Wake Forest University and Guilford College have both announced the line-up for the upcoming 2023-24 seasons of their respective speaker series.
Wake Forest University's Face to Face Speaker Forum's third season kicks off in September and includes speakers such as businessman and star of ABC’s Shark Tank Daymond John and former Wyoming GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney.
Executive Director of the Face to Face Forum Sue Henderson says the appearance by Comedian Trevor Noah — scheduled to close out the third season in April 2024 — is getting the most hype.
"We get a lot of feedback when we announce our season," she says. "Our subscription sales are up year over year, so that speaks volumes for how season three is landing on the public."
The Guilford College Bryan Series also recently announced the program for its upcoming season under the theme “Heroes in Our Midst.” Speakers include Sully Sullenberger, the pilot known for landing a passenger plane safely on the Hudson River, and former PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff.
