John Gans is an engaging, thoughtful, and candid speaker who explains politics—within Washington, in the United States, and around the world—in ways everyone can understand.

With a style honed in the lecture halls of some of the world’s finest universities, hard-earned experiences in government, in uniform, and on the campaign trail, he draws upon a breadth of historical knowledge to put today’s headlines in perspective and leverages a conversational, compelling tone that points the way forward to a better tomorrow.

In the coming months, Gans will be on the road discussing his new book White House Warriors, which is released May 14th from W.W. Norton’s Liveright.
