BENS presents a coffee discussion on: Communications Opportunities and Challenges for the Intelligence Community

February 23, 2023 @ 8:30 am 9:45 am America/Washington, DC

Please join fellow DC Member Sam Meek, CEO & Co-Founder, Sandboxx for a coffee/breakfast discussion Thursday, February 23 with Assistant DNI, Strategic Communications, Timothy Barrett.  In this discussion, we will focus on strategic communication and information challenges for the intelligence community.

Timothy Barrett transitioned from uniformed to career, civilian intelligence service in 2009, moving from the Navy to the National Counterterrorism Center. He served in a wide variety of positions, including as a Presidential Daily Briefer, before enjoying a year as a National Security Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School. 

After Harvard, Timothy pivoted to public affairs, blending his education as a graduate of Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism with his professional experiences as an intelligence officer, first for NCTC, then ODNI, then CIA. After three wonderful years as CIA’s Press Secretary, serving under Directors Gina Haspel and Bill Burns, Timothy returned to ODNI to lead Intelligence Community communications.
