Anna and Jake offer speeches together or as individuals. They were in our Washington, DC Headquarter office the other day and led a fascinating conversation that touched on:

  • President Donald J. Trump's relationship with the media – how he uses it to his advantage, consumes cable news unlike any other modern president, and genuinely enjoys talking with reporters
  • The tension within the Democratic party, between more centrist members, and the progressive left
  • President Trump’s likely opponent, plus what he’ll need to do to be re-elected

Anna and Jake have tons of personal stories pulled from the conversations they have on Capitol Hill day in and day out. They can talk about politics at large or drill down on specific policy issues and share what they’re hearing from our political leaders and newsmakers.
