For over 40 years, the award-winning former ABC News’ White House correspondent’s job was to trace the president’s every step to get the stories her audiences want—and need—to hear. Get a glimpse of the lives and experience of the seven presidents she’s covered through anecdotes, documents, and off-the-record conversations. Drawing back the curtains to reveal the personalities of many members of the First Family, Compton will share poignant and candid moments that historians—and most reporters—don’t get to see. She will also share her observations about the current political landscape with the new administration and how its policy is meshing up with competing ideas on Capitol Hill.
Explain the history, experiences, trials, and tribulations of former presidents based on fresh scholarship on historical precedents.
Outline the experience and dedication of a White House correspondent.
Compare and contrast former presidents' stances and policies to President Donald Trump.
Describe the relationship between the executive and legislative branches in the current political climate, based on fresh academic research and first-hand experience by the speaker.

Ann is a compelling speaker and certainly has a long history of reporting and relationships to cover. I had a hard time trying to understand how that is relevant to the conference we are participating in....other than the fact that this current administration seems to have very little regard for the press or the "fake news".
