In FY 2019, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States.

Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.

K.K., Air Force • Enterprise Perspective Seminar April 2014

I consider myself well-read, but this seminar opened many areas that will require additional study, consideration, and preparation. Well done!

T.H., Air Force • National and International Secuirty Leadership Seminar February 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

Absolutely enjoyed the program's overall structure. The moderator did a great job of weaving the different topics

End-to-end, an amazing group of speakers, with most diverse backgrounds. I could listen to each of the speakers for hours on end. Their collective knowledge is truly incredible.
