Defense Strategies Institute (DSI)


Defense Strategies Institute (DSI) was created to form a non-partisan, relevant, sustainable, and ethical organization operating primarily within the Department of Defense and Federal Government sectors.


Animated by the values and guiding principles of DSI, our vision is to continually be the United States’ most dynamic and ethical Institute to the defense and federal government communities; recognized by government, military organizations, and private industry as both a thought leader and a reliable, trustworthy, value oriented operating partner. We strive to deliver mission relevant educational summits, seminars, and symposiums to the respective departments, agencies, and private industry leaders in order to help them achieve effective and efficient mission success.


The summit forum is a proven form of advancing communication, enhancing discussion and debate, and fostering new partnerships amongst the various actors involved in any given mission.  As the neutral voice that is not guided by the particular agenda of any given agent, we are able to reach across all organizations in a fair and balanced manner and bring together the relevant representatives while forming lasting and trusting relationships with them.


When we leverage our team’s combined professional expertise in political/military affairs and successful summit production to best effect, we have a successful breed of services that leverages its industry knowledge to formulate relevant and timely content for each meeting offered
