Innovating to Win - Forging our Future Industrial Network
America’s industrial base, created and scaled in WWII and perfected in the Cold War, has served the country well in the eight decades since Pearl Harbor. But the world has changed – new business models, new global competitors, and new technologies are all challenging America’s ability to promote peace and security abroad and remain safe and prosperous at home. Successful organizations in the commercial and government sector have used network thinking as the organizational principle to scale quickly, remain agile in the face of unpredictable futures, and operationalize an opportunistic mindset. FTE guest expert James "Hondo" Geurts, BENS Distinguished Fellow, frmr. Assistant Secretary of the Navy and US Air Force Colonel ret., explores the critical role of entrepreneurism and start-ups, business models that scale faster, and some tangible steps to make it easier for the government to take advantage of them.

Watch & Listen to Past Expert Sessions:
….From beginning to end the FTE Show process was seamless, professionally facilitated, inspiring and fun. Still buzzing!”
"It was a pleasure working with John and the team at the FTE Show. The format allowed me to share my message impactfully and also engage in meaningful dialogue with the diverse participants. It was a wonderful experience that created opportunities for me to connect with other professionals who I otherwise might not meet."
The FTE Network gave me a fantastic platform to share some of my newest ideas with a group of extremely smart and engaged listeners. The whole experience from first contact to post show feedback was a delight and the team is extremely thoughtful, professional and structured. They know their audience and their product well, and it was a pleasure to work with them."
"I really enjoyed sharing my entrepreneurial journey and getting great questions and feedback from the FTE family. Thank you for taking the time to learn about me, my business and work together to find the best ways to present entrepreneurship to a great group!"
I like the real-time interaction and interplay of the sessions; more a collaborative TED talk than the typical presentation with Q&A after. I recommend the FTE network to anyone who wants to create real connections while solving real problems.

FromTheExperts has broadened my exposure, knowledge and network all in a neatly packaged and refreshing format. The broad business landscape and people that I am meeting is what keeps me engaged and learning. Thank you for providing this experience.”
FTE provided a fantastic opportunity to share my story and test my current challenges. The networking and open feedback from the group helped me refine my thesis and gave me a vector to pursue.
