Serving at a critical juncture in our nation’s history, Admiral Mike Mullen, America’s top military advisor to the President and the Secretary of Defense through two administrations, was a key influencer in shaping the security of our nation for decades to come. A man of unparalleled experience, vision and integrity, Mullen shares with audiences his belief that, “Our financial health is directly related to our national security,” and discusses how the key to the United States’ economic success in the next century is to create opportunity.
