Former White House Social Secretary to discuss his new book. Sunnylands Speaker Series
Meet Jeremy Bernard, co-author of Treating People Well: The Extraordinary Power of Civility at Work and in Life, a guide to personal and professional empowerment through civility and social skills.
Former White House social secretaries Lea Berman, who worked for George and Laura Bush, and Jeremy Bernard, who worked for Michelle and Barack Obama, have written an entertaining and uniquely practical guide to personal and professional success in modern life. They offer an important fundamental message: everyone is important and everyone deserves to be treated well.Their daily experiences at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue taught them valuable lessons about how to work productively with people from different walks of life and points of view. These Washington insiders share what they’ve learned through first person examples of their own glamorous (and sometimes harrowing) moments with celebrities, foreign leaders and that most unpredictable of animals—the American politician.
Jeremy Bernard, who served as White House Social Secretary and Special Assistant to the President from 2011-2015, will discuss and be available to sign this just-released new book. Jeremy has been interviewed on television and for print articles over the course of his White House tenure and was profiled in Vogue magazine in March 2015 as the first male and first gay White House Social Secretary. He was also profiled in 2012 in the New York Times, “White Gloves Not Needed.” He lived in Paris and worked as the senior advisor to the US Ambassador in France before becoming the White House Social Secretary. Prior to that appointment, he was the White House Liaison to the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
