Cape Chapter - 13 July 2015

Skype Speaker

Something a little bit different this month. Richard Mulvey SASHoF will be interviewing Greg Gregory CSP live from Washington. Greg Gregory is the President of the Washington DC Chapter of the NSA and his extensive experience as an international speaker will be something to really enjoy.

The main speaker after the break is Ryan Stramrood

“I am Ryan Stramrood: Quintessential Average Joe, salesman, small business owner and family man. However my hobby is Ultra Extreme OpenWater and Ice swimming, and for deeply personal reasons, I have undertaken some of the world’s most extreme challenges. Pushing my limits and human boundaries in our planet’s most inhospitable places, each challenge offers new insight into unlocking the real power of the human mind – and its default propensity to hold us back.
