Sam Kass (Exclusively WSB)

Sam Kass understands that health care remains one of the leading costs corporations face today. Infusing wit and candor to captivate audiences with personal stories from inside the White House, Kass offers unique and informative perspectives on the tools and initiatives organizations can implement today to combat these losses. As the former executive director of the First Lady’s “Let’s Move!” campaign and former senior White House policy advisor for nutrition policy, Kass worked with both Congress and the private sector to shape strategic national policies and launch a global discussion. He firmly believes for corporations to successfully address the related costs of health care, executives must first instill a higher value on both employee and customer health. He addresses wellness issues that directly impact your bottom line and explores opportunities that exist for your organization by way of the latest up-and-coming health care developments. Having been a driving force at the forefront of health policy in the United States and an enduring catalyst for global change, Kass earnestly speaks to the issues that bear most on your audience in this thought-provoking and informative presentation.

Sam Kass (Exclusively WSB)

Making healthy choices is far easier said than done. As the director of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, Sam Kass garnered acclaim for his leadership at the forefront of the First Lady’s national, multifaceted initiative to encourage healthy eating and exercise for all Americans—and people are listening.

An innovative take on the modern “keynote”, Kass delights and informs audiences, taking them behind the scenes of what it was like to serve as a public face for “Let’s Move!”, and more. From replacing the “food pyramid” to reshaping food labels, Kass is able to address the significance of specific policies he not only helped to shape, but acted persistently on to enact. He is credited for advancing policies through Congress at unprecedented speed. Audiences are captivated by his candor, entertaining narratives, and unique analysis of today’s health climate and food systems. Additionally, Kass can explore the impact that sustainability, wellness and health care policies have in workplace environments; tips and tricks to setting up both home and work environments for success in endeavors towards healthy living; and incentives that organizations can establish for their employees.

Mark King (Exclusively WSB)

In any flat market there are companies that shrink and those who grow. As everyone knows during such times there is only one way to grow: Take market share from your competitors. This is precisely what TaylorMade did under Mark King’s leadership. From 2000 to present day, golf has been a no-growth market. During that time TaylorMade quadrupled its size from 300 million to 1.2 billion dollars and continues to show solid growth. One of Mark’s core beliefs centers around the concept of growth as a cultural mindset that must be infused into the bloodstream of the organization at every level. It is the leader’s responsibility to establish this and be a tireless promoter of it.

Key Ideas:

  • Vision and strategy are meaningless without a fully engaged staff
  • Set goals and challenge people to drive the “How.” The results will astound you
  • Create an environment where people have a sense of belonging
  • Creating energy and changing minds ultimately drives sustainable results
  • Change the rules of the game

Mark King (Exclusively WSB)

The secret to the future isn’t doing what you’ve done in the past better. The secret is creating new and different things the world has never seen before. If you want to continue to play by the rules of the marketplace or play by the rules of the industry nothing much is going to change. You can get incrementally better. You can get tighter focused. You can execute better. But if you want to do something extraordinary, you have to rewrite the playbook. Growth is not predicated by market conditions, competitors or customers. You are responsible for your own growth and changing the trajectory of your company and industry. Growth is a mindset which, once instilled into the bloodstream of an organization, is infectious beyond belief. Mark tells his story of transforming the adidas culture in America to create a new kind of energy and enthusiasm for a 60+ year-old brand. Recognizing people as thinkers and not just doers allowed a complete transformation of a well-established corporate culture. Mark talks about competing in today’s world where consumers look forward, not backwards and how – to constantly reinvent yourself – you must engage your people.

Key Ideas:

  • Change the rules of the game.
  • Set goals and challenge people to drive the “how.” The results will astound you.
  • Extraordinary people prepare for opportunities they don’t even know exist.
  • Drive constant idea generation and don’t wait for perfection.
  • Experiment! Be courageous.
  • Mindset is everything: believe you can and you can.
  • Create an environment of open-thinking

Ezra Klein (Exclusively WSB)

Vox first launched online in 2014. By February 2016, it was getting more than 300 million content views a month across a range of platforms and blazing new trails in digital journalism. As founder and editor-in-chief, Ezra Klein spends much of his time thinking about how the new business is changing and how to make Vox a beneficiary of those changes, rather than a victim of them. In this engaging and informative presentation, Klein shares stories from behind-the-scenes of a 21st Century digital news publication, and offers insights to audiences on:

-           What it means to be a truly digital organization

-           How to create an institutional culture that can evolve and adapt quickly

-           Why people often mistake cultural problems for technological ones

Sarah Kliff spends most of her time reporting on the American healthcare system. But in 2015, she found herself learning about healthcare from a different vantage point: as a patient with a chronic foot injury that no doctor could seem to fix. In a widely-read essay for vox.com, Kliff wrote that she learned an important lesson about the healthcare system: that medicine places an immense burden on patients to do much of the work of coordinating their own care. Kliff weaves together personal narrative and her healthcare reporting to explain how patients became the unpaid cog in the American healthcare system — and what type of changes at hospitals and doctors’ offices can change that. For those who provide healthcare, this is an eye-opening look into the challenges their patients can often face.

From the perspective of a leading physician-scientist, inventor and innovator, Dr. Daniel Kraft will examine rapidly emerging, game-changing and convergent technology trends and how they are and will be leveraged to change the face of healthcare and the practice of medicine in the next decade, crossing the healthcare continuum from health and prevention to diagnostics and therapy. A dive into where emergent fields such as low cost personal genomics, digital health, crowdsourced data, molecular imaging, wearable devices & mobile health, synthetic biology, robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing to gene therapy and regenerative medicine are transforming healthcare, and have the potential to enable clinicians, empower patients and payers and deliver better, more proactive care while improving outcomes at lower cost.

Vivek Kundra (Exclusively WSB)

With continuing reports of foreign governments hacking into businesses and governments around the world, cyber security has moved from being just an IT problem to being one of the top issues facing corporations today. As we all grapple with what these cyber threats mean for our business, personal and national security, technology visionary and Salesforce.com EVP Vivek Kundra helps audiences understand the importance of being on the offense when it comes to protecting your organization's vital interests. As a member of the Obama Administration, it was Kundra’s responsibility to lead the Federal government’s cyber security initiatives, improving response times, outcomes and the processes that hindered the cyber security management capabilities of the world’s largest purveyor of IT services. Today, Kundra helps audiences understand:

  • Current cyber threats and best-in-class counter measures
  • What the business and government community needs to do to broadly confront the cyber security issue
  • How cyber security is now an organizational problem and what both IT and organizational leaders need to do to get all stakeholders on the offense in confronting this issue
  • How collaboration lays a crucial role in ensuring security
