A medical doctor and the founder of the renowned international humanitarian organizations War Child USA and War Child Canada, Dr. Nutt has worked with children and their families at the frontline of many of the world’s major crises – from Iraq to Afghanistan, Somalia to the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sierra Leone to Darfur, Sudan. A leading authority on current affairs, war, international aid and foreign policy, Dr Nutt is one of the most intrepid and recognized voices in the humanitarian arena and is amongst the most sought-after public speakers in North America.

Damned Nations is a bracing and uncompromising account of Dr. Nutt’s work in some of the most devastated regions of the world.

Dr. Nutt was nominated for the prestigious 2016 DVF People’s Voice Award, and has been named one of Canada's 25 Transformational Canadians by the Globe and Mail.

Speaking Topics
  • Samantha Nutt Customizable Speech Topics

    Dr. Samantha Nutt can speak to a variety of inspirational topics that are customizable to your corporation or audience.

  • Conflicted? The World of War

    This presentation takes a compelling look at the impact of war – the truth, the lies and the reality on the ground – and the major events currently shaping our world. Geared towards students, educator and general audiences, this captivating presentation examines our growing global economic and security inter-dependence and explores the meaning of social justice and community in the 21st century.

  • The Price of Inaction

    So what does it take to realize a vision of the world in which we act on our responsibilities as citizens? To do a better job (not necessarily even a perfect job) of protecting civilians caught in the crossfire of war? To reduce, if not eliminate, the threat of war as a propagator of death and disease and destruction and unfathomable hardship? What will this take? In this presentation, Dr. Nutt explains that it takes nothing less than a dramatic shift in the way we think about war. It takes a moral and philosophical transformation around the privileged position we occupy in the world – geographically, politically and economically – and the responsibility that comes along with this.

  • Corporate Governance

    Doing the “right” thing in business isn’t without its ambiguities, or even its liabilities. When do ethical screens trump financial considerations? How are these assessments weighted and what matters to shareholders? Will you be in breach of your fiduciary duty if you prioritize human rights over hard math? What is your legal obligation either way? In this thought-provoking presentation geared to investors, asset managers and business leaders, Dr. Nutt reflects on the changing ethical and fiduciary responsibilities facing businesses, and the meaning of governance and risk at a time of growing consumer activism and evolving international legislation. She examines the true meaning of transparency and corporate social responsibility, and makes the case for why businesses willing to embrace these changes will land on top.

  • Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies & Aid

    This presentation explores some of the concepts and themes in Dr. Nutt’s #1 bestselling book, Damned Nations. Suitable for audiences looking to understand more about current and international affairs, this gripping keynote is a valuable introduction to the challenges and opportunities facing our world.
