And if you are not familiar with our Share the Vision program information is listed below.
The Sacramento Speakers Series is a community lecture series that provides an open forum for a free discussion of timely and important issues by nationally acclaimed speakers and patrons of the Series. It has been described as “an extraordinary community experience that gives our patrons an opportunity to hear about and question renowned and influential people from a wide variety of backgrounds on an even wider variety of topics.” The speakers are chosen on the basis of their career achievements, unique expertise in their particular field of endeavor, and ability to communicate their particular passion to the audience.
Through its “Share the Vision” program, the Sacramento Speakers Series provides high school students with an opportunity to learn about interesting and successful public figures, and to meet in a small group with the speaker before the event, followed by complimentary admission to the evening’s event at the Community Center.
Three amazing speakers will meet and talk with students in Share the Vision:
· MICHAEL MULLEN, Tuesday , 1/7/14: chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Bush and Obama
· ANDREW WEIL, Tuesday, 1/21/14: pioneer in health, wellness and integrative medicine
· JUDY SMITH, Tuesday, 2/13/14: crisis management expert, inspiration for the TV show Scandal
Pre-event reception: In a special reception before each event at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento, a small select group of students will gather for light refreshments and meet students from other participating schools and the Speakers Series moderator, then be joined by the evening’s speaker, where they will be able to ask their prepared questions and interact with interesting and successful public figures. The speaker will spend 15-20 minutes talking to the students and answering questions. The dialog between the students and speaker is unscripted.
Main event: At the conclusion of the reception, attendees will proceed next door to the Sacramento Community Theater for the evening’s event featuring the speaker. Students should dress business casual for this event.
