Join Us This Fall: October 7, 2019
Join us for BestPrep’s Educational Forum on October 7, 2019 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. This biennial event provides an opportunity for more than 800 guests, students, sponsors, and supporters to enjoy an intriguing keynote address and discussion surrounding national and global issues affecting our local education systems and businesses.
The 2019 Educational Forum will feature keynote speaker Thomas Friedman, three-time Pulitzer Prize winning author and New York Times foreign affairs columnist. Friedman will discuss 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 will be joined on-stage by Best Buy Chairman and CEO, Hubert Joly, and event emcee, Roshini Rajkumar, for a lively on-stage dialogue.
In conjunction with the Educational Forum, BestPrep will hold a student essay competition in partnership with Thomson Reuters, and one of the students will read their essay on stage during the program.
