For those who agree with the legendary Tip O'Neill who said, "All politics is local," - Mike Barnicle's thoughtful commentary will provide an informative and entertaining look at how politics, the economic environment and social change affect our lives. Barnicle has a knack for looking at today's news and offering up a point of view that considers the impact on workers, families, children and society. Whether looking at serious news from Congress and the Trump Administration or the less serious absurdities of everyday life, Barnicle's funny, at times irreverent, but always timely blend of humor and content make him a crowd-pleaser.

No two speeches of Dave Barry's are exactly the same. Dave brings his hilarious sense of humor to your stage and offers up his wacky point of view on relationships, work, kids, technology, and life in general.

Beginning with their first shared Watergate byline in June 1972, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein set a new standard for Washington journalism and in-depth, behind-the-scenes reporting on the American presidency. Together Woodward and Bernstein tell the stories behind their newspaper work and books, offering a unique, riveting and personal tour of politics and Washington. Addressing the weaknesses and strengths of eight presidents, their presentation provides a vivid lesson in leadership. The co-authors of All the President’s Men (1974) and The Final Days (1976) will explore the impact and methods of the modern media from their own police-beat-style reporting to the radical changes brought by the internet, cable news and social networking tools.

Today a permanent Washington class — members of Congress, lobbyists, journalists, bureaucrats — exercise a pervasive degree of concentrated power that would terrify the Founders (federalists and anti-federalists alike). This stultifying fact is perhaps our greatest challenge and obstacle to national progress. Carl Bernstein, born and raised in Washington, D.C., began working at age 16 for the town’s pre-eminent newspaper of the day — The Washington Star: he has since spent half a century as a journalist unraveling the mysteries of his native city. His latest work — including a documentary film he is making about Congress — examines a Washington condition that is strangling the country’s historic political and social progress.

Based on her longtime best-selling and award-winning book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, esteemed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin presents audiences with essential, object and fresh lessons in leadership, political acumen and management strategy. By deeply examining Lincoln’s leadership style and keen understanding of human behavior, Goodwin makes the case for Lincoln’s political genius by explaining his skillful navigation of the "team of rivals" he constructed to achieve not only political success, but also victory in the Civil War. Underestimated as both an effective orator and leader, this ordinary and extraordinary leader surprised both his colleagues and critics as he rose to political prominence, and today is remembered as one of the greatest presidents of all time. Goodwin, whose Team of Rivals was the basis for Steven Spielberg’s award-winning film Lincoln, also shares stories about her involvement in the hit film that saw Daniel Day-Lewis so convincingly bring Abraham Lincoln to life for millions of moviegoers.

Spanning 100 years of history, bestselling author Doris Kearns Goodwin takes audiences on the ultimate journey through some of the most momentous decades in American history – the industrial revolution, the rise of the robber barons, the Progressive Era, the Great Depression, and two World Wars. With an uncanny gift for both depth and detail, Goodwin masterfully weaves together a striking number of dramatic and complex story lines drawing from her Pulitzer Prize-winning book,No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II (1995) and her bestselling book, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism to provide an intimate, comprehensive and ultimately unforgettable portrait of the era’s three extraordinary leaders – Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt – along with the scintillating cast of characters, who together transformed the country.

World-renowned presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin reflects on more than 150 years of U.S. history to put into context our most recent unprecedented presidency – a fast-paced, unpredictable and at times impulsive Administration. By sharing her deep understanding of the ambition, resolution and resilience of some of our nation’s most revered presidents, Goodwin explains how past setbacks and triumphs shed light on the cultural, economic and political transformations that define today’s turbulent times. With a goal of educating and entertaining audiences, Goodwin brings to life some of our most successful presidents to provide insight for today’s leaders, and to demonstrate that however fractured our modern political culture has become, our democracy is also resilient and has survived—even thrived—through more troubling times in the past.

Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and foremost authority on presidential leadership, draws on her scholarship and experience to bring history to life in a conversational format with politicians, academics, civic leaders, journalists, or your company’s executives. Goodwin’s anecdotes and analysis  provide historical context for our turbulent political atmosphere, illuminating how today’s leaders can learn from the struggles and triumphs of the past’s greatest leaders. Most recently, Goodwin has been in conversation with former President Barack Obama, Salesforce vice chairman, president and COO Keith Block, Hearst executive vice chairman Frank A. Bennack Jr., presidential advisor Karl Rove, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, philanthropist David Rubenstein, author Jon Meacham, and journalists Bill Moyers (PBS), Steve Scully (C-SPAN), and Michal Lev-Ram (Fortune). This event, which can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each audience, will educate, entertain, and inspire.

With over 25 years covering and writing about the political scene in Washington, Charles Krauthammer offers unique insight and analysis into the goings on inside the Beltway and on the issues and topics foremost in the minds of most Americans. Audiences will enjoy what viewers of “Inside Washington” and FOX News have long enjoyed: seeing his sharp mind turned loose on the political issues of the day.

With over 25 years experience commenting on foreign policy, Charles Krauthammer offers a unique and highly influential perspective. He goes against the grain, not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom (for a decade he was almost alone in calling the Oslo peace agreements a fraud that would inevitably lead to war, and was proved right). Whether writing about 9/11, the Middle East, the democratic revolutions sweeping the world today, or the indispensable role of American power, Dr. Krauthammer’s views have been attracting the attention of presidents and senior policy makers for years. Krauthammer shares the insights borne of his experience as a trusted voice on international affairs.
