Nusrat Durrani, A Pioneering Media Executive, Joins Denver Frederick
I have the great pleasure to bring you change makers each week who strive to create social good around issues such as poverty, gender equity, hunger, education, and disease. Tonight, you’ll meet someone who looks at these issues from a slightly different and very interesting perspective. He is Nusrat Durrani, a pioneering media executive, creator of some of MTV’s most iconic programs, and champion of radical change for social impact.
Jeffrey Walker, Chairman of New Profit and Co-author of The Generosity Network, Joins Denver Frederick
If I were to describe my next guest, the words I would use would be curious, eclectic, collaborative, and mindful. Those are wonderful attributes to have when you’re looking to identify some new ways to solve some very old social problems. He has been an executive with JPMorgan Chase, teaches at the Harvard Kennedy School, and has served or is serving as a chairman of more nonprofit boards than you can count– places like the Quincy Jones Music Consortium, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, and New Profit. He is Jeffrey Walker, who is all of the above and so much more.
Katy Clark, President of the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Joins Denver Frederick
There are few performing arts institutions in New York outside of Manhattan that have a national reputation, and there are fewer still whose name is recognized and revered across the globe. But one of those would be the Brooklyn Academy of Music, commonly known as BAM. And it’s a pleasure to have with us tonight, the President of BAM, Katy Clark.
David Wish, the Founder and CEO of Little Kids Rock, Joins Denver Frederick
My next guest believes that we are all innately musical. He also believes, like so many of us, that the way music education has disappeared from many of our public schools is tragic. But unlike many of us, he’s done something about it. At first, with 30 first graders, and now he has helped restore and revitalize music education for more than 650,000 low-income children across the country. He is David Wish, the Founder and CEO of Little Kids Rock. Good evening Dave, and welcome to The Business of Giving.
