We all admire the type--those visionary doers and thinkers who, by approaching an old problem from a new perspective, change their respective fields forever. But what does it take to become a game-changer in business or politics, medicine or the movie industry?

This event brought back to campus a group of notable Brown alumni whose liberal education experiences have influenced their intellectual, personal, and professional development in unexpected ways—and who have, as a result, changed their worlds for the better. With two powerful Faculty voices and an inspiring Student speaker, our event offered an exciting and inspiring day of talks.

This event took place on October 20, 2012, Granoff Center, Brown University.
