RALEIGH, N.C. - Oct. 10, 2017 - PRLog -- Saint Mary's School's Board of Visitors will convene for its annual meeting, Friday, Oct. 13, 2017, from 7:30-9 a.m., on the school's downtown Raleigh campus at 900 Hillsborough Street.

Saint Mary's Board of Visitors was created to establish an annual venue for the exchange of ideas regarding the future of education in this nation, specifically, the education of girls and young women. By convening an annual meeting of accomplished business professionals and civic leaders, Saint Mary's School gains fresh insights from those outside the school and stays abreast of national and global trends. The annual dialogue informs the school's ongoing work with students.

This year's keynote speaker is Brooks Bell, founder and CEO of Brooks Bell, Inc., and co-founder of HQ Raleigh and ThinkHouse Raleigh.

A recognized thought leader in analytics and entrepreneurship, Bell has been featured in publications including Inc. Magazine, Forbes, TheWashington Post, and Techonomy. Most recently, Bell spoke at the Democratic National Convention and has moderated events for former President Bill Clinton, venture capitalist Chris Sacca, and Chelsea Clinton. A native of Alaska, Bell earned her B.A. from Duke University. She serves on the board of WalkFree.org, the largest movement in the world dedicated to ending modern slavery. She has also served as president of the Entrepreneurs Organization and as a board member of the Digital Analytics Association and Raleigh Chamber of Commerce.
