Businessman, author, army veteran, and philanthropist Wes Moore has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at Black Enterprise’s 2015 Entrepreneur’s Summit. Taking place May 13-18, Moore brings his inspirational business expertise to Georgia’s Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
After appearances on Oprah, Meet the Press, Real Time with Bill Maher, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, Moore is the current host of Beyond Belief. Airing on Oprah’s OWN Network the show spotlights mysteries and miracles of everyday people from around the globe. Moore’s New York Times best-selling book, The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates, chronicles a real-life miracle from his own world. Sharing conversations with an imprisoned man also named Wes Moore, the book tells the story of two strangers with similar backgrounds from the same Baltimore neighborhood.
Having walked drastically different paths, one became a Rhodes Scholar, John Hopkins graduate and decorated war veteran, while the other is currently serving a life sentence for committing a robbery that ended with the murder of an off-duty police officer. “The smallest decisions can make us go one way or the other,” he said, while speaking to students Tuesday at Fayetteville State University. “We need to find what sets our hearts on fire. We don’t want to tell people what to think. We want them to think.”
Black Enterprise is excited to have Wes Moore speak at the 20th Annual Entrepreneur’s Summit this May.
