“I am honored to have been chosen as the keynote speaker for this special industry event,” notes Halres. “The number of women in the security industry is growing by leaps and bounds as represented by the Women in National Security Group. I look forward to a spirited discussion with my colleagues as I share my own personal story and respond to their specific obstacles, trials and tribulations so we can work together on furthering the female perspective within the global security industry.”
In commenting on Halres’ role as keynote speaker at the event, Laura Willoughby of The Women in National Security Group, remarked, “The WINS Group has regularly featured speakers involved in international aid and development. We have held panels with top female staffers involved in legislative decisions and who are regularly faced with the challenge of how to get women in more leadership roles, which are directly involved in national security issues and strategies. Halres’s background in the physical security sector is the perfect fit for our group. She has vast experience in viewing security from various angles, as well as regularly touting the importance of women in shoring up a community within the security industry to increase the nation’s overall safety and security.”
Willoughby added, “As a business owner and a woman, she will be speaking to a like-minded crowd. Her personal experience will help our group understand how they can handle challenges they face, and how we can work together to equalize representation within the security industry. Her advice will also help the audience understand how to leverage their unique traits and skills to improve national security measures, strategies and solutions.”
