When Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House of Representatives, he learned an important lesson: Lions will starve on a diet of chipmunks. They need to hunt antelopes to survive. In the same way, leaders who constantly focus on small projects and let antelope-sized ones go by will starve their organizations.
It is essential that leaders have vision for the future, values to guide the collective effort, management skills to focus resources effectively, and an ability to adapt to constant transformation. Speaker Gingrich can share his experience as a political leader and business owner to help teams in the public and private sector develop effective leadership, management and transformation strategies.
Newt Gingrich has long served as an ardent advocate of efficient, effective health care. He founded the Center for Health Transformation, envisioning the health care system of the future – one that is patient-centered, technologically-integrated, knowledge-intense and innovation-rich. With these smart, strategic reforms, health care systems can be transformed from anchors on national economies to engines that deliver more choices for patients at lower costs.
Speaker Gingrich understands the complexities, challenges, and opportunities of our current health care systems – and how we can, and must, harness entrepreneurship and innovation to build a 21st century health care system that empowers patients, focuses on the doctor-patient relationship, uses the best new science to save lives and save money.
Technology is dramatically reshaping the 21st century battlefield and business – even more so than the airplane, radio communications, and the automobile changed the front lines of combat and commerce in the 20th century.
Cyberwar, artificial intelligence, supercomputing, and the interaction of low-level forces with high-level communications capability have shifted the balance of power and elevated the threat levels of many previously inconsequential antagonists – in battle and civilian businesses. At the same time, means to cripple technology, such as electromagnetic pulse weapons, have become more dangerous to our electronics-dependent societies.
Countries and companies which adapt to these new threats will survive much better than those which ignore them. After working in national security and defense as a member of Congress and as a civilian for nearly 40 years, Speaker Gingrich’s unique background and insights can help governments and private companies understand, prepare for, and respond to 21st century threats.
We are on the brink of a new era of human existence – an era in which human beings will travel to, live, work, and perhaps even play on planets other than Earth. Innovative companies in America and Europe are dramatically lowering the cost of access to space, creating smaller and cheaper satellites, testing ways to mine precious metals from asteroids, and developing means to build very large structures in outer space. These activities will help create a successful, sustainable new economy and lead our world into a new frontier of discovery and adventure.
Speaker Gingrich has been a visionary and leading advocate for space exploration, and the development of the new space industry for more than 30 years. Since he cofounded the Congressional Aviation and Space Caucus in the House of Representatives in 1981, Gingrich has been a leader in writing and implementing space policy and leadership. He continues to serve as a member of the User Advisory Group of the Nationals Space Council.
In his effort to promote American strength – both economic and martial – Speaker Gingrich has spent much of his time researching and learning about 5G communication technology. The development and deployment of this technology will not simply make your cell phone faster, it will change everything about the way we communicate, do business, and even fight wars. It will be the enabling technology for the wide use of self-driving cars, smart cities, automated logistics and supply chains – and much more. Unfortunately, the United States is far behind the curve on implementing this next generation technology. Specifically, China has already positioned itself to be the dominant leader in the 5G revolution. In addition to being an economic boon for China, this will allow the country to control, intercept, and manipulate untold amounts of data worldwide. Speaker Gingrich will describe why and how the United States can compete – and win – in this new world of technology.
