National Programs


In FY 2019, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day national 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

This one-day seminar will feature a faculty of high-level, internationally-recognized experts who will discuss challenges the U.S. faces in specific parts of the world, including Europe, the Middle East, China, Africa, and Latin America.

I benefited from the left-leaning, democratic perspectives that juxtaposed the conservative perspectives. Keep it balanced—it was awesome!

M.P., Air Force • Enterprise Perspective Seminar October 2016

Fantastic program; great approach to the group in providing interesting/informative, though-provoking information. The day has been well worth my time.

P.Z., Joint Enabling Capabilities Command • Professional Development Course February 2017

The speakers were excellent & the seminar was well-organized. I would definitely attend a future Alan Freed event.

S.F., Department of Homeland Security • Global Security Seminar February 2017

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

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.
