Speeches and Speaking Engagements

Members of The District Policy Group have given hundreds of speeches, presentations, on-line briefings, and talks over the years. We excel at matching the correct tone and content to each particular audience. We feel it is essential to address the key issues in terms the audience can appreciate, whether they are new to an issue or have spent their lives working in the field. We have trained hundreds for Hill Days, on “how a bill becomes a law,” best practices for using social media to advance advocacy goals, and building advocacy relationships and programs. We have also given speeches for groups ranging from 5-500 people on in-depth policy issues, “crystal-balls” into policy development, Congress, elections, the state of play in Washington generally, and industry specific issues. We pride ourselves in working with organizations to tailor our remarks to their needs in both context and presentation. We are comfortable at the podium or sitting around a table, with slides or without, solo or on a panel, and speaking about the big picture or the minute details—whatever works best for the audience.
