Speaker Series

BYP presents our Speaker Series (formerly Unplugged Series) which was launched in 2007 and provides a question/answer forum, giving BYPers up-close-and-personal exposure to decision makers and community leaders. The event is held in conjunction with the b|connected socials about 4 times a year. Each Speaker Series event is held after work hours (about 5:30-7:30 pm) at different locations around the Boise Metro area to promote a more relaxed and open environment. Past speakers include: former Governor of Idaho Cecil Andrus; former CEO of Micron Steve Appleton; CEO of St. Alphonsus Sandra Bruce; former CEO of Washington Group Steve Hanks, Olympian Kristin Armstrong, etc.
