Bill Gates Keynote Speaker

Bill Gates

Chairman of Microsoft and Philanthropist
Bill Gates' keynote career began shortly after he resigned as the CEO of Microsoft. Having founded the company and worked there since 1975, Gates made the decision to gradually shed his role at the company to focus on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which he and his wife founded in 2000.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which was heavily influenced by the philanthropic work of David Rockefeller, focuses its efforts on improving education and global health. Having been officially declared a billionaire by 1987, Gates was determined to put his wealth to good use.

With a particular dedication to global health, global development, disaster relief and agricultural development, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is often the topic of Bill Gate's keynote speeches. He discusses the foundation's success in treating those suffering from AIDS as well his strategies for improving America's education system.
