Juan Williams Speaking Topics

Changing Votes: The Evolving Face of US Politics

Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate in America

How the Internet Is Changing News & Politics

In this fascinating and timely talk from journalist Juan Williams, he shares how the rise of the Internet - particularly social media - is changing the way news and information is disseminated and consumed, and the way political campaigns play out. He shares his insights into political strategy in the digital age; the need to protect privacy, free speech, and the first amendment online; Internet policymaking on Capitol Hill; and the changing media environment, which was a central theme in his latest book, Muzzled.

American Leadership: Stories of Inspiration & Power Behind Proven Leaders

Using stories of historical leaders like Martin Luther King and Thurgood Marshall, and weaving in personal encounters with important contemporary decision-makers whom he has interviewed during his career, Williams explores American leadership in this keynote address.

In this inspirational talk he will also look at the leaders that shaped the historical Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka Kansas Case. Drawing on his extensive experience as a journalist and social commentator, Williams also explores the topic of the changing face of leadership in America. As campus populations become more diverse - racially, culturally and economically - the face of leadership changes. What are some of the issues that these changing demographics will create? How will this impact the work of career development and college recruitment professionals?

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.
