Hamilton Jordan

Hamilton Jordan thought he had experienced tough times as Jimmy Carter's White House chief of staff, but that didn't compare to what he went through after he left Washington --- three different diagnoses of cancer, all before the age of 50.

A versatile speaker, he's equally sought after for his motivational message on overcoming adversity and his expertise on "The Press and the Presidency."Since leaving the White House, Jordan has written two best selling books, started an NFL franchise, was named "Sport Executive of the Year" for founding the ATP TOUR (global men's professional tennis tour) and has created numerous other successful companies, many in the health and biotechnology sectors.
