Where To Turn When The Political Climate Heats Up

Amy Walter speaks with aplomb about the electoral process, congressional culture, and the Washington political scene on the whole. Being a familiar presence across the media spectrum, her range of topics and expertise provides an engaging, compelling presentation that keeps audiences riveted. Walter discusses not only electoral politics, but also the politics of policy, Washington’s dysfunction, and the people and strategy behind why things are happening the way they are in Congress and the White House.

"Leading From Within" Leadership Breakfast

Brian Riggs, Principal, The Dialogue Shop

The Center for Creative Leadership identified "Guiding Change" as one of the top five challenges leaders face today. In this informative and energized session, Brian Riggs will discuss and share three proven, yet often overlooked, strategies to help today's leaders prepare to lead themselves and their teams through change.
