In this presentation, Secretary Esper addresses the challenges the U.S. faces globally, moving from region to region, and hot spot to hot spot, to share his insights about the challenges, trends, risks and opportunities that every leader and organization needs to be aware of. Esper’s remarks will cover topical issues, including:
• What does the ascendance of China mean for the U.S. and the West in the 21st Century
• How should America and its allies think about Russia over the next 10-15 years?
• How real are regional threats to U.S. interests from countries like Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela?
• How should the U.S. think about Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East?
• What about transnational threats from terrorist groups and criminal organizations?
• How do pandemics and climate change play into all of this?
• What are the real challenges America faces in space and cyberspace?
Esper also speaks to how the U.S. can develop and implement a whole-of-country approach––one that includes government at all levels, and the private sector in all of its shapes and sizes––to deal with these matters, including what the United States government can do to protect America today while readying itself for the future.
Lastly: What does this all mean for your organization and its future?
