Jonathan Martin (Exclusively WSB)

Political journalist and nonpartisan analyst Jonathan Martin shares with audiences an unparalleled view of today’s political landscape gathered during his day-to-day working relationships and uses his experience, quick wit and humor to decipher the ever-changing political terrain.

Mary Matalin (Exclusively WSB)

One of America’s best-loved political couples—James Carville and Mary Matalin—give audiences an enlightening and entertaining look at today’s most important political issues, the policies of the Trump Administration, and a behind-the-scenes look at politics inside Washington. Matalin and Carville are key players on the national political stage—they each have over 30 years of experience in politics and have individually worked for Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. They combine their unique experiences to provide audiences with a stimulating, candid, and provocative conversation from both sides of the political aisle.

Mary Matalin (Exclusively WSB)

Mary Matalin offers an exclusive, expert look inside the polarized world of politics in the 21st Century. With the 2016 election of President Donald Trump demonstrating that a global shift towards political populism is on the rise, she enlightens audiences on current events in Washington, what to expect from the Trump Administration, and the ambiguous outlook of the role of the media. Known for her humor and straightforward discussion of the day’s hottest political issues, Matalin provides audiences an expert perspective on approaching politics today.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell (Exclusively WSB)

As director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Obama and deputy OMB director under President Clinton, Sylvia Mathews Burwell was a widely respected bipartisan leader. She worked closely with a divided Congress to negotiate a two-year budget deal following the government shutdown of 2013 and navigate the complexities of a process that has real-world impacts for Americans. In this informative presentation, she shares with audiences:

  • An in-depth view into the federal budgeting process, and how the decisions made in Washington affect the lives—and budgets—of everyday businesses and individuals
  • An analysis of the role of the executive branch in creating and executing the federal budget, and how this process may play out under the current Administration and Congress

Chris Matthews (Exclusively WSB)

Razor-sharp intelligence and rapid-fire commentary on the American political condition are the hallmarks of Chris Matthews' presentation. His insight into U.S. politics and policies will make you laugh while educating you at the same time. Matthews offers an up-to-the-minute look at American politics, including his take on the Republican Congress and what it means for the Trump Administration.

Denis McDonough (Exclusively WSB)

In this timely discussion, Denis McDonough offers keen insight and analysis of the current geopolitical landscape, with special attention on national security and the threats raised by the increasing role of cyber warfare. Addressing how Russia, China, and other global hot spots fit into a shifting foreign policy landscape, McDonough explores America’s role as the world enters a new era in diplomacy, and the implications for businesses operating around the globe.

Denis McDonough (Exclusively WSB)

With astute insight to executive authority and the political process in Washington today, Denis McDonough explains the realities about what is possible—and not possible—for the Trump Administration and a Republican Congress to achieve. From infrastructure and taxes to health care and immigration, McDonough addresses the most important issues at stake for America.

Jim McNerney (Exclusively WSB)

Increasingly this means actively managing the interface with the governments of the U.S. and around the world, and their leaders. Jim McNerney has been actively involved—particularly when leading Boeing—with shaping outcomes at the legislative, administration and regulatory levels in D.C. Much of this work was critical to Boeing, the nation's largest exporter and trade participant. But, his chairmanships of the Business Roundtable (a D.C. advocacy group representing 60% of the U.S. GDP), the President’s Export Council and the US-China Business Council give him unique insights and experiences valuable to all participants and policy issues across the economy.

As a Strategic Advisor to President Trump, McNerney provides audiences with insight on the critical trade-offs involved as the new administration considers plans for fiscal, tax, regulatory, trade, and infrastructure re-investment reform.

Admiral William H. McRaven captivates audiences with his exceptional leadership experiences, exploring today’s geopolitical environment and a look forward to America’s place in an ever-changing global community. His principles of leadership and risk management are applicable to any organization and he firmly believes in the necessity of preparation, order and discipline, knowing that they are naught without a distinct and meaningful purpose or goal. He shares impactful narratives, lessons and insights on authority amidst turmoil and instability, the force of teamwork and personal initiative, resilience in the face of opposition, and the unconditional importance of never giving up. He challenges his audience and encourages them to accept responsibility, be creative within the rules, take control of their circumstances, and maintain focus during times of conflict. Audience members are inspired to apply McRaven’s diligence, courage and risk management strategies to their own lives and put in place the tools that will help them not only succeed within their organization but also reach new levels of achievement. 

In this moderated discussion, Admiral William H. McRaven eloquently draws on his extensive career of 37 years of service as a Navy SEAL. The discussion addresses issues such as U.S. foreign policy, the current geopolitical landscape, leadership during high-stress situations, risk management, teamwork, resilience in the face of adversity, resourcefulness, personal accountability, and the determination to succeed. His presentations are distinctive and customized to meet the needs of your audience.
