    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    The business that you grow will only be as strong as the idea that started it. In this rare course with Brad Keywell—the serial entrepreneur behind brands like Uptake, Groupon, and Chicago Ideas—you’ll learn how to put your idea through its paces in order to expose its weaknesses and dysfunctions, and guarantee that the idea you build into a business is the strongest version possible.
