Eugene Robinson (Exclusively WSB)

Eugene Robinson is on the front lines of news coverage everyday. He is a twice-weekly, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The Washington Post who is syndicated in 145 newspapers across the nation and is a prominent commentator on MSNBC. With an innate ability to cut through the clutter and provide clarity on today’s events, Robinson’s insights are free of the usual inside-the-beltway jargon. While media outlets may be tempted to churn out news served on a platter by candidates and companies, Robinson takes a step back not only to look at the big picture, but to focus on deeds—not just words. Whether he’s assessing politicians, cliff-hanging events on Wall Street or handicapping elections, he reminds us that politics may not be for the faint of heart but sure can be fun to watch.

Eugene Robinson (Exclusively WSB)

The number one question among journalists today is what new economic model will emerge to fund investigative journalism. While there is a wealth of news commentary, we are faced with a dearth of factual reporting. Eugene Robinson’s unique 25-year career includes covering beats as varied as city hall, foreign affairs, pop culture and national politics. He reminds audiences that while the media may have its failings, the profession is a time-honored watchdog that fights corruption and abuse. Today’s media holds extraordinary power over the political life of the nation and is less subject to control, even by the media moguls who are nominally in charge. The rise of 24-hour cable news and the Internet have vastly increased the flow of information, but have also short-circuited the traditional process. Robinson provides insights on the following:

  • The impact of the decoupling of news and advertising 
  • Fundamental trends in how news is gathered, presented and consumed
  • Why, in spite of the challenges, many news organizations are environments wherein there is increased innovation and a growing connection to readers

One of the nation’s most trusted and respected journalists, Rose addresses the current issues of the day.

Could iPhone-based apps challenge the world’s leading financial institutions in the same way that Amazon revolutionized commerce and Uber up-ended the transportation sector? Innovation in the software-based financial technology (FinTech) sector has attracted significant attention because of its clear potential to disrupt existing global financial services models. Many analysts believe that Fintech will be the “next big thing” for tech firms and investors in Silicon Valley. Why? A new model for decentralized transactions, often based on blockchain technology, could replace cumbersome traditional processes that empower banks, insurers and old-school investors.  Rapid growth in software solutions that facilitate person-to-person payments, crowdfunded equity investments and smart, self-executing contracts demonstrates that innovations in financial technology truly could revolutionize this sector. The FinTech Revolution will only occur, however, if this nascent technology overcomes challenges in cybersecurity, digital identity and legal regulation. In his presentation, Rosenbach provides audiences with important insight on:

  • The trajectory of key technologies driving FinTech, including blockchain, digital identity management and cyber security.
  • The current regulatory environment and avenues for reform to spur FinTech growth.
  • The potential for FinTech to shift the balance of the global economy and geo-political centers of gravity.

Luke Russert (Exclusively WSB)

Having had a front seat to the legislative battles that shape today's contentious political environment, Russert offers analysis on everything from the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, to the resignation of John Boehner as Speaker in 2015, and more. He explains how the rise of the Tea Party within the GOP permanently changed how Congress operates and what it means for the future of American discourse and democracy.

Russert also shares with audiences his up-to-the-minute analysis of current events including news from Congress and the Trump Administration. He leads a spirited Q&A session in which he is ready to weigh in on any topic, anytime and shares his insights on how social networking and technology will continue to change not only campaigning, but governing as well.
