Each year, NETS and Yahoo! bring several of the field's most influential minds to discuss the issues they encounter and the discoveries they make. The Speaker Series is an invaluable opportunity to hear first-hand - and rub elbows with - these groundbreaking thinkers and entrepreneurs. Who knows? They could very well be your colleagues (or your competition) someday.
