A leader unflinchingly places the needs of others above his or her own. This drive to serve our clients stems from recognizing that all human beings are interdependent. Having walked in the shoes of everyone from Pakistani fish mongers to Mongolian nomads, Bash sees firsthand how every role is just as valuable as the next and no one is more important than another—be it the secretary, the janitor or the CEO.

Being a global leader doesn’t mean changing our jobs, joining the Peace Corps, or even traveling abroad! Rather, it means recognizing the service we already provide to our clients and the difference we already make in people’s lives. Bash helps us realize our true potential by eliminating self-doubt through exercises that reinforce trust in ourselves. Through stories of leaders who have overcome unthinkable obstacles around the globe, Bash reaffirms that we can each increase our productivity by shifting our focus from self to other.

The “stoop” is a universal metaphor for building connections with people across intercultural, intergenerational and international boundaries. It is a mentality defined by listening, non-judgment and the courage to step outside our comfort zones. Bash’s childhood Brooklyn stoop was a set of stairs with friends that shared a total of thirteen nationalities. Sometimes a stoop is a teashop in Saudi Arabia, a pile of rocks in Haiti, or the community workplace in a Minnesota accounting firm. In this flagship talk, Bash defines the practical steps by which we can create stoops in both our communities and in the workplace.

Join Bash on a trek across continents, wrestling with nomads in the hills of Mongolia, jumping with Maasai warriors on the plains of Africa, and understanding the subtle cultural nuances that define human relationship. The Rules of the Stoop are the actual method by which to diffuse tensions and strengthen the most challenging relationships in our personal and professional lives. Through thought provoking exercises, unique audience participation and uplifting videos we will be empowered to create more authentic relationships here and now.

A global citizen uses his or her everyday life as a vehicle to serve others. Global Citizenship (GC) does not mean giving up our possessions and traveling the world to volunteer—it means finding moments each day, both inside and outside the office, as a means to contribute. Once we identify our unique gifts and abilities we can transform them into a means to serve. The good news is we can do this in essentially any career on Earth!

Bash traveled to over 30 countries before realizing that being a global citizen has nothing to do with traveling the world. Global Citizenship is a mentality we carry with us in our hearts that strengthens our relationships, builds trust in ourselves, and breathes life into our productive winds. It is categorized by authenticity, openness and a genuine concern for others. Having trained with Mongolian herdsmen, walked for clean water in Haiti and harvested buffalo in Pine Ridge, Bash defines the new global citizenship mentality—one that we can apply to our lives today.

Noise in the modern world is constant and serves to distract us not only from our greater goals, but also from our internal decision make—our heart. Before we can identify our unique talents and offer them to the world, we first must learn to ignore the noise. By putting down our smart phones and turning our attention inside we often gain insights into some of our most pressing challenges. Join Bash, National Geographic explorer and television host, on an introspective journey to the often intimidating, yet rewarding path of life after college.

At 20 years old Bash was broke, living at home and far removed from the path of his dreams. By 23 he became one of the youngest people to speak in the UN General Assembly Hall and produced an international television show for PBS. His journey to the unexpected has been plagued by failure and tragedy. By ignoring the noise and trusting himself in his greatest moments of doubt Bash was able to discover his potential and create a niche career path a social entrepreneur. Ultimately we’ll learn that fulfillment has less to do with our outer career path and more to do with our inner path—our intention. Through captivating stories and thought provoking exercises students will leave with confidence they need to embrace life after college—in any career they embark on.

Terry Bradshaw (Exclusively WSB)

At a time when business is experiencing very serious challenges, perhaps it’s time to go back to basics and take a closer look at what makes people successful despite disappointment, adversity and relentless competition. Legendary Hall of Fame Quarterback Terry Bradshaw, a success both on and off the field, shares with audiences his strategies for maintaining success through persistent self-improvement. All of us, he says, want to better ourselves, to learn about ourselves and to apply that learning towards a common goal. Bradshaw invites audiences to think in new ways about sacrifice, pain, competition and adversity, while giving specific examples of how to focus the power of dreaming, thinking and strategizing towards goals and success.

The famous (and the infamous) don’t stand a chance of going unscathed when Frank Caliendo takes to the stage. From his impressions of former presidents and political leaders to his uncanny imitations of actors, broadcasters and today’s biggest stars, Caliendo is America’s best known and most popular impersonator. Whether playing Dr. Phil, Donald Trump, John Madden or Bill Clinton, Caliendo nails his impressions every time and has audiences questioning who he can’t impersonate.

Playing U.S. President Mackenzie Allen in the critically acclaimed ABC series Commander in Chief was more than a television role for Geena Davis, one of the world’s best-known actors. An Academy Award-winner, film producer, accomplished athlete and role model, she truly believes that, with determination and focus, women can achieve virtually anything they set out to accomplish. She empowers audiences with her moving personal stories of how she broke into acting and her success at the highest levels in the traditionally male-dominated fields of Olympic archery and film production.

Using her skills as an archer—she ranked 13th in the U.S. in 2001—as a metaphor for achievement in life, Geena Davis shares her risk-taking, entrepreneurial spirit that has led her to the pinnacles of success as an actor and producer as well as a gifted athlete. She inspires audiences with her message of overcoming obstacles to success in athletes, in the arts and in life itself.

A model and sales clerk before getting her first film role in Tootsie in 1982, Davis shares her engaging personal story, taking audiences through her early years including highlights of her Oscar win for The Accidental Tourist, her groundbreaking role in Thelma and Louise, to her success in reaching the Olympic trials in archery for in the 2000 Olympics and her concurrent roles as actor, athlete, producer, role model and women’s advocate. Serving up personal anecdotes from her fascinating life and career, Davis will enlighten and inform audiences in a Q & A session following her remarks.

Geena Davis motivates audiences with her passionate message of why gender equity is empowering for both men and women, and why it is essential for the future of the U.S. to foster strength of character and resolve in children of both genders. Her foundation, See Jane, calls for greater gender equity in media aimed at children, backed up by groundbreaking research funded by See Jane. She encourages audiences to stand up for Title IX legislation that has helped women athletes achieve parity with men, urging them to dream big, set goals and be the best they can be.
