Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota (http://www.smumn.edu) will host its 10th annual Hendrickson Forum in Minneapolis on Tuesday, April 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. The event will feature a keynote address from Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor-in-chief of The Economist.
“Over the past 10 years the Hendrickson Forum has become a venue for thought-provoking discussion on ethical leadership,” said Audrey Kintzi, Saint Mary’s vice president for development and alumni relations who leads the Hendrickson Forum. “We are grateful to be part of a business community that is home to some of the world’s most influential and ethical leaders.”
The 2017 Hendrickson Forum, “What’s Next? Making Sense of a Global Economy,” will feature a keynote address and Q&A session with Minton Beddoes. In her address, she will shed light on President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office and discuss the interplay of democracy, demography, technology, energy, and government policies as the ultimate drivers of economic change. The event is open to the public and general admission tickets are $50 per person, which includes lunch. Advance registration is required.

Minton Beddoes will join a distinguished roster of former speakers: Jon Huntsman, Jr., James Stavridis, Sheila Bair, Ian Bremmer, Sue Gardner, Jacqueline Novogratz, Dr. Marcelo Suarez-Orozco, John Howard, and John Micklethwait. While the topics have varied by year, themes have centered on ethical business leadership in our increasingly global economy.
Julie Hendrickson, daughter of the Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership’s founder, says, “This event is a wonderful way to carry out my father’s legacy of ethical leadership. Learning is a lifelong process, and the conversations that take place at the Forum have a global impact. We’re pleased to mark this 10-year milestone and look forward to many more successful events in the years to come.”
