Tom Bossert to Discuss Political Volatility in the Trump Era
Tom Bossert will speak in an afternoon appearance Tuesday.
Monday, August 6, 2018


Tom Bossert, former Homeland Security advisor to President Trump, will analyze “Global Risks and Opportunities in the Trump Era” in a panel discussion at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, at Ketchum’s Community Library.

The panel discussion will also feature Richard Edelman, CEO of the global communications firm Edelman, and Frederick Kempe, the CEO of the Atlantic Council and a former editor of the Wall Street Journal.

The free discussion will range from rapid technological shifts, which have had profound implications on how governments and business operate, to the challenges of global economic and political volatility.

Bossert resigned from his post as Homeland Security Advisor in April. He is currently an ABC News Homeland Security analyst. He also served as Deputy Homeland Security Advisor to President George. W. Bush, during which time he co-authored the 2007 National Strategy for Homeland Security. He oversaw the security of the nation’s infrastructure for two years under Bush.

He also has been a fellow at Atlantic Council, a think tank founded in the aftermath of World War II that focuses on international affairs. The Council organized the discussion.

Edelman was one of the first public relations moguls to identify the importance of social media, coining the phrase “circle of cross influence” to describe how people are influenced by other people, cable TV and the internet, rather than mainstream media. He also started a blog in 2004, becoming one of the first CEOs to do that.

Kempe spent 30 years with the Wall Street Journal covering the rise of Solidarity in Poland, the war in Afghanistan, the reunification of Germany and the rise and fall of Mikhail Gorbachev. His book, “BERLIN 1961: Kennedy, Khrushchev and the Most Dangerous Place on Earth,” was a New York Times bestseller.

Library Director Jenny Emery Davidson called the opportunity to hear the three men “a tremendous opportunity.”

“It is a stellar panel,” she added.
