“Transform Tomorrow,” the three-day summit hosted by the Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network and the North Dakota Young Professionals Network, will provide young professionals from across the Great Plains with an opportunity to network and develop as professionals through a series of keynote addresses, breakout sessions with business professionals and social and service activities. The summit is open to anyone 21 and older.
Olympic gold medalist Stacy Dragila, a track and field pioneer who won the first-ever gold in women’s pole vault at the 2000 Sydney Games, will open the event May 30 with a keynote address in which she’ll share her history of trying a new sport and helping it rise to international prominence. Minot native Dale Brown, who led Louisiana State University to two men’s basketball Final Four appearances, tallied the second-most wins in Southeastern Conference history and is now a noted motivational speaker, will deliver a keynote speech May 31. Award-winning speaker, trainer and author Craig Valentine will cap the event June 1.
