Madeleine K. Albright (Exclusively WSB)

As a former Secretary of State and current businesswoman, Madeleine Albright has a deep understanding of the connections that exist between international economic developments and geopolitical security. No one is better positioned than Albright to offer insights about the policy challenges faced by President Trump or to analyze the strategies being employed by other world leaders, including those in such pivotal countries as China, Russia, India, Pakistan and Iran. Dr. Albright is an expert on how decisions are made at the global level and has strong opinions on the pros and cons of investing in emerging markets. She also speaks with force, clarity and humor on the many parallels that exist between operating a business and managing world affairs.

José María Aznar (Exclusively WSB)

In this illuminating presentation, José María Aznar, Spain's prime minister from 1996 to 2004, explores how current international policy affects free trade in Europe, the U.S. and other countries around the world. Aznar shares with audiences the power and purpose of globalization and commercial relations, highlighting in particular the ramifications for underdeveloped countries. Aznar focuses on building stability and encouraging development in Latin America, where Spain has many links. He also details how globalization and commercial relations particularly favor those in underdeveloped countries, and stresses the importance of the “Atlantic link,” the interconnectivity of Europe and the U.S. as they strive to open up new markets around the world.

James Baker, III (Exclusively WSB)

Mr. Baker served as secretary of state as the Soviet Union collapsed and the Cold War ended, leaving the United States in a uniquely preeminent position – diplomatically, militarily and economically. Now, he says, terrorism and the development and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction have summoned the United States to a new and more difficult kind of leadership, both for our nation's own protection and to preserve peace and stability around the world. Mr. Baker reviews these and other global challenges, such as turmoil in Ukraine and the Middle East, North Korea's nuclear challenge, the need to integrate China into the international system, and the continuing battle for free trade and investment.

José Manuel Barroso (Exclusively WSB)

With an equal measure of sincerity and wit, José Manuel Barroso draws on his vast experiences to put the current geopolitical environment into context during this engaging and enlightening presentation. Audience members take away a modern and rationalized understanding of the geopolitical, economic and cultural pressures that must be faced to continue strengthening Europe’s global influence, create stability for the world’s citizens, and to promote a growth environment for multinational business.

José Manuel Barroso (Exclusively WSB)

In this moderated discussion, José Manuel Barroso examines subject matters such as: the future of the European Union, international security, the global economy, geopolitical trends, multicultural solidarity, emerging markets, and major nations of global concern such as America, China, Russia, Germany and Brazil. This presentation is focused and tailored to meet the specific needs of your audience.

Dramatic events in just the last three years have swept away many of the certainties and assumptions that businesses relied on to advance their global operations. In the broader Middle East, the events of the Arab Spring have radically reconfigured societies and often upended expectations about what kind of security states can provide. Terrorist violence has spread into new regions in Africa, while elsewhere, countries such as Brazil, Greece and Turkey have experienced widespread demonstrations and social unrest. At the State Department and the White House, Daniel Benjamin served at the center of international security policymaking, and he provides the audience with a map of the new global instability, separating myths from realities and explaining the forces that drive these transformations.

Since before the first al Qaeda attacks against American embassies in East Africa to the present day, Daniel Benjamin has been involved in America’s efforts to combat contemporary terrorism. As the longest-serving ambassador-at-large and chief of the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau and a White House counterterrorism official in the 1990s, Benjamin has been intimately involved in crafting the strategies that have weakened the world’s most formidable terrorist threat. Winner of the Council on Foreign Relations book award for The Age of Sacred Terror—a New York Times Notable Book—Benjamin provides a global perspective on the changing terrorist threat. He describes how the al Qaeda core in Pakistan has been crippled, and gauges the threats that have evolved in Yemen, Iraq and various parts of Africa. He examines the problem of Iran, the world’s foremost sponsor of terror, and its partner Lebanese Hezbollah. He describes how the Arab Spring has transformed the security landscape and the approaches we need to take to lock in the security gains of recent years. He also looks over the horizon at the long-term danger posed by the conflict in Syria and the sectarian strife now reshaping the Middle East and Persian Gulf.

Ben S. Bernanke (Exclusively WSB)

Drawing on his extraordinary career as chairman of the Federal Reserve, Dr. Ben S. Bernanke examines the current U.S. and global economic landscape and the key challenges facing the world today. His presentations are customized for each audience with conversational questions and answers from an interviewer.
