ABOUT OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER
We’re very glad to announce Valerie Plame Wilson as this year’s Keynote speaker. A former career covert CIA operations officer, Ms. Plame Wilson worked to protect America’s national security and prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, in particular nuclear weapons. She is the author of the New York Times best-selling memoir Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House, which was released as a major motion picture of the same name. She also narrates and appears in the critically acclaimed 2010 documentary on the dangers of nuclear proliferation, Countdown to Zero. She is a member of the Global Zero Leadership board. Ms. Plame Wilson has written a new spy thriller series, to be published later this year by Penguin books.
