Ten Years Hence
The Ten Years Hence speaker series explores issues, ideas, and trends likely to
affect business and society over the next decade. Students, faculty and the community
use guest speaker comments as a springboard for structured speculation about emerging
issues and the next ten years.
Ten Years Hence is sponsored by the O'Brien-Smith Leadership Program made possible
by a generous endowment from William H. O'Brien (ND '40) and his wife, Dee.
The program is named after their respective parents. The O’Brien-Smith Program endowment
provides an opportunity for students and faculty to interact with distinguished
leaders from business, government, and non-profit sectors.
