Michael B. Horn, Keynote SpeakerThis one and one-half day Conference begins with an examination of higher education as seen through the lens of innovation by Michael B. Horn, co-founder and Distinguished Fellow of the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation. He delivered a remarkable keynote address at the 2013 Conference and this year will bring fresh insight to Arizona's postsecondary education system. Hear his discussion with Arizona leaders regarding his comments and perspective.

Arizona, like many states, is seeking to increase the proportion of the working-age population who hold quality certificates and postsecondary degrees. Anthony Carnevale's work projects that in 2018, 61% of all jobs in Arizona will require some postsecondary training beyond high school. Achieve60AZ, a grass roots group receiving support from many sources, has been established to coordinate and drive this work forward. Join us and learn what is new today and what Arizona's postsecondary education future holds.
