San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
Today, Henley-Putnam University, in partnership with the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies, announced it will sponsor the 2010 SpyCruise® voyage, a national security educational and lecture seminar series. Henley-Putnam President Dr. Michael Corcoran will join retired experts from the CIA, FBI, DOD, RCMP, KGB, and renowned intelligence authors and historians as a featured speaker during the excursion.
SpyCruise® was launched as a fun, unique opportunity for a private group to attend exclusive lectures on intelligence, counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and national security issues. Each cruise has a different ship, a different destination, and a different agenda.
"SpyCruise® is a great way for anyone interested in national security and intelligence to gather and learn from real experts in the intelligence field and those who share the same interest in related history, world affairs, intelligence, military and books," said Dr. Corcoran. "With so many experts aboard the ship, it is also a tremendous networking opportunity for those seeking careers in the field."
Lectures and workshops are held on at-sea days during the cruise. The remainder of the time, participants can enjoy a vacation complete with excursions, destinations, and all the amenities and activities offered by the ship.
This year's SpyCruise® topic is "Current & Future Threats: Policies, Problems, and Prescriptions." Additional keynote speakers include: Porter Goss, former Director of the CIA; General Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA and NSA; Peter Brookes, Heritage Foundation Fellow, former CIA Operations Officer; Major General Paul Vallely, US Army, retired; Michael Braun, retired DEA Operations Chief; Managing Partner, Spectre Group International; and Clare Lopez, retired CIA Operations Officer.
The 2010 voyage sets sail November 13-20, with a cruise to the Caribbean aboard the Holland American MS Eurodam. Destinations include Ft. Lauderdale, Turks & Caicos, San Juan, St. Thomas, and the Bahamas. Those interested in participating can make reservations by calling Diamond Fun Travel at 1.888.670.0008.
