Leveraging Inexperience

From Leveraging Inexperience to Infusing Work with Purpose

— June 9, 2015 — Keynote Trends
Commencement addresses usually bring out many heavy weight names when it comes to who delivers the graduation speech to a new class of hopefuls entering the 'real world.' 2015 did not disappoint, from President Barack Obama and the First Lady of the United States to the actor who played Andy Bernard on The Office (the multi-talented Ed Helms).

As is common with commencement addresses, many of the keynotes focused on the theme of education, including the one award-winning author and renowned feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie gave to the class of 2015 at Wellesley College. Natalie Portman spoke at her alma mater on leveraging inexperience, while Kanye West discussed self-deprecating honors. From the tech world, Tim Cook and Elizabeth Holmes offered wisdom. Other notable speakers include Samantha Power and David Muir.
