Bob Woodward

Legendary Two-Time Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist & Author, Associate Editor The Washington Post

Bio

Former CIA director and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates wished he’d recruited Bob Woodward into the CIA. A journalistic icon who gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein broke the deeply disturbing news of the Watergate scandal, today Woodward continues to pull back the curtain on Washington and its leaders to captivate audiences with stories that are sometimes surprising, at times shocking, and always fascinating.  +

Woodward, whose co-authored book with Bernstein, All the Presidents Men, won a Pulitzer Prize, continued with the theme of secret government in all of his 18 books – and all of them went on to become bestsellers - 12 of them #1.

Woodward has a way of getting insiders to open up – both on the record and off the record – in ways that reveal an intimate yet sweeping portrayal of Washington, from budget wrangling, political infighting, and the price of politics, to how presidents lead, the homeland security efforts, and so much more.

Woodward is currently associate editor for The Washington Post where he’s worked since 1971. He has won nearly every American journalism award, and the Post won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for his work with Bernstein on the Watergate scandal. In addition, Woodward was the main reporter for the Post’s articles on the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks that won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize in 2002. Woodward won the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency in 2003.

The Weekly Standard called Woodward “the best pure reporter of his generation, perhaps ever.” In 2003, Albert Hunt of The Wall Street Journal called Woodward “the most celebrated journalist of our age.” In listing the all-time 100 best non-fiction books, Time magazine has called All the President’s Men, by Bernstein and Woodward, “Perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history.” Newsweek magazine has excerpted six of Woodward’s books in headline-making cover stories; 60 Minutes has done pieces on seven of his books; and three of his books have been made into feature films.

Woodward graduated from Yale University in 1965, and served five years as a communications officer in the U.S. Navy before beginning his journalism career at the Montgomery County (Maryland) Sentinel, where he was a reporter for one year before joining the Post--

Topics

The most famous political investigative reporter in America and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Bob 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.  +

The State of the American Presidency

Everywhere legendary journalist Bob Woodward goes, he says people ask to know what’s really going on in Washington. Their questions fall into four categories:

1) The presidency: How is President Trump doing and surviving? How does Trump compare with the eight presidents—Nixon to Obama—that Woodward has reported on for The Washington Post and in his bestselling books?

2) The investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller: is it like Watergate or will it fade away like Reagan’s Iran-Contra scandal?

3) Conflict: What is the likelihood of a new war? What are the goals with North Korea, in the Middle East, with the Islamic state, and on terrorism? Will there likely be a major escalation in one of the current conflicts?

And 4) The economy: Is the American/global economy sound or are we headed for trouble? How is Trump’s America First agenda playing out with our allies and enemies around the globe? +

In Woodward’s speeches, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning associate editor of the Post offers some well-reported answers to these questions 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. He is now leveraging a rich network of sources — applying his signature aggressive but fair and non-partisan reporting method for his next book on President Trump, his administration, and its many controversies. As with his 18 bestselling books – 12 of which have been #1 – Woodward will provide a behind-the-scenes examination of what’s really going on and what it means.

In 2014, Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and secretary of defense, said of Woodward, “He has an extraordinary ability to get otherwise responsible adults to spill [their] guts to him . . . his ability to get people to talk about stuff they shouldn’t be talking about is just extraordinary and may be unique.”  That is Woodward’s true gift and audiences at his speeches leave transfixed by what they’ve learned. --
