Madeleine K. Albright (Exclusively WSB)

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright speaks with humor, insight and eloquence about her life and career as a young refugee who rose to become for a time the world’s most powerful woman. Albright sketches a vivid portrait of her years as Secretary of State and offers candid descriptions of the leaders she encountered in Washington and overseas. She also discusses America’s global role and the many challenges facing President Trump and other world leaders today. While in office, Albright was renowned for her courage in “telling it like it is.” Now, as a best-selling author and successful businessperson, she offers a unique and always lively account of service at the highest levels of the U.S. government.

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.

In an up-close-and-personal format, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright sits down for a candid discussion, sharing her perspective on the current state of world affairs and on the personalities who shape today’s headlines. Audiences are given unprecedented access to one of the globe’s most powerful, respected and vibrant women as Albright sheds light on challenges both personal and public. Albright responds to questions from both the moderator and the audience, and engages in a no-holds-barred discussion of issues ranging from war and peace to the challenge of juggling career and family life.

Shaukat Aziz (Exclusively WSB)

Age-old conflict in the Middle East and parts of Asia continue to derail a focus on the other issues that plague the region including poverty, hunger, disease, and illiteracy. To truly tackle the systemic challenges of the region, tensions must first be reduced and countries must join together for a common purpose. As the prime minister of Pakistan, Aziz worked closely with leaders of other countries on peace, security and economic prosperity. In this enlightening presentation the prime minister will underscore the need for:

  • An assessment of the current events of the regions and what core issues must be addressed
  • A renewed commitment to regional peace, security and economic prosperity
  • How Pakistan must serve as a key player as a major Muslim country, which can be a stabilizing influence for the entire Muslim world and the world at large.
  • Root Causes of Terrorism and Possible Solutions
  • Bridging the Gaps Between Faiths and the Need for Promoting Interfaith Harmony

José María Aznar (Exclusively WSB)

From his unique perspective as Spain’s prime minister from 1996 to 2004, José María Aznar explores how, over the past year, the promise and great expectations of “the Arab Spring” have turned into a new and less optimistic reality—“the Arab Winter.” Aznar shares with his audiences his concerns for the future of the region and the interests of the West. He looks at the long neglect of pro-Western groups in North Africa and the Gulf as the West sought to avoid friction with existing rulers, creating contradictory political and military strategies among those nations. The formulation of “an approach that is not shortsighted or naïve” is, he believes, essential—that if the West applauds everything, it will fail to establish positive relations with emerging regimes.

Bret Baier (Exclusively WSB)

Before moving to his post at the White House, Bret Baier was based at the Pentagon where he covered the military and intelligence communities. In those five years, Baier traveled to Iraq 12 times and to Afghanistan 11 times, giving him a one-of-a-kind perspective on the U.S.-led war on terror. With gripping stories from those trips and inspiring tales from his experiences with American troops on the frontlines, Baier is one of the only reporters in Washington with the ability to speak from first-hand experiences in war zones while conveying an insider’s knowledge of the high-stakes politics of war.

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.
