The Monterey Bay Defense Alliance (MBDA) is pleased to announce Admiral Mike Mullen, USN (Ret.), as the featured speaker at its 22 Feb 2019 breakfast.

Considered perhaps one of the most influential Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in history, Admiral Mullen takes a fresh approach to the most important issues of the 21st century—including America’s global positioning and how business trends and the economic health of the U.S. directly impact our national security.

Admiral Mullen was widely recognized as an “honest broker” in his key leadership roles as the top military advisor to two presidents—Barack Obama and George W. Bush— as well as to the Secretary of Defense and the National Security Council.  He continues to maintain strong relationships with leaders around the globe.  Admiral Mullen led the military during a critical period of transition, overseeing the end of the combat mission in Iraq and the development of a new military strategy for Afghanistan. He advocated for the rapid development and fielding of innovative technologies, championed emerging and enduring international partnerships, and advanced new methods for combating terrorism—all of which directly culminated in the elimination of Osama bin Laden.

Please join us to hear Admiral Mike Mullen give his perspective on National Security Challenges in the 21st Century.
