Bob Woodward’s presentation made the evening a success!
Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies
Yesterday was great! I think most people here appreciated the opportunity to spend a day with arguably the greatest investigative journalist of all time. Bob Woodward was very good with the kids, and his sense of humor kept the adults relaxed as well. We were all amazed at just how much Bob knows about the last few Presidents. My students had seen All the President's Men the night before so they had fun comparing Bob with a young Robert Redford.

Bob Woodward was so gracious with his time with our donors and guests and was a delight to be around. His remarks were smart, insightful, thought-provoking, witty, hilarious and portrayed the essences of our past presidents in his unique way.

The Race for the White House in 2016: Bob Woodward’s Critical History from Nixon to Obama

No one has written about the last eight Presidents, the CIA, war and the Supreme Court with more depth than Bob Woodward. A renowned political investigative reporter and two-time Pulitzer winner, Woodward brings an unmatched body of work to his presentations. With 18 best-selling books (12 of them #1 national best sellers from Nixon to Obama) and 44 years with The Washington Post, no one has put more practice into explaining and understanding the American presidency. Voters now face a pivotal point in history and many critical and complex uncertainties from national security to the economy. Addressing questions such as “Why has Washington leadership become so toxic?” and “What should voters not only expect—but demand—from the next President?,” Woodward offers a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of Washington, delving into crucial details and sharing real-time history that he has witnessed and often discovered through his reporting and research.

From Presidents to CEOs, the Price of Politics and Larger Lessons of Leadership

From Presidents to CEOs to the personal lessons learned along the way, Bob Woodward is candid and straightforward as he shares with audiences the leadership lessons he has learned and observed over the years. Using his vast background, Woodward is able to expertly explore with audiences the successes and failures of Presidents from Nixon to Obama. Presenting case studies in presidential leadership and decision-making, he helps audiences understand where administrations have gone right and wrong in dealing with domestic and international issues and describes what to look for in future leaders. He also explores the price of politics and its impact on leadership, and in particular cites specific examples of how the relationship between the President and Congress impacts the American people. His keen insight on leading while adapting to changing circumstances is thought provoking and relevant to audiences in any industry.

Obama's Wars

Working behind the scenes for 18 months, Bob Woodward wrote the most intimate and sweeping portrait of President Obama making the critical decisions on the Afghanistan war, the secret war in Pakistan and the worldwide fight against terrorism. Drawing on internal memos, classified documents, meeting notes and hundreds of hours of interviews with most of the key players, including the president, Woodward's lectures offer an original, you-are-there account of Obama and his team in this time of turmoil and uncertainty: a heretofore unseen look at the president, his leadership style and the inner-workings of his administration.
