    “Coach Kemper is an opinion maker. INFO is an insider’s dream: candid free-flowing discussions with the elite policy makers of our time. Journalists, think tanks, business, and often-former speakers come to listen, laugh, and be educated. And you have to be invited by Coach. Tom Friedman spoke awhile back and Justice Breyer, Joel Klein, and I sat next to each other as guests. Amazing.”

    -Former Washington, DC Mayor Anthony Williams
