Straight Talking Speakers

These mavens of straight talk don’t mince words. They tell it like it is, speak truth to power, and say the hard things that need to be said — even if it challenges us or coaxes discomfort. With a commitment to integrity and directness, WSB’s straight-talking speakers know honesty is what’s needed to uncover problems and find actionable solutions. Their spirit of openness cuts through the fluff to help listeners seek the truth and find the courage to confront hard realities. Available for in-person or virtual events and meetings.
