Milken?

To use (again) a quote from BB King, "the beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you." I have been extremely disappointed in the quality of continuing education in my field of work. Most of the courses and designations are geared around being a money maker through mass attendance and offer merely elementary topics. This year i am excited to attend the Milken Institutes's 2009 Global Conference. I'm most excited to hear lectures from and meet: Keith Ferrazzi (author of Never Eat Alone), Steve Forbes of Forbes Inc, Michelle Gass -Executive VP Marketing at Starbucks, Jonah Goldberg columnist LA Times, Jim Goodnight CEO of SAS, Robert Hormats of Goldman Sachs, and Jon Huntsman Governor of Utah... to name a few.
