Posted By Mike on May 1, 2012
Yesterday, The Maker was honored and interviewed at the 2012 Milken Institute Global Conference. Unfamiliar with the conference? Here's the description from MilkenInstitute.org:
"In 2012, the Milken Institute Global Conference will celebrate its 15th year. Since 1998, the Institute has been convening some of the world's most extraordinary people to explore solutions to today's most pressing challenges.
Set for April 29 through May 2 in Los Angeles, the 2012 Global Conference will bring together the diverse worlds of business, finance, policy, education, health, energy and philanthropy to come up with fresh solutions to the globe's biggest challenges. The Global Conference has become an important venue for thought leaders in a wide range of disciplines to present their views before a high-caliber audience with the resources to get things done. It's also an invaluable, informal setting to meet your peers and build new relationships.
Participants include hundreds of CEOs from the world's top-tier companies, senior foreign and U.S. government officials, leading figures in the global capital markets, forward-thinking academics, top journalists, and leaders in education, health care and philanthropy."
