About The Lavin Agency

“We have a remarkable team here, and one reason is that the staff is very diverse, politically and intellectually. I like people who want to contribute to the debate. At The Lavin Agency, what we're trying to do is add to the conversation, because great ideas often come from conflicting ideas that are looking for the truth. We're never going to find the truth, of course, but if we're trying to find it, chances are that things will be better today than they were last week. That's the quality—a searching quality—that is present in everyone who works here.

“One of the questions I ask potential employees is, Who do you think is underrated? I don't necessarily care what the answer is, but I do want to know that someone has a critical faculty and a passion they can articulate. That they have the ability to say, This idea is better than this idea—and here's why. A key aspect of working at The Lavin Agency is being able to say that we have a speaker who is better than these other speakers, for these specific reasons. If you are willing to go out on a limb for one speaker over another, and be willing to admit that you have taste and judgement and the ability to use them, then you're going to fit in here just fine!”
