A dynamic, visionary and inspirational speaker, Bob Walker was known for his oratorical skill when he served ten terms in the United States Congress. Along with close ally Newt Gingrich, he is credited with helping lead Republicans to control of the Congress in 1994. Walker served as Chief Deputy Republican Whip, Chairman of the House Science Committee, Vice Chairman of the Budget Committee and Chairman of the Republican Leadership.
Walker was instrumental in creating the nation's commercial space and hydrogen programs. He co-authored the first legislation on climate change to become law and is a critic of the politicization of climate science. He was the first sitting Congressman to be awarded NASA's highest honor, the Distinguished Service Medal. Upon retiring from Congress, Walker became President of The Wexler Group (now Wexler and Walker), arguably Washington's most respected advocacy firm, and today serves as its Executive Chairman. For more than forty years, Walker has been a Washington insider and it is that experience and expertise that he is able to convey in an entertaining and informative way. His ability to translate for audiences the intersection between technology and the future makes Bob Walker a fascinating addition to any gathering.
