    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you are liked, you are booked regularly.

    Cons

    Bookings sometimes feel very tied to who is in power in Congress and the White House. More women booked when HRC was running for president and fewer after. More minorities were booked when President Obama was running and in office; fewer after President Trump was elected.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid stereotyping of talent.
