Jeff Immelt (Exclusively WSB)

As the former President and CEO of GE Healthcare, Jeff Immelt has long believed that healthcare must be married to technology. He understands the major dynamics of today’s marketplace: the desire to better link consumers and providers, the rising costs as people live longer, and the increasing need for payment reform. He articulates how these are further complicated by political instability and regular disruption. Immelt offers audiences unparalleled insight into the future of the industry—and explains how decisions made in Washington will impact business writ large.  

Can our country really thrive and remain the envy of the world, when our public continues to be so fed up with both political parties? Why is confidence in our elected leaders at a record low? How can we the people get the leadership we truly deserve? Is it time for us to re-think our two-party system? How has our popular culture affected our political conversation? We as parents, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and all concerned citizens are often so busy with our daily lives that we miss signs of trouble (political, economic and cultural) and thus the solutions for tackling them. These are some of the questions Laura Ingraham tackles in her substantive, passionate, hilarious—and always thought provoking—speeches to business, academic and issues-oriented audiences across America.

Ron Insana (Exclusively WSB)

Despite an unbridled optimism about America’s future, Ron Insana believes recent developments in the United States do raise concerns that the renewed ascent of the American economy could face some serious threats in the near and intermediate-term. In this presentation, Insana addresses these issues head on to ensure that corporations, financial firms, markets and even our government do not become complacent about risk. Complacency is the most pernicious enemy of progress, and with that in mind, he has outlined five factors for audience members to takeaway that he believes are necessary to acknowledge as the United States continues its recovery from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

They are:

  • Global Deflation
  • An Unfriendly Fed
  • A New Cold War/A New Hot War
  • A Loss of Energy
  • America’s Age of Austerity

All of these issues are simmering beneath the surface of an economic rebound, and Insana feels he would be remiss if he did not raise some cautionary flags to audience members in an effort to highlight the factors that could shake the very foundations of “Fortress America."

Ron Insana (Exclusively WSB)

In a country suffering from post-traumatic economic stress, where 61% of Americans believe the next generation will be the first to have a lower standard of living than they themselves enjoyed, Ron Insana reminds Americans that the country is, and will always be, a “Field of Dreams”. America is a country that brings forth opportunities to all and constantly re-invents its ability to imagine and innovate. The United States leads the world in innovation, and innovation and entrepreneurialism create high-paying, value-added jobs. Insana knows that talking about the American Dream though is not enough. In this thought-provoking presentation, he dares Americans to reimagine the dream, re-build its foundations and re-direct its course. A financial expert, Insana offers unique perspectives and thoughtful analysis as he explores topics with the audience from conversations around energy independence and the latest technologies, to foreign investors and political leadership. He encourages the audience to rethink the world we live in and strive to update American systems to that the economy can grow at its fullest potential—and with that restore opportunity for today and for the future.

Walter Isaacson (Exclusively WSB)

What secrets do history’s luminaries share?  Esteemed author Walter Isaacson—who was given exclusive and unprecedented access to the subject of his most recent book, Steve Jobs, is widely considered to be one of today’s most insightful biographers. Isaacson’s ability to brilliantly capture the unique cultural currents surrounding America’s greatest leaders and creative thinkers is showcased in his best-selling books on Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Ben Franklin and Henry Kissinger.
