About
Professionally Mr. Lefford Fate has led, mentored, and served thousands of military members and their families. He spent nearly 31 years in the US Air Force and retired as Command Chief of the 20th Fighter Wing. A Chief is the top of the enlisted structure. It is the highest enlisted rank you can achieve, a great honor. As Command Chief, Lefford was the senior ranking enlisted person on the base and was responsible for the care, development and welfare of 5000+ people. Since retiring from the military, he has worked in various capacities. He was the program director for a geriatric outpatient mental health program, Director for Health Service within the SC Department of Corrections and is currently the Director of Support Services for the City of Sumter, South Carolina. Lefford is certified to facilitate, speak, train and coach individuals and groups in the areas of leadership development, professional skills and personal growth.

Mr. Fate is a husband, father, and grandfather. He knows it is not always easy to juggle our list of daily responsibilities. This makes it all the more important to have a structured, practical plan in place to avoid becoming overwhelmed. He holds a Master's Degree in Human Relations and a Bachelor's Degree in Social Psychology. Each day, he models the core values of Integrity first, Service before self and Excellence in all that he does. Lefford has learned tools and skills to enhance his own productivity, development and decision-making skills in order to create a more balanced lifestyle for both himself and his family. He greatly looks forward to sharing with you the leadership skills that he has learned over the last three decades.

Lefford specilizes in Leadership, Teamwork, Communications and Personal Development.

He is an excellent speaker and presenter with a passion for inspiring his audiences both young and not so young.

Lefford was fantastic to work with, from original bid, quick responses, questions and answers, everything. Right away, even though there were several excellent bids, I knew that Mr. Lefford Fate was THE man for the job. In planning a five year anniversary reunion for cast and crew of a military play I had directed, I wanted him as keynote speaker for a dinner program that would also include patriotic skits and Lefford portraying one of the characters in the play. He had a thorough survey for me to complete, so he could plan the best presentation that fit perfectly. With the venue hitches that I tried to foresee but did not, nothing kept him from succeeding.

Lefford Fate’s Response:

David and the Defiance crew were exceptional. It was a wonderful event and I truly enjoyed myself. The only problem is now I want to be a Thespian!!!! All kidding aside this was a professional event honoring military and veterans. They did an amazing job and I look forward to working with David and Denise in the future. I have already but the 10-year reunion on my calendar.
