Download Audio

If you happen to see New England Patriots new tight end Martellus Bennett, or sex talk guru Dr. Ruth Westheimer, walking around Boston, they're here for a reason.

They — and many more eclectic personalities in business, entertainment and sports — are guest speakers at the Forbes "Under 30" summit. Forbes puts out a list every year of what they call the world's brightest minds and entrepreneurs under the age of 30.

They'll be here to mingle, brag about their businesses and enjoy the young vibe and see some cultural sites such as a tour of Fenway Park.

Dan Koh, chief of staff to the city of Boston — and a millennial himself — joined Morning Edition to talk about the conference.

This segment aired on October 18, 2016.
