Plenary Speakers

Keynote Speaker

World-renowned saxophonist Branford Marsalis has always been a man of numerous musical interests, from jazz, blues and funk to such classical music projects as his Fall 2008 tour with Marsalis Brasilianos. The three-time Grammy winner has continued to exercise and expand his skills as an instrumentalist, a composer, and the head of Marsalis Music, the label he founded in 2002 that has allowed him to produce both his own projects and those of the jazz world’s most promising new and established artists.

The New Orleans native was born into one of the city’s most distinguished musical families, which includes patriarch/pianist/educator Ellis and Branford’s siblings Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason. Branford gained initial acclaim through his work with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and his brother Wynton’s quintet in the early 1980s before forming his own ensemble. He has also performed and recorded with a who’s-who of jazz giants including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and Sonny Rollins.

Libuse Binder is the author of Ten Ways to Change the World in Your Twenties. In her book, Binder provides a timely roadmap for individuals looking to make a difference — from eating locally and reducing waste, to starting a nonprofit organization or finding a career dedicated to helping others.

Binder provides up-to-date resources and ideas for the casually concerned and deeply passionate alike. By combining easy-to-follow suggestions with the stories of myriad Millennials already making a difference, she inspires people to find and follow their passions, and to believe in their ability to do good in the world today.

David G. Campbell, scientist, educator and author, joined the scientific staff of the New York Botanical Garden after earning a PhD at Johns Hopkins.

He is the author of The Ephemeral Islands: A Natural History of the Bahamas; The Crystal Desert: Summers in Antarctica; Islands in Space and Time, and most recently, A Land of Ghosts: The Braided Lives of People and the Forest in Far Western Amazonia. He is currently Professor of Biology at Grinnell College in Iowa.

Brian Wansink is the John S. Dyson Professor of Marketing and Consumer Behavior and the Director of the Cornell Food & Brand Lab in Cornell University's Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics & Management. He is the author of more than 100 academic articles and books, including his 2006 best-seller Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think. Wansink's award-winning academic research on food psychology and behavior change has been published in the world's top marketing, medical, and nutrition journals.
