Sarah Palin Makes First Visit to S. Korea wkf2011 l 2011.08.31

Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska and the Republican Party’s frontline female politician, will be making her very first visit to South Korea to attend the 2011 World Knowledge Forum (WKF 2011).

Palin first entered mainstream politics when she was named the Republican Party nominee for Vice President in the 2008 presidential election. Ever since, Palin has been the figurehead of grassroots conservative politics also known as the Tea Party Movement, which has been opening new scopes in US politics.

During the WKF, Sarah Palin will give a US leadership perspective on how to lead the world out of the latest crisis.

The 2011 WKF will be celebrating its 12th session this year under the theme of ‘New Crisis.’ Our distinguished guests - 250 global leaders from 40 countries around the world - will shine new light and shed insights on how to successfully navigate through the drastically altered global management environment following the global financial crisis.

Our list of illustrious speakers include current and former public officials - such as former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and European Commissioner for Trade Karel de Gucht - as well as the world-famous academics in the likes of Michael Sandel, Amy Chua, and Strobe Talbott. Our prominent mega business speakers also include Toshiba CEO Atsutoshi Nishida and Rio Tinto CEO Tom Albanese.
