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.

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.
