Big announcements for 4th Annual HP Government Summit

With over 500 government customers, including top C-level professionals from agencies like the FBI, DHS, GSA and more, HP had to up-the-ante when it came to speakers for this event! We’re excited to announce that General Colin L. Powell will be addressing the crowd during his keynote address, and Dr. P.W. Singer, author of Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know, will be one of our featured speakers at the 4th Annual HP Government Summit.

 

General Colin Powell

General Colin L. Powell served as President Ronald Reagan’s national security advisor from 1987-1989, and as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for both President George H.W. Bush and President Bill Clinton. During his time as ColinPowell.jpgchairman, he oversaw 28 crises, including the Panama intervention of 1989 and Operation Desert Storm in the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

 

Among the many U.S. military awards and decorations Powell has received are the Defense Distinguished Service Medal (with 3 oak leaf clusters), the Army Distinguished Service Medal (with oak leaf cluster), Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit (with oak leaf cluster), Soldier's Medal, Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart. His civil awards include two Presidential Medals of Freedom, the President's Citizens Medal, the Congressional Gold Medal and the Secretary of Energy Distinguished Service Medal. In addition, he has also received awards from over two dozen countries that include a French Legion of Honor and an honorary knighthood bestowed by H.M. Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. We are honored to have this highly decorated serviceman speak at our event.
