Ezra Klein gives audiences a candid discourse on today’s economic and political events and the impact that the lack of consensus and bipartisanship in Washington is having on the U.S. and many countries around the world that find themselves facing one of the most critical economic, social and business crises in decades. From health care reform, high unemployment, entitlement and Social Security reform to the lack of business growth, Klein leaves no area untouched in his presentations, using his trademark graphs as a backdrop he gives audiences a clear understanding of the issues facing us today.

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. As a Washington journalist since the early '60s, Mort's observations and amusing anecdotes have the weight of his considerable experience. He'll tell you what's going on in Washington, how the Obama Administration and Congress are doing and what it all means. On request he will address your organization's legislative prospects.

Mort Kondracke has a special interest and indepth knowledge about the condition of health care in the United States. He discusses why health care should remain at the top of the national agenda, while exploring: health policy, cost containment, Medicare prescription drugs and other issues that are relevant to your audience.

Wherever there is news, there is Ted Koppel. With journalistic experience spanning more than ten wars, including serving as an embedded correspondent role with the U.S. Army in Iraq, Koppel has made a career of daring to go where other people won’t and uncovering the untold stories. In a presentation as fresh as today’s headlines, Koppel trains his keen intellect on the stories people are talking about—from unrest in North Africa and the Middle East to the emergence of China and India to America and a nation facing an uncertain financial future. We live in perilous times of rapid change and there is no more experienced guide than Ted Koppel to help us make sense of it all.

Imagine a disastrous cyber catastrophe in which America’s infrastructure and power grid have been attacked; how would ordinary civilians survive? Based on his book, Lights Out, Ted Koppel will captivate your audience as he examines a strong, research-backed case for the tremendous likelihood of a devastating cyberattack on the United States, and explore issues surrounding the responsibility of our government. One of the most urgent, unique threats of our time, Koppel rings the alarm and addresses how shockingly unprepared the nation is to deal with the multitude of consequences that have the potential to arise.
