The trio of speakers, who represent diverse and thought-provoking points of view on the event's topics - Health, Wealth and Happiness - will follow a discussion, by Charlie Kirk and Tom Lewis, on Human Enlightenment on Wednesday, February 8 from 7 to 9 p.m.


"If you value our freedoms - especially free speech and free markets and the free enterprise system that is the foundation of the American Dream - you will find this event be a timely and passionate 'meeting of the minds' of these thought leaders," said Kim Kiyosaki, CEO of The Rich Dad Company. "These principles are at the core of our democracy and worth exploring, discussing - and fighting for."

Kiyosaki, an entrepreneur, investor, and educator, has challenged and changed the way millions of people around the world think about money. He is a past speaker from Barrett, the Honors College and will share key insights on wealth with the audience.


Dennis Prager, founder of PragerU and host of a nationally syndicated radio show for the last 25 years, is also author of 10 bestselling books including Happiness Is a Serious Problem. Prager will share key insights on happiness.


Dr. Radha Gopalan is a renowned and board-certified heart transplant cardiologist, an expert in Western and Eastern medicine. Dr. Gopalan will share his unique and powerful perspective on health and wellness. He is a past speaker from Barrett, the Honors College and will share key insights on health.


"The topics of health, wealth and happiness are so intertwined," said Kiyosaki, in addressing the evening's topic and its significance. He added: "Wealth cannot buy health or happiness... and amassing wealth without the ability to enjoy it in good health or find the happiness we all seek can be a hollow victory. Striving for all three... that's the path to a rich life..."


Tickets are free for university, college and high school students and may be obtained on the day of the event at the Gammage Box Office. Each student will receive one ticket when they present their student identification. Gammage Auditorium is located at 1200 S. Forest Ave. in Tempe.


General admission tickets ranging from $20 to $50 and $250 VIP tickets, which include a reception with the speakers from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. the day of the event on the Promenade at Gammage Auditorium, are available online. In addition to the reception, VIP ticketholders get early access to the venue and parking, as well as front row seating. Proceeds from ticket sales will support the T.W. Lewis Center for Personal Development.


"The Lewis Center, housed in Barrett, The Honors College at ASU, hosts over 30 speaker programs and 30 workshops per year, but until now those events have only been available to Barrett Honors College students," said Ann Atkinson, Executive Director of the Lewis Center and a Barrett alumna.


"This unprecedented event is a Lewis Center speaker program, but on a bigger stage so the public can benefit from the extraordinary points of view of these speakers," she said. Atkinson also stated, "This program will bring some of the nation's thought leaders and subject matter experts together to discuss and dissect the important topics of health, wealth, and happiness."


The T.W. Lewis Center was established in 2019 with the goal of preparing students for the challenges and opportunities of life. The center's pillars are happiness and purpose, personal finance and entrepreneurship, and success and leadership.


To accomplish its objectives, the Lewis Center provides innovative courses, workshops, and a speaker series focused on self-awareness (behaviors, values, strengths), personal values and character development, leadership and entrepreneurship, decision-making and risk-taking, career planning, success and happiness. Many of the center's speaker programs, workshops, and honors courses address personal finance, happiness, and wellness.
