Described by The New York Times as, “the unflappable and genial point-person” to the media during the various crises of President Obama’s campaign and presidency, Psaki offers a fresh and current perspective on the state of the political system and lessons learned from her time as as a Senior Advisor to President Obama and Secretary Kerry.

As the White House Communications chief, Psaki rewrote the playbook for communications strategy in the Obama Administration taking a more ambitious and creative approach to breaking through in a noisy media environment. She was one of the first people to walk in the door of the White House when the President took office, and can speak to what is happening behind the scenes in the first year of an Administration.

Prior to her return to the White House, she served as the spokesperson at the Department of State. As the public face for US foreign policy, she had a front seat to negotiations, traveling to more than fifty-five countries with Secretary of State John Kerry and firsthand knowledge of what motivates and drives the most relevant global leaders of today including Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu.

And as one of the youngest high-ranking women in the Administration and the mother of a toddler, she also offers a witty perspective on gender stereotypes and strategies for overcoming them. Psaki is currently the Vice President for Communications and Strategy at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Senior Advisor at West Exec Advisors and an On Air CNN contributor.

As a veteran of three presidential campaigns, and a well-known CNN political commentator, Jen Psaki breaks down what is happening in the 2020 presidential campaign.


How likely is a change in the White House, which candidates are most likely to challenge President Donald Trump and what does that mean for policy making over the next few years?


Under her leadership, President Obama was the first President of the United States to have a Presidential Twitter account. He was also the first to engage with non-traditional media from talking climate change with Bear Grylls to gun reform with Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.


Drawing from her experience advising President Obama, Psaki enlightens audience with her first hand insight on how and when to break through the constraints of traditional forms of communicating and what the first two questions are that every communications strategy should answer.


With the wave of newly elected female members of Congress, and more women running for President than ever before in history, the balance of power is changing in Washington.


Psaki draws from her nearly twenty years in Washington to talk about how the power of women voters and the growth of female candidates and elected officials has changed the strategy for influencing policymakers.
