Mallory Weggemann (Exclusively WSB)

According to Mallory Weggeman, one of the keys to leadership is to tackle a seemingly insurmountable challenge by achieving small victories along the way. While fighting her way to the Rio Paralympic Games in 2016 after suffering a debilitating arm injury, Weggemann discovered one of the greatest qualities leaders possess is the ability to adapt—particularly in the face of overwhelming obstacles. She applies this resilience to every facet of life, from her training to her decision to learn how to walk down the aisle at her wedding. Speaking with Sports Illustrated following the Rio Games, Weggemann reflected, “[In] a lot of ways, the fight it took for me to get to Rio was much more significant than the fight it took for me to get to London. The amount of pride that I have in what happened in Rio goes far beyond any medals I could have brought home at that point.” Weggemann teaches audiences how to celebrate small victories and to use setbacks as tools to develop teams.

Bob Woodruff (Exclusively WSB)

Normally one reporting the stories from the Middle East, Bob Woodruff suddenly and violently became the story: in January of 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces, Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near Taji, Iraq. The long and arduous journey back included numerous surgeries and months of rehabilitation. In this presentation, based on his best-selling memoir In An Instant, Woodruff recounts the events preceding and following this awful event, how it completely altered his perspective on career and family, how he coped and overcame these circumstances, and what audiences can learn to recover from shattering events in their own lives.

Lee Woodruff (Exclusively WSB)

Whether it’s a child in a car accident, a spouse’s request for a divorce, a patient’s stroke, a diagnosis of breast cancer, or a terrorist attack on a warm day in September—life can change in an instant for us all.

As co-author of In An Instant, the #1 New York Times best seller, Lee Woodruff recounts her story of a marriage, a family, a crisis and a healing. When her husband, ABC’s newly appointed co-anchor Bob Woodruff, was hit by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq, Woodruff’s life changed in an instant. She had to learn to put her own grief aside to care for her children, as well as her husband, who was gravely injured and close to death. In the words of Bishop Desmond Tutu—"Suffering is not optional. It seems to be part and parcel of the human condition, but suffering can embitter or ennoble."

Woodruff speaks with grace and humor about her own family’s experience and how they chose to attack the crisis that befell them, resulting in a life-changing journey of love, healing and miracles for her whole family.
