An Evening with Guy Snodgrass

Guy "Bus" Snodgrass recently served as director of communications and chief speechwriter to Secretary of Defense James Mattis. A former naval aviator and F/A-18 pilot, he served as a commanding officer of a fighter squadron based in Japan, a TOPGUN instructor, and a combat pilot over the skies of Iraq as part of his twenty-year navy career. Today he is the founder and CEO of Defense Analytics, a strategic consulting and advisory firm.

Commander Snodgrass recently published the critically acclaimed book Holding the Line about his time serving Secretary of Defense Mattis. He will discuss the book and leadership lessons he gleaned from his time in the Mattis Administration. He will take questions from the audience and be available to sign books after the discussion.
