Which President enjoyed cold catsup on his lumpy cottage cheese? How come President Lincoln spent more time at another tavern eating - than the one he owned? Is it true the first lady was screaming at the top of her lungs at Camp David with Secret Service flooding the house bearing machine guns and rocket launchers? Which President punched a waiter in the face at the White House and broke his jaw? Is it true the Chefs have burned food and ruined it by accident and then what do you do? Why did President Washington send the White House Chef slave, Hercules, away every couple of months? Why would President Jefferson rip-off and then hide rice sewn into the lining of his coat while in Italy (violating international law) and destroying a top countries market? Which President was a real Chef and loved cooking - even BBQing on the White House roof?

Excellent program ideas for your next meeting, convention or fund-raising dinner!

Name: Marti Mongiello, CSCS (SS/SW), USN, Ret.

Title: Successful Vetrepreneur, former White House chef, former Camp David Resort manager

Presentation: EAT – LOVE - PLAY – war, leadership and brick walls

Steven Seagal once said in the film, Under Siege, “I’m just the cook,” as he had run afoul and gotten into trouble as a SEAL. In Marti’s case he once went bankrupt, was a high-school drug-user, spent time in the slammer and also was branded a LOSER with Non-Judicial Punishment proceedings on his federal record. “Once at the bottom, there is nowhere to go but up!” He retired after 21-years in the military, serving on three continents, and learning six languages in numerous wars, living in Asia and Europe as a very highly decorated veteran. “I wanted to change my life and turn myself around with my Admiral’s help.” Taking care of Presidents’, a Queen, a King or Prince’s became his specialty. He starts his program by serving dessert. With 22 veterans committing suicide each day in America his message of winning showcases how vets, or anyone down, can succeed – despite all odds. His business and marketing plans are sold worldwide via Business Plan Pro, he owns eight companies from an Inn, to consulting for resorts to trademarks and CPG creation. “You can ask any investor if they have ever actually lived with sharks, or spent months inside the ocean - and every single one will say no, they never have. I have and also did it at the North Pole.” In the past 24 months he has been seen on NBC Nightly News, CNN International to 212 countries, a PBS special and in 126 newspapers and magazines including the Washington Post, FOOD TV Network Magazine and the London Times.
