Jon Favreau (Exclusively WSB)

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.

Jon Favreau (Exclusively WSB)

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.

Jon Favreau (Exclusively WSB)

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.

Ari Fleischer (Exclusively WSB)

Wondering what you should do when the press calls? Fleischer shares lessons about how to handle the press so you can manage bad news and take advantage of good news. Business people deal with challenges that impact the bottom line every day, and reporters are waiting to write what’s gone wrong. Scandal, volatility and competitive pressures drive media coverage and every circumstance must be met head on with effective communications strategies. Fleischer describes how he kept the nation informed during the troubled times of the terrorist attacks on September 11, war and tragedy. He translates the principles he successfully used as the White House Press Secretary into practical steps that have been used successfully by a variety of his clients - corporations and sports organizations - seeking to stay one step ahead of the day’s crisis. This presentation is a practical, thought-provoking exercise that simultaneously entertains audiences and helps them survive a challenging news cycle.

With the emergence of competitors like a resurgent Russia and a rising China, the advent of new technologies and military capabilities, and increased competition in domains like space and cyberspace, the United States can no longer take its technological edge for granted. Decades ago, most significant technologies originated in the United States, with the bulk of research and development sponsored by the Department of Defense. Today, while the government remains an important sponsor of innovation, the cutting edge of technological innovation in many areas has shifted to the commercial sector. And with a technology base that is now truly global, other countries are investing heavily to catch up. Flournoy will discuss the critical questions these new realities raise for industry leaders and policymakers: How can our national security community better access and leverage new commercial technologies to keep the country safe? How can we restore trust and improve the partnership between government and the tech community in the post-Snowden era? And how can traditional technology sources for government (e.g., defense contractors) be part of the solution in helping the government access and adapt cutting-edge technologies?
