Morning Keynote Briefing

The former DEA Special Agents in Charge responsible for the capture and downfall of infamous Medellín cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar, Stephen Murphy and Javier Peña were at the center of the largest, most complex, multi-national, high-profile investigation of its time. Their incredible journey pursuing the world’s first “narco-terrorist” following his brutal reign as head of the Medellin cartel in the 1980’s and early 1990’s is depicted in the Golden Globe-nominated Netflix series Narcos.

In a riveting keynote briefing, Murphy and Peña recount their gripping pursuit of Pablo Escobar while delivering practical and oftentimes unorthodox advice on achieving successful outcomes in the face of extreme odds.These celebrated law enforcement officers take audiences deep into the history books as they reveal inside stories from a good-versus-evil battle that seems too wild to be true. Along the way, they share the lessons they learned on effective leadership, teamwork and split-second decision making amid extreme circumstances.

Visionary Keynote 

After nearly three decades as a consultant for PwC Management Consulting and IBM and another six years as CIO for SunTrust Banks, Anil Cheriyancame out of retirement earlier this year, drawn by the bold mission to help the federal government make the lives of our citizens better. Cheriyan drove large-scale business and technology transformation throughout his career, breaking down silos and standing up new digital, data, and operational frameworks. Now he is leading GSA’s Technology Transformation Services and finds himself at the center of the massive effort to modernize federal IT. In this keynote, Cheriyan will set the vision for his organization and draw insightful parallels between conditions for success in government and industry based on his decades of private-sector experiences.
