Anderson Cooper is the anchor of CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360°, a nightly newscast that goes beyond the headlines – keeping politicians and policy makers honest with in-depth reporting and investigations.

Since the start of his career in 1992, Cooper has covered nearly all major news events around the world, often reporting from the scene. Most recently, he has extensively covered the conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Egypt, the riots in Baltimore, MD and Ferguson, MO, Pope Francis’s U.S. visit and the terror attack at Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Cooper has also played a pivotal role in CNN’s political and election coverage. He has anchored from conventions and moderated several presidential debates and town halls. In addition to his shows on CNN Cooper is also a regular correspondent for CBS’s 60 Minutes.

"The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son Talk about Life, Love, and Loss," a collection of correspondence between Anderson and his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, was published April 2016. "Dispatches from the Edge," Cooper’s memoirs about covering wars and disasters, topped the New York Times' bestseller list and other bestseller charts.

Cooper graduated from Yale University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. He also studied Vietnamese at the University of Hanoi. Cooper is based in New York City.

Learning 2016 takes place October 23-26 in Orlando, FL. It is produced by The Learning CONSORTIUM, a collaborative of 200 global corporations, focused on improving workplace learning and training.
