President George W. Bush will have a thoughtful conversation on stage with ASIS International’s President of the Global Board of Directors, Tim McCreight, to offer his perspective on today’s most pressing challenges and global security, drawing from his eight years in the White House, his response to the 9/11 attacks and working with world leaders.

[Please note: This closed session is exclusive for GSX attendees, with no personal photography, notetaking, recording, filming, broadcasting, livestreaming or press access.]

On Wednesday 13 September, GSX 2023 celebrates the first responder community via Military and Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, honouring the individuals who make our communities and world a safer place. As a thank you for your service, all active duty and retired law enforcement, military and first responders receive a FREE One-Day Pass to GSX on Wednesday.

Wednesday’s keynote presenter is Tracy Walder, former CIA Officer and FBI Special Agent. She served as a covert operative for the CIA, helped uncover a Chinese spy ring with the FBI and traveled to warzones and black sites across the globe.

Today, as an author and educator, she’s bringing her unique perspective to GSX.

Hear her views on the current geopolitical landscape, emerging threats in China and the Middle East and other timely hot-button topics.

Walder will be sharing her incredible true story of working in special operations during the era of 9/11, including frequent meetings with President Bush, assuming aliases and hunting terrorists worldwide.
