Our past speakers have included business owners, journalists, philanthropists, activists, politicians, political advisors, athletes, coaches, lawyers, film producers, and even an Oscar nominee.

Each speaker has shared a unique perspective on what it means to lead, and how students can strive to make an impact, now and in the future.
