Inside The White House and Hollywood: Getting to the Top with Character

During this presentation, Steve Ford will share the tools of his own success in Hollywood as an accomplished actor, and those of his parents, former President Gerald Ford & Betty Ford.

Steve's presentation will focus on such issues as leadership, overcoming adversity, the value of a strong family unit, living with values and character, setting and juggling priorities, and making the right choices in life.

Steve's unique perspective of life as the President's son encompasses a broad range of fascinating subjects: being 18 years old and having 10 Secret Service agents as constant companions ... his father's leadership in taking over the reins of the presidency following the resignation of Richard Nixon ... two assassination attempts on his father's life ... his mother's bouts with alcoholism and breast cancer.
