Sean Spicer

Everybody knows Sean Spicer. At least, polls show, they know his name and his trademark style behind the White House podium. But before the former White House Press Secretary made his mark as one of the most recognized staffers in the Trump administration, he built a decades-long career in Republican politics, witnessing and shaping the inner workings of Washington, DC, from every vantage point — as a House of Representatives communicator, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative, Chief Strategist of the Republican National Committee, top advisor to presidential campaigns, and of course, White House spokesman. Few in Washington are as well-equipped as Sean to pull back the curtain and dissect what’s really happening in the nation’s capital.

 

Sean is the founder and President of RigWil LLC, a strategic consulting firm that provides insights to C-suite corporate and association executives. Since leaving the White House he has traveled the world addressing groups, corporations, forums, schools and associations as an exclusive speaker of the Worldwide Speakers Group.  Sean serves as a spokesman and senior advisor to the America First Action SuperPAC. He is a council member of the Gerson Lehrman Group and served as a visiting fellow at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics during the 2017-2018 academic year. He is the author of the New York Times Bestselling book The Briefing, which sheds light on the headline-grabbing Trump administration’s first year as well as the 2016 campaign and his time in Washington. Sean also serves as a commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve, and currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Yellow Ribbon Fun, as well as the Independence Fund, and on the Board of Advisors of Operation Renewed Hope.
