Peggy Grande

President Ronald Reagan personally chose Peggy to work at his side for 10 years, and together they created a powerful partnership. Serving as his post-presidency Executive Assistant, Peggy was the liaison between him and his staff, the public, local dignitaries and world leaders. She ensured that events, travel, personal and political relationships and day-to-day operations were handled efficiently and effectively. She had a front row seat to history and got to know Ronald Reagan the man, not just the President. Sitting right outside his office every day, her private observations are not only steeped in timeless principles of leadership, but have meaning and relevance for today's business environment, as well as for the future.

From presidential protocol to meticulous project and event management, Peggy's expertise and exacting standards help today's executives navigate complexity with clarity and diplomatically defuse even the most sensitive issues with tact and positive outcomes.

Peggy is the author of “The President Will See You Now”, an intimate and affectionate memoir of President Ronald Reagan. The book offers behind-the-scenes stories, intimate moments and insights into one of America’s most beloved presidents. Her private observations and stories offer unparalleled perspectives of a political icon.

A graduate of California’s Pepperdine University with a degree in Organizational Communications and Business, Peggy enjoys the support of her husband and their four diverse and accomplished children.
