    Global Hotspots: A New Administration, Threats, Challenges, and Opportunities

    Admiral Inman returns to MBC to give us his highly-informed and insightful views on the challenges facing America and the world in the third decade of the new millennium. 

    About our speaker:

    Admiral Inman's long and storied career defies condensation; a graduate of Mineola Texas High School and the University of Texas, his quarter-century in Naval Intelligence culminated in simultaneously serving as director of the National Security Agency (NSA) and deputy director of the CIA. 

    After retiring from the Navy, Admiral Inman returned to Texas to serve as director of MCC in Austin and later as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

    For the past 30 years he has been active in the venture capital scene in Texas, and for the past 20 Inman has held the LBJ Centennial Chair in National Policy at the LBJ School at UT Austin, occasionally serving as Dean of the school.
