This journalistic icon gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein broke the news of the Watergate scandal. The book they wrote, All the President’s Men, won a Pulitzer Prize. His current speaking tour delves into the state of the American Presidency. Woodward offers well-reported answers to questions about the Trump presidency, the Mueller investigation, North Korea, terrorism and the economy that audiences won’t learn from any other source. As he reported on previous presidents, for 46 years Woodward has immersed himself in their decision-making, scandals, wars, and economic policy like no other reporter.
As a speaker, Woodward pulls the curtain back on Washington and its leaders to captivate audiences with stories that are sometimes surprising, at times shocking, and always fascinating. He blends stories that are both up to the minute and from the past (to provide historical context). Woodward speaks as he writes – crisp and concise – and helps people get behind the spin to understand what’s really going on in the halls of power in an age of 24-hour news, social media, and snarky politics.
