Field Programs


In FY19-20, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each national program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill. Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.

 

Program Description


Many hoped the end of the cold war would usher in an era of free market competition and moderate political objectives. Unfortunately, that promise seems to be evaporating.

There are many dimensions of national and international security—spatial, cyber, political, economic, etc. This seminar will explore key security issues that are shaping our domestic and foreign policy. These include new geopolitical threats, economic globalization and its discontents, criminal conspiracies and terrorism, innovative and disruptive technologies—including artificial intelligence and information competition.

Whether the issues are political, economic, cultural, or ideological, together they form a dynamic challenge to the wisdom and the resources of our foreign policy and defense leadership. The following list will offer Air Force attendees a template of the type of issues that will likely be discussed.

Really Outstanding, will highly recommend to others. Highly professional, thoughtful and experienced classmates greatly added to my positive experience in this class.

W. Smith, Pentagon

Format is terrific! Lots of speakers from across government enterprise and no power points. Plenty of time for engaging dialogue. I love to hear what experts and insiders have to say about out WDC enterprise.

J. Haywood, Wright Patterson Air Force Base

Very good insights. I appreciate the world-class experts you assemble.

P.G., Air Force • Transnational Issues Seminar April 2017

The experience and breadth of knowledge of all the speakers was spectacular. Their chosen topics for discussion were absolutely relevant to this audience and we were provided several themes that help to guide our planning assumptions.

J.C., Joint Enabling Capabilities Command • Professional Development Course February 2017

Without a doubt the best seminar/training program I have ever experienced during 40 years in federal service. I would take this course once a quarter if possible and have all my people do so also.
