Mike Barnicle (Exclusively WSB)

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.

Paul Begala (Exclusively WSB)

A legendary political strategist, Paul Begala masterminded campaigns for the top leaders in government and corporate America. With his proven methods, he knows how to win over one of the toughest audiences in the world - the American public. Now, organizations can put these winning strategies at work for them.

He brings your audience proven tactics and techniques for communications success, and gives them specific strategies for getting their message across.

Paul Begala (Exclusively WSB)

Paul Begala has seen it all—government united, government divided, gridlock and clear sailing. He now draws on his extensive experience to give audiences an understanding of the impact of today’s political landscape on such issues as the economy, budget deficit, health care, immigration, the future of Social Security and Medicare, U.S. foreign policy, the on-going war in Afghanistan, the unrest in the Middle East and other critical issues facing the country here at home and around the world.

Fiercely competitive and focused on connecting clients with the right audience, Joel Benenson relays key lessons learned from presidential campaigns and while serving as a consultant to top American companies and CEOs, including Procter & Gamble’s A.G. Lafley, General Electric’s Jack Welch and AOL’s Bob Pittman. In this engaging, dynamic and informative presentation, Benenson shares with your audience what the corporate boardroom can learn from the campaign war room—and what they shouldn’t, such as:

  • How to leverage strengths, inoculate weaknesses, and identify the fault lines that shape consumers’ decision frames so your messages connect more with key audiences
  • How to set yourself apart, and the tools you need to understand your unique competitive framework
  • What it takes to frame questions to your audience so that your brand is the only answer

In today’s political culture Democrats and Republicans divide on practically everything from the war in Afghanistan to gay marriage to health care to Supreme Court nominations. Is the intensity and animosity of today’s political climate unprecedented or exaggerated? Or is this just business-as-usual Washington politics? And how has an intense political climate impacted the Trump Administration’s agenda and its working relationship with Congress? A well-known Republican who has crossed party lines throughout his political career to pursue important common purposes, Bill Bennett has the pulse of the American electorate as the host the popular, nationally-syndicated radio program Bill Bennett’s Mornings in America. In this timely presentation, Bennett gets to the truths behind the current political prevailing sentiments and engages in a lively conversation on the issues moving the American electorate.

Economic, political and social headlines have undermined the foundations of America’s faith in its future. At the center of American life for the last four decades, first as a Cabinet official in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush and as one of the country’s most respected political analysts, Bill Bennett reminds us that we have triumphed through hardship before—and have become a stronger nation because of it. In this uplifting discussion that dispels the notion that America’s best days are behind us, the patriotic Bennett inspires citizens to get involved in the national discourse and boldly confront the complex issues that lie before us. Bennett shows, that even through the most trying of times, America remains the world’s last best hope whose achievements remain high and remarkable.

Michelle Bernard (Exclusively WSB)

At a time when American politics are increasingly polarized, political analyst Michelle Bernard brings audiences a refreshingly centered in-depth look at some of the day’s most complex topics and distills multifaceted stories into a thought-provoking analysis. Whether the issues are national security and terrorism, foreign policy, education or the economy, Bernard provides an up-to-the-minute look at the breaking news shaping our world. She provides thoughtful examination on the role of culture, race, gender and religion in electoral politics as well as the media’s role in shaping political campaigns. Bernard is also able to look back on Barack Obama’s presidency, examine what impact the election of the Nation’s first African American president has had on race relations in America and around the world, and if advocacy of personal responsibility and stable families has become a call to arms to minorities and people of color. In this informative talk, Bernard helps audiences understand the challenges both political parties face in these fractious times. Calling for an increase in civil discourse, she firmly believes that this enormous political divide can be bridged, and provides effective policy solutions that are needed on issues of both domestic and international importance.

Michelle Bernard (Exclusively WSB)

One matter of concern on which both political parties can agree is the drastic need to improve America’s educational system. Right-of-center on issues from personal responsibility, to free markets and economic justice, but left-of-center on issues of gender, racial and social justice, Michelle Bernard is fiercely independent, smart, passionate and candid with her views. In this talk, Bernard discusses:

  • How education remains the great equalizer in American society
  • How school choice is a powerful means of escaping poverty
  • How proposals for the U.S. government to provide all students with a free college education might impact the American economy and the possible unintended consequences of such proposals on public, K-12 education, college readiness in low income, rural, and communities of color, and on private, Historically Black Colleges and Universities;
  • How the education reform plans of various presidential, Congressional, and Gubernatorial candidates and political parties impact all Americans  
  • How comprehensive education reform now is the key to managing a shift in the American economy from industry to service is critical to avoiding another “Great Recession” and truly restoring the economy to health
  • How the American president’s advocacy for better educational opportunities for minorities and all Americans is the ultimate prescription for achieving the American dream
