Join the Board of Trade and TD Bank on Thursday, June 22nd as we welcome award-winning producer and journalist Chris Whipple. He demonstrates in his new book, The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency, how those appointed to this lofty position have often served as de facto prime ministers, and the surprising extent to which their tenures have set the tone for our political climate. Through extensive, intimate interviews with all 20 living chiefs of staff and two former presidents, The Gatekeepers pulls back the curtain to expose how the nation’s levers of power are operated by these right-hand advisors, and what each appointment reveals about its respective president.
