WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- WorldWide Speakers Group (WWSG), an innovative leader transforming the service and value paradigm in the global lecture industry, is proud to announce its exclusive representation of The Honorable Michael O. Leavitt, former Health and Human Services Secretary, EPA Administrator and three-term governor of Utah.  A brilliant bipartisan respected for his adroit leadership in both the private and public sectors, Governor Leavitt is renowned for his ingenious ideas and collaborative approach in revolutionizing government systems into efficient and effective vehicles that best serve the country and protect its future.

"We are extremely proud to partner with Governor Leavitt," said Robert Thomas, CEO of WorldWide Speakers Group.  "His exceptional experience and leadership, particularly in the healthcare arena, provide unparalleled perspective and insight on today's most complex issues.  Our clients will undoubtedly gain tremendous value from his unique expertise and intelligence."

Among other topics, Governor Leavitt will bring his trusted views to one of America's foremost, foreboding issues: healthcare reform.  He also tackles the burgeoning problem of food safety, addressing its increasing occurrences, imminent threat and practical prevention.

Governor Leavitt devoted the first chapter of his career to building successful businesses, specializing in risk management and serving as the chief executive of what is now the nation's second largest, privately held insurance brokerage in the country.  In 1993, Leavitt was elected governor of Utah, serving three consecutive terms and gaining national prominence as a creative problem-solver who put the best interests of the state above politics.

Bush, serving in two positions: first as Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and then as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Hailed as a "prophet in pinstripes" for his prescient calls for U.S. healthcare reform, Governor Leavitt now leads Leavitt Partners, a strategic advisory firm specializing in the areas of health and food safety that offers new solutions for solving the health care crisis, advocating fiscal responsibility and higher standards for quality care.
