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.

For several years, Ron Insana has been touting the rise of “Fortress America,” even as others have heralded the emergence of the Asian Century. The Fortress appears to have some cracks, as radical shifts in U.S. foreign, fiscal, and regulatory policies could make it less impregnable than ever before.

With the gutting of the U.S. diplomatic corps, the American withdrawal from—or renegotiation of—key multilateral agreements, from the Paris Climate Accord to TPP to NAFTA, the United States is risking its leadership position in the world, its ability to aid its allies, and its credibility in admonishing its adversaries. While the elimination of costly regulations has been a boon to businesses and stock prices, the long-term consequences of these changes are not yet known.

What happens if the pillars of Fortress America—energy independence, manufacturing, technological innovation, demographic and political stability—begin to weaken? Ron Insana explores how the shifting domestic and global political environments could strain the economy, disrupt certain industries, and affect financial markets in the relatively near future.

The world has gone almost seven years without a major event roiling the financial markets. That’s an unusually long time for stocks to go without falling at least 20% or more. Since 1987, markets have experienced a so-called “Seven Sigma,” “Black Swan,” or similarly unexpected event about every two to three years. However, the U.S. market, for its part, has not even seen a 3% pullback in a full year, an unprecedented stretch of rising stock prices and extraordinarily low volatility. History has shown us that such conditions rarely last that long.

In this riveting presentation, Ron Insana explores several different scenarios in which the economy, businesses, and markets could get rocked by unexpected events, including:  

  • The economy in overdrive
  • A fight at the Fed
  • From Kim to Khameini, the risk of war

 

  • Ben Franklin and America's Virtues
  • Einstein - His Life and Universe
  • The Media and American Culture

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. Bringing audiences closer to these remarkable figures, Isaacson discusses the vital information that can be learned from them—including the common traits they share and how those traits can be used to empower today’s business leaders.  Sharing fascinating details of how success came to each of these men through the questioning of conventional wisdom and a willingness to explore new ideas, he provides an astute analysis of timeless leadership principles and the lessons they can teach us on fostering the creativity necessary to compete in a new century of globalization.
