Speaking Topics
  • The Art of Seeing the Invisible

    Drawing on her 30-year experience transforming a small living-room operation into a billion-dollar global network against breast cancer, Ambassador Brinker shares the leadership lessons that every executive and employee needs to know to build their company, energize their teams, strengthen their brand, and institutionalize a culture of innovation to stay ahead of the competition and achieve world-class results. Ambassador Brinker motivates corporate audiences in every industry and sector to excel in “the art of seeing the invisible”—pursuing bold goals that may seem invisible and making them inevitable. This presentation is ideal for senior executive retreats and company annual meetings.

  • The Power of One

    One of the nation’s foremost social entrepreneurs and a global activist who has inspired millions around the world, Ambassador Brinker empowers audiences of all ages and backgrounds to embrace “the power of one”—the ability of every individual to make a difference in their communities, companies, countries, and the world. Drawing on her remarkable life experience as a breast cancer survivor, catalyst of an international health movement, US Ambassador and US Chief of Protocol, Brinker shares a unique lesson for personal and professional fulfillment to help every individual lead a life of success and significance. This presentation is ideal personal/professional development conferences.

  • The Patient Empowerment Revolution

    A former member of the President’s Cancer Panel, the United Nations World Health Organization Goodwill Ambassador for Cancer Control, and one of America’s foremost patient advocates for a quarter century, Ambassador Brinker addresses the key challenges facing the delivery of affordable, accessible healthcare in the United States and around the world today. Drawing on her pioneering experience of transforming the way the world talks about and treats breast cancer—and warning how the baby boom will become an unprecedented “cancer boom”—Ambassador Brinker argues that today’s “patient empowerment revolution” will only succeed if patient-centered care becomes the central organizing philosophy of a 21st century healthcare system. This presentation is ideal for the healthcare industry and associations.

  • Brave Enough!

    The recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama, and one of Biography magazine’s 25 Most Powerful Women in America, Ladies Home Journal’s 100 Most Important Women of the 20thCentury, and Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2008, Ambassador Brinker energizes women executives, entrepreneurs, and business owners to overcome the unique challenges facing female business leaders and seize the unprecedented opportunities in today’s business world. Drawing on her own experience of founding, building, and guiding the world’s largest network of breast cancer survivors and activists, Ambassador Brinker inspires women to be “brave enough” to pursue their professional ambitions, persevere in the face of barriers, and become mentors and models to the next generation of women leaders. This presentation is ideal for women’s business conferences and meetings.
