WID GTB Presents “Get Informed” Luncheon
Featuring: Mr. William O’Hara, Sr. Intelligence Planner at USSOCOM
Topic – China: From Cooperation to Competition
Wednesday June 6th, from 11:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Tampa Yacht & Country Club – 5320 Interbay Blvd., Tampa, FL 33611
Join us as we welcome William O’Hara as our June luncheon speaker. Mr. O’Hara will be addressing the current subjects surrounding China. There has been a belief since Nixon’s opening up of China in 1972 that China would adapt Western rules and norms. As the Chinese economic engine has roared for 35+ years now, those benefits are being translated into hard military, economic, and geo-political power that are increasingly at odds with U.S led pre-eminence. As the U.S. transitions from cooperation to competition with China, the results of this dynamic will likely dominate the remainder for the first half of the 21st Century.
Mr. O’Hara serves as the senior intelligence planner at U.S. Special Operations Command where he focuses on Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction. He previously served as a lead intelligence analyst at USSOCOM specializing in East Asia. Prior to joining USSOCOM, Mr. O’Hara worked at the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, where he became joint duty qualified. He began his career in the IC with the Office of Naval Intelligence where he deployed as a civilian intelligence embed to East Asia. Mr. O’Hara was part of two teams that earned Joint Meritorious Unit Citation Awards.
