Mitch Daniels (Exclusively WSB)

With over 40 years of successful economic stewardship in the private and public sectors, Mitch Daniels—the highly regarded two-term governor of Indiana and former director of the Office of Management and Budget—examines the fiscal and economic reforms needed to revitalize the ailing financial system, refuel optimism, address debt and deficit reduction and successfully navigate the tides of a rapidly evolving world. Daniels provides audiences with a candid, multidimensional, solution-oriented perspective stressing the importance of innovation and fostering growth while offering thought-provoking dialogue about the implications of chronic deficit and even more intrusive and expansive government for democratic institutions.

Dentzer speaks on a wide variety of topics in health care arena including the impact and future of the Affordable Care Act, rising health care costs; aging; breakthroughs in treatment and research; health insurance issues; health policy issues such as Medicare reform, the uninsured, and prescription drug coverage.

Dentzer has followed closely the on-going debate over reforming Social Security over the years. She speaks knowledgeably on the economics and politics of Social Security, and places these in the broader context of the overall effects on the U.S. and the world of the rapid aging of the population.

Dentzer has followed federal fiscal policy for over two decades, from the era of federal budget deficits to surpluses and back again to the current budget deficits. She addresses the debate over restraining the growth of spending, cutting or raising taxes and balancing the nation’s commitments to health care, retirement and social programs.

From consumer spending to international trade to the performance of the financial markets, Dentzer takes a broad look at the economy’s performance and examines the underlying factors likely to shape the economy's perforrmance in future years. Dentzer specializes in making these presentations sophisticated and yet “user-friendly” and readily understandable for non-specialist audiences.

Dentzer is chair of the Dartmouth Board of Trustees and has a longstanding interest in higher education. She speaks on a range of topics in this field, including the importance of liberal arts education; the costs and value of higher education in general; critical issues in university and academic governance. She has also delivered several commencement addresses. Rather than giving off-the-shelf address, she tailors her speeches for each institution and to the graduating students, giving the occasion a personal touch.

Lou Dobbs (Exclusively WSB)

One of America's most experienced and respected financial and political thinkers who has received almost every journalistic award, Lou Dobbs shares his insight on politics and the economy with a keen political perspective. From Main Street to Wall Street to world markets, Dobbs provides probing analysis of our political economy and offers a unique perspective on how our nation's leaders and government and business policies will likely shape America's future.

Lou Dobbs (Exclusively WSB)

In this stirring presentation, Lou Dobbs calls audiences to action in reclaiming their voice in our national dialogue. America has always been a land filled with a strong independent spirit and will, a country of hope, can-do attitude and entrepreneurial pride. Today, many Americans now look at their leaders in both government and business with cynicism and lack of trust. Rampant corporate corruption and partisan political infighting have done little to help. Leaders have shown a disregard for the will and respect of the middle class. The result is an angry gulf of mistrust that now exists between the government and the governed, between the will of our leaders and the hopes of those who put them in office. Dobbs discusses the need to break away from partisan politics driven by the demands of special interests and instead challenges his audience to do what's best for America. He displays his passionate commitment to the ideals of independence and equality moving this country back to the cherished principles on which it was founded.
