KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DAVID BROOKS
Our keynote speaker David Brooks is one of America’s most prominent political commentators. He writes a bi-weekly OpEd column for the New York Times. He is a regular analyst on PBS NewsHour and on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. David has a gift for bringing audiences face-to-face with the spirit of our times with humor, insight and quiet passion. David’s New York Times bestseller, The Road to Character, explores the road to a deeper inner life and explains why selflessness leads to greater success. In his most recent book, The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life, David explores the four commitments that define a life of meaning and purpose: to a spouse and family, to a vocation, to a philosophy or faith, and to a community. His previous books include The Social Animal, On Paradise Drive, and Bobos in Paradise. He worked at The Wall Street Journal for nine years and has written for The New Yorker, Forbes, The Washington Post, and many other periodicals.
