Douglas Alexander discusses how the oldest alliance is coming under unprecedented strain and the impact for security prosperity and the future of the West.

Nick Bostrom invites a discussion with the audience to explore any of a wide range of topics concerning the big picture for humanity, technological trends, risks, and future prospects for civilization. This format gives the audience the opportunity to interact with a commanding mind which has been researching and thinking about these topics for two decades. As the founding director of Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute, Professor Bostrom leads a research group of about twenty mathematicians, computers scientists, philosophers, and engineers, doing serious research in an area that traditionally has been dominated by inspirational speakers and "business futurists”. The effect on the audience is an expansion of cognitive horizons and simple intellectual delight: people will be thinking and talking afterwards. 

Sarah Brown (Exclusively WSB)

Acknowledging the dire need to help impoverished nations, in 2001 the United Nations adopted the Millennium Development Goals to create long-lasting change around the rights of each person on the planet to health, education, shelter and security. As a leader intimately involved with these efforts from her role on the front lines of the struggle to create a more just world—particularly when it comes to issues of health equity and women’s health, Sarah Brown is a compelling voice in the global campaign to end injustice, poverty and inequality. In her keynote presentations, Brown highlights the progress that has been made—and the opportunities to do good that still exist. Brown’s words inspire action in identifying and empowering those around the globe to extend help to those most in need.

Barbara Pierce Bush (Exclusively WSB)

Having traveled through Africa extensively and seen some of the world’s health problems firsthand, Barbara Bush was inspired to make a difference and harness the passion, energy and skills of her generation to overcome malaria, HIV/AIDS and the other epidemics of our time. The difference that Bush made was founding the Global Health Corps, an organization that places fellows around the world to bring change to regions of the world that need it most. Bush’s vision has allowed for young leaders—whether their skill set is in finance, supply chain management or other fields atypical in the fight against disease and poverty—to bring their experience to bear in delivering health solutions to those who do not always have ready access to quality care. In this powerful address, Bush talks about her entrepreneurial experience in starting the Global Health Corps and the experiences of those who are also on the front lines in delivering care to those in need. An inspiring young leader, Bush shows how everyone has the ability to give back—not only on the global stage but in their own communities as well.

Barbara Pierce Bush (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.

Jeb Bush (Exclusively WSB)

Jeb Bush’s passion for big ideas and his definition of leadership—being an advocate for big ideas that require big changes—led to sweeping reforms in Florida while he was Governor. At the heart of his success was his ability to inspire citizens, businesspeople and policy makers to embrace change as the only way to take charge of the future. Delivering candid and informative remarks, he applies his visionary understanding of the issues to share his perspective on the current state of world affairs. From health care and the economy to foreign policy and immigration, to civilized exploration of policy reform, Bush engages audiences with a unique outlook on a variety of the most prominent issues on the minds of Americans.

Dr. Zubin Damania (ZDoggMD) explores the challenges of delivering compassionate health care in our severely dysfunctional medical system, while proposing collaborative ways to revitalize it. He uses humor and personal storytelling to paint an arc that begins with the idealism that first draws us into our careers and life paths, followed by the disillusionment that results when we meet a system fundamentally discordant with those hopes and dreams.

Dentzer speaks on a wide variety of topics in health care arena including the impact and future of the Affordable Care Act, rising health care costs; aging; breakthroughs in treatment and research; health insurance issues; health policy issues such as Medicare reform, the uninsured, and prescription drug coverage.

In her 7 years as a senior leader at CDC, Dr. Gerberding was at the helm of the public health response to more than 40 domestic or international emergencies. Beginning with the terrorist and anthrax attacks in 2001, her tenure encompassed complex outbreaks and crises (including SARS, monkey pox, avian influenza, staphylococcal infections, and numerous food safety issues) as well as natural disasters (like the Asian tsunami, hurricanes, floods, power outages, and similar threats to health). Each of these events had far-reaching social, health, economic, and sometimes national security consequences. Dr. Gerberding makes a strong case that now is not the time for complacency; changing climate, global financial crises, and the expanded population of vulnerable groups predispose people everywhere to ongoing global threats. Smart organization will prioritize steps to ensure their resilience and prepare for natural disasters, global infectious disease outbreaks, and other emergencies. Dr. Gerberding shares her assessment of current risks, the key lessons learned from previous emergency responses, and a short list of health protection priorities to help government agencies, business leaders, non-profit organizations, and families everywhere remain a resilient as possible, whatever new threat emerges.
