NEIU ALUMNI: ALL ACCESS KEYNOTE AT THE GREEN BUSINESS CONFERENCE
Author, producer and broadcaster John St. Augustine and legendary broadcaster Bill Kurtis will deliver the keynote address during the full-day Green Business Conference at Northeastern Illinois University on April 4. St. Augustine and Kurtis are partners on “Earth Matters,” a series of vignettes on money, health, parenting and more that airs on WCPT-AM/FM in Chicago.
The keynote by St. Augustine and Kurtis will focus on issues related to the ripple effect of climate change on water, land and species. The keynote titled “Green Schools, Businesses, and Earth: It All Matters,” will serve as the latest installment of the NEIU Alumni: All Access series, which demonstrates the lifelong value of a Northeastern degree from the perspective of some of the University’s most successful and inspirational alumni.
St. Augustine (B.A. ’92 University Without Walls) is the best-selling author of “Every Moment Matters” and “Living An Uncommon Life.” He is also an award-winning producer and broadcaster whose credits include “The Dr. Oz Show” and SiriusXM satellite radio’s “Oprah and Friends.”
