As a breast cancer "thriver," a mother of three internationally adopted children, an avid sportswoman, and a trailblazer in national media, Laura Ingraham has a message for today's women: embrace, then conquer, your challenges--with humor! Ingraham, the nation's #1 female talk political/cultural radio host, Fox News star, and #1 bestselling New York Times author, inspires women and girls across America with her can-do, take-no-prisoners, joyful, approach to life's pinnacles and pitfalls. Part of Laura's message: Each of us, rich or poor, successful or struggling, has a unique set of challenges, yet we also have the the inner strength and individual talents to overcome them. Her presentations remind audiences that everything they need to achieve the elusive balance between our professional and personal pursuits is within their own control. A grueling regimen of chemotherapy, business dilemmas, and personal demands, didn't stop her from producing another top selling book, hosting her daily three-hour a day show, or planning her first broadcast live from Iraq during the war. She wouldn't let it. Whether she's holding both political parties accountable while hosting a television show or moderating a debate on ADHD on her radio show, Ingraham offers a captivating presentation that invariably has audiences talking long after her program has concluded.

Walter Isaacson (Exclusively WSB)

Based on his best-selling book, Steve Jobs, Isaacson shares with audiences the riveting story of the roller-coaster life and intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing and digital publishing. At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the 21st century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Isaacson takes audiences on the journey over the past two years in writing the book and the story about the man himself which is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership and values. Jobs put nothing off limits for Isaacson when working on the book, encouraging the people he knew to speak honestly, and  speaks candidly himself, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes and colleagues provided Isaacson an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry and compulsion for control that shaped Jobs’ approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

Walter Isaacson (Exclusively WSB)

What secrets do history’s luminaries share?  Esteemed author Walter Isaacson—who was given exclusive and unprecedented access to the subject of his most recent book, Steve Jobs, is widely considered to be one of today’s most insightful biographers. Isaacson’s ability to brilliantly capture the unique cultural currents surrounding America’s greatest leaders and creative thinkers is showcased in his best-selling books on Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Ben Franklin and Henry Kissinger. Bringing audiences closer to these remarkable figures, Isaacson discusses the vital information that can be learned from them—including the common traits they share and how those traits can be used to empower today’s business leaders.  Sharing fascinating details of how success came to each of these men through the questioning of conventional wisdom and a willingness to explore new ideas, he provides an astute analysis of timeless leadership principles and the lessons they can teach us on fostering the creativity necessary to compete in a new century of globalization.

Walter Isaacson (Exclusively WSB)

Art, engineering, and technology. Anatomy, geology, and weaponry. What do these subjects have in common? They were studied with passion and imagination by Leonardo da Vinci. At the crossroads of the humanities and the sciences, he is history’s most creative genius. Walter Isaacson brings Leonardo to life, highlighting all we have to learn from him. His myriad of interests remain an enduring recipe for creativity. So, too, does his ease at being a misfit: illegitimate, gay, vegetarian, left-handed, easily distracted, at times heretical. His relentless curiosity demonstrates the importance of not just receiving knowledge but being willing to question it—to be imaginative and, like talented rebels from any era, to think differently. Isaacson draws from the original Renaissance man to teach audiences the importance of creativity and challenging the status quo.
