Intellectually fearless and a perennial visionary and historian, Newt Gingrich is the foremost economic, social, environmental and political thinker in America today. He is well-known as the architect of the "Contract with America" that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in forty years. After he was elected Speaker, he disrupted the status quo by moving power out of Washington and back to the American people. Under his leadership, Congress passed welfare reform, passed the first balanced budget in a generation, and passed the first tax cut in sixteen years. In addition, the Congress restored funding to strengthen our defense and intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission.

But there is a lot more to Newt Gingrich than these remarkable achievements. As an author, Speaker Gingrich has published thirty-five books including both fiction and non-fiction New York Times best-sellers. Newt has also become one of the most highly sought-after public speakers, accepting invitations to speak before many of the most prestigious organizations in the world. Because of his own unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Speaker Gingrich is able to share unique and unparalleled insights on a wide range of topics. His audiences find him to be not only an educational but also an inspirational speaker.

Few people in the world have as much insight into President-elect Trump’s philosophies, principles and objectives as Newt Gingrich.  As the senior voice in the Republican Party and advisor to the new Administration, Gingrich has been at the forefront of the Republican strategy for the last two years.


As our country begins to make sense of this historic election and the evolving Republican agenda, Gingrich will be the primary thought leader available to provide context, perspective and optimism.


In his speech The Fundamentals of Trump’ism, Gingrich eloquently defines the forces – both domestic and abroad – which led to one of the most historic, and seemingly unlikely, political victories in history.  Moving forward, Gingrich lays the groundwork for the new Administration’s positions on the most pressing issues of our time, and specifically those that will most greatly impact his audiences.


There are several parallel revolutions in military affairs underway. They will reshape the battlefield and the nature of war in the 21st century as much or more than the airplane, the radio, and the tank changed the 20th century.


Countries which adapt to these new systems of power will survive much better than countries which ignore them. New patterns of military affairs include cyberwar, nanoscale science and technology, robotics, massive computational systems with wireless interfaces, biological developments (both positive and negative), electromagnetic pulse, lawfare, and the interaction of low-level violence with high-level communications.


Speaker Gingrich has a unique background to discuss this topic. He began working with the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command in 1979, helped found the Military Reform Caucus in 1981, helped pass the Goldwater-Nichols reform legislation in 1986, helped create and then served on the Hart-Rudman Commission on National Security 1998-2001 and served as adviser on national security 2001-2006. He is the longest-serving teacher for one and two star admirals and generals at Capstone (National Defense University) and at the Joint War Fighting Course at the Air University (23 years).


Newt Gingrich has a deep understanding of the nuances of a world in constant flux, both economically and geo-politically. He draws on his experience as a statesman and champion of opportunity to analyze the international issues affecting you and your bottom line.


No one is better positioned than Speaker Gingrich to offer insights about the contemporary global challenges faced by organizations worldwide. An expert in terrorism, security, diplomacy and the global economy, Speaker Gingrich analyzes a myriad of world events including those in such pivotal countries as China, Russia, India, Pakistan and Iran as well as broader issues of globalization, foreign policy and free trade and investment. With force, clarity and brilliance, Speaker Gingrich informs and engages audiences worldwide on critical international issues.


The United States has more energy resources than any other country in the world – more than Russia, Saudi Arabia, Canada, or Brazil. Expanding the development of these resources could create up to 1.1 million new jobs and deliver $127 billion in new government revenues by 2020, according to a recent Wood Mackenzie study. With the right regulatory policies, the United States could be the largest oil producer in the world by 2017.


Recognizing the transformative impact these resources possess, Speaker Gingrich presents a compelling approach to unleashing America’s full energy production potential, creating jobs, lowering gasoline and other energy prices, increasing government revenues and bolstering national security. He deftly illustrates the power of citizen action, such as the “Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less” petition that resulted in the removal of the 25-year ban on offshore drilling and decreased gas prices to under $2 dollars a gallon. Informative and engaging, Speaker Gingrich offers pragmatic energy solutions that will drive the economy, lower prices and promote security and prosperity for all Americans, now and in the future.


America only works when Americans are working and American families and businesses deserve certainty and predictability. Drawing from the proven policies used when he was Speaker to balance the budget, pay down the debt, and create jobs, Speaker Gingrich offers a bold set of ideas and initiatives to free American entrepreneurs to invest and hire, stimulate growth and improve the quality of the U.S. workforce.


Speaker Gingrich was the only candidate in the race for the Republican nomination who had led a national movement to elect a Republican majority and then achieved substantial economic reforms of the federal government, including welfare reform, balanced budgets, and tax cuts. These historic reforms liberated the American people to create 11 million new jobs in just four years. In this provocative, enlightening discussion, Speaker Gingrich pulls from his 35-year career as a public figure advocating, explaining and achieving economic reforms in government to offer penetrating insight and astute perspective on today’s most vexing and vital geo-economic issues.


It is essential to have leadership that has a vision for the future, a set of values to guide the collective effort, management skills to focus resources effectively and a commitment to effectives in a time of constant transformation. Speaker Gingrich has studied Peter Drucker, Edwards Deming, the use of metrics and Lean Six Sigma. He has led profound change in the Congress and in government. He has also run four small businesses and co-authored with Nancy Desmond The Art of Transformation. Speaker Gingrich works on effective leadership, management and transformation in both the public and private sector.


Newt Gingrich has long served as an ardent advocate of efficient, effective healthcare. He founded the Center for Health Transformation, envisioning the health care system of the future – one that is patient-centered, technologically-integrated, knowledge-intense and innovation-rich. With these smart, strategic reforms, healthcare can be transformed from an anchor on our economy to an engine; from a broken, fragmented system to a coordinated, innovative system that delivers more choices at lower cost for all Americans.


In this eye-opening presentation, Speaker Gingrich examines and illuminates the complexities and opportunities of our current healthcare system and how we can create a free market framework for healthcare, providing affordable, portable, and reliable healthcare coverage. He cogently explains how we can, and must, harness our vast entrepreneurial spirit and drive for innovation to build a 21st century health care system that empowers patients, focuses on the doctor-patient relationship, uses the best new science to save lives and save money, lowers medical costs, and improves the quality of life for every single American.


As one of the most respected and brilliant political minds of this generation, Newt Gingrich is a dynamic and powerful force on today’s geo-political landscape. He has been an inspiring leader in American politics for over three decades, with an uncommon intelligence and solution-oriented perspective that has kept the national debate lively and productive.


Galvanizing a grass-roots movement that propelled him to the forefront of one of the most hard-fought Presidential primary races ever, Speaker Gingrich energized and engaged voters around the country with his lucid discourse, sensible solutions, and an unrivaled wit. With vision and vibrancy, Speaker Gingrich shares his unparalleled experience and exceptional insight of current global and political issues with individuals and organizations to help guide them in these unprecedented, precarious times.
