Ari FleisherFeatured guest former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleisher will also explain how to hone your marketing message. This will be a rare opportunity to get messaging advice from a man who has helped counsel the President on communications and crisis strategy. Ari will take your questions in a program moderated by WCBS Bloomberg Business Reporter Joe Connolly.

As former White House press secretary, Ari Fleischer was the primary spokesperson for President George W. Bush and delivered the daily White House briefings from 2001 to 2003. He previously served as the Bush campaign spokesman in 1999 and 2000. In his almost four years working for George W. Bush, he served as spokesman during the historic presidential recount, September 11th, two wars and the anthrax attack. His best-selling book, Taking Heat, details his years in the White House and reached #7 on The New York Times best seller list.

Since leaving the White House, he still finds time to stay involved in politics. After the 2012 Presidential election, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus appointed Fleischer as co-chair of the RNC’s Growth and Opportunity Project to find out why Republicans lost that year and to chart a path forward for the Republican Party. He appears frequently on many of the leading political and news shows.

He has also worked on Capitol Hill as a press secretary to three Congressmen and one United States Senator.

Fleischer is a native of Pound Ridge, New York and a 1982 graduate of Vermont’s Middlebury College.  Now president of his own firm, Ari Fleischer Communications Inc., he offers advice to clients in the corporate and sports worlds on how to handle the press.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear from an expert in corporate and political messaging.
