USA: NWDC Announces Speaker Series

NWDC Announces Speaker Series

Navy Warfare Development Command (NWDC) is scheduled to launch the “NWDC Speaker Series,” May 24, as part of its larger “Innovation Series” designed to stimulate provocative discussion and action to drive a culture of innovation in the Navy.

In addition to attending in person, some events will be broadcast live over Defense Connect Online (DCO), allowing for wider participation and real-time “chat” discussion.

The first event will feature retired Adm. Joseph Prueher on May 24, from 1 to 2 p.m. EST. Prueher was the U.S. Ambassador to China under Presidents Clinton and Bush and will speak on the current and future strategic implications of the U.S. China policy. Prior to joining the State Department in 1999, Prueher was Commander, U.S. Pacific Command.

“The geopolitical environment in Asia is one of the most pressing challenges our military is facing,” said Rear Adm. Terry B. Kraft, commander, Navy Warfare Development Command. “These are the type of topics our Speaker Series will highlight and discuss here at NWDC. We are looking for a great turnout for Adm. Prueher.”
