Andrew Card (Exclusively WSB)

In the global marketplace, new business or investment opportunities arise every day. But determining whether or not to do business or invest in developing nations, or nations emerging from recent instances of strife, can be difficult without the insight or experience to properly formulate the decision. Drawing on his experience in the White House, Andy Card was responsible for understanding the infrastructure and political culture of nations around the globe. He provides a broad overview of the current geopolitical strengths and risks of doing business or investing around the world including Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Latin America.

Ash Carter (Exclusively WSB)

Like all organizations, the Defense Department is operating at a time of global change. The rapidly growing Asia-Pacific is increasingly becoming the world’s economic, political and military center of gravity. An emboldened and newly aggressive Russia is modernizing its tactical, technological and cyber intelligence capabilities. And the threat of terrorism, whether from the Islamic State or homegrown ‘lone-wolf’ actors, must be countered. Ash Carter describes the new defense playbook and demonstrates how to take the lessons of history and leverage our nation’s and military’s unique strengths in new ways for new threats. He demonstrates how to develop more agile strategies that prioritize the expansion of cybersecurity capabilities and other modern tools alongside continued dynamic diplomacy. As the U.S. adapts its leadership role in a changing global landscape, he deftly outlines the issues and the fights that will define the years to come.
