Jeb Bush (Exclusively WSB)

Jeb Bush’s passion for big ideas and his definition of leadership—being an advocate for big ideas that require big changes—led to sweeping reforms in Florida while he was Governor.

Delivering candid and informative remarks, he applies his visionary understanding of the issues to share his perspective on the current state of world affairs. From health care and the economy to foreign policy and immigration, to civilized exploration of policy reform, Bush engages audiences with a unique outlook on a variety of the most prominent issues on the minds of Americans.

Steven Chu (Exclusively WSB)

Developing efficient, affordable alternatives that serve to decrease the use of fossil fuels, minimize the dependence on foreign oil, create jobs and mitigate environmental concerns around the globe is a critical component of renewable energy research and technology. Steven Chu—recent U.S. Secretary of Energy, Nobel Prize-winning physicist and esteemed university professor—discusses with audiences the current state of clean energy, including the numerous cutting-edge advances that have been made over the course of the last four years and the myriad of government-industry partnerships that have been established, providing America’s innovators and entrepreneurs with a competitive edge in the global arena. In a dynamic and uniquely accessible fashion, Chu discusses the roles and responsibilities of government and industry in clean energy development and implementation, the transformative and positive impact of renewable resource advances on job growth, independence and prosperity and why and how renewable energy will give us, the U.S., an new set of economic opportunities. Chu also explores the development of specific business models that can best seize the economic opportunities, both domestically and around the world, in the transition to sustainable energy.

Mitch Daniels (Exclusively WSB)

With over 40 years of successful economic stewardship in the private and public sectors, Mitch Daniels—the highly regarded two-term governor of Indiana and former director of the Office of Management and Budget—examines the fiscal and economic reforms needed to revitalize the ailing financial system, refuel optimism, address debt and deficit reduction and successfully navigate the tides of a rapidly evolving world. Daniels provides audiences with a candid, multidimensional, solution-oriented perspective stressing the importance of innovation and fostering growth while offering thought-provoking dialogue about the implications of chronic deficit and even more intrusive and expansive government for democratic institutions.

Christopher Dodd (Exclusively WSB)

Having led a wide-ranging, tireless and effective 36-year career, Chris Dodd speaks with authority on issues of vital importance to America’s future. As the author of some of the most significant pieces of legislation to be enacted over the last quarter century, Dodd discusses the impact that Washington will have on business, the economy, foreign policy and many other issues. Topic areas include:

  • Business, the Economy and Washington: A Look at Dodd-Frank’s Impact on America
  • Health Care Reform: The Effects on the Business and Consumer Landscape
  • Consumer Credit: Reform in the Age of Plastic
  • The Future of Latin America: Opportunities and Challenges for U.S. Policy in the Hemisphere
  • A Family Affair: The Impact of FMLA and Washington’s Role in Helping Families

Mickey Edwards has been a part of—and a student of—America’s political system, first from the outside, as a partisan party leader and conservative political activist; then, from deep within the system itself, as a senior member of Congress, a member of the congressional leadership and an advisor to Presidents, and then from the outside again, as an award-winning lecturer at Harvard and Princeton, a political columnist and broadcaster, and a mentor to a new generation of public officeholders. It has been a unique vantage point, one matched by no other observer of American politics, and that combination of perspectives has led to a series of breathtaking proposals not to replace one party with another, or replace some officials with others, but to change the entire political system from top to bottom, creating a system that recaptures what America’s founders intended: a government in which the voice of the people is actually heard; a system in which, within the bounds of the Constitution, the people themselves control the levers of government.

What Edwards proposes is a far-reaching change in how campaigns are funded, eradicating the ability of political insiders to limit voters’ choices by controlling who can be on the ballot, and depriving parties of the right to shape congressional districts for their own advantage, undermining the Founders’ vision of truly representative government.

Edwards’ proposals have stirred a national political movement through his book, The Parties Versus the People: How to Turn Republicans and Democrats into Americans, a movement that has been fueled by groundbreaking articles in The Atlantic, Daedalus, The New York Times, and other major publications. As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote in an editorial: “The man widely credited with helping the open primary proposal gain steam nationally is former Rep. Mickey Edwards ... who advocated for both redistricting and primary reform in his 2012 book ... This should be Missouri’s future ... Neither major political party likes these ideas. Why? It takes the primaries out of their hands and puts the power where it belongs, with the people.”  

Edwards’ arguments have changed the national debate about the extreme control political parties exercise over our political system—arguments heard on television broadcasts as diverse as Charlie Rose, the PBS NewsHour and Bill Moyers, and on outlets ranging from CNN and NPR to MSNBC and Al Jazeera, and before audiences ranging from the American Academy of Arts and Sciences to trade associations and from labor unions to college campuses.  

Fierce, articulate and nonpartisan in his judgments, Mickey Edwards is one of the nation’s best-known defenders of the Constitution, protesting unconstitutional expansions of federal and presidential power (regardless of which political party is guilty), criticizing practices by police and prosecutors that limit a citizen’s access to justice, and arguing against federal and local government targeting of American citizens with far-reaching surveillance activities. A board member of both The Constitution Project and the Project on Government Oversight and co-chair of a task force on privacy and security, he played a central role in an MSNBC special debating the NSA’s surveillance programs, was part of a select American Bar Association task force investigating presidential claims of the authority to bypass federal law, a key member of the American Society for International Law’s task force on limits to the authority of the International Criminal Court and co-chairman of a high-level Constitution Project task force on the war power. As a member of Congress for 16 years, he fought vigorously against well-intended reforms that violated fundamental tenets of the Constitution and pressed his congressional colleagues to meet the responsibilities the Constitution had placed on them. 

A former professor at Harvard, Princeton, Georgetown and the University of Maryland Law School, Edwards has defended the Constitution at law schools, public policy schools and at public events in every part of the country and in dozens of newspaper and magazine articles. 

Jon Favreau (Exclusively WSB)

As chief speechwriter and senior aide to Barack Obama during the 2008 and 2012 elections, Jon Favreau has been at the center of the storm for two successful presidential campaigns. As a political columnist for The Ringer and co-host of Keepin’ It 1600, one of America’s most popular podcasts, he draws on his unique perspective to cut through the noise and focus on the issues, messages and moments that had the biggest impact on the 2016 election. Favreau offers insights into Donald Trump’s rise, Hillary Clinton’s challenges, and the effects of the media and the national mood following one of the most unusual races in history.

Since the Sons of Liberty threw casks of tea into the Boston Harbor, taxation has been a hot topic for Americans. President Obama has promised to pursue a very specific approach regarding tax policies based on advice from a litany of renowned experts with substantial economic experience. So, what will the president’s plan mean for you, your organization and the country? Martin Feldstein, who has been called one of the ten best economists in the world and stands as an economic research pioneer. In this compelling presentation, he reviews:

  • What initiatives are likely to produce jobs, increase wages and investment in business
  • How tax policy may impact healthcare
  • Fact versus fiction in the tax debate

Savvy economists saw it coming. The bubble in the housing prices, high loan to value ratio for millions of homeowners and the manner in which mortgages were securitized was not a formula for long-term economic success. The result was household wealth degradation and destruction of capital financial institutions that hold mortgages and mortgage-backed securities. While the country hopes that recent financial rescue plans will bring back the confidence needed to revive the financial system, has the root of the problem been addressed and where do we go from here? In this revealing presentation customized for your organization from one of the world’s leading economists, Martin Feldstein, the George F. Baker Professor of Economics at Harvard University, shares:

  • Insights into the current, and complex, economic dynamics
  • What results we can expect from recent congressional and federal government initiatives
  • What initiatives will get the economy back on track
