JET Talks: A Call for Speakers

JET Talks is a new JETAADC series modeled after TED Talks that will feature dynamic and interesting individuals to inspire innovative ideas and conversation on Japan within the DC community.  Our first event — a showing of the documentary film, LIVE YOUR DREAM: The Taylor Anderson Story followed by a panel discussion with the director of the film — was a great success and we are busy planning our next event. We plan to host one event each quarter, but we need your help! Please complete this brief survey to share your JET Talks speaker wish list and more.

Thanks,
