The Lavin Agency is a speakers bureau, based in New York City and Toronto. We exclusively represent leading thinkers, writers, and doers who inspire ideas and dialogue that make the world a better place.
In honor of the first 2012 Presidential Election Debate tonight, here’s Lavin Agency President and CEO David Lavin talking with communication speaker and The Chairs are Where the People Go co-author Misha Glouberman about the ineffective nature of today’s debate formats. They both argue that most debates are set up to encourage disagreement and head-butting, rather than to fully explore each candidate’s stance on the key issues. It would be much more revealing to find out what the candidates actually agree on, says Lavin and Glouberman, than to rehash partisan talking points.
