WSB Speakers Take the Stage at #WSBinNYC

WSB hosted a terrific event in Times Square yesterday previewing 10 of our most exciting voices, including business speakers and visionaries, political experts and commentators, and leading innovators. We’ll be sharing the event videos soon, and invite you to check out some of the highlights and photos shared through our Twitter hashtag #WSBinNYC.

WSBinNYC would not have been possible without the partnerships of our host, Morgan Stanley and our sponsors, Hosts Global and International Limousine Service (ILS).

Emceed by Ron Insana, the event featured a wide array of some of WSB’s most sought-after talent doing what they do best: connecting with and informing an audience.

Attendees of the event responded positively, sharing their feedback of the diverse lineup of business speakers, innovators, authors, and political minds. Below is just some of the feedback we received immediately following the event:

What a great way to bring your roster to life – and all before lunch! Can’t wait to get back to work with so many relevant speaker ideas.

The panel was amazing! Very interesting and provocative discussion. Wish they had more time.

Great line up!! Really enjoyed it… I’d love to pitch some of these speakers

Great way to showcase the quality and variety of speakers that WSB can bring to an organization. Smart marketing and business development!
