How would you handle leadership in this the most stressful Chief Information Officer (CIO) job in the World – being the CIO at The White House? Colonel Gelhardt will answer this question, and will talk about the leadership and mentorship he used and how you can use the same skills in the civilian world.  If he can do it so can you!

Colonel Gelhardt is a retired Army Officer and war veteran.  While in the Army, he was nominated and selected to work at the White House as the CIO equivalent for the Clinton White House from 1995 through 1999.  Colonel Gelhardt was responsible for all classified Information Technology and Communications used by the President, Vice President, White House Staff, and the Secret Service.  Colonel Gelhardt's mission was to provide safe and secure instantaneous communications and 5 minute hard copy, anytime, anywhere in the world to the Commander-in-Chief.   If the Information Technology and Communications at the White House failed millions of people would be affected and people could have died.  This was a zero tolerant environment where you could not fail.
