One of America’s most successful public-sector executives and one of the most outspoken voices for integrity in public-service leadership, former governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal draws on an exceptional career and will engage in wide-ranging discussion on critical issues impacting businesses and the future of our country. His presentations are customized for each audience. Jindal examines issues and shares keen insight on topics such as:

  • The future of America
  • How leaders can swiftly and effectively implement change and lead others with strength through times of crisis
  • The national energy crisis, resources and proposed policy solutions
  • Bold and innovative health care policy reform solutions
  • Religious liberty and personal, inspiring stories around his own spiritual journey from Hinduism to Christianity

Recognized as one of the boldest innovators in the health care sector, Bobby Jindal addresses the dramatic and chaotic changes taking place in the U.S. and around the world as costs continue to rise and complex systems no longer permit fragmented care. This chaotic environment will continue to evolve if and when the Affordable Care Act is repealed and replaced. In this enlightening presentation, Jindal shares his experience from a career serving others in both the private and public sectors and addresses the necessity of moving away from a “one-size-fits-all” health care system to one that empowers patients, lowers costs, and allows for increasing flexibility, customized benefits, and premium sharing. Jindal explains how he managed change in the face of major disruption caused by the implementation and maintenance of the ACA, and identifies innovative methods your audience can adopt to implement impactful change.

Raised in a Hindu household by Indian immigrants, Bobby Jindal takes his audience on an inspiring journey, speaking openly about his decision to convert to Christianity and his eventual baptism into the Roman Catholic Church as a teenager. From the exact moment God felt tangible to Jindal, to the fear he had about breaking the news to his family, he shares with audiences the role that faith and family values have played throughout his life—how they have kept him grounded both personally and professionally—and addresses the war on religious liberty confronting the United States today. Unveiling the emotional and intellectual struggles of his spiritual journey from Hinduism to Christianity, Jindal offers an authentic perspective, looks to the future, and shares stories about the ways in which he remains active in the faith community.

Education is the great equalizer, which is why the era of Civil Rights legislation began in earnest with Brown v. Board of Education. In the march toward equality, social justice and educational access must walk hand-in-hand in order to ensure a brighter future for all our children. Yet, economic and cultural barriers remain formidable obstacles for many minorities seeking to fulfill their academic potential and pursue the American Dream. These students need both knowledge and role models—education and inspiration—to succeed.

Ms. Rice will share how the history of Johnson Publishing Company, since its founding in 1942, has built partnerships between business, government and academia in order to expand access to education for minority scholars and widen the circle of opportunity for Americans of color.

When Ms. Rice’s father founded Johnson Publishing Company in 1942 thanks to a $500 loan, he sought to create an equivalent magazine to Life that would tell the story of the black experience in America. Over the next 75 years, in both vivid prose as well as indelible pictures, the pages of Ebony and Jet captured the stories of African-Americans, from the famous to the family next door. 

Ms. Rice will tell the story of how JPC helped shape the Civil Rights movement by informing and inspiring its audience, a mission which continues to reach millions of readers each month. Her speech will be punctuated by material from the company’s invaluable media archives – a treasure house of more than six decades worth of iconic cultural treasures, including feature interviews, photo profiles and performances from celebrities, newsmakers and famous Black Americans in the sciences, business, sports, politics, culture, civil rights, education, medicine, and more. Ms. Rice’s presentation tells a comprehensive and compelling story of America, its past and its present.

As Chairman of Johnson Publishing Company (JPC), the largest African-American owned publishing firm in the United States, Linda Johnson Rice will take us through the choices she made to implement bold changes at her iconic company during a pivotal moment in its history. Learn how Rice made the critical business decisions to transition from CEO to Chairman, hire female senior
executive talent, and navigate the changing media landscape to maintain relevancy and market share. Leave the meeting inspired to embrace change in your professional life!

For many young people – especially young women – examples of large accomplishments are ubiquitous in popular culture. Yet, examples of how to reach them are not. Linda’s mother and father reached the heights of success and became examples of African American achievement for millions, especially to Linda as a young girl. More importantly, however, they gave her concrete examples of the hard work and the many middle steps it takes to reach such success. They set her on a journey to college and graduate school, and taught her to work her way up from the smallest jobs within the family company to ones of increasing responsibility and importance. Linda shares her story for younger audiences, particularly those in high school, about how to find the mentors that guide the way to success. And she encourages young people to earn the hard-won qualities necessary to realize their full potential. It is a story meant for strivers of all ages, and an inspirational message for everyone who dreams big and dares to try.
