Last week, we announced the Purpose-Driven Speaker Series, which begins in July and lasts throughout the year. This speaker series will feature bestselling authors and thought leaders in digital technology, including Simon Sinek and MIT's Andrew McAfee, who will focus on how companies can become truly social and collaborative organizations. The series is inspired by the premise that people can reach higher and achieve more when they have a shared understanding and a common purpose. Please consider registering for the first session to be held in New York on July 11th. For updates on this speaker series, please join the mailing list and follow the speaker series on Facebook.
