Discussion Panels

The Drexel Conference planning team is constantly seeking the most current and relevant speakers who pose thought-provoking questions and share their wisdom with attendees. This year is no exception as we have assembled two panels of amazing people to discuss two current topics.

Opening Panel - Learning is the New Pension
