Outgoing White House Spokesman Sean Spicer walks into the West Wing of The White House on July 29, 2017 in Washington, DC.
President Donald Trump’s memorable first press secretary, Sean Spicer, has reportedly become the latest White House departee to join the paid speaking circuit.
Spicer, who resigned from the West Wing in July but served his last official day on August 31, has signed with Worldwide Speakers Group, the company confirmed to Politico Tuesday.
In a statement, the firm said Spicer would use his “well-known candor and extensive experience” to discuss “the people, philosophies and policies” that matter most to U.S. citizens and businesses. The company’s website showed conformation that Spicer was one of the speakers available for bookings.
“We are thrilled to provide Sean for our major trade association, corporate, university and public lecture series customers around the world,” the firm said in a statement cited by Politico.
“With his well-known candor and extensive experience, Sean is uniquely qualified to help audiences understand how the political environment will impact them now and in the future.”
Spicer’s first speaking engagement will be in New York City on September 11 at the annual conference of the investment bank Robman & Renshaw, according to two sources familiar with his schedule cited in the report.
The fee for Spicer’s speeches was not disclosed.
An ex-political aide, Spicer became a figure of public attention this year as he attempted to diffuse a string of PR fiascos within the White House.
