When Jon Favreau—director of speechwriting for President Barack Obama (2009-2013)—joined the White House at age 27, he became the second-youngest chief speechwriter in United States history. Sharing illuminating anecdotes from a career spent working alongside the Commander in Chief on the two most pivotal presidential campaigns in recent history, in the West Wing and throughout the world, Favreau conveys his own life experiences, his aspirations to balance idealism with the reality of politics and insights to inspire others to consider public service and develop their skills as future leaders.

The significance of meaningful and effective words cannot be overrated, especially when a critical message is needed to stand out in a 24/7 news cycle and break through the constant noise of social media.  Jon Favreau—director of speechwriting for President Barack Obama (2009-2013)—knows this all too well as he has worked on some of the most important communications coming from the OvalOffice.  According to Obama chief advisor David Axelrod, he has had his “stamp on all the great speeches from 2005 to early 2013” and always sought to tell a compelling story rather than string together a collection of sound bites. However, it is not simply a sheer talent with words that has made Favreau a success. While his rhetorical prowess has played a role, what sets Favreau above the rest is his unique ability to “see” or get behind the words—to capture the essence of an issue and create dialogue that clearly and powerfully articulates what it is about that issue that matters and why we should care. As former right-hand man and “mind reader” to arguably one of the greatest orators in United States history, Favreau offers his audiences valuable insight on how precisely—from conception to delivery—to “get behind the words we speak.” In the process, he discusses the significance of “mining” resources for inspiration, creating scripts that speak from and to the heart and “walking the walk” of talk.

As chief speechwriter and senior aide to Barack Obama during the 2008 and 2012 elections, Jon Favreau has been at the center of the storm for two successful presidential campaigns. As a political columnist for The Ringer and co-host of Keepin’ It 1600, one of America’s most popular podcasts, he draws on his unique perspective to cut through the noise and focus on the issues, messages and moments that had the biggest impact on the 2016 election. Favreau offers insights into Donald Trump’s rise, Hillary Clinton’s challenges, and the effects of the media and the national mood following one of the most unusual races in history.

Richard Fowler regularly appears in front of television audiences to offer his perspective on the most important issues of the day. Yet while others build their careers by tearing others down, Richard’s stands out as a voice of inclusion, starting with those with those who disagree with him.

Across this country, young and old alike are yearning for a different tenor to address the challenges of our time. Proudly progressive, Richard will help outline the important differences between the solutions proposed by progressives versus those proposed by conservatives for audiences. At the same time, Richard insists that while we may disagree about the best way forward, those of opposing political stripes love their country in equal measure. Only when we acknowledge this basic tenet of our democracy can we begin to heal the nation’s wounds in an age of cynicism and come together to build a better future for the next generation.
