Give Me 5!

Give Me 5! is an opportunity for young innovators to spend five minutes speaking one-on-one with a global leader. These unique face-to-face encounters take place in public view with no microphones, allowing the conversation to be seen but not heard. However, it doesn’t end when the clock runs down. A Give Me 5! talk often leads to much more for both innovator and leader, because five minutes can change the world.
