Madeleine K. Albright (Exclusively WSB)

In an up-close-and-personal format, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright sits down for a candid discussion, sharing her perspective on the current state of world affairs and on the personalities who shape today’s headlines. Audiences are given unprecedented access to one of the globe’s most powerful, respected and vibrant women as Albright sheds light on challenges both personal and public. Albright responds to questions from both the moderator and the audience, and engages in a no-holds-barred discussion of issues ranging from war and peace to the challenge of juggling career and family life.

Bret Baier (Exclusively WSB)

In this presentation, Baier shares with audiences his son Paul’s brave journey through the seemingly endless maze of medical procedures and operations required to sustain his life since being born in 2007 with five congenital heart defects. Three open-heart surgeries and seven angioplasties later, Paul's example of courage and resilience has served to transform Bret and his wife Amy's beliefs about what matters most in life - totally reshaping their definitions of character, faith, hope, courage and love.  Facing the greatest crisis of their lives, Baier interweaves Paul's almost six-year medical ordeal with Bret and Amy's own journey from the depths of despair to acceptance then to hope. Told through the eyes of a loving father and master storyteller, audiences will hear Paul's inspiring story from a man who just happens to be someone millions turn to for the day's news.  Although there are plenty of tears and pain to work through, at its core their story is an uplifting and inspiring testament to the endurance and hope of an American family in crisis. Surviving every parent's worst nightmare, Bret and Amy emerge—just like their courageous son—scarred but not broken.

No two speeches of Dave Barry's are exactly the same. Dave brings his hilarious sense of humor to your stage and offers up his wacky point of view on relationships, work, kids, technology, and life in general.

Sarah Brown (Exclusively WSB)

In this intimate, reflective, surprising and funny presentation about life at 10 Downing Street, Sarah Brown shares the secrets of living behind the most famous front door in the world. Brown gave up a successful career in business to serve her country and champion countless charities at home and abroad. A passionate campaigner for women and children, she mobilized hundreds of thousands of people through her early adoption of Twitter where her legion of followers engaged with her on everything from repression in Burma to diversity in British fashion. From what it's like to travel with a security detail, pack for a photo call with supermodels or pause a speech in front of hundreds when the teleprompter fails to what to do when the school play clashes with a visit to the White House, Brown takes the audience backstage to reveal what it's like to be an ordinary woman, wife and mother in extraordinary circumstances.

Barbara Pierce Bush (Exclusively WSB)

United in their humanitarian missions and the spirit of service—as well as through their close family bond—Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager have found a shared purpose in giving voice to the disadvantaged while bringing to light stories of hope. Coming from a unique vantage point as the only twins to grow up in the White House as both grandchildren and children, Barbara and Jenna were inspired to live lives of meaning from an early age. Stemming from their travels to impoverished areas in Africa and Latin America, they have now made it their life’s calling to address the most pressing health, education and economic inequality issues of our time. Whether through Barbara’s creation of Global Health Corps or Jenna’s position as a Today correspondent and UNICEF chair, both women help spread the message that ideas put to action are the best kind. With their special brand of infectious warmth and kind humor—evidenced in their delightful back and forth banter during their presentations—this dynamic pair will ignite an audience’s passion to serve and inspire future young leaders to give back in their schools, local communities or abroad.

Doro Bush Koch (Exclusively WSB)

“A daughter,” Doro Bush Koch writes in her New York Times best-selling book My Father, The President, “may not have either the expertise or objectivity of a historian...but a historian doesn’t know a father the way his daughter does.” In this highly singular, personal perspective of her presidential father, George Herbert Walker Bush, Bush Koch speaks about his leadership qualities that contributed to his success in the political arena: his enduring ability to lead during times of strife, the humility and modesty that drew loyalty from people of all walks of life (including world leaders and former political foes) and the optimism that fueled his perspective on his country and the people in it. With humorous and moving anecdotes, Bush Koch pulls back the curtain on a richly layered life guided by family, faith and friendship.

Doro Bush Koch (Exclusively WSB)

Most of the U.S. saw President George H. W. Bush as a statesman and leader, someone perpetually on the world stage. But, as the daughter of the 41st president of the U.S., Doro Bush Koch was close to the man the cameras and reporters never saw: a father, a man possessed of a strong personal convictions, yet whose humility runs deep. In a unique presentation based on her best selling book My Father, My President, Koch engages the audience in a highly personal and candid conversation about the George H.W. Bush that few people saw. Opening herself up to questions, Koch—at once charming and disarming—draws back the political curtains to reveal her father in anecdotes that show his leadership style, his endless sense of fun and humor, and his ability to connect emotionally with those around him. Audiences discover what many of the world leaders, politicians and journalists Koch interviewed for her book already knew: that George H. W. Bush was a savvy politician and effective leader while remaining humble, kind and generous.

Kevin Carroll (Exclusively WSB)

As children our days were filled with productive play. What was entertaining was also instructive. Games of tag were exercises in planning, teamwork, strategy, design, decision-making, creativity, interpersonal communication and risk-taking. Play was serious business in our youth—and it should be even more serious business in our professional lives if we hope to unleash the creative genius that spurs organizational growth. By cleverly drawing from childhood lessons, Kevin Carroll reveals the relevance of play and how we must continue to tap into those lessons for our future success. An innovator who passionately inspires leaders to create sustainable change in their own organizations, Carroll raises a variety of questions during the session including:

  • Are you continuing to strengthen the creative genius of your organization?
  • Do you have the necessary passion and creative endurance to deliver consistent and amazing insight and business ingenuity? 
  • Why should an organization’s business culture embrace the power of play even more so in the 21st Century?
  • How can a business culture that incorporates “purposeful play” impact leadership, employee quality of life, retention and attract new talent?

Liz Claman shares with audiences on how to soar both at professionally and personally in the new age of working mothers.

Anxiety, insomnia, muscle tension, fatigue, high blood pressure and anger are just a few of the physical symptoms of stress. Stress not only affects your body, but also creates behaviors that can lead to social withdrawal. This presentation will explore the nature of our mind and the various factors in our lives that cause us stress. Audience members will learn simple meditation techniques that can nourish the mind, which will lead to increased focus, greater productivity, improved relationships and better health.
