An Admiral’s Perspective on Leadership and Service


Leadership is synonymous with the military; however, this valuable skill touches all aspects of life, including the private sector. From ethics to duty, honor and integrity, Adm. James R. Hogg, retired U.S. Navy four-star admiral, will share his perspectives on leadership and its applied value, not only to the military, but also to civilians and industry. He will also offer the insight he gained on interpersonal relationships, career and family as a result of his extensive naval training and experiences worldwide. This discussion will include firsthand accounts of Jim’s 57-year career, including his knowledge of the truth behind the Gulf of Tonkin and U.S. involvement in Vietnam, as well as his command of the entire 7th Fleet (1983-1985) during tenuous years of the Cold War with Russia.

Following Jim’s seminar will be a special reception with tea, coffee and pastries. Sportscoat suggested.
