For this 2016 election year, Satirist Robert Hirschfeld reimagines our Founding Fathers as the entrepreneurial founders of the start-up America, “coding” a new system of government as if it were a software operating system. The result: a funny, informative, and inspiring presentation that retells the founding of our country by creatively using the context of contemporary business and technology.
Robert began as a satirist in the late ‘80’s with columns in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Next he made his mark with a popular humor site awarded a prestigious Top 100 by PC Magazine. He followed this by establishing himself as the first technology “Cybersatirist,” and has since been making impressions on hundreds of thousands of people for over 16 years. He has spoken for a long list of clients that include Microsoft, Siemens, Forbes, State Farm and Shell. His success was profiled in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today; it’s no wonder Jay Leno called him, "one of the top satirists in the country.”
As a keynote, Hirschfeld will leave your audience smiling, refreshed, and ready to tackle the rest of your conference agenda. He's also perfect for after-dinner entertainment that ties in with your
