Outstanding program! Timely and relevant material that I can use as a senior Air Force leader who will engage with the American public. I would highly recommend this leadership seminar. Very well done! You stretched my intellectual thought process and understanding of these issuesAir Force Attendee, May 2014
The exposure to these experts and their wide and varied opinions was fascinating for me. Making sense of the world we live in and overlaying that with U.S. national security interests is the “Kobayashi Maru” of our time…loved it!!!T.K., Air Force • National and International Secuirty Leadership Seminar March 2017

Exceptionally relevant topics and highly-credentialed speakers; very thought-provoking, in a great way; all speakers were appropriate as were the topics. As well-run and organized a class/course as I’ve ever been to.
