Dinner with Dr. Stephen Flynn, Founding Director of the Global Resilience Institute

Charlotte, NC

This is an intimate gathering for finance, banking, insurance, energy, engineering and healthcare executives to enjoy cocktails and dinner with Dr. Stephen Flynn.  Steve is the Founding Director of the Global Resilience Institute (GRI) at Northeastern University, a best-selling author, and has served in the White House during the administrations of George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.  He is an expert on managing man-made and naturally-occurring disasters and is a leader in policy and practice of building infrastructure and system resilience.  GRI is a university-wide, interdisciplinary institute committed to advancing the security, sustainability, health and well-being of communities and societies around the world. The Institute serves as both a channel and a catalyst for experts in industry, academia, and government to collaborate on solving the world’s most pressing resilience challenges – helping communities resist and rapidly recover from catastrophic natural and man-made events; designing and building critical infrastructures which withstand disruptive events and allow the communities around them to continue to function; helping private and public leaders build resilient economies and social systems; advancing health and medical solutions that promote individual resilience.
