Nicholas Kristof  KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Nicholas Kristof is a journalist with the New York Times. How good do you really have to be, to be christened the reporter’s reporter…by other reporters? You have to be Nicholas Kristof – good. After working in France, Kristof began backpacking in Africa and Asia, writing articles to cover his expenses. He’s lived on four continents, reported on six, and traveled to more than 150 countries. During his travels, he has caught malaria, experienced wars, confronted warlords, encountered an Indonesian mob carrying heads on pikes, and survived an African airplane crash. Kristof not only managed to survive and press on, he’s also won two Pulitzers in the process — advocating human rights and giving a voice, to the voiceless.
