“We at the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) had the great pleasure of hosting Lori Ann LaRocco for the Washington launch of her new book ‘Opportunity Knocking: Lessons from Business Leaders.’ And what an opportunity it was!

Opportunity Knocking provides unprecedented insight into some of the world’s most successful CEO’s and offers a road map for how they achieve their goals—lessons our leaders in Washington should pay attention to. Practical, intellectually honest and chock full of enjoyable anecdotes, advice and lessons learned, Lori Ann has crafted a book that anyone who wants to achieve success should consider a must read.”
