Thinking Strategically About America’s Future


with keynote speaker

Colonel F. William Smullen, III, USA (Ret.)

Former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell
Director of National Security Studies,
Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs

To be successful, any nation traveling on its road of life must have achievable objectives and sound strategic thinking.  It requires having a game plan for accomplishing goals through the use of available resources and delivery systems to influence things for the better.  Given that uncertainty is our contemporary adversary at the national level, we will need a sound grand strategy to advance America’s vital national interests in the years ahead.  This will not be made any easier given certain megatrends or conditions likely to occur by the year 2030.  Although the future yields uncertainty, it offers promise if our foreign policy decisions are wise and prudent.  This talk will outline the characteristics of an effective grand strategy and offer some visionary advice on leading America during these unprecedented times.
