Senior Partner at John Zogby Strategies, Seasoned & Successful Forecaster
The ancient Greeks never made a move without consulting the Oracle. They depended on her prophetic predictions to tell them who would rise and fall in politics, whether or not they would be prosperous, or even if they should go to war. Her advice changed the outcomes of elections, the lineage of kings and the prosperity of entire countries. Read More >

In this presentation, John explores and evaluates the latest demographics of the ever-changing political landscape in America – heading into the future. He addresses and analyzes the latest voter trends and tendencies, as well as the evolving racial census of America’s voting population. John Zogby recognizes that the dynamics of the American voting public is undergoing tectonic changes.
Today’s voters are younger, less white, and more informed. He delves into the prospects for the political parties and independents of the future, and explains that any political party wishing to successfully relate to this new kaleidoscope of constituents, must have a strategy in place to answer new questions and concerns held by a growing and increasingly diverse mosaic of Americans. By the end of this presentation, Zogby will leave audiences with a plan, and the poise, to recognize evolving political dynamics and expectations, as well as the awareness of how to address these demands to succeed, on either side of the aisle.
The US economy is based on consumer spending. But those days are over - at least for a generation. The drive to reduce spending started long before the Great Recession, which only accelerated the trend begun in the late 1990s. Between 10 million and 12 million financially successful Americans are making a conscious decision to cool the "desire to acquire." Read More >
These tech-savvy consumers prefer "being connected" over material wealth and care about value over glitz. They want the steak, not the sizzle. Since they only have only so much to spend, they want to spend it wisely. In increasing numbers, they want to be part of what is right, not just what is popular - including being on the right side of the environmental and human rights equation. Speaker John Zogby will help you understand how this new consumer trend will impact you in the future and how can you turn this trend to your advantage. Read Less ^
In the most comprehensive research yet, speaker John Zogby explores America's "First Globals" - Americans born between 1979 and 1993 who are networked worldwide; who monitor global sports, fashion, and music; who, out of any age group, are the least likely to think American culture is superior to any other culture; and who are most reluctant to go to war against people who listen to their music and dress like them.

They are having a huge impact on the workplace, on NGOs, on home ownership and housing, and on the meaning of community. "America's First Globals are exciting to watch, but I am worried about a growing subset who are just losing hope," Zogby says. "Are we wasting significant human capital? How do we salvage the leaders of our next economy and planet?" he asks. The answers he provides in this keynote are both poignant and insightful. Read Less ^
The "splendid isolation" Americans enjoyed has now vanished due to communications technologies and savvy citizens who watch the BBC, Al Jazeera, CNN, and even Russia Today. But just as we have become more interested in what lies beyond our borders, the rest of the world is now watching us more closely than ever.
"An Arab diplomat once told me that 'we love America, it's the United States we have a problem with'," speaker John Zogby says. "Everywhere we see this disconnect between citizens all over the world who cherish the universal values that America stands for, while challenging the nation's self-interests." Since 1997, Zogby has polled people across the globe and has acquired a rare look into their hearts and minds. In this session, he shares how the world sees the US, particularly as other major countries such as China, Russia, India, Brazil, and Turkey assert their power.
"Just when we thought the inaugural symposium couldn't be topped, this one blew it out of the water. Richard Carmona, Robert Putnam, John Zogby, and John Quiñones…holy mole guacamole. I've heard nothing but "best conference ever," "those are the best speakers on the face of the planet,” etc. I give you sincere props for helping guide the agenda."
"Thank you for presenting the session on What Millennials Are Looking for in the Workplace. The conference was a huge success thanks in large part to the session you presented. I believe you gave our attendees a lot to ponder. It was a pleasure working with you."
"Everything went great – lots of positive feedback from both our attendees and our execs. His presentation was a great mix of humor and objectivity. I think everyone came away impressed!"
"Re:think 2008 was an unqualified blockbuster in every respect!
And the most important contributors to that success were the general session speakers and panelists who made these sessions “the most useful ever.”
Affording to the first 118 respondents to our post-conference survey, the “excellent” rating of the general sessions almost doubled this year from 20% to 39% and the “good/excellent” total jumped from 70% to 81%!
'I will do things differently when I go back to the office because of what I learned at Re:think…' was repeated over and over in the halls directly to me and others. To us, this is the highest praise our Annual can get, but, without you, it would not be possible.
On behalf of the industry, the ARF thanks you for taking the time to think, prepare, and engage at Re:think 2008. We hope you will come back next year.
Until then, continue to dedicate your mind and energy to daily excellence, because, as ARF Chief Research Officer, Joel Rubinson, so eloquently told us – 'what we do matters.'"
"Thank you so much again for participating in our 2008 conference. I am proud to hear all the positive feedback from the conference attendees and know that much of that is due to the caliber of speakers and presenters who accepted our invitation. In fact, a number of guests specifically commented on how dynamic and engaging your presentation was, so your participation went a long way toward making our conference such a success.
There are always so many events to attend across the country but I truly feel that our conference is one that engages people and offers them not only knowledge and networking but a sense of dynamism and involvement that is not found elsewhere. We at WACA are all excited to launch 2008 with such a stimulating event and are eager to keep the momentum going throughout the council network.
I hope that you found the conference as enjoyable and valuable as well, and I look forward to speaking with you again soon."
"I want to thank you for the quality and obvious preparation that went into your presentation at the Fibre Box Association’s Annual Meeting in Palm Desert. The feedback from the meeting’s attendees was extremely positive regarding your open, candid and informative comments. It helped to make our meeting very productive for all attendees."
"Just a brief note to let you know that John Zogby was excellent. We drew a decent audience of about 200, and his visit to the classroom and interaction between students and faculty was excellent. More than that he was a joy to work with."
"John was excellent and the audience who attended really appreciated his talk and gave him a few different questions from his normal. Our audience was a bit smaller today because of the inauguration, but still about 300 +.
I will say John is among the very nicest of people and has an excellent speaking voice. You can offer his service for lectures with great confidence. "
"John was fantastic! Our members really enjoyed his remarks. Thanks again for all of your help."
