Captain William Toti USN Retired

Website: https://williamtoti.com

Location: Florida, United States

Occupation: Consultant, Author, Military Expert

“Here’s a real statistic for you: 200,000 people leave the military every year, and of those, greater than 50 percent quit their first job or are fired from their first job within two years of leaving the military,” Toti said. “Most transitioning veterans struggle, and it increases their stress level. And for those with PTSD, failure to transition just adds to that.”

On the other side of the equation are companies that don’t understand the veteran mindset and don’t know how to help their veterans succeed, and this disconnect costs companies millions of dollars in lost recruiting costs and compensation.

In an effort to “reboot things for transitioning veterans,” Toti started writing down lessons he had learned in his post-military career. The result is his book, From CO to CEO: A Practical Guide for Transitioning from Military to Industry Leadership.

“The book is intended to correct the defects the military injects into its transitioning veterans before they leave service; it’s intended to help companies head off problems in assimilating new veteran employees; and it’s intended to serve as a guide for transitioning veterans to help them understand the business environment and learn new skills necessary for them to succeed,” Toti added.

William Toti served for more than 26 years on active duty, culminating as commodore of Submarine Squadron 3, then 15 years as a corporate executive and eventually a CEO. He has been featured in several documentaries, including The Lost Ships of World War II (Fox), USS Indianapolis: The Final Chapter (PBS), USS Indianapolis: Live from the Deep (PBS), USS Indianapolis: The Legacy, 9/11: One Day in America (National Geographic), 9/11: The Pentagon (The History Channel) and 9/11: Inside the Pentagon (PBS).  He is co-host of the popular YouTube podcast, "An Unauthorized History of the Pacific War"

Guest Occupation: Space Philosopher, President of the Human Space Program, Author
Guest Biography:

Frank White is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard College, a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and a Rhodes Scholar. He earned an M.Phil. in Politics from Oxford University.

He is president of the Human Space Program, a nonprofit organization with the mission of ensuring a sustainable, ethical, and inclusive evolution of humanity into the solar ecosystem. Frank also acts as curator of materials for the SpaceTech and AI practices at Intro-act, a financial technology company.

His best-known work as an author, The Overview Effect: Space Exploration and Human Evolution, is considered by many to be a seminal contribution to the field of space exploration. A film called “Overview,” based largely on his work, has had more than 8 million plays on Vimeo.

Since the first edition of his book on the subject was published in 1987, “the Overview Effect” has become a standard term describing the spaceflight experience. The fourth edition of The Overview Effect was published in 2021 by Multiverse Publishing.

Frank’s book on the Apollo program, The New Camelot: Quest for the Overview Effect, offers a radical new interpretation of John F. Kennedy’s approach to the lunar missions that culminated with the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969.


White considers himself to be a “space philosopher,” and has long advocated developing a new philosophy of space exploration. His book on this topic, The Cosma Hypothesis: Implications of the Overview Effect, was published in 2019. In it, he asks the fundamental question, “Why has the evolutionary process brought humanity to the brink of becoming a spacefaring species?”

In Cosma, he shares the idea of “the Human Space Program” as a “central project” that will engage all of us in the process of becoming “Citizens of the Universe.” This concept has now become the nonprofit Human Space Program, cited above.

Frank is a frequent speaker at conferences that focus on space exploration, space development, and Large-Scale Space Migration.

White has also written about Artificial Intelligence, and his book on the subject, The (Neo) Singularity is Here! anticipated many of the developments in AI that are creating a worldwide paradigm shift today.

White has taught in Harvard’s Division of Continuing Education since 1995, and is a professor and dean at Kepler Space University.

Guest Biography:

As a young German-speaking refugee who fled with her parents from Nazi Germany in 1940 at the onset of World War II, Barbara Sommer Feigin spent her childhood and teenage years in tiny Chehalis, Washington, yearning to become an “authentic” American girl.

Feigin’s parents impressed upon her the power of education to open doors to opportunity. With the help of scholarships and work grants, she attended Whitman College, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. She then completed a graduate program in business run jointly by Harvard Business School and Radcliffe Graduate School at a time when women were not admitted to the Harvard Business School.

Encouraged by her parents’ admonition to “dream big, work hard, and never quit,” Feigin became a pioneering executive who found success in a completely male-dominated business—advertising—when career-building opportunities for women were virtually nonexistent. In her illustrious thirty-year career at Grey Advertising (now Grey Global Group), she solidified her reputation as a visionary thinker. In all her years as a senior advertising executive and a corporate director, she was more often than not the only woman in the room. In 2017, Feigin was named one of the century’s Legendary Pioneers by Grey.

Feigin and her husband, Jim, built a strong, loving family of three sons, including identical twins. Their lives were shattered when Jim had two very serious strokes when he was quite young. For the next twenty-five years, she was Jim’s caregiver-in-chief. The family’s strong bonds and great love for Jim helped them navigate this traumatic time.

Feigin currently lives in New York City.

Guest Biography:

Growing up, Claude Hall rarely called attention to herself. But years later, when life started falling apart (again), she realized she needed to find her voice…

Falling apart is what led her to her first voice lesson. Those lessons led her to her debut performance in Saint Barths. On that night, she found her center as the facets of her personality fell into place.

Claude has since held sold-out performances in some of Los Angeles’ most iconic venues… Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Grill Jazz, Feinstein’s at Vitello’s, and the Baked Potato. In New York, she’s headlined at the Metropolitan Room. And in Saint Barths, she was the featured artist of the 2019 Jazz Festival.

Evoking the cabaret divas of days gone by, and offering a jazz phrasing sprinkled with the soul of the popular music that has accompanied her journey, Claude’s musical styling has paved the way to her winning the 2016 Palm Springs Sings competition as well as being voted one of the top 100 unsigned artists by Music Connection Magazine in 2018.

In her EP, August Afternoon, she debuts as a songwriter with the title track. Its classic instrumentation reveals her capacity to embody the soul of jazz as well as weave lyrics which tell vivid and emotional stories. And with her single Punch Drunk, Claude spreads her wings with a musical composition which is both bouncy and smooth offering a tapestry upon which lays her rich and sultry vocals.

She also hosted a series of artist interviews on her YouTube Channel, The In-Side Out… a mix of music and conversation which reveal the person behind the persona of each of her guests.

Originally from NY, Claude Hall has lived in Paris and Saint Barths before moving to LA where
she currently resides.
