Catch the great keynote speakers at the Salesforce Higher Ed Summit

One of our favorite parts of each years’ Higher Ed Summit is the incredible roster of keynote speakers. Luckily, 2019’s Summit may be the best yet!

This year, you can hear from legendary NBA player turned business executive and philanthropist, Earvin “Magic” Johnson. He’ll be presenting his inspiring story that’s touched everywhere from the sporting world to the charitable sector.

Another great session will be delivered by author Tara Westover. She’ll share her one-of-a-kind journey that brought her to graduate with a Ph.D. from Cambridge University and a visiting fellowship at Harvard. She’ll discuss her new book, Educated, which became a #1 international bestseller.

McRaven, who served as Commander of U.S. Special Forces Command from 2011-2014 and Commander of U.S. Joint Special Operations Command from 2008-2011, among other executive positions.
