Day 2 of the Skollar Summit is kicking off downstairs as we speak, and Skoll World Forum delegates are starting to roll in. Before we dive into the excitement of the Forum, we’d be remiss not to recognize the incredible dinner hosted by our friends at the Skoll Foundation last evening at Christ Church. (Think Harry Potter).
A bit of a surreal evening – with social entrepreneutship “celebrities” at every turn. Great evening of celebrating and networking among the Skollar alumni community, the extended family from the Jeff Skoll Group, the Skoll Foundation team, the Skoll Awardees and others.
Top two highlights, without a doubt:
1) Archbiship Desmond Tutu saying grace before dinner in front of the great portraits of Christ Church. A little bit of history right there!
2) The 2011 Skollars had a chance to meet and connect with Jeff Skoll for the first time. Good looking crew, no?!
T-minus 4 hours til the Forum offically opens! Onward!
