C’mon…we all love watching Homeland, The Following, The Americans and Political Animals, but wouldn’t you rather hear some straight talk rather than Hollywood’s version of what’s going on in the world? If so, then get ready for a fascinating, inside look at some of the world’s most challenging issues, this March 6 and 7th, 2013 when the World Affairs Council brings its annual conference to the St. Regis San Francisco.

Join Fareed Zakaria GPS, Host of CNN’s flagship foreign affairs show, John Steinbruner, Director of Center for International and Security Studies, Chris Anderson, Co-founder 3DRobotic and dozens of other experts who will share their thoughts on what’s going on in the world today and what may happen in the future.

You might not have time to get a PHD but who doesn’t have two days to engage in stimulating conversations and inspiring stories? Brain-tempting topics include everything from the changing role of women in Islamic countries, the Maker Revolution, international security, climate change, to the global economy (always good for a heated debate).

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking with Bay Area mover and shakers who are developing and implementing innovative solutions that address worldwide social, environmental and economic challenges.

Hurry and buy your tickets because this is sure to be standing room only.
