This event will be streamed on our YouTube channel (YouTube.com/ReaganFoundation), and pre-signed copies of his book can be purchased on our website.
Hot Seat is a memoir of successful leadership in times of crisis by the former CEO of General Electric who was named one of the “World’s Best CEOs” three times by Barron’s. In the book he shares the hard-won lessons he learned from his experience leading GE immediately after 9/11, through the economic devastation of the 2008–09 financial crisis, and into an increasingly globalized world.

Former White House Advance Staff Rick Ahearn, who helped to save White House Press Secretary James Brady’s life with his quick actions that day
