After spending two decades in the NFL, Brett Favre achieved the highest of honors awarded to a teammate as well as a player when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. During his time on and off the field, Favre has accumulated a tremendous amount of knowledge about personal growth, change, adversity, and success. These unique insights help him today to support people as they progress in life and to shape conversations in the areas of leadership, faith, and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Favre aspires for audiences with whom he speaks to take away a sense of hope as he narrates his path to athletic and personal accomplishment and shares a few fun football anecdotes and memories to relive along the way.

When Jon Favreau—director of speechwriting for President Barack Obama (2009-2013)—joined the White House at age 27, he became the second-youngest chief speechwriter in United States history. Sharing illuminating anecdotes from a career spent working alongside the Commander in Chief on the two most pivotal presidential campaigns in recent history, in the West Wing and throughout the world, Favreau conveys his own life experiences, his aspirations to balance idealism with the reality of politics and insights to inspire others to consider public service and develop their skills as future leaders.

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.

Under 18% of top leadership positions across all sectors are held by women. Not because women aren’t qualified, but for many reasons deeply rooted in culturally learned behaviors and implicit biases held by both men and women. Research shows women and men often literally speak different languages, even though we’re all speaking English. Women typically use more words than men, for example, more adjectives, more body movements, less directness. And while men might (and often do) complain or “mansplain” about that language pattern, the truth is that when women do violate their gender stereotypes, they are treated poorly. Gloria Feldt speaks about the language of power and the language of leadership. Navigating your career path by learning the rules of the game, including how to speak the language of the group with more power does not mean being inauthentic, it means being smart, confident and intentional. Attendees will learn:

  • Why defining your terms is your most important leadership skill.
  • Ten specific skills for gender bilingual communication that can help you get ahead.
  • How to navigate the double-edged sword of female leadership (“he’s the boss,” “she’s bossy,” “he’s self-assured,” “she’s arrogant,” etc.) 
  • How to differentiate yourself by communicating your value in terms that can’t be misunderstood.

Carly Fiorina speaks on a wide variety of business, economic and political topics including:

  • Leadership and Change: It Starts with the People
  • Leading Organizational Transformation Through Innovation
  • Keeping America Competitive in the Global Economy
  • Insights on Today’s Political and Economic Landscapes

It often takes a crisis to create change in our lives. How can we create transformational change in the absence of crisis and unleash our true potential? In this inspiring keynote, Molly Fletcher shares stories from her experiences as one of the only female sports agents in the industry as well as lessons from some of the top athletes and coaches in the game. She outlines the five-step process to unleashing your potential and achieving peak performance.

Learn how to:

  • Move forward purposefully towards goals of your own making
  • Create lasting change and recover from adversity faster
  • Maximize your energy and execute against key priorities

 

Successful business development is rooted in relationships, and those who learn how to effectively cultivate relationships rise to the top. Working in an industry where there are actually more sports agents than athletes to represent, Molly Fletcher used the power of relationships as her differentiator. She shares her unique tactics that will help you build better and more productive relationships and transform the way you do business.   

Learn how to:

  • Take creative approaches towards new business opportunities
  • Differentiate yourself from the competition
  • Grow your business by tapping into existing relationships
  • Close the deal in any business development cycle

A trailblazer in the male-dominated sports industry, Molly Fletcher empowers women to carve out their own path for success. Her message inspires, using humor and personal stories of her own experiences to connect. Molly shows how you can find fulfillment without sacrificing personal or professional goals.

From transforming the culture and performance of a large Pentagon bureaucracy, to turning an idea into a high-impact non-profit, to starting a successful new business from scratch, Flournoy shares insights from her experience as a leader and entrepreneur in the public, non-profit and private sectors.  Drawing from more than 30 years working with Presidents and Cabinet members, CEOs and nonprofit leaders, Flournoy offers 10 lessons on how to lead change and create collaborative, high performance teams and organizations.

Every organization depends upon the performance of their people and their teams. There are few examples where this is more dramatically demonstrated than with the Blue Angels. John Foley draws upon his experience as Lead Solo of the Blue Angels to inspire audiences and show them how to achieve substantially higher levels of performance.

Foley demonstrates a simple, systematic, yet exciting approach for how to develop the clarity, focus, commitment, and trust that are necessary to achieve ever-higher levels of performance. He shows how to create buy-in and commitment for a team’s vision and goals, leading to clarity that drives execution decisions. He demonstrates how learning to focus prepares individuals for action and increases successful outcomes. In this insightful program, he emphasizes the development of trust and respect among team members as essential to execution, and demonstrates proven ways for teams to achieve deep levels of trust. He also explains a process that he believes is the primary key to continuous improvement and exceptional growth.

He drives home his message with dynamic videos of his adrenaline-pumping performance with the Blue Angels. His charismatic and enthusiastic presentations stimulate audiences emotionally and intellectually with a whole new perspective on their ability to excel. They leave the event not only transformed, but also with a set of concrete tools to immediately begin a high performance climb.
