Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

The biggest threat to America's security and prosperity comes not from abroad but from within. In this provocative and thought-provoking presentation modeled after his book, Foreign Policy Begins at Home: The Case for Putting America's House in Order, Haass describes how the biggest threat to the United States comes from its burgeoning deficit and debt, crumbling infrastructure, second class schools and an outdated immigration system. The result is a country less competitive and more vulnerable than it should be on the global stage. He proposes a new foreign policy of Restoration. At home, it would concentrate on restoring the economic foundations of American power. Overseas, it would stop trying to remake the Middle East with military force as was tried unsuccessfully in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Instead, it would emphasize maintaining the balance of power in Asia, promoting economic integration and energy self-sufficiency in North America, and narrowing the gap between global challenges and global arrangements. Adopting Restoration will ensure the United States has the resources it needs to lead the world, set an example other societies will want to emulate, reduce the country’s vulnerability to hostile forces and fickle markets, and discourage would-be adversaries from mounting aggression. It will require hard choices, but hard choices are called for. At stake is nothing less than America’s future and the character of the coming era of history.

Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. The rules, policies, and institutions that have guided the world since World War II have largely run their course. Respect for sovereignty alone cannot uphold order in an age defined by global challenges from terrorism and the spread of nuclear weapons to climate change and cyberspace. In this thought-provoking presentation rich in history and modeled after his book, A World in Disarray: American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order, Haass describes the current world, along with how we got here and what needs doing. Haass shows that the world cannot have stability or prosperity without the United States and explains what the United States and the Trump administration need to do at home so that it can continue to act and lead effectively in the world.

Stephen Hayes (Exclusively WSB)

The relationship between the White House and the news media has always been complex, and in recent years it has come under increased scrutiny. With the political divide muddying the waters and the public’s trust in the mainstream press diminishing, what responsibility does the media have and what can they do to reestablish credibility? As a veteran reporter who has spent his career covering government and politics from the inside, Stephen Hayes understands the powerful role the media plays in a democracy, and shares his trenchant analysis of how journalists can navigate a contentious relationship with an adversarial administration and a skeptical public.

Stephen Hayes (Exclusively WSB)

With 2016’s populist surge resulting in a "change" election, what should organizations expect under the Trump Administration moving forward? Should the Democrats gain control of Congress in 2018, what will be the ramifications of a divided government? What does the future hold for the Republican and Democratic parties? Stephen Hayes answers these questions and more with the detailed knowledge of a political scientist and the on-the-trail experience of a veteran campaign reporter. His presentation provides an up-to-the-minute report on the issues and players of the political system, offering powerful analysis of the Trump Administration’s policies and how Congress and the electorate are adjusting to an unconventional president in the White House.

Stephen Hayes (Exclusively WSB)

The national security landscape has shifted dramatically, and a populist surge both in the U.S. and globally has affected the nature of international alliances. What is the legacy of the Obama Administration's "smart diplomacy” in a time when ISIS surged and the Arab spring roiled a troubled region? With old adversaries presenting new complications and terrorist attacks continuing to affect Europe and the Middle East, what can we expect from the Trump Administration, and what new challenges lie ahead? With the keen eye of a reporter who has filed stories from Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and numerous European capitals, Stephen Hayes brings knowledge and experience to his presentation on international affairs and U.S. national security.

Hugh Hewitt (Exclusively WSB)

How is polarization making it harder to be an American President? What is the media’s role in electing a President? What is happening to the culture in Washington? Should people be afraid? What do you need to do to get things done? Why are what were once highly regarded institutions being swallowed up and collapsing right in front of us? Widely acclaimed talk radio host Hugh Hewitt brings an extensive background in government and politics to offer a thoughtful and stimulating analysis of these hard-hitting questions. As the landscape and environment of journalism and the media have undergone extraordinary change and transformation, Hewitt explores many of the modern paradigms of reportage and the impacts of perpetuated bias and lack of transparency in the media. He also takes an in-depth look at the longstanding social and political impacts of modern journalism on our society today.

Hugh Hewitt (Exclusively WSB)

A professor of law for over 20 years, Hugh Hewitt has additionally clerked on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, served as the assistant counsel in the White House and was general counsel of two federal agencies. Bringing a wealth of experience and expertise, Hewitt provides unique insight into the courts and where they are heading. He answers the questions that are most pertinent to your audience in this engaging and highly informative conversation.

Over the last two decades, dynamic, integrated supply chains have developed across North America tightly linking the three major economies in ways that are mutually beneficial. America’s original NAFTA negotiator explains how our collaboration has made the region the most competitive in the world. We don’t simply sell to each other, we make things together. Forty percent of what the United States imports from Mexico consists of U.S. content, and 25 percent of imports from Canada contain U.S. content. It is in our national interest to build on the vibrant commercial connections that have developed over the past two decades – and an updated NAFTA is critical to that effort. The former U.S. Trade Representative shares the winning recipe on how to move ahead with the issues that will make a positive difference for businesses, large and small, make workers more secure, and build on a vital North American partnership.

A strong U.S.-China relationship is essential to domestic and global prosperity and security. Yet, mutual mistrust between the two nations threatens to undermine cooperation between the world’s two largest economies. Both countries face considerable economic and political uncertainties. China’s reform efforts have slowed, while the role of the state has increased in recent years. Against this challenging backdrop, one of the leading public voices on U.S.-China commercial relations and doing business in China offers her insights on how to work collaboratively and get results in the world’s largest market.
