DEFxWilliam & Mary - The "Real" Third Offset arrives in Williamsburg next spring!


DEFxWilliam & Mary is Williamsburg's inaugural DEF event to be held in the spring 2016!  It is a forum for emerging national security leaders and interested parties to  explore a couple different takes on the "Third Offset Strategy": how could this offset disrupt organizational norms, personnel management, and strategic policy going forward?   The event will be hosted in Miller Hall, home of the Mason School of Business, and newest building addition to the beautiful William and Mary campus in the heart of Williamsburg.
