David Plouffe (Exclusively WSB)

David Plouffe is the “architect” of President Barack Obama's two national election victories, which had at their core a belief in young people and their desire to have their voices heard. Plouffe's strategy in the 2008 primaries relied on mobilizing new voters to turn out, going against the conventional wisdom that they would tune out and not show up at the polls. Confounding the experts, Obama's two general election wins were fueled by young voter turnout. Plouffe shares his unique insight into what motivates millennials and his passionate belief that this is a more selfless and talented generation than his own, and what that will mean not just for the millennial generation, but also for the nation and the world. Plouffe's own story of going from cleaning chimneys and selling knives door-to-door in college to eventually working next to the Oval Office shows that anyone who is interested in public service and politics can leave their mark, and he strongly encourages college students and all young people to be part of molding the future they will soon lead.

Michael Powell (Exclusively WSB)

Michael Powell knows what it means to sacrifice. After beginning his life as an Army child, Powell was commissioned an armored cavalry officer in the U.S. Army. But a serious injury during a training accident forced him into a grueling year-long rehabilitation. It was here that Powell learned about service and personal sacrifice, understanding what's necessary to reach one's goals. As well, Powell learned the value of service to a higher cause from his parents. Powell reflects warmly on what it means to be a part of a community, to take charge and make a difference in your company and the lives of others. Additionally, he reflects on his experience as an African-American, how that informs his passion for service, and how education remains one of his guiding principals as path towards a better future for society and the culture at large.

One of the 21st century’s most fervent purveyors of democratic values, General Colin Powell understands the power of diplomacy and the universal human ideal of democracy to build trust and transform once-unstable regions into areas where societies and cultures prosper. As well, he understands that the power of persuasion, reason and building trust are immeasurably effective in getting governments to cooperate for the overall common good of their people and the rest of the world. In a compelling presentation filled with humor and anecdotes from years of service at the highest levels of international affairs, Powell, former U.S. secretary of state, describes the delicate process of forging alliances, bringing people and countries together and promoting universal human ideals of democracy and peace around the world.
