Speakers on Global Problems—and Solutions

James Clapper Evelyn Farkas Michael Hayden
In a time of tense geopolitical relations and a divisive political climate, hearing from an expert who cuts through hype, breaks down the facts, and hits on the opportunities presented by big challenges, rather than just the threats, can leave audiences inspired and energized. For a speaker like this, we recommend...

Gen. John Allen, former Head of NATO Forces in Afghanistan
Personally appointed by President Obama as the first American to the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL, he is a fresh and thoughtful thinker on what’s happening in the world. What Allen does so well is translate how security challenges will likely play out while captivating audiences with powerful stories from his time leading the military.

Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA and former Director of the NSA
A retired four-star General, Hayden is one of our most popular geopolitical speakers. Known for his ability to break down complex dangers and risks, he provides the ultimate insider’s glimpse into the forces shaping our world—and the ways we can benefit from them.

Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia

Jim Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence
Clapper offers a truly Presidential-level intelligence briefing to audiences, having served as the nation’s highest-ranking intelligence officer for seven years. He regularly appears on CNN to talk about the hot-button issues of the day, and uses wit and funny stories to break up his very serious insights.

Ken Pollack, former CIA Iraq-Iran Analyst and Resident Scholar at American Enterprise Institute
The best-selling author of nine books on the Middle East, Ken came by our office recently to deliver what can only be described as a master class on the major issues plaguing the region. Our entire office was fascinated as he dissected the areas where he believes America should, and should not, be involved.

Lisa Monaco, former US Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Advisor
Now out of office, Monaco is a CNN National Security Analyst. Having coordinated the government response to a wide variety of challenges including the Boston Bombings and the OPM cyber-attack, she provides a briefing on major domestic challenges as well as bright spots.

Michael Morell, former Deputy and Acting Director of the CIA
Morell is an expert at navigating high-intensity situations—he was by President Bush’s side on 9/11 and by President Obama’s side on the day we captured Osama bin Laden. In speeches, he gives audiences an honest overview of the real threats keeping intelligence officials up at night, and their solutions.
