Writing and publishing Finding Common Ground: Harnessing Disruption for the Good of the Service was a rewarding experience for me. I was honored to join the conversation about “Disruptive Thinking” and innovation, and my message was well-received (mostly) by all ranks. But the best was yet to come. Not long after publication, Ben Kohlmann reached out to me. He and a team of devoted young officers from across all four services were putting together a conference that would move beyond disruptive thinking into the realm of constructive action. When he invited me to join the board, I leapt at the chance.
I’m thrilled to announce today’s launch of the Defense Entrepreneurs Forum. Our weekend conference will be unlike anything the military has ever seen, because it is BY and FOR emerging military leaders who care about innovation.
