Bill Clinton HWA Exclusive Speaker

“Fantastic! The President was extremely gracious and incredibly kind and generous. He took photographs and/or shook hands with almost every, if not every one of our guests. It was a special day for a worthwhile cause thanks to his participation. To say it was a huge success would be putting it mildly.”

-Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach CA

Bill Clinton Biography, Background, and Speaker Profile

A Continuing Legacy

After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the William J. Clinton Foundation with the mission to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote healthier childhoods, and protect the environment by fostering partnerships among governments, businesses, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and private citizens to turn good intentions into measurable results. Throughout the Foundation’s history and growth, Secretary Clinton and Chelsea offered their voice, vision, and counsel. To recognize their past contributions and acknowledge their role in shaping the Foundation’s future, the Foundation was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Ongoing Initiatives

Today the Foundation has staff and volunteers around the world working to improve lives through several initiatives, including the Clinton Health Access Initiative, which is helping 5 million people living with HIV/AIDS access lifesaving drugs. The Clinton Climate Initiative, the Clinton Development Initiative, and the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership are applying a business-oriented approach to fight climate change worldwide and to promote sustainable economic growth in Africa and Latin America. In the U.S., the Foundation is working to combat the alarming rise in childhood obesity and preventable disease through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the Clinton Health Matters Initiative. Established in 2005, the Clinton Global Initiative brings together global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues. So far, nearly 2,300 Clinton Global Initiative commitments have improved the lives of more than 400 million people in 180 nations.

President Clinton's most recent book, Back To Work, was an immediate New York Times Bestseller. In the book, he details how we can get out of the current economic crisis and lay a foundation for long-term prosperity. President Clinton offers specific recommendations on how we can put people back to work and create new businesses, increase bank lending and corporate investment, double our exports, and restore our manufacturing base.

President Clinton's Bestselling Memoir, My Life, is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts to serving the public. It is the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, and a testament to the positive impact his work and his ideals have had on America and the world.

President Clinton's inspiring book, GIVING: How Each of Us Can Change the World, provides a robust look at how individual endeavors can save lives and solve problems, and it offers compelling examples of both citizen and corporate activism at work in the world today.
