Leaders from around the world, including India and Australia, bring together the worlds of politics, business, and athletics onstage during PowerUp Live to share their strategies on leadership, entrepreneurship, and overcoming adversity. Among this powerhouse mash-up of live speakers is Sarah Palin, who returns to her birth state in order to deliver a message about "living life vibrantly," as she states in a promo video for the event. In the same clip, the former governor of Alaska promises to leave politics aside to focus on leadership, hope, and the future. Also taking the stage, Rudy Giuliani mines his tenure as mayor of New York City to talk about being a leader during turbulent times. Publishing giant Steve Forbes then reports on the tightrope act required to balance professional and personal priorities before Kristin Armstrong—gold medalist at both the Beijing and London games—talks of dedication and hard work, and dispels rumors that the finish line is one giant Fruit Roll-Up. A portion of the event's proceeds benefits local charities, such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of Ada County and St. Luke's Children's Hospital.
