On the eve of the release of my newest book, THE MEMO. Five Rules for Your Economic Liberation by Berrett-Koehler Publishers, I am proud and pleased to announce that going forward my commercial public speaking interests (globally) will be managed by two of the best agencies in the business: The Harry Walker Agency and the Washington Speaker’s Bureau.

Washington Speakers Bureau and the Harry Walker Agency are two of the best and most highly respected agencies in the world today. This is precisely where my and our message, voice and sense of mission needs to be centered at this stage.


The Harry Walker Agency is one of the world’s leading speakers agencies.  Since 1946, they have partnered with event planners around the globe and have connected them with the world’s most important voices.

They have long-standing and exclusive relationships with hundreds of speakers worldwide, including World Leaders, Nobel Laureates, Journalists, Bestselling Authors, Global Business Leaders, Economists and Entertainers.

The Harry Walker Agency represents several friends of mine such as former President Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, and represented Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the civil rights movement, and even today still represents my mentor, and Dr. King’s right hand Andrew Young (now Ambassador Andrew Young).

Founded in 1980 by Bernie Swain, Paula Swain and Harry Rhoads, Jr., Washington Speakers Bureau (WSB) helped to revolutionize the lecture industry by setting a standard for commitment, trust and care, and has become one of the leading lecture agencies by putting people first. Get the full story here.

WSB also represents noted World Leaders and Change Agents including friends and colleagues of mine — such as former President George W. Bush, former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, General Colin Powell, Kate Cole and entrepreneur Steve Case. They also represent Arianna Huffington, Chris Matthews and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, all of whom will be speaking at the HOPE Global Forum Annual Meeting next week in Atlanta.

Led today by Harry Rhoads, Jr. and Christine Farrell, WSB continues to revolutionize the industry. More than thirty years and over 50,000 engagements later, their search for the people whose ideas are changing the world continues.

I am honored to be represented both by the Harry Walker Agency and the Washington Speaker’s Bureau today.  You can find my profile in the provided links above.

I would also encourage you to follow my Facebook Live ‘Straight Talk’ Silver Rights Series, where more than 26M people have watched my Live Video Sessions over the past 12 months. Like and Follow the page, and tell a friend. This movement is real.  My life mission is nothing short of helping a generation of future Leaders and Builders — to ‘Get The Memo’ in and for their lives.

Okay, let’s go…
