The Latest from Washington: An Insider's View

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. Read More >

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 ^

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. Read More >

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 ^

Eyes on the Prize

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.
