Founder and CEO of the nonprofit Khan Academy, Salman Khan, will be joining this years’ ICCA Global Hybrid Congress Experience as keynote speaker.
Salman Khan seeks to remove the barriers to education that leave over 600 million children lacking basic math and reading skills. His free, world-class curriculum—available to anyone, anywhere—has made a massive impact, with the academy’s videos reaching over a billion views.
In his keynote, Khan shares how we can revolutionize education with technology, open interaction, and a personalised approach to learning.
Recognised for his incredible influence in the field of education, Salman Khan has been profiled by 60 Minutes, featured on the cover of Forbes, and named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. His passion project, the Khan Academy, started humbly when he began tutoring his cousins and a few family friends in math. Today, the platform has more than 62 million registered users across 190 countries.
Khan is the second keynote speaker that ICCA presents for its Global Hybrid Congress Experience taking place from 1 – 3 november. Earlier this month ICCA introduced Bob Bejan, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President: Global Events, Production Studios and Marketing Community, as one of the keynote speakers.
In total there will be more than 150 speakers presenting and discussing at ICCA’s annual congress.
