife Rebecca on a small farm in northern Virginia and rides his motorcycle just enough to keep it interesting.
