Dr. Zubin Damania (ZDoggMD) explores the challenges of delivering compassionate health care in our severely dysfunctional medical system, while proposing collaborative ways to revitalize it. He uses humor and personal storytelling to paint an arc that begins with the idealism that first draws us into our careers and life paths, followed by the disillusionment that results when we meet a system fundamentally discordant with those hopes and dreams.

Mitch Daniels (Exclusively WSB)

Currently serving as president of Purdue University, Mitch Daniels is passionate about making a difference in the lives of Americans through education at all levels and recognizes that the higher education world we have known is likely headed for a big change. While serving two successful terms as governor of Indiana, Daniels was admired for his landmark legislation which included revising teacher evaluations, improving funding for early childhood education and increasing access to post-secondary schooling. In his presentations to audiences, Daniels expertly outlines the common realities facing the U.S.’s education system (rising tuition costs, inequality of access, economic value to students) and the practical measures needed to improve the health of our universities and bridge the gap between today’s educational system with the technology of tomorrow. Stemming from his extensive experience in both the public and private sectors, Daniels offers audiences an innovative education model for a new world.

As the first member in his family to attend college, Dr. Sampson Davis speaks candidly about how education saved his life. Aiming to become “the Michael Jordan of education,” Dr. Davis inspires high school, college and graduate students alike to remain steadfast in their pursuit of academics. Referencing stories from his best-selling books The Pact, The Bond and We Beat the Street, Dr. Davis will inspire all students in their pursuit of academic achievement. His blueprint toward higher education has served as a resource for community-wide reads, grammar school and high school assemblies, college first year experience  lectures, college-themed talks and commencement speeches.
