18-21 April 2017
The IACBE is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for our 20th anniversary Annual Conference and Assembly Meeting will be Jennifer (Jen) Kushell, Founder and CEO of Your Success Now (YSN).
Jennifer has been a relentless advocate for young leaders and entrepreneurs since her first year in college. As a child, she would pack all of her clothes in suitcases pretending to be a jetsetter. Since then, she has visited 50 countries and logged over 2 million miles in her lifelong quest to help young people fulfill their potential. Building YSN into a global resource for the billion young people entering the workforce is her dream in the making.
Jen is a global thought leader, is the author of the New York Times Best Seller Secrets of the Young & Successful, and has been called the “Career Doctor” by Cosmopolitan and a “guru” by U.S. News & World Report. She is a celebrated speaker and has appeared in front of more than 300 million people throughout the world via major media outlets such as CNN, CNBC, BBC, NPR, PBS, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fortune, USA Today, BusinessWeek, Entrepreneur, and Cosmopolitan.
As a frequent delegate of several U.S. State Department entrepreneurship missions, a youth advisor for the UN’s Sustainable Development Committee, an advisor to top global youth organizations, and a Trustee of the Global Youth Empowerment Fund, Jen is on a mission to impact the lives and futures of young people everywhere.
Please join us for Jen’s keynote address at our 20th anniversary awards luncheon on Thursday, April 20. We look forward to seeing you there.
