April 30, 2007
The 2007 Awards Dinner of the Atlantic Council of the United States was held on April 30, 2007 at the Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC.

This year the Award for Distinguished International Leadership was presented to Alan Greenspan.  The Council also presented two new awards to recognize the military and business pillars so vital to our work.  General James L. Jones, the outgoing Supreme Allied Commander, was recognized with an Award for Distinguished Military Leadership, and Blackstone co-founder and chief executive Stephen A. Schwarzman received the Distinguished Business Leadership Award.  Colin Powell, the recipient of the Council's 2005 award introduced the honorees.

The evening also featured a panel moderated by Brent Scowcroft and improvisations by piano virtuosa Gabriela Montero "who plays with fingers of steel and a heart of gold" as recently described in a 60 Minutes segment "The Gift."
