Bradley, Gates, Bergen

“We have a teaching at Atlanta Media: We call it the Elizabeth Taylor School of Public Speaking. It runs like this – as Elizabeth Taylor said to each of her six successive husbands, I won’t be keeping you long,” said David Bradley, Chairman of Atlanta Media who received the International Award for Public Service at the Friends of the American University of Afghanistan 2018 Annual Award Dinner “Education will Prevail” also Honoring Dr. Robert M. Gates, former US Secretary of Defense and Dr. Phyllis R. Magrab, Vice Chair of the U.S.-Afghan Women’s Council at their Annual Benefit Dinner hosted by AUAF at The Four Seasons in Georgetown, DC. “David Bradley earlier quoted Elizabeth Taylor,” said former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, also an award recipient, as he was about to embark on a Q and A with Peter Bergen after the awards. “At this point in the evening, I will quote her last husband. He said he knew what he was supposed to do, the challenge was just figuring out how to make it interesting.”
