“Bob Woodward is an icon in the journalism profession,” said 2019 PRSA National Chair Debra Peterson, APR. “In his roles as award-winning journalist and author, he uses comprehensive interviews, meticulous research and narrative clarity to inform and educate his audiences. We look forward to hearing the compelling content he will deliver as a keynote speaker at this year’s international convention.”
