With the current political climate as the backdrop, Douglas Schoen shares his key insights on the future of American politics. Offering a glimpse into the failings of the two-party system and the gaps that have given rise to populist movements on the right and the left, he utilizes recent research to illustrate what the electorate really wants. Drawing on those findings, he challenges audiences to consider how the division has driven our two-party system to the brink of possible collapse and what this newest political crisis means for the future of American democracy.

Having been at the forefront of U.S. global trade strategy, negotiations and market activities, Ambassador Schwab shares a senior-level overview of the politics and policy initiatives at the White House and on Capitol Hill. She takes a broad look—tailoring her remarks to her audience’s specific trade interests and challenges—at future international trends including relations with China, agreements being negotiated by the U.S. and other major trading nations, and how corporate America can benefit from global trade initiatives.

With every change of presidential administrations, U.S. trade policies undergo change that could have a profound impact on companies throughout the world. Schwab shares her expert insights focused specifically on an international audience’s interests concerning trade with the U.S. Is the Trump Administration pursuing a more protectionist or more open trade stance? How is policy developed in the U.S. and who are the parties that influence how those decisions are crafted? What are the indicators to look for when trying to determine which direction trade policy is headed?

One of the most respected pollsters in the country brings you up to date on where the campaign stands in this most unusual election year. Using public polling data, Ann Selzer defines the mood of the electorate and illustrates why campaigns are doing what they are doing. Along the way, audiences get clear insight into the workings of the polling industry and the life of a pollster who gets it right.

This electoral year is like none other. No one could have predicted in 2015 that 2016 would look the way it does today. And yet, the polls told stories that were prescient—defining a dissatisfied public, slates with too many me-too candidates, cynicism, fatigue and even some anger. The pollster-in-chief for Bloomberg Politics offers her insights into this election year in an accessible data-driven presentation. As a pollster, Ann Selzer thrives on questions, so she happily devotes time to addressing what is on audiences’ minds.

Every four years, Iowa is the epicenter of American politics. An expert on the how and why of the Iowa caucuses gives historical context to the way the United States elects presidents. Ann Selzer’s speech is filled with anecdotes and personal experiences from her unique position in the vortex of some of the most fascinating races in modern history. Audiences are treated to an insider’s account of the good and bad of starting the presidential contest in Iowa, breaking some stereotypes and challenging conventional wisdom about the process. 

The new president is a climate skeptic. Several members he's selected for his cabinet and policy teams are similarly inclined. They favor an all-in energy strategy and enthusiastically embrace fossil fuels. Environmentalists and many nations view this as a ruinous course. What’s the story of energy and climate in the Trump era? How should business, science, and advocates communicate energy, climate change, and planetary stewardship? In this talk, Sesno, creator of, argues that, because the American public is divided and confused on these issues, there need to be distinct approaches and deliberate framing. Messaging must be driven by purpose and audience. Sesno argues that framing the story around innovation and invention can inform, inspire, and appeal to the widest audience.

Donald Trump broke all the rules in his campaign. His presidency will be like no other. Where is this taking us and how will it change us? In this talk, Frank Sesno assesses the politics, policies, and personalities of the Trump presidency. Are they a fundamental departure from previous presidencies, or do the rules still apply? What about President Trump’s attacks on the media and “fake news”? Sesno draws on decades in Washington and his considerable experience covering and interviewing presidents to discuss the precedent, practice, and public face of the Trump Administration.

 Sesno also examines the current state of our civil discourse, and whether it’s possible to bring people together in such divided times. What questions should citizens be asking of Trump, of the media, of their representatives going forward? How can we use our questions to hold those in power to account while also listening well enough to be empathetic to them and to those with whom we disagree?

Throughout her career, Wendy Sherman has demonstrated a knack for shattering both glass ceilings and stereotypes. She had a front row seat working on the campaign for Barbara Mikulski, the first Democratic female elected to the Senate, and helped secure and advise Madeleine Albright as the first female secretary of state. Having started her own business as well as having a successful family life, Sherman looks to speak to the leaders of tomorrow to help inspire and motivate you with the secrets to her successes, both personal and professional.
