The Walker Speaker Series
The George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology Speakers Series is a forum
where global corporate leaders and opinion makers who impact our world come to share
their leadership journey while speaking to the challenges and opportunities evident
in their organization and our world. The success of the speaker series has been significant
in its impact on our students, faculty, alumni and the community. But more importantly,
it has brought to the forefront issues pertaining to change, innovation, transformation
The audience that regularly enjoys these presentations in person is diverse in its composition and demographics. It is made up of Webster students, faculty, administrators, alumni and the St. Louis community at large. Because of Webster's global presence as an institution of higher learning, we also ensure that our speaker series extends far beyond the immediate vicinity of our home campus in St. Louis. Each presentation is videotaped then made available to all Webster campuses worldwide and to a wider audience via social media.
The Walker Speaker Series has become a stage for leaders of substance to speak to the next generation and to offer their perspectives on the issues, the challenges and the opportunities that affect us all. Since its inception, we have welcomed to our campus corporate luminaries from such organizations as Wal-Mart, AT&T, Anheuser-Busch, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Monsanto, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Twitter, Hanes, Komen Foundation, 7-Eleven, GM, Disney and Scottrade.
Please take a moment to view some of these powerful addresses.
