World Leaders Forum to Take Place Next Week

WLF General Petraeus

Judson University will host the next World Leaders Forum on Nov. 5, 2021. Headlining the event is foreign policy expert and retired General David Petraeus. Originally scheduled as the 2020 keynote speaker, Petraeus will mark the return of the World Leaders Forum and its 10th anniversary. Notably serving as commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and later director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Petraeus is among the most recognized military leaders of the post-9/11 era. Distinguished Judson University alumnus Mark Vargas, who met Petraeus while serving as a civilian in Iraq, will moderate a Q&A session with the general.

The 2021 World Leaders Forum will be held in again in Schaumburg at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel.

A VIP reception will be held prior to the event at 5 p.m. with appetizers, networking, and meet-and-greet opportunities with General Petraeus.
