The Fierce Face of Moderation: Battering Ram & Gridlock Buster

Moderates have long been castigated as "softies" with little will power of their own. But as Republicans and Democrats in Washington further dig their heels on opposite sides of every major political issue, we must realize that extremism prevents us from moving forward as a nation and as a global economy.

Speaker Juan Williams proves that problem solvers and negotiators - "moderates" - are, in fact, radicals whose beliefs align with those of the majority of Americans. In this presentation, he discusses such major national issues as healthcare, education, government debt, and social problems and provides solutions to these based in compromise. He also identifies the key national issues that will impact your specific organization and provides solutions to navigating those changes.

Williams embraces our nation's legacy of compromise - one that has allowed us to achieve some of our greatest accomplishments - and urges us to champion moderation as a way to move forward into new and exciting territory.

Health Care Exchanges

Although some in the healthcare industry are in support of Obamacare, many are still in need of understanding what factors, such as the flow of new benefits, the Medicare and Medicaid debt and discontent with the status quo, are influencing the various attitudes towards the health care exchanges. Williams explains that as long as we have the health care exchange programs, government will always have a hand in our medical care. Currently millions have gained improved policies that cover preventative care and preexisting medical conditions, but many policy makers are still in disagreement as to if this will be a realistic plan on fixing the nation’s costly health care system. With a view from Washington, Williams will share a behind the scene perspective as Obamacare continues to move forward.
