About the Speaker
Admiral Michael Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, served four years as the top military advisor to U.S. Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Mullen is considered one of the most influential chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in history, and Fast Company called him “not just a new model for military officers —and a new kind of business titan —but also a case study in 21st Century leadership.”
 
Mullen oversaw the end of the combat mission in Iraq and the development of a new military strategy for Afghanistan, while promoting international partnerships, new technologies and new counter-terrorism tactics culminating in the killing of Osama bin Laden.
 
A 1968 graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, Mullen sought challenging positions including command at every level to develop his leadership skills during his naval career. He rose to be chief of naval operations prior to assuming duties as chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff.
 
Since retiring from the Navy, Mullen has joined the boards of General Motors, Sprint, and the Bloomberg Family Foundation. He teaches at the Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs at Princeton University. He is also known for his efforts on behalf of service members, veterans and their families. He is renowned for his role in dismantling “don’t ask, don’t tell” and allowing gay service members to serve openly.
 
Today, he shares his deep experience in leading change in complex organizations, his assessment of geopolitical relationships, diversity implementation, crisis management, economic policy, risk management, and the growing and existential threat of cyber.
