Geopolitics and Security

In a world where dictators are falling and rising, governments posture for a greater impact on the global stage, and information is the critical currency, who will emerge and where will opportunities exist? The face of security changed forever on 11 September 2001, and General Kelly, a 4-Star General, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, and White House Chief of Staff, has continued to protect the United States both abroad and at home. His unique ability to provide first-hand insight into the evolving geopolitical landscape around the world is valuable when contextualizing the United States’ security priorities from a historical, current, and future prospective. Gen. Kelly will share his insights on the trends, risks, and potential rewards amid the ‘hot spots’ around the globe, and the role the U.S. plays (and should play), in our nation and world’s security.

Secretary Kelly enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1970 and went on to serve in a number of command, staff, and school assignments. During his command of SOUTHCOM, he worked closely with professionals in U.S. law enforcement, particularly the FBI and DEA, and the Department of Homeland Security, dealing with the flow of drugs, people, and other threats against the U.S. homeland. He went on to become the Secretary of Homeland Security before serving his country again as White House Chief of Staff until January 2019.
