Redemption can come from the most unlikely of places.

Under the impactful leadership of Mitch Landrieu, New Orleans has become one of the nation’s best comeback stories.  In the wake of one of the most destructive hurricanes, Landrieu supplied hope to a devastated city.

Resurrecting and restructuring the city meant reorganizing the budget and overhauling the entire government - from education, to healthcare, to the criminal justice system.

During Landrieu’s tenure as mayor, New Orleans morphed its public school system into a 100 percent charter school model, reimagined its public housing model, and made healthcare more accessible to all.

The New Orleans Police Department experienced sweeping reforms, and the implementation of NOLA for Life comprehensively reduced the murder rate in the city by nearly 20 percent.

Because of the policies and structures put in place by former mayor Mitch Landrieu, New Orleans thrives with a growing and diversifying economy.

In this inspiring presentation, Landrieu reveals to audiences how the people of NOLA had the ability to see beauty even when everything was lost after Hurricane Katrina.

As lieutenant governor of Louisiana, Mitch Landrieu led the state through Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.

With a resume that includes leading the city and state through Hurricanes Rita, Gustav, Ike, and Isaac, the BP oil spill, and a national recession, Landrieu knows what it takes to rebound from crises.

When he was sworn in as the 61st Mayor of New Orleans in May 2010, the recovery from Hurricane Katrina had stalled, the city teetered on bankruptcy and the New Orleans Police Department was under federal investigation.

Under Landrieu, New Orleans has become one of America’s great comeback stories.

By making public safety a top priority, Landrieu reformed the police department and implemented the cutting-edge murder-reduction strategy, NOLA for Life, which led to a nearly 20 percent decrease in the city’s murder rate.

He kick-started the recovery by fast-tracking over 100 projects and securing billions in federal funding for schools, hospitals, parks and recreation and critical infrastructure.

He brought sound fiscal management, balanced budgets and ethical contracting to City Hall, leading to the city’s highest-ever credit rating and over $8 billion in private development.

Landrieu believes government alone is not enough to repair the economy and that partnering with local business leaders paves the path to prosperity.  He brought this idea to life with the formation of New Orleans Business Alliance (NOLABA), the first public-private partnership of its kind in the city, and the Network for Economic Opportunity.  These organizations devote themselves to repositioning New Orleans as a hub for culture and commerce, lifting up small businesses, and connecting disadvantaged job seekers to opportunities in the workforce.  Since their inception, these organizations have helped to create 20,000 new jobs and opened more than 140 new businesses.

In this presentation, Landrieu reveals how his post-disaster leadership skills and business innovation insights helped pull his city through crisis and become more resilient. With his Southern wit and charm, he shares with audiences:

  • How clear command, control and communication can get you through any crisis
  • How his philosophy of “facilitate, link and leverage” brings people together to move forward
  • How public-private partnerships pave the path to prosperity
  • Why ethical leadership is good for business
  • Why the future of America runs through cities

 

Finding talented, hardworking employees who will uphold the standards of your company is difficult. Coach Larranaga shares his tried-and-true methods for recruiting players and assistant coaches and for creating an environment that keeps them on the job. Larranaga tells audiences about his 8 C’s—character, competitiveness, competence, consistency, cohesiveness, commitment, communication and confidence—which are the foundation for selecting a winning staff and team and developing a championship-caliber program. Audiences will learn:

  • How to develop a program that will elevate their organization’s performance to the highest level
  • Where to find talented employees
  • How to build a winning, dedicated staff

You can’t always predict external factors, but you can control your own behavior and attitude, Larranaga tells audiences. He shares the formula that has made him George Mason University’s most successful head coach, one that helped him transform the relatively unknown team into one of sports’ greatest success stories. An educator first, Larranaga uses real-life examples from tough calls he has made on and off the courts to prepare his athletes for the game of life. Audiences will leave inspired, entertained and energized as they learn:

  • How to transform challenges into motivational opportunities
  • How individual attitudes can transform outcomes
  • How lessons learned on the court translate to other aspects of life, including professional careers and family life

As one of the most diverse nations on earth, the United States has a unique potential to be the most innovative and how will we live together peacefully and productively? Can we find a way to make our multifaceted diversity an asset, economically and socially or will it continue to be our deepest and most painful source of conflict? Crossing The Thinnest Line argues passionately and persuasively for the possibility, power, purpose and payoff of embracing difference. The stakes for the conversation are high and getting higher. Already, 89% of the world's educated population is either female or minority. In less than a generation, the US will become minority majority. The world economy is global and interconnected. Embracing diversity has never been more imperative. With compelling data and powerful, personal stories, Lauren Leader-Chivee looks at challenges and solutions to immigration, education, business, media and politics and inspires us to rise to the challenge.

Over the last year, issues of conduct, culture and workplace equality have risen to become a global conversation of enormous proportions. As the old saying goes, never let a crisis go to waste. Given the impact social media has on the velocity of scandal, and the critical importance both economically and socially of safe, harassment free workplaces, what can businesses do to address both? The #MeToo moment is an unprecedented opportunity for businesses to make major strides toward greater equity and meritocracy but that takes a considered approach. In this talk, Lauren Leader-Chivee addresses how leaders can take a proactive approach to addressing these critical issues and as well as the potential backlash that already seems to be brewing.  It’s essential that every leader, no matter their level or gender, contribute to changing the status quo and this talk will explore in detail, specifically how that can be done.

Over the course of her 35-year career, Deborah has developed insights and lessons learned: from business and policy successes
and failures. Among them: “Establish goals and priorities, but be prepared to zig zag. At least 50 percent of effective communications is listening.” And “You can and should compromise on most things, but never integrity.” Her problem solving
approach—which she outlines with personal stories from business and government—includes: investigate, communicate, activate, and follow up.

For more than four years Leiter served at the heart of terrorism crisis management in the U.S. Government as the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center—the post-9/11 organization created to serve as the hub of intelligence and policy planning for the U.S. counterterrorism community. Over the course of two administrations, Leiter helped lead the U.S. Government’s efforts to respond to repeated crises and high-stakes events, such as al-Qaida’s failed attempt to bring a U.S. airliner down over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, a failed car bomb attack in Times Square, the tragic shooting at Ft. Hood, and the successful mission that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden. Through examples from these and other events, Leiter shows how principled, thoughtful, visionary, and energetic leadership can carry an organization through crises and—more importantly—can lead to improvements in mission effectiveness that might otherwise be impossible. Leiter’s lessons of motivating and focusing a workforce, working with critical partners and customers, and effecting change apply to a wide range of businesses and organizations well-beyond those involved in combating terrorism or involved in the national security enterprise.

Using her twenty year experience on live television and ten years of being a panel moderator at prestigious national and international conferences, Levi can moderate any panel dealing with geopolitics, history, feminism, religion, social and economic divides.
