Speaker Bio

America's mania for early measurable achievement -- grades, SAT scores, the "right" college admission, the perfect first job -- is causing more harm to society and individuals than good. Forbes publisher and futurist Rich Karlgaard explains how this came to be, and why it runs counter to both science and deeper human truths. Karlgaard shares findings from his 2019 book, Late Bloomers: The Power of Patient in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement.
