Jeremy Bash provides audiences with an insider’s look at the most significant global security challenges of the day and how Washington is reacting to the dizzying pace of events. Drawing on his time at the Central Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon, and on Capitol Hill, Bash discusses how leaders make decisions behind closed doors in the face of crises – and how those management lessons affect leaders today. In his presentations, Bash discusses the “5 Management Lessons from the Osama Bin Laden Operation” (inspired by a 2015 Harvard Business Review article co-authored with former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta) which Bash helped oversee while at the CIA. For leaders today, it is paramount to anticipate crises and “see around corners” so that organizations can prepare for the largest macro trends.

In addition to discussing global security challenges, Bash shares stories of heroism and inspiration from the brave men and women of the American intelligence community and military who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom and security of their country.
