Select Your Celebrated Conversationalist for Virtual Event
Tickets are going fast for Morris Arts’ 12th Annual Great Conversations from Home, featuring leaders from the arts, media, tech, science, sports and more. This year, the event is a virtual Zoom event on October 8.
From the comfort of home, guests can converse with one of 28 luminaries such as an award-winning TV news correspondent, a scientist studying deadly diseases and pandemics, a 3D experimental visual light artist, a TV and movie set decorator, a prominent climate scientist, a symphony president, a celebrity chef, a former NY Jets president as well as innovators and leaders in business, finance, communications, tech, healthcare, law, pharma and real estate.
Each virtual table will feature a “host conversationalist” whose experiences will catalyze intriguing and memorable conversations. Guest can learn about their work, their thoughts on the world, their insights into their fields, and the experiences that shaped their lives. How did they get to where they are now? What lessons can they impart? Explore the connections between science and art or learn how fast one needs to run with the bulls in Spain. How does it feel to actually “beat Bobby Flay” or to meet seven presidents or attend 22 Super Bowls? Do basketball skills help a CEO navigate business decisions? This is an evening to ask questions, exchange ideas, learn, and to interact personally with fascinating and accomplished people. You may be surprised by what you discover.
At registration, guests select their top five conversationalist choices. Virtual table assignments are made on a first come, first serve basis.
