The Platform 8.0 Impact Session

Also, with this Edition, there will be a special Impact Session, a further platform designed to give the speakers more time to communicate their concepts amongst a conscious minority. Here, thought concepts will come as specific and deliberate answers to questions that would provoke thought in that direction. This master class would be further buoyed by an exclusive audience with the savvy.

The speakers include Jared Cohen, the Director of Ideas at Google Inc.; Sam Graham-Felsen, strategic advisor and key member of President Barack Obama’s online campaign team; Anand Giridharadas, a columnist for The New York Times and its global edition, the International Herald Tribune; and Sarah Lucy, a senior editor at TechCrunch.com, the largest blog on tech entrepreneurship in the world.
