The first on Monday will be a “FastTalk” session moderated by QuestMark founder Bill Bratton, based on Fearsome Fives, his inspirational organizational podcast. The second on Tuesday will be led by Joy Letzig, education advisor to the Foundation, and Leah Remington, global head of business operations at the Quartz Education Group at Bloomberg.
