Join us at the May 24 lunch to learn from Rear Admiral Frank Thorp, chief of media at U.S. Central Command during the 2003 Iraq war – the largest military-media operation in our nation’s history. The retired navy officer later held senior leadership positions in the Pentagon – helping with strategic communications for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld – before transitioning from the military to a corporation and now to a nonprofit, the U.S. Navy Memorial, where he is president and CEO. Frank will share sea stories to show how in the military, corporations and nonprofits, there needs to be message alignment that drives operations. Sponsored by Monarch.
