Kickoff Keynote

Workday Rising kicks off with tennis legend Andre Agassi in conversation with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien. While Agassi is best known for how he changed the game of tennis, this talk focuses on the work he’s been doing ever since: from successful business ventures to a foundation that gives underserved youth access to a first-class education, both in Las Vegas and nationally. In this inspiring keynote, Agassi shares what it takes to make a big impact on the world and how he reinvented himself from a renowned athlete to a force for good in business and philanthropy.
