If it is, what needs fixing first? Juan Williams is one of the very prominent figures who is trusted to take this on in a fair and accurate way that invites all of us to care again. Read More >

The dance of politics is no game. Its players control the rhythm of the nation, and the decisions they make can get so personal, a bad one sometimes feels like somebody’s stepping on your toes. Today’s politics are so complicated and confusing, it’s all just a cacophony of corporate interests, special interest groups, partisanship, stagnation, scandals, etc., .…it just goes on and on.

The media sure doesn’t help. Every issue’s solution varies from channel to channel, and paper to paper – each expressing its own interests. It has gotten so bad that the media is now alienating instead of informing, making us all feel like wall flowers. Well, when it comes to the Potomac two-step…Juan Williams doesn’t dance.
Whether Juan is at the White House dinner table, or in the back booths of Washington, he always gets the scoop. Williams equates his insider position to being in the dug-out, rather than the stands, where most journalists are – in the cheap seats with us, the public. William’s dug-out analogy is perfect, as he is always close enough to the “deciders” to hear their game plans, see what’s coming, and feel the pressures they are under. Juan is always in the right place at the right time to give us the understanding that very few have. In this keynote, Williams exposes and illustrates the whole story because of his position behind the scenes. This has consistently been one of the most popular speech programs in America, year in and year out. Read Less ^
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. Read Less ^
The Civil Rights years are widely considered to be the most turbulent time in recent American history. This struggle has evoked the full spectrum of human behaviors – from compassion, to oppression – setting the stage for sweeping reform in race relations. Read More >
Juan Williams's most acclaimed book, Eyes on the Prize is not only an inspired chronicle of the movement, it stands as the definitive history of the era, and as required reading in our schools as one of the basic texts on civil rights. Now, more than a quarter of a century later, Eyes on the Prize, which has been selling consistently all these years, has not only led to more understanding about racial equality, but it has also led to a personal interview with Nelson Mandela shortly after his release, and a permanent place in the White House library.
In this presentation, Juan discusses the amazing situation he finds himself (and the nation) in. He not only created a true landmark book, he has also created a quarter century of dialogue and awareness about our nation’s history, which to this day is not only relevant, but repeating itself in clashes between African Americans and the institutions we expect to police crime – not color. Today, people from all walks of life are rediscovering Eyes on the Prize and now have the unique opportunity to connect with its author, ask the tough questions, and truly see where we are, how far we have come, and how far we have yet to go.

Although some in the healthcare industry are in support of Obamacare, many are still in need of understanding what factors, such as the flow of new benefits, the Medicare and Medicaid debt and discontent with the status quo, are influencing the various attitudes towards the health care exchanges. Williams explains that as long as we have the health care exchange programs, government will always have a hand in our medical care. Read More >
Currently millions have gained improved policies that cover preventative care and preexisting medical conditions, but many policy makers are still in disagreement as to if this will be a realistic plan on fixing the nation’s costly health care system. With a view from Washington, Williams will share a behind the scene perspective as Obamacare continues to move forward. Read Less ^
"Thanks to Juan Williams for an outstanding presentation on Thurgood Marshall. The event was a great success and Juan was a consummate professional, both on stage and in his interactions with our audience. We couldn't have asked for anything beyond what was delivered last night!"
"Juan was a joy to have here. Our CEO even said to me last night that he was the most personable speaker that we have ever brought in for this event. His stories were entertaining and enlightening, and we were completely surprised with how he brought them all together in the end. It was a great speech, and he did a great job referencing ODA and the impact we make in kid's lives."
"Juan Williams was fabulous! He spent pretty much all day here and couldn’t have been friendlier or more accommodating. He made a point to interact with pretty much everyone and he stayed until the last person left. Easily the best guest speaker we’ve had here in the three years that we’ve been doing this."
"I want to thank APB (the best in the business) for recommending Mr. Juan Williams to me. According to the University of North Florida and the Jacksonville community, Juan has ascended to the top of the charts as the best speaker we have ever invited to the luncheon. His talk was on a high academic level and provoked critical thinking. He is an intellectual with analysis that are of high clarity and fact. He was kind to our students and easy to work with. He was steady, in full command of his material, secure, and self confident. What I liked above all was that no topic was off limits. My boss is pleased. I will invite him again. Juan was simply the best and THANK YOU."
"Juan could not have been more gracious, personable, and engaging. His keynote address was not only superb, but it was clearly heartfelt, especially as he touched upon the impact the past year has had on his family. Mr. Williams was very well prepared, organized in his presentation, and his remarks were timely, appropriate, and thought provoking. I was especially pleased with the summary of his hour-long presentation when he drew comparisons between his tumultuous year personally and our tri-state community’s tumultuous year dealing with the flooding Missouri River! That was simply an outstanding touch that was not lost on anyone in attendance. Additionally, Mr. Williams took the time to sign autographs late into the evening and really made an effort to personalize each and every book he signed which was above and beyond the call of duty."
"Everything went wonderfully with Juan; he did a fabulous job. All of the officers said that he was the best they have ever had! Juan was so well received by our employees, and they greatly appreciated his humor, wit, and honesty. Usually the officers tend to want to book analysts and pollsters, and so a lot of the time what you end up with is a lot of statistics (and the presentations tend to be really dry). Not so with Juan; it was a treat to have him."
"Mr. Williams was spectacular. He was gracious to the audience and his message was thoughtful, wonderfully delivered and gave us all much to think about. On a personal level, he was so easy to be with and was appreciative of all we did to make his visit comfortable. The audience was ecstatic with him and his message and I would recommend him to any group! Thanks for all your arrangements and assistance with his visit. I do really appreciate it all."
"It was received as "one of the best programs ever." Juan was great to get to know and he did a great job delivering his speech. But the best part was the Q&A afterwards; He was asked some very thoughtful and challenging questions and his answers were excellent. Overall, you guys made me a hero.... again!"
"Mr. Williams was an absolute perfect match for this event. In a very short time, he became familiar with our school and community center and truly understood what St. Philip’s is all about. He brilliantly incorporated our purpose and goals into his speech. I must say, that is not always the case with dignitaries that visit our organization. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is interested in hosting an intelligent, straight forward professional speaker. He was outstanding."
"He was able to take the topic of diversity, apply it specifically to the regional issues faced currently by his immediate audience, and made them feel personally responsible and personally empowered to use their power and influence for positive change within their community. The audience was moved to tears, laughter, indignation and ultimately an energized call to action within their specific spheres of influence. He won a standing ovation and the audience left inspired to be the change they desired."
"Best speech I’ve ever heard at an AISNE Conference. Great speaker with valuable information and facts. Wonderful speech to bridge the gap of past and present, allowing a reflection into the future. Brilliant, eloquent, informative, and though provoking. High fives all around for getting one of the best speakers I have ever heard."
