Mary Kate Cary is a sought-after panelist and speaker who has guest lectured on speechwriting, leadership and politics at, among others, the University of Virginia, Georgetown University, American University, George Washington University, Amherst College, the University of Georgia and Texas A & M, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Ms. Cary also has appeared on bipartisan political roundtable panel discussions for the National Constitution Center, Harvard’s Kennedy School, the National Press Club, the Miller Center and numerous corporate conferences and trade associations.

She also regularly holds screenings of 41ON41 across the nation. In addition to hosting full screenings of the 90-minute film with panel discussions, she also presents highlights of the film in shorter formats to fit the audience. Ms. Cary has a set of a dozen five-minute clips from both the finished film and the raw interviews — ones rarely seen by the public — which she shares with audiences of all ages.

Ms. Cary also regularly speaks at conferences sponsored by national speechwriting organizations, such as the Professional Speechwriters Association and Ragan Communications.


With the support of the Bush Library Foundation, Mary Kate Cary works with corporations, non-profit organizations and educational institutions to bring to life examples of President Bush’s leadership style. Using behind-the-scenes stories told by the 41 extraordinary storytellers she interviewed for 41ON41, Cary shares short video clips that have never been seen by the public of George H.W. Bush’s decision-making style and leadership traits, told by family members and Oval Office insiders ranging from Secret Service agents and Cabinet officers to fellow world leaders.

Mary Kate Cary can speak to your organization about President Bush and how your employees can learn from his leadership and decision-making style.

“Mary Kate delivered a highly-rated presentation. We'd have her back in a heartbeat. She’s smart, engaging and funny – all the things that make up a great experience.”

— Carla Locchiato, CAE, Women in Government Relations Board Member
