Summit Luminary Speaker: Salman Kahn

Salman Kahn
The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit organization with the lofty goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone, anywhere.

Since their inception in 2006, Kahn Academy has made good on that mission by delivering more than 230 million views of its archive of free educational videos in subjects ranging from organic chemistry to art history to macroeconomics.

We’re honored to welcome the founder and Executive Director of Kahn Academy, Salman Kahn, as a featured speaker for Adobe Summit this year. In 2012, Time magazine named Khan in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. We can’t wait to hear what he has to share with us.

Salman Kahn’s 2011 TED talk is below, but to see him live in action you’ll have to come to Summit!

Become a Master of Marketing Disruption at Summit

Dr Jeff Dyer Can you learn to be more innovative? Dr. Jeff Dyer thinks so.

Jeff Dyer, lead author of the business bestseller, The Innovator’s DNA, will be sharing his insights into how to become a more innovative marketer at Summit this year.

In his session “Mastering the five disruptive skills of marketing innovators,” he will share the five key skills of disruptive innovators and give you actionable insights into making a more innovative environment in your own workplace.

This is an inspiring Summit session that should go on every attendee’s must-see list, but you won’t be able to learn from Dr. Dyer if you’re not there.

So to master marketing disruption, register for Summit 2013 today, and we’ll see you in Salt Lake City!
