Political journalist and nonpartisan analyst Jonathan Martin shares with audiences an unparalleled view of today’s political landscape gathered during his day-to-day working relationships and uses his experience, quick wit and humor to decipher the ever-changing political terrain.

In this revealing and inspiring presentation, Former Chariman of the Jont Chiefs of Staff Gen. Dempsey (Ret.) and multiple New York Times bestselling author Ori Brafman will examine the twenty-first-century leadership landscape and show that only with radically inclusive leadership can organizations and nations produce optimum, affordable, and sustainable solutions.

Drawing on examples from business, academia, government, and the military, Dempsey and Brafman will show:
• How the fear of losing control in our fast-paced, complex, highly scrutinized environment is pushing us toward exclusion?exactly the wrong direction.
• Why leaders should develop an instinct for inclusion—the word “radical” emphasizes the urgency of doing so.
• The six principles for adopting an affordable, sustainable, and winning inclusive leadership style, tailored to your organization.
• The three leadership instincts every leader must adopt to ensure ongoing success in today’s world.

One of America’s best-loved political couples—James Carville and Mary Matalin—give audiences an enlightening and entertaining look at today’s most important political issues, the policies of the Trump Administration, and a behind-the-scenes look at politics inside Washington. Matalin and Carville are key players on the national political stage—they each have over 30 years of experience in politics and have individually worked for Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. They combine their unique experiences to provide audiences with a stimulating, candid, and provocative conversation from both sides of the political aisle.

Mary Matalin offers an exclusive, expert look inside the polarized world of politics in the 21st Century. With the 2016 election of President Donald Trump demonstrating that a global shift towards political populism is on the rise, she enlightens audiences on current events in Washington, what to expect from the Trump Administration, and the ambiguous outlook of the role of the media. Known for her humor and straightforward discussion of the day’s hottest political issues, Matalin provides audiences an expert perspective on approaching politics today.

As director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Obama and deputy OMB director under President Clinton, Sylvia Mathews Burwell was a widely respected bipartisan leader. She worked closely with a divided Congress to negotiate a two-year budget deal following the government shutdown of 2013 and navigate the complexities of a process that has real-world impacts for Americans. In this informative presentation, she shares with audiences:

  • An in-depth view into the federal budgeting process, and how the decisions made in Washington affect the lives—and budgets—of everyday businesses and individuals
  • An analysis of the role of the executive branch in creating and executing the federal budget, and how this process may play out under the current Administration and Congress

Razor-sharp intelligence and rapid-fire commentary on the American political condition are the hallmarks of Chris Matthews' presentation. His insight into U.S. politics and policies will make you laugh while educating you at the same time. Matthews offers an up-to-the-minute look at American politics, including his take on the Republican Congress and what it means for the Trump Administration.

In this timely discussion, Denis McDonough offers keen insight and analysis of the current geopolitical landscape, with special attention on national security and the threats raised by the increasing role of cyber warfare. Addressing how Russia, China, and other global hot spots fit into a shifting foreign policy landscape, McDonough explores America’s role as the world enters a new era in diplomacy, and the implications for businesses operating around the globe.

With astute insight to executive authority and the political process in Washington today, Denis McDonough explains the realities about what is possible—and not possible—for the Trump Administration and a Republican Congress to achieve. From infrastructure and taxes to health care and immigration, McDonough addresses the most important issues at stake for America.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the Russian Federation Michael McFaul takes audiences inside the crisis in Ukraine and the Russian presence in Crimea. He explains why and how this crisis occurred and analyzes the long-term security and economic implications of this new era in Russia’s relations with the West. What effect will the sanctions have? Should they be stronger? How do Russia’s
actions impact the ongoing war in Syria and the Iran nuclear agreement? How is this new era similar to and different from the Cold War? McFaul sheds light upon one of the greatest challenges to European—and global—stability in several decades, explaining not only the political implications but also the impact it could have on your business.

For the first time in modern American history, we are forced to operate without a guiding strategic concept such as the Cold War’s “Contain the Soviets.”  This at a time when American power is challenged and the number of issues before us is at an all-time high. This is a discussion of what it takes for the United States to maneuver and thrive — economically, politically, militarily — in this new world.
