What to Expect
Mr. Fairchild provides 10-20 minute true inspirational and/or funny monologues on topics such as how he began his journey as an intelligence officer by printing a letter to the CIA when he was 14 years old, or how North Koreans aren't much fun at parties, or how his training as a Army paratrooper had its ups and downs.
On the serious side, Mr. Fairchild provides half-hour to hour long substantive lectures on the current state of CIA, the New Cold War, and the dangers posed to the homeland by al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
Brian Fairchild was a career officer in CIA’s Clandestine Service. He is a nationally recognized subject matter expert on intelligence, and terrorism (See videos), and he testified before Congress on a blue ribbon panel on terrorism. He has lived and served in Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, the Arabian Peninsula, and Afghanistan.
After the attacks of September 11, 2001, Mr. Fairchild trained over 10,000 FBI, CIA, military, state and local police counter-terrorism officers, and in July 2011, he deployed to Afghanistan for a year and a half as a menor to Afghan Police intelligence officers.
Mr. Fairchild writes periodic intelligence analyses and speakes on topics of strategic importance, but also tells true stories about his experiences in and out of CIA, many of which are humorous and reveal the lite side of the spy business, while revealing life lessons that everyone can benefit from.
1. Dreams can come true: Starting the journey to CIA - a 14 year old boy learns the value of taking the shot, and paying it forward.
2. The world isn't a level playing field: North Koreans aren't much fun at parties - a funny, but serious experience with three North Korean spies.
3. Learning several hard life lessons at Army paratrooper school. Or, how I met the Navy SEALs.
4. Bureacracy and bureaucrats are everywhere: Cool spy tradecraft - well, sort of, kind of...not! It's not all smooth like James Bond. Screwing-up is universal.
