John Kerry (Exclusively WSB)

Looking beyond the uncertainty of today, John Kerry evokes optimism by challenging turbulent trends to provide audiences with an encouraging analysis of the current global political climate and a positive vision for the future. Drawing from a distinguished career as a veteran, public servant, and diplomat, Kerry discusses the continued need for commitment to effective diplomacy, negotiation and compromise in order to safeguard the future for generations to come. As a leader on the world stage and the face of U.S. diplomacy as the 68th Secretary of State, Kerry shares first-hand accounts from his tenure as secretary, discussing lessons learned from navigating some of the most important policy issues of our time, including:

  • Successfully halting Iran's progress toward acquiring a nuclear weapon
  • Creating opportunity and defining a new energy future through the Paris Agreement
  • Seeking to improve access to quality care for returning U.S. veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Contending with a resurgent Russia and capitalizing on China's quest for peer-competitor status

A relentless defender of diplomacy and one of the most effective statesmen in U.S. history, Kerry explains how to negotiate in times of crisis and be an agent of positive change in a rapidly transforming world. Providing a comprehensive look at global affairs, he offers audiences an uplifting outlook on the path to the future. 

Some of the biggest development projects in the USA are being paid for by foreign money, while Europe struggles to hold together as an economic and political bloc. The West has gone hat-in-hand to the emerging Eastern powers, looking for financial support at a time of high debt and extreme economic duress. From Turkey to the Arab world, eyes are turning east for guidance on where the future stands. With more than two decades of travelling across the globe interviewing some of the leading names in politics and business, Riz Khan has witnessed the transformation of the global market place to where countries such as China and India hold the key to the door of the 21st Century. As the author of Alwaleed: Businessman, Billionaire, Prince (2005) Khan witnessed firsthand the business relationship between the USA and its largest individual investor - a Royal Saudi entrepreneur, sitting in on meetings between Prince Alwaleed and former U.S. Presidents, captains of industry such as Steve Jobs, and a host of leading Western figures. As outsourcing of jobs and a lack of opportunities dominates the America's ailing economy, Riz Khan examines where the West has gone wrong... and the real opportunities being missed.

Sarah Kliff gives the audience an inside look at the topic she spends her time reporting on: Republicans’ plans to repeal and replace Obamacare. She is up-to-date on the latest twists and turns and walks her audience through where the Affordable Care Act is today, what works and what doesn’t, and how the different Republican plans stack up against it. Audiences will leave with a solid understanding of how Republicans want to change health care, and who their plans will benefit or hurt.

With hilarious personal stories alongside poignant findings from science and research, Sally takes audiences on a journey to understand why we divide against one another — and the harm it does to our culture, our businesses and ourselves.  And then points the way forward, giving audiences concrete steps for how they can combat hate and division in their own minds and in their lives.  

The antidote to unnecessary and unproductive conflict, Sally shares the secrets to finding connection and common ground — and helps every audience member take responsibility for their part in building a more kind and caring community. While still supporting people to hold onto their own opinions, Sally lifts up how we all have to be more than just our opinions and reflects on the common values we all share at a deeper level. In this moving talk, Sally also shares the concrete tools to help everyone in the audience learn how to nurture those connections.

Political correctness only gets us part of the way there. But what matters more isn't the words we use but the meaning we intend. And we all need to learn to be more generous speakers — and listeners. In this talk, Sally wades into the controversy around political correctness and defends the idea that we should all treat each other with respect, while pointing out why respect is deeper than words alone. Audience members on all sides of the issue will find something in this talk to make them cheer — and to make them thing.

Mort Kondracke gives an up-to-the-minute look at American politics and foreign policy.
