Join us for the 5th Annual Barrington Town-Warming – a re-creation of the robust discussions held in Barrington during the Depression era. This year’s in-person event at Barrington's White House will feature keynote speaker Robert Gates, the former U.S. Secretary of Defense and CIA Director, who will come to us via live-stream with Motorola Solutions Chairman & CEO Greg Brown.

After lunch, we welcome Ron Keaton as Sir Winston Churchill, who will be followed by our keynote speaker.
