Celebrated by many as “Mayor of the World,” Rudy Giuliani provides a resolute voice in tackling the toughest domestic and international issues of our time—from long-standing global conflicts to terrorism and the new reality of cyber warfare to the future of health care reform and immigration to political leadership and insights on future elections.

Never one to shy away from a battle, Giuliani almost single-handedly took on organized and white-collar crime in New York with a remarkable record of 4,000 convictions—one that very few attorneys can match. Ushering in a new era of fiscal responsibility and broad-based growth, he turned an inherited $2.3 billion budget deficit into a multibillion-dollar surplus and added a record 450,000 new private sector jobs. Recognized by Consulting magazine as “Consultant of the Year,” Giuliani Partners is a leader in strategic consulting and emergency preparedness. Offering a dynamic and lively presentation accompanied by Q&A, Giuliani reminds audiences that eternal vigilance and leadership are required to protect freedom.

Principled Leadership: In the Face of Change and Crisis

As Rudy Giuliani began his first mayoral term, he inherited New York City awash with violence, a crumbling infrastructure and residential flight to the suburbs. A TIME magazine cover story summed up the conditions as “The Rotting of the Big Apple.” Ten years later, TIME put New York City on its cover again, but this time, with thanks in large part to Giuliani, the magazine revisited its assessment of the city—touting it as America’s safest city where economic development thrived and families flocked to live. Just when New Yorkers were beginning to enjoy the city’s revitalization, the unimaginable hit on 9-11. Giuliani swiftly marshaled his remarkable leadership skills to pull his city, and perhaps the entire nation, through the crisis. It was no accident that Giuliani was able to accomplish miracles during those grim days.

Recent geopolitical events are quickly becoming serious areas of concern to corporations as the risks to global security increase with potential repercussions in the critical areas of information sharing, cyber security and crisis management. Rudy Giuliani invokes his experience in the 9-11 attacks’ aftermath to make a compelling case regarding the importance of creating a national “determination and will to continue the war on terrorism.” A leader in strategic consulting, emergency preparedness and fiscal responsibility, Giuliani cites specific and relevant examples from his work as a partner in the international law firm Bracewell & Giuliani and leaves audiences with a stark reminder of how doing business in an ever-shrinking world has new challenges that can and must be surmounted.

The National Health-Care Debate and the Need for Resolute Leadership

Even though health-care reform passed through Congress and has been signed into law, a public policy debate still rages on as to whether this is the right piece of legislation to fix century-old issues. As mayor of one of America’s largest cities,Rudy Giuliani developed a comprehensive model to promote enrollment in public health programs. As a presidential candidate, he advocated development of a national tax-free health savings account. And, at Giuliani Partners, companies have sought his expertise to tackle a range of health-care projects including the need to combat the national epidemic of prescription drug abuse. A solution to the crisis will require the combined efforts of the health-care community and federal and state officials.

  • His views on the Affordable Care Act
  • Insight on how seemingly insurmountable challenges, such as health care, can be overcome with effective leadership
  • An overview of the steps the health-care community and the nation’s elected representatives must take to help alleviate our health-care challenges
