Message from the President


Dear Friends of MPSF Speaker Series,

 With renewed energy after the challenges presented by 2020, I welcome you to a VERY exciting 2021-2022 season! 

 Last year, many of our subscribers took advantage of a fully virtual season in compliance with pandemic health and safety guidelines. This season will kick off in October with three high-quality Zoom events, allowing a comfortable transition to four on-site events beginning in January 2022. 

 We are privileged and honored to open the new series with President Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States. Nicole Perlroth, award-winning cyber security journalist and author, brings us critical information on what President Biden calls our biggest threat to life, followed by Dambisa Moyo, one of today’s pre-eminent thinkers on strategic investments. Thomas Friedman,  “the country’s best newspaper columnist” does more than just report on complex issues shaping our world and Joel Sartore, photographs and documents endangered species and landscapes in order to show a world worth saving. Janet Napolitano, Former US Homeland Security Secretary, Governor of Arizona and president of the University of California, ranks as “one of the most powerful women in the world” and our final speaker, Niall Ferguson, is one of the world’s most prominent historians on global politics and economics.

 We have missed seeing all of you and look forward to a time when health and safety concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic are behind us. Meanwhile, we look forward to welcoming you as we meet the brilliant thinkers and leaders of the 2021-2022 speaker series. 

 Please join the MPSF Speaker Series subscriber community for the 2021-2022 Season, our 32nd!

Wishing you good health, I hope to see you on October 7th!

Jim Weil
