This November, we’re rolling out our list of the 100 Most Influential People Right Now, highlighting some of the best — and certainly the boldest — leaders, thinkers and innovators who are doing great things for our city. And we’re certainly not stopping there. November 9th marks our annual ThinkFest 2017, presented by UnitedHealthcare, where some of the city’s brightest bosses will be on hand to speak about our city and what makes it great (and only getting better).

You might be asking yourself how can you get a sneak peek at the big list, or how to get your voice heard at this year’s ThinkFest conference. Here’s your answer: We’ve teamed up with Verizon to bring you the fourth installment of Do Philly Better, an October 24th event where our own BizPhilly editor, Fabiola Cineas, will host a conversation around the ever-evolving innovative landscape of Philadelphia (and, of course, the big fat question mark that is Amazon’s newest HQ) with some of its chief players, including Sylvie Gallier Howard, Anne Nevins and Allan Domb.

You’ll be able to get a close look at our list of 100 Most Influential Philadelphians and get an opportunity to jot down any questions you have for this year’s ThinkFest 2017 speakers — who will field those Qs on stage November 9th.

To join us, RSVP here and mark your calendar for 5:30-7:00 pm, Tuesday, October 24th at Verizon (1430 Walnut St., Center City).
