Goodwin has written several biographies of U.S. presidents, including Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, which is the basis for the Academy Award-winning film Lincoln. She will discuss her books, her perspectives on American presidencies and leadership lessons during the Monday, March 10, 8 a.m. plenary session, which will be moderated by ACE Senior Vice President Terry Hartle.

She will sign copies of her November 2013 book, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism, after the plenary session.

Chopra’s March 10 luncheon plenary session will focus on ways technology can spur innovation, strengthen America’s competitiveness in the world and solve the problems facing higher education today.
