For Jeanne Meserve, homeland security isn’t theoretical. It is personal. She was on the ground in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and was the first to report the catastrophic flooding in the Ninth Ward. Her experience covering all aspects of national security has made her a recognized expert in the field.

From biosecurity to cyber security, from transportation agencies to intelligence agencies, Meserve speaks with passion and authority about what the country must do to defend itself, and what citizens and businesses can do to prepare. Her ascent from radio reporter in Bangor, Maine, to award-winning anchor and correspondent at ABC News and CNN has given her keen insight into the news business and honed her skills as an expert interviewer and moderator. A natural storyteller with a sense of humor, Meserve both entertains and informs.

Risk and Frisk

Millions of dollars have been spent in the name of homeland security since the September 11th attacks. Jeanne Meserve uses vivid examples from her decade covering the issue to examine whether money has been spent wisely, where vulnerabilities remain and what America has lost and gained in the process. She also looks forward to suggest how we might do more in a time of less.

Can You Hear Me Now?

More than a decade after the September 11th attacks and more than five years after Hurricane Katrina, surveys show that only a small percentage of Americans have taken even rudimentary steps to prepare themselves and their families for emergencies. Jeanne Meserve examines why and asks how government and community leaders can more effectively communicate with the public before, during and after an emergency.

“We greatly appreciate your fantastic leadership of the IWF Executive Development Roundtable in Vancouver. The participants responded with overwhelming strong and positive feedback, with the program being rated 100% excellent overall!”
Heath Nash, International Women’s Forum

“From the very beginning of our engagement with Jeanne she listened to our program goals, offered creative insight and counsel on the flow and operation of the program and did all of the preparation necessary to make sure she was fully informed for our keynote speakers and panelists. The result was an absolutely stellar program. Her professionalism, preparation, and personality brought our program to a whole new level of quality.”
Rich Cooper, US Chamber of Commerce Foundation

“The World Health Organization launched its Global TB Report 2012 in Washington, D.C. and worked with Jeanne to develop a dynamic format for the press conference. Instead of having multiple presentations, Jeanne moderated a vibrant panel discussion on the new data among senior officials from the World Health Organization, U.S. Agency for International Development, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, and President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. She was at ease with the highly technical subject matter, and kept the session fluid and engaging. Her expert style and star power helped us ensure that the event was well-attended and favorably covered by top media. Feedback from our panelists and audience members was uniformly positive.”
Philip Coticelli, The Coticelli Group

"Jeanne Meserve was an excellent anchor for our talk show on tuberculosis and HIV. Jeanne brought in her great experience with making challenging topics clear and accessible to large audiences. Also, she was able to bring into the conversation a variety of guests with very different backgrounds, while ensuring their contributions were balanced and fit cohesively with the narrative and format of the show. We look forward to working with Jeanne again and having her as our media champion in the fight against tuberculosis.”
Vittorio Cammarota, World Health Organization

“In the years following the attacks of September 11, Jeanne’s provocative and compelling news stories brought the audience into some of the country’s most important counterterrorism operation centers and alongside the men and women charged with protecting the homeland from al-Qaeda. Her unique experience as a respected veteran journalist combined with her creative storytelling ability made her the perfect choice to lead a workshop with BAE Systems’ communications team on how to build successful relationships with reporters and pitch unique and interesting stories. Using the moderating and interviewing skills she mastered in her career, Jeanne challenged our team to think more creatively when formulating story ideas and to prepare for difficult yet practical, questions.”
Brian Roehrkasse, BAE System
