Leadership matters more today than ever before. Traits traditionally associated with femininity, such as empathy, collaboration and passion, are essential in today’s changing business environment. Shelley Zalis, CEO, The Female Quotient, will share:

  • A time when she was told there was no room for emotions in the boardroom, why she didn’t listen to that advice, and how it helped her to build and sell an $83 million online research business
  • How men and women can cultivate their own feminine leadership strengths
  • Why doing so will boost your impact as a leader—and your company’s bottom line

Political risk is everywhere, affecting businesses of all sizes and industries. A low budget documentary goes viral, sinking SeaWorld stock. A Manila Mayor’s well intended traffic ordinance ends up disrupting port operations and creating Toyota backlogs across Asia. An airline passenger armed with a cell phone captures United Airlines’ worst passenger moment, reaching 100 million viewers in China. North Korea wages a cyber attack on Sony Pictures, sending the studio off the grid and causing an international crisis. In the old days, political risk involved a handful of industries who worried mostly about whether dictators would seize their assets. Now political risk is everyone’s business—and it includes cyber threats, social media activism, terrorism, and more. Based on a course Zegart co-teaches with Condoleezza Rice at Stanford Business School, this talk examines the mega trends in business, politics, and technology that are supercharging political risk, the top 10 political risks that businesses confront, and what executives can do so they aren’t blindsided.

Cyber threats are growing more prevalent and scary, from Russian hacking in the 2016 American presidential election to the massive theft of corporate intellectual property to the growing danger of cyber acts of mass disruption. Today, there are only two kinds of companies: those who have been hacked and those who just don’t know it yet. How can policymakers, business leaders, and the rest of us make sense of this evolving landscape? Who are the most serious cyber bad actors? Is deterrence ever possible in cyberspace? These are some the questions we explore, with a walk through we should know, what we do know, and what we don't know about digital dangers.

We all know that spies in the movies are different than spies in real life. But how different? And does it really matter? This talk examines the top five myths about espionage and examines how the rise of “Spytainment” is influencing real policy, from Supreme Court arguments to congressional hearings to the use of interrogation techniques.
