Speaker Name: Bret Hood, Formerly FBI Special Agent

  • "Willful Blindness: Why we fail to see what we need to see."  (2 Hours)
  • "You aren’t as ethical as you believe yourself to be." (2 Hours)

After serving 25 years as a Special Agent in the FBI, Michael “Bret” Hood became the director of 21st Century Learning & Consulting, LLC upon his retirement in 2016.  During his tenure with the FBI, Bret led and served in three different divisions finishing his career by spending the last four years as an adjunct professor of leadership and ethics for the University of Virginia at the prestigious FBI National Academy.

In 2010, Bret was selected to be part of an elite team tasked to develop a new executive leadership program for the FBI. As such, Bret joined the FBI Academy staff in 2012 and created unique and interactive courses on the psychology behind leadership, executive leadership, crisis leadership, ethical leadership, and contemporary issues in leadership.  Bret is also a federal court certified expert in financial crimes and money laundering.  Currently, Bret serves as an Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) faculty member and is also a forensic accounting professor for the University of Virginia and Mt. St. Mary’s University.  In 2018, Bret was rated as the top instructor at the ACFE’s headline event, the Global Fraud Conference, which had over 3,500 attendees and over 50 instructors.

Since 2000 (both with the FBI and post-retirement), Bret has taught Fortune 500 companies as well as top executives for various government entities on such topics as leadership, ethics, fraud, compliance, risk assessment, risk management, interviewing, and crisis leadership.  Bret is known for his unique and interactive approach to teaching where he triggers deep thinking by leveraging participant’s personal experiences with the topics being discussed.  Bret’s courses and instructional methods have led many participants to declare Bret’s classes as some of the best courses they have ever taken.

Bret is the author of the critically acclaimed books, Eat More Ice Cream: A Succinct Leadership Lesson for Each Week of the Year & Get Off Your Horse! 52 Succinct Leadership Lessons from U.S. Presidents.  Bret has a M.B.A. from Boston University and a B.S. in accounting from Southern Illinois University.

Sponsor Information

Chris Malkin of Edwards Jones

My journey to South Florida started in North Dakota, took me to Virginia and then to South Florida. The one thing I carried with me the whole way are my Midwest values, which never change no matter the climate. When I started, I committed myself to helping families navigate the complexities and pitfalls of investing so they could reach their life goals without stress. Think beyond retirement! I help clients enjoy them all, worry-free. I seek clients who are looking for a real relationship with their advisor to be a true partner in their financial success.
