Jarrett M. Adams was wrongfully convicted of sexual assault at age 17 and sentenced to 28 years in a maximum security prison. After serving nearly 10 years and filing multiple appeals, Jarrett was exonerated with the assistance of the Wisconsin Innocence Project. Going from inmate to exoneree to law student to attorney with the Innocence Project, Jarrett has a unique perspective to share on over coming adversity and criminal justice reform. A thought-leader in those areas, Jarrett continuously contributes to the ongoing discussion around prison reform and wrongful conviction. His story of incarceration, exoneration and redemption has been featured widely in the media, and he has become a sought-after motivational speaker for athletes, students, inmates, attorneys and others.

As a current Senior Advisor to a new $2bn global impact fund, Alexander provides experienced insight into macroeconomic changes and the business potential of developing responsible practices. As a former UK International Development Secretary and current advisor to U2 Frontman Bono, on investment and development in Africa, Alexander provides a depth of knowledge on securing ethical investment to tackle global poverty, the role of private equity, and Government involvement in enterprises across the continent. Having served at the UK Governor of the World Bank and UK Trade Minister, Alexander offers invaluable analysis of trends in global finance, cryptocurrency, and cybercrime helping businesses identify challenges and opportunities and describes how businesses and organizations can lead and succeed in the changing global economy.

Alexander discusses the global trendlines beneath today’s headlines that are shaping politics and economics in what many see as the Asian Century. Following nine years at the highest levels of Government in the UK - including as Minister for South and SouthEast Asia and as the UK’s Governor of the World Bank and a post politics academic and business career, Alexander offers a unique perspective on current global affairs and an understanding of the prevalence of authoritarian regimes in East-Asia. He offers an analysis of Asian markets and diplomatic relationships across the region, with a specific focus on China's push to take a larger role in global affairs through the One Belt One Road Initiative. Alexander explains how increased connectivity and cooperation between China, the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt, the oceangoing Maritime Silk Road and Eurasian countries provides important opportunities for growth and partnership in business across the globe.

A combination of economic anger, cultural anxiety, and political alienation is changing our societies, impacting our economies, and altering our politics. Alexander explains how these factors, combined with the advent of social media, have given rise to populist movements across the West; resulting in the election of President Trump in the USA and the UK's decision to leave the European Union. Alexander discusses the implications of a Trump administration on the West’s economic partnerships and security alliances. With both the transatlantic relationship and European unity at risk, Alexander explores how the West is confronting the new authoritarianism from Asia in the East to Europe’s borders in the West. Utilizing his experience as former UK Europe Minister and Minister for South and South East Asia, together with his ongoing work with the Future of Diplomacy program at Harvard Kennedy School, Alexander offers an analysis of the impact of Britain’s Brexit on business in terms of trade, investment, regulation, and the relocation of financial and other EU institutions from London to other European cities and what this means for long term economic growth and diplomatic relations across the West.

Kelly Ayotte (Exclusively WSB)

Health-care reform remains at the forefront of issues with the largest impact on most Americans, particularly in light of the pending repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act. President Trump has also promised extensive tax and financial industry reforms, with expected changes in both the tax code and regulatory environment. Businesses and organizations of every size are wondering what the future of these vital issues will mean for them. Kelly Ayotte draws on her extensive experience working in the Senate to explain what businesses and health-care providers should know.

José María Aznar (Exclusively WSB)

What are the qualities of a great leader? How does one lead people where they might not want to go? José María Aznar knows. The prime minister of Spain from 1996 to 2004, Aznar led his country out of years of decline by instituting reforms that, though initially resisted, led to an economic and cultural revival. In addition, he held firm in his resistance to terror and his support for the U.S., even when polls indicated he do otherwise. Now Aznar shares his ideas about leadership on the world stage about the responsibilities and attributes of leaders, and how they can change their people, organizations and countries for the better.

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)

As the anchor of FOX News' Special Report w/Bret Baier, Bret Baier is plugged into all of the major issues and players on the national political scene. With humor and insight, Baier shares with audiences’ exclusive, poignant and an up-to-the minute analysis on what’s going on at the White House and on Capitol Hill.

Fred Barnes (Exclusively WSB)

Fred Barnes' presentation offers an insider’s look at the presidency and Congress. With over 25 years of reporting on Washington politics, his analysis and predictions are among the most on-target of anyone covering Washington. Barnes takes a hard look at the impact of a Republican-controlled Congress and what issues are front of mind for the American electorate.
