Madeleine K. Albright (Exclusively WSB)

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright speaks with humor, insight and eloquence about her life and career as a young refugee who rose to become for a time the world’s most powerful woman. Albright sketches a vivid portrait of her years as Secretary of State and offers candid descriptions of the leaders she encountered in Washington and overseas. She also discusses America’s global role and the many challenges facing President Trump and other world leaders today. While in office, Albright was renowned for her courage in “telling it like it is.” Now, as a best-selling author and successful businessperson, she offers a unique and always lively account of service at the highest levels of the U.S. government.

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.

With over 15 years of experience as a medical journalist, Dr. Holly Atkinson gives a fascinating talk on medicine and the media. She explores the challenges that consumers face today in sorting through the glut of medical information reported by the nation's press. One week the headlines rave about the benefits of antioxidant vitamins or calcium; the next week they’re panned. Does a low-fat diet protect you against disease or not? So, how much exercise do you really need? Should menopausal women ever take hormones? Dr. Atkinson gives practical tips on how to read the medical news and sort through the clutter, and in the process, gives answers to many of burning questions that the health conscious audience is dying to ask.

For decades, the medical establishment ignored many diseases of women, conducted medical experiments with only male subjects and virtually failed to recognize the role of gender in healthcare. In this speech, Dr. Atkinson brings the audience up to date on the latest in women's health: what's hot, what's not, what's controversial and what questions women need to ask their doctors. In the question and answer period that follows, she fields questions about the best medical treatments for women; for heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, breast cancer, weight loss, menopause and more. Not to be missed!

Dr. Atkinson wrote what's now considered the definitive book on the subject. After 20 years, Women and Fatigue is still going strong, and Dr. Atkinson is still getting standing ovations from audiences when she delivers this incredibly inspirational speech. Fatigue is a very real problem for women that, too often, families and physicians fail to take seriously. Dr. Atkinson stresses -- to the great relief of women—that fatigue is not a figment of the imagination. Most of time, there are several causes of a woman's fatigue and the good news is that something can be done about them. Dr. Atkinson shares with the audience the major energy drainers and major energy boosters, and gives countless practical tips on how to tip the balance in favor of the boosters. Every woman will come away from this speech having laughed a lot, and learned a lot not only about how to conquer her fatigue, but how to live her best life.

Although we've made significant inroads against heart disease in the last 25 years, it is still the leading killer of American men and women. Dr. Atkinson shares with the audience the latest facts about heart disease, the recent revised weight recommendations, practical advice about diet and exercise and ways to manage stress and anger. This presentation can be specifically tailored to women, who still too often believe that only men have heart attacks. In the women-only event, Dr. Atkinson focuses on the role that estrogen plays in protecting a woman's heart, and whether or not taking hormone replacement therapy after menopause is a good idea especially in light of the new findings of the Women's Health Initiative Study. This presentation will be followed by a very lively question and answer period.

Michelle Bernard (Exclusively WSB)

After years of struggle, the United States has made tremendous strides in advancing women’s human rights around the world. Michelle Bernard argues that American women now need to move beyond “the first, second and third wave feminism and the notion of women’s issues” and employ for a fourth wave of feminism that recognizes that ALL issues are women’s issues. With astounding successes reached in business, politics and culture, Bernard calls for action toward structural changes that will level the playing field for women candidates regardless of party affiliation, ensure that the voices of women are heard on the most important public policy issues of the day, and advance policies that build strong, 21st Century families and communities—and even a stronger nation—and offers advice to women on how to persevere, work together, build coalitions by seeking areas of common ground, prioritize their lives and be their best selves.

Bernard shows audiences:

  • What the future holds for women, politics and public policy at home and abroad
  • How political candidacies of women shed light on the differences between what she refers to as “Red State, Blue State, and Millennial feminism” and the largely ignored “fourth wave” free-market feminism embraced by many American women today
  • How the lives of ordinary American women, their children and families are affected by the failure of many left- and right-of-center leaders, both women and men, to recognize many of the very real problems facing American women today because they fail to recognize that all issues are women’s issues
  • That the feminist movement, policy makers and others have largely ignored the plight of women around the world, particularly those in Islamic countries who do not enjoy the basic human rights and freedoms that American women enjoy, and that today’s American feminists policy makers and others have a moral obligation to advocate for human rights and equality for women abroad

Sarah Brown (Exclusively WSB)

Acknowledging the dire need to help impoverished nations, in 2001 the United Nations adopted the Millennium Development Goals to create long-lasting change around the rights of each person on the planet to health, education, shelter and security. As a leader intimately involved with these efforts from her role on the front lines of the struggle to create a more just world—particularly when it comes to issues of health equity and women’s health, Sarah Brown is a compelling voice in the global campaign to end injustice, poverty and inequality. In her keynote presentations, Brown highlights the progress that has been made—and the opportunities to do good that still exist. Brown’s words inspire action in identifying and empowering those around the globe to extend help to those most in need.

Sarah Brown (Exclusively WSB)

From her unique vantage point inside 10 Downing Street, Brown walked the world stage alongside other powerful women: Laura Bush, Michelle Obama, Queen Rania of Jordan, Arianna Huffington and Melinda Gates among others. Her position was at the international crossroads of power, politics and global diplomacy and she shares her thoughts on women’s role as leaders in business, government, nonprofits and academia.
