Audiences will receive actionable takeaways on critical business topics including where to find the best opportunities for growing domestically and abroad, and how to mitigate risk in the face of increasing threats.
Daniel Benjamin, Former Head of the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau:
Regarded as today’s preeminent “go to” expert on the world’s terrorism trends, Ambassador Daniel Benjamin is teaching businesses how to react more effectively and expeditiously to global threats. By analyzing the current state of global security alongside the direction of U.S. foreign policy, Benjamin helps organizations identify potential vulnerabilities and stay one step ahead of the many dangers – both seen and unseen – seeking to undermine their stability. Currently the Norman E. McCulloch Jr. Director of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, Benjamin’s dynamic presentations offer an inside look into what drives global instability, providing valuable insight on how to assess and interpret global risk, understand the impact of threats and foresee what trends are likely to emerge in the future.
Seth Harris, Former Acting U.S. Secretary of Labor and Deputy U.S. Secretary of Labor:
Under Seth Harris’ leadership, the Labor Department was recognized as the Federal government’s leader in evidence-based, data-driven performance management and measurement. Now Harris is teaching businesses how to develop innovative, industry-specific systems for managing and improving their own performance. In addition, he is renowned for his ability to help companies navigate the future of America’s economy and evolving workforce, explaining how to prepare for the shift to a more information-driven economy and showing the impact that future workplace regulations will have on businesses. Currently a Distinguished Scholar at Cornell University’s School of Industrial & Labor Relations, Harris is a gifted teacher who continues to set the bar in identifying the bold strategies that enable companies to achieve and maintain strong growth.
Francisco Sanchez, Former U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade:
One of the architects of President Obama’s National Export Initiative, Francisco Sánchez oversaw the advancement of U.S. trade policies and administered U.S. trade laws that fostered a dramatic increase in U.S. exports. A renowned expert on the opportunities and pitfalls of foreign trade, he is skilled at teaching businesses how to be competitive globally and improve their negotiation strategies with foreign companies, especially in the growth areas of Asia, Africa and Latin America. In addition, through his position as a Senior Managing Director at Pt. Capital, a private equity fund focused on the Arctic, Sánchez has become one of the key advisors for organizations seeking to take advantage of the many opportunities in what is being hailed as “the next big frontier for economic growth.” A highly-engaging speaker, Sanchez’s prolific knowledge and experience have made him an in-demand presenter for both large and mid-size corporations seeking to grow and compete on a global scale.
