Field Programs


In FY 2018, 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 field 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. The seminar can be designed to address specific issues and areas of concern to the attendees.

 

Program Description


The world has shrunk and become more interdependent. As a result, many issues transcend national boundaries and cannot be easily subsumed under traditional geo-political categories. This seminar will address great power rivalries and the regional conflicts that are shaped by social, political, economic, and even planetary forces. This one-day program will bring together established experts and commentators, as well as key players in the national and international arenas, to evaluate current crises and policies within the context of on-going and emerging transnational trends.

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.

USCG Attendee, White House Workshop • September, 2014

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.

Excellent course, provided me some valuable insight into important issues. I leave here better equipped as a leader.
