Caleb Campbell At A Glance:

Once known as “America’s Athlete”, Caleb Campbell is a West Point graduate and former Army officer who became the second player in the history of West Point to ever be selected in the NFL draft and the first player, under a new policy implemented by the Department of Defense (DOD), given the permission to play and serve simultaneously.

Caleb’s dream came to a halt when the DOD rescinded that policy hours before signing his first NFL contract–launching him into his own internal war that would almost cost him his life. While serving his country, Caleb kept his NFL dream alive and eventually found himself playing in the NFL–demonstrating to audiences everywhere how facing our fears, committing to mental and emotional health and staying authentic will make us stronger—even in our weakest moments.

Far from offering clichéd "do better, be better" advice, Caleb skillfully guides his audience through discussions on vulnerability, emotional intelligence, heart-centered leadership and whole-person success. Above all, Caleb’s message acts as a powerful catalyst for internal transformation—fostering emotional, relational, and collective growth on an unmatched scale.

Caleb Campbell is a dynamic keynote speaker, coach, and mental health advocate known for his authentic and transformational message on high-capacity leadership, sustainable success, and mental and emotional well-being.

In 2008, Caleb graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point and was commissioned as an officer in the United States Army. However, Caleb’s path took a unique turn as he was also selected in the 2008 NFL Draft making him the second player to ever be drafted out of West Point and the first player, under a new Department of Defense policy, given the permission to serve and play simultaneously. Little did he know at the time, but Caleb was about to fight his own inner battle and it would almost cost him his life.

Now, fueled by his personal journey and commitment to emotional wellness, Caleb is on a mission to inspire leaders to live and lead with authenticity and courage. With his captivating storytelling and infectious energy, Caleb shares his powerful experiences from West Point, the NFL, and beyond to help leaders strengthen resilience, sustain high-performance and most importantly–enhance their overall well-being.

Far from offering clichéd “do better, be better” advice, Caleb skillfully guides his audience through discussions on courage, emotional intelligence, and heart-centered leadership. Caleb’s life mission is to continually demonstrate how facing our fears, embracing change, and staying authentic will make us stronger, even in our weakest moments.

When not on stage or working with leaders, Caleb can be found at home with his partner, Kara, and their daughter, Sophie London, trying to convince Kara that their daughter needs a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. While he hasn’t succeeded yet, Caleb remains determined to keep trying.

It didn’t matter the age or the leadership position of each person in the room, we all felt Caleb’s message at the core of our beings.

— Jill Christopherson, Sanford Health

This is the type of leadership message that we don’t hear enough but we need to hear more. Several leaders stayed back with tears in their eyes to let Caleb know how much they needed this.

— Antonia McLaren, USAA Site Leader

Caleb’s compelling story and actionable message not only met our leaders exactly where they are but he also gave us a clear roadmap on how to get to where we want to be. This wasn’t just a keynote, it was a lifeline for our leaders.
