The National Conference of State Legislators (www.ncsl.org) is where legislators and staff from around the world and across the aisle come together to tackle critical problems and find solutions that work.

Representative Horn has given this presentation to a number of organizations around the country including NCSL’s Emerging Leaders Conference in 2013 and to Life Long Learning programs in a variety of venues. Winston Churchill spent most of his life in elected office and was the only person to have been in a senior leadership position in both WWI and WWII. Rep. Horn said that he is honored to have the opportunity to share his passion for the Leadership and Statesmanship of one who is widely regarded as the Greatest Man of the Twentieth Century. Rep. Horn’s presentation describes how Sir Winston S. Churchill constructed and delivered his inspiring speeches during some the darkest hours that the world has ever seen.
