Prior to the Boston Marathon bombing, Heather Abbott had a career she enjoyed, and the love of friends of family—yet something was still missing.

Learn how you can uncover the purpose that will drive your life—and change the lives of countless others.

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.

A global citizen uses his or her everyday life as a vehicle to serve others. Global Citizenship (GC) does not mean giving up our possessions and traveling the world to volunteer—it means finding moments each day, both inside and outside the office, as a means to contribute. Once we identify our unique gifts and abilities we can transform them into a means to serve. The good news is we can do this in essentially any career on Earth!

Bash traveled to over 30 countries before realizing that being a global citizen has nothing to do with traveling the world. Global Citizenship is a mentality we carry with us in our hearts that strengthens our relationships, builds trust in ourselves, and breathes life into our productive winds. It is categorized by authenticity, openness and a genuine concern for others. Having trained with Mongolian herdsmen, walked for clean water in Haiti and harvested buffalo in Pine Ridge, Bash defines the new global citizenship mentality—one that we can apply to our lives today.

Shane Battier (Exclusively WSB)

What can I control? How do my passion and distinguished skills add value to my organization? In the face of discouragement and desolation, these are some of the questions that Shane Battier often asked himself in his endeavors toward success. He shares his personal story with audiences and expounds on how factors such as dedication, resilience and tenacity ultimately rendered Battier an invaluable member of championship winning teams. Deemed the “No-Stats All-Star” by best-selling author Michael Lewis in a New York Times Magazine cover story, audience members are emboldened to apply Battier’s strategy, vision and leadership skills in their own professional careers in this thought-provoking and impactful presentation.

As a master in his field, Beschloss brings us inspiring, humorous and tragic never-before-told stories of American presidents – from George Washington to George W. Bush – as they struggle with war, peace and domestic crisis. He reveals the qualities that have made great presidents in history and shows how to find leaders who have them now – in politics, business and civic life.
