Due to an injury, the presenter had to reschedule the event. New date is March 13, 2019 and a new ticketing link will be provided soon. If you are a current ticket holder and unable to attend, you will receive email notification with your options.

National Geographic Live speakers share their journeys of exploration from being on assignment around the world. Illustrated with award-winning photography and video, each evening concludes with a speaker-led audience Q&A session.

Join veteran National Geographic photographer Jodi Cobb on a whirlwind retrospective of a distinguished career spanning four decades. Known for breaking through barriers and going undercover to reveal hidden societies, Cobb captures fascinating glimpses of worlds such as Japan’s secret Geisha culture and the cloistered lives of Saudi Arabian women. Her landmark story “21st Century Slavery” exposed a wide range of human trafficking, generating more reader accolades than any other story up to that point in the Geographic’s 130-year history. Travel with this inspiring woman as she chronicles her public — and private — path from young photojournalist to world-renowned photographer.
