The Fierce Face of Moderation: Battering Ram & Gridlock Buster
Moderates have long been castigated as "softies" with little will power of their own. But as Republicans and Democrats in Washington further dig their heels on opposite sides of every major political issue, we must realize that extremism prevents us from moving forward as a nation and as a global economy.
Speaker Juan Williams proves that problem solvers and negotiators - "moderates" - are, in fact, radicals whose beliefs align with those of the majority of Americans. In this presentation, he discusses such major national issues as healthcare, education, government debt, and social problems and provides solutions to these based in compromise. He also identifies the key national issues that will impact your specific organization and provides solutions to navigating those changes.
Williams embraces our nation's legacy of compromise - one that has allowed us to achieve some of our greatest accomplishments - and urges us to champion moderation as a way to move forward into new and exciting territory.
