BestPrep’s Educational Forum

Thanks for attending the Educational Forum on October 7!

The Educational Forum is a biennial event that provides an opportunity for 1,000 guests, students, sponsors, and supporters to enjoy a motivational and educational keynote address and discussion surrounding national and global issues affecting our local education systems and businesses.

The 2019 Educational Forum occurred on October 7, 2019 and featured keynote speaker Thomas Friedman, three-time Pulitzer Prize winning author and New York Times foreign affairs columnist. Friedman discussed concepts he addresses in his latest bestseller, Thank You For Being Late, where he offers a blueprint for overcoming the challenges of the twenty-first century.

Following the keynote, Friedman was joined on-stage by Best Buy Executive Chairman, Hubert Joly, and event emcee, Roshini Rajkumar, for a lively on-stage dialogue.
