Shaukat Aziz (Exclusively WSB)

Age-old conflict in the Middle East and parts of Asia continue to derail a focus on the other issues that plague the region including poverty, hunger, disease, and illiteracy. To truly tackle the systemic challenges of the region, tensions must first be reduced and countries must join together for a common purpose. As the prime minister of Pakistan, Aziz worked closely with leaders of other countries on peace, security and economic prosperity. In this enlightening presentation the prime minister will underscore the need for:

  • An assessment of the current events of the regions and what core issues must be addressed
  • A renewed commitment to regional peace, security and economic prosperity
  • How Pakistan must serve as a key player as a major Muslim country, which can be a stabilizing influence for the entire Muslim world and the world at large.
  • Root Causes of Terrorism and Possible Solutions
  • Bridging the Gaps Between Faiths and the Need for Promoting Interfaith Harmony

In this motivational speech, Dr. Sampson Davis speaks about growing up in one of New Jersey’s poorest cities, and his journey toward becoming an emergency medicine physician. With stories shared from his latest book, Living and Dying in Brick City, Dr. Davis explains how his city earned its nickname—Brick City. It is the grit and toughness of Newark that allows such a moniker to be born. His story is an inspiring one filled with dramatic details and anecdotes.

He also explains how these issues complicate healthy life options that are further strained by an undersupply of health care providers and facilities.

Success—what does it look like? How does one achieve it? Dr. Sampson Davis speaks adamantly about success. The first necessary step is to seek out like-minded friends to form a pact. When pursuing a goal, it is vital to have a team approach. This solidarity helps to drive you and keep one motivated especially during moments where you want to give up. We all need a muse. Show me a successful person and I will show you his successful circle. The pact approach is what saved Dr. Davis’ life, when he and his two friends made a promise to each other to become doctors. This oath pushed him beyond his conceivable limits. He never realized he could reach such heights but knowing he was going to be held accountable served as motivation. Simply, he didn’t want to disappoint his two friends. If we are able to form pacts across the country towards a common goal, then we can begin to achieve insurmountable success. His story of overcoming unfathomable odds is chronicled in his New York Times best seller The Pact.

How can people live their faiths publicly without trampling on the rights of others? What is the boundary between religious expression and personal freedom? As director of President Obama’s faith-based initiative and author of the best-selling book, The President's Devotional, Joshua DuBois gives audiences an update and path forward on religious expression in American public life.

Tony Dungy (Exclusively WSB)

Tony Dungy’s life is informed by an unswerving dedication to his faith. Dungy shares with audiences his understanding of how community service, sacrifice and commitment—both on the field and off—result in successes that don’t always end up in box scores.

David Gregory (Exclusively WSB)

A President of the United States once asked David Gregory, “How’s your faith?” That question did not come out of the blue. George W. Bush asked Gregory this question while he was covering the White House after hearing that he had been studying the Bible for several years. Gregory’s book How’s Your Faith? An Unlikely Spiritual Journey chronicles the story of his return to faith as an adult to find deeper meaning in his life and make sense of some painful parts of his past. Unexpected experiences in his career will additionally surprise the audience. Gregory charts his personal journey towards finding something greater, speaking on what he learned of President Bush’s faith and what he learned about his own faith and purpose during the humbling experience of losing his job at NBC in this impassioned, sincere presentation.

Bobby Jindal (Exclusively WSB)

Raised in a Hindu household by Indian immigrants, Bobby Jindal takes his audience on an inspiring journey, speaking openly about his decision to convert to Christianity and his eventual baptism into the Roman Catholic Church as a teenager. From the exact moment God felt tangible to Jindal, to the fear he had about breaking the news to his family, he shares with audiences the role that faith and family values have played throughout his life—how they have kept him grounded both personally and professionally—and addresses the war on religious liberty confronting the United States today. Unveiling the emotional and intellectual struggles of his spiritual journey from Hinduism to Christianity, Jindal offers an authentic perspective, looks to the future, and shares stories about the ways in which he remains active in the faith community.

Bill Press (Exclusively WSB)

A former seminarian with a degree in theology, as well as a radio/TV talk show host, Bill Press talks about one of the most important issues facing the nation: the intersection between faith and politics. Press argues that Republicans have "overdone" it, by making an unholy alliance with the religious right; but that Democrats have "underdone" it, by ignoring religion and appearing too secular. Referencing his acclaimed book, How the Republicans Stole Christmas, Press gives his formula for the correct mix of faith and politics.

Major Dan Rooney, USAF (Exclusively WSB)

Growing up in Stillwater Oklahoma, Major Dan Rooney dreamed of becoming a USAF Fighter Pilot and a PGA Golf Professional; he had no idea how these dreams would manifest into a life changing mission.

Major Rooney’s life of purpose exemplifies a man committed to serving his God, family, and country. His stories demonstrate the power of providence in our lives. He describes in captivating detail the signposts placed by God guiding his journey. He teaches and empowers his audience with the skills and perspective to recognize the intervention of God in their own lives, and inspires them to have the faith to take action when God calls.

Major Rooney’s passion and faith are palpable. The authenticity and humility of his story evoke laughter, tears and reflection. But most importantly, he motivates his audience to be their personal best. In the final analysis of life, God gives us all unique talents. We are accountable for how we used those gifts to have a positive impact on the world around us.
