    One of the 21st century’s most fervent purveyors of democratic values, General Colin Powell understands the power of diplomacy and the universal human ideal of democracy to build trust and transform once-unstable regions into areas where societies and cultures prosper. As well, he understands that the power of persuasion, reason and building trust are immeasurably effective in getting governments to cooperate for the overall common good of their people and the rest of the world. In a compelling presentation filled with humor and anecdotes from years of service at the highest levels of international affairs, Powell, former U.S. secretary of state, describes the delicate process of forging alliances, bringing people and countries together and promoting universal human ideals of democracy and peace around the world.

    View Speech Info

    One of the most admired men in America, General Colin Powell has been a leader for most of his life, having led troops as a military leader, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and secretary of state. But Powell believes a leader is more than just his or her title. Drawing on examples garnered from experience as both a leader on the world stage and as eyewitness to leadership in action, Powell illustrates for audiences precisely what it takes to be a leader, providing strategies for “taking charge” during times of great change and great crises. Powell demonstrates how to remain focused, take responsibility and work towards improving processes, organizations and people.
