Robert O’Neill

James Lamar, director of the Lowcountry Speaker Series, has announced that the postponed event featuring Robert O’Neill has been postponed again, moving to Nov. 4.

“Optimistically, I thought March 18 would provide enough time to achieve some semblance of normalcy,,” Lamar wrote in a newsletter to ticket holders, “but given the ongoing threat of COVID-19 and the uncertainty around vaccine availability and scheduling, once again, I have decided to postpone the Robert O’Neill lecture.”

Lamar stressed this is a date change only. The location remains at Harbour Town Clubhouse Champions Ballroom, and assigned seats will not change. In the coming days, existing subscribers and lecture participants will receive an email from the Eventbrite ticketing platform, with new tickets, for the Nov. 4 event.

Those who opted to donate their in-person ticket and participate virtually will still be given access to the live stream.

O’Neill is one of the most highly-decorated combat veterans of our time, and is the author of the New York Times best-selling memoir “The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama bin Laden,” as well as “My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior.” A former SEAL Team Six leader with the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, he deployed more than a dozen times and held combat leadership roles in more than 400 combat missions in four different theaters of war.

For the new date, there will be an exclusive dinner with O’Neill added at 6 p.m. Tickets will be limited.
