Jenna Hager (Exclusively WSB)

United in their humanitarian missions and the spirit of service—as well as through their close family bond—Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager have found a shared purpose in giving voice to the disadvantaged while bringing to light stories of hope. Coming from a unique vantage point as the only twins to grow up in the White House as both grandchildren and children, Barbara and Jenna were inspired to live lives of meaning from an early age. Stemming from their travels to impoverished areas in Africa and Latin America, they have now made it their life’s calling to address the most pressing health, education and economic inequality issues of our time. Whether through Barbara’s creation of Global Health Corps or Jenna’s position as a Today correspondent and UNICEF chair, both women help spread the message that ideas put to action are the best kind. With their special brand of infectious warmth and kind humor—evidenced in their delightful back and forth banter during their presentations—this dynamic pair will ignite an audience’s passion to serve and inspire future young leaders to give back in their schools, local communities or abroad.

Charity: water believes in inspiring generosity. They focus on the positive, tell stories about opportunity and always emphasize the hope more than the need. They work with incredible local partners around the globe to implement the water projects they fund, and their Water Programs team spends about 30% of their time in the field managing projects, building relationships with local teams and reporting back results to donors. Every time a project is completed, charity: water proves it using photos and GPS coordinates on Google Maps.

Through the use of innovative technology, charity: water has also developed remote sensors to monitor the functionality of their water projects. With the help of local leaders and trained mechanics, charity: water is not only working to bring clean water to communities in need, but is making sure it keeps flowing at projects around the world for years to come. This is all made possible by a small group of private donors who pay charity: water’s operating costs, allowing 100% of donations made to clean water to fund water projects for people in need.

There are stories being crafted. There are stories being told. There are stories of authenticity and richness that engage our minds and imaginations. There are stories tired in their design and missing the mark of impact. What’s your story and how well do you tell it? The Once Upon a Time Project is a strategic platform based on two elements: crafting, the art of writing a true and meaningful story; and telling, the skill of telling your story and weaving its content towards impact. Your stories are already there, most of the time in plain sight. You need to capture them, to help us know and understand what you do, what value you bring, and how you’re different. This is story-based marketing.

Tony Hawk has always been known as a gadget geek, a social media pioneer, and an early adopter of technology. Some people still think he’s just a video game character. Find out how this legendary skateboarder embraced social media early on to great success and used the newest technology to take his brands and his charity work to new places. 

In the world of skateboarding, nothing is held in higher esteem than authenticity. So, how does the sport’s most famous face walk the fine line between authenticity and “selling out?” Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk walks the walk every day as he continues to be the face of the sport he loves, while managing his successful business empire and award winning charitable foundation.

Chip Heath (Exclusively WSB)

Some experiences are vastly more memorable and meaningful than others: A moment of extraordinary service that a customer can’t stop talking about. A moment of insight that helps a group of employees embrace a new vision. A moment of compassion that makes a patient’s burden feel lighter. Everywhere you look, people are trying to craft memorable experiences—from customer experiences to patient experiences. Leaders are working hard to boost employee engagement, student engagement, and parishioner engagement. But these discussions have been dominated by a focus on fixing problems (what Chip Heath calls “filling pits”), rather than creating memorable experiences (“raising peaks”). Yet Heath’s research suggests that it’s far more valuable to build peaks.

How do you build peaks for the people you care about? In this talk, drawing from his forthcoming book The Power of Moments, Heath will reveal the four elements that create defining moments. Armed with an understanding of these elements, we can be the authors of moments that spark delight, connection, and insight.

After years of streamlining and hunkering down to weather the crises, what companies now most need to do is pull their people together. Collaboration and innovation are vital skills in global business—but where do they come from? How do leading companies get the alignment, trust and energy they need to get their people to work well together? What are the impediments to, and habits of, creative collaborative teams?

Working across cultures, time zones and technology is logistically difficult but it’s usually the human factors that make it hard for companies to achieve their aims. Everyone talks about collaboration but few know how to do it, what it feels like or what organizational structures enable—or disable—it. What they all know is that if they can’t figure out how to do it will, others will.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • The meaning and characteristics of collective intelligence
  • The business case for collaboration
  • Incentives that make people pull together
  • What gets in the way of teamwork
  • How great leadership teams function

Big data, market research, social media: we can know more than ever and yet we keep missing the most important trends, information and trends. Why? What makes companies and individuals willfully blind?

Pulling together a century of psychological, industrial and economic research, Margaret Heffernan argues that willful blindness is the biggest risk most organizations face. But the good news is that those companies that confront the issue don’t just reduce their risk; they also make themselves inherently more creative and collaborative. It’s a twofer: when you see more, you can make more and risk less.

In this provocative presentation, you will learn:

  • What blinds companies to their risks
  • Why most employees don’t share their knowledge
  • How companies can kill creativity—or stoke it
  • The power of noticing and acting on what you see
  • How diversity can make companies smarter

Christie Hefner, an accomplished creative executive who has worked with iconic lifestyle brands like Playboy and Canyon Ranch, and now advises HATCHBEAUTY, is the first to admit that the term “brand” is not only overused, but also incorrectly used. United is an airline, but Virgin is a brand. Why? Hefner, who worked to develop the valuable intersection of credible health and wellness and spa pampering, or lifestyle, under the Canyon Ranch umbrella, is a bona fide brand guru. Whether a brand is top of mind in the market, or simply packs a powerful emotional punch, Hefner offers strategies to extend and leverage a brand so that it both adds to the brand bank and supports the appeal of the core brand. She charts the relationship of social media and brand management and explains the integral role branding plays in issues of corporate responsibility and trust. Calling on her varied experiences with intellectual property, reputation, risk and social responsibility, Hefner delivers a comprehensive guide to brand management that is as exciting for audiences to follow (Netflix vs. Amazon vs. Apple) as its strategies are easy to implement.
