“The focus of ’Out of the Question’ is true conversation, involving our guest speakers and audience members,” said Warren Strugatch, a writer and business strategist. “Last year I was struck during the presidential campaign and election by how impoverished and devoid of true interaction the national conversation had become. My job is to bring the news-makers and thought leaders together and ask the first questions. My guests pick up the conversational ball and toss it among themselves and the audience. Together we share perspectives, expand awareness and hopefully produce conversations that engage, inspire and even make us smile.”
Tickets are $15.
