Keynote Lunch featuring Bob Woodward
February 4, 2020

From Presidents to CEOs, the Price of Politics and Larger Lessons of Leadership
Known for consistently revealing the inside, hidden stories of Washington and the American Presidency, Bob Woodward is a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and Washington Post associate editor who has earned iconic status in American journalistic heritage. From Presidents to CEOs to the personal lessons learned along the way, Woodward will share a candid and straightforward presentation on the leadership lessons he has learned and observed over the years. He’ll explore presidential leadership and decision-making, analyzing where administrations have gone right and wrong in dealing with domestic and international issues and he’ll describe what to look for in future leaders. He’ll also explore the price of politics and its impact on leadership. You’ll find his keen insight on leading while adapting to changing circumstances thought-provoking and relevant to your own role as a leader.

Bob Woodward is an associate editor of the Washington Post, where he has worked since 1971. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first in 1973 for the investigative coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second in 2003 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Called “the best pure reporter of his generation, perhaps ever” by The Weekly Standard, Woodward has authored and co-authored 19 books and had more national best-selling non-fiction books than any other contemporary American writer. No one digs deeper or has provided a more detailed or penetrating portrait of the last nine Presidents – from Nixon to Trump – than Bob Woodward. In listing the all-time 100 best non-fiction books, Time magazine has called All the President’s Men, by Woodward and Bernstein, “Perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history.”
