Tate Lecture Series ticket holders get the first shot to buy tickets to hear Jeff, but I wonder if this has any connection to the news that the Wall Street Journal thinks Amazon is headed our way for sure for sure. I mean, Jeff Bezos could be coming here to just check out Whole Foods Market, as well as speak. Or, he could be checking the educational opportunities our city has to offer because we have SMU and the Bush Center right in our midst. Education, you recall, was one of the most important factors in Amazon’s search for a new headquarters: the company needs a lot of young, sharp brains, to supply tech talent to keep Amazon growing. The company plans to add 50,000 employees wherever it lands, over a 10 to 15 year time period. Those employees would be software developers and business minds. Hmmmm.

We are pleased to announce that SMU is partnering with the Bush Center’s Forum on Leadership to present Jeff Bezos, Chairman and CEO of Amazon.  This ticketed event will take place on Friday, April 20, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in Moody Coliseum on the SMU campus. Jeff Bezos is a visionary entrepreneur who exemplifies the type of world changer SMU is creating. We look forward to sharing his insight and perspective with the city of Dallas.
