Jeff Immelt (Exclusively WSB)

From the time he took the reins at General Electric, Jeff Immelt understood that in order to remain competitive, the company needed to do two things: innovatively leverage technologies that would allow GE and their customers to achieve leaps in productivity, and enter faster-growing markets around the world at scale. He succeeded at both, transforming GE from an industrial titan into the first digital industrial one by building a strong digital platform and establishing leadership in the Industrial Internet. He also greatly expanded the company’s global presence—today, more than 60% of its revenue comes from outside the U.S. In this engaging presentation, Immelt explains how to build a digital, global company that can withstand change and foster sustainable growth.

Jeff Immelt (Exclusively WSB)

As the former President and CEO of GE Healthcare, Jeff Immelt has long believed that healthcare must be married to technology. He understands the major dynamics of today’s marketplace: the desire to better link consumers and providers, the rising costs as people live longer, and the increasing need for payment reform. He articulates how these are further complicated by political instability and regular disruption. Immelt offers audiences unparalleled insight into the future of the industry—and explains how decisions made in Washington will impact business writ large.  

Ron Insana (Exclusively WSB)

The telegraph, the telephone, the ticker tape, radio. TV and internet, AI and algorithms, have all been financed by Wall Street but have also profoundly affected the financial markets over the last century. And the pace of technological change is rapidly increasing and will likely have the most profound impact on financial markets in Wall Street history in the very near term.

It is ironic that the center of the financial universe, historically the provider of capital to disruptors, is in the midst of historic disruption itself.From the introduction of High Frequency Trading, enabled by ultra-high speed computing power, to the introduction of highly complex products, to automated advisory services, to new exchanges that use block-chain technology to speed transactions to a pace never seen before.

These massive changes challenge legacy financial firms who fail to adopt new technologies and adapt to a revolutionary new landscape. How do firms embrace change, utilize new technological tools and jump to the forefront of this latest technological revolution to enhance the client/company relationship and to meaningfully enhance results for the investors who rely on Wall Street to help them finance their ambitions, meet their daily financial needs and plan for an ever-increasing number of golden years for which they seek safety and security.

CNBC’s Ron Insana explores how the latest changes in technology can be harnessed, and not just financed by, Wall Street to prepare itself to interact with a new generation of investors who expect an entirely new level of service and success as their financial futures require.

Walter Isaacson (Exclusively WSB)

Based on his best-selling book, Steve Jobs, Isaacson shares with audiences the riveting story of the roller-coaster life and intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing and digital publishing. At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the 21st century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Isaacson takes audiences on the journey over the past two years in writing the book and the story about the man himself which is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership and values. Jobs put nothing off limits for Isaacson when working on the book, encouraging the people he knew to speak honestly, and  speaks candidly himself, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes and colleagues provided Isaacson an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry and compulsion for control that shaped Jobs’ approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

Walter Isaacson (Exclusively WSB)

In this presentation from his book, The Innovators, which is destined to be the standard history of the digital revolution and a guide to how innovation really works, Walter Isaacson tells the story of the people who created the computer and the Internet.  What talents allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their disruptive ideas into realities? What led to their creative leaps? Why did some succeed and others fail? Isaacson begins with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron’s daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s and explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution, such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page. He tells the story of how their minds worked, what made them so creative and how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative.  For an era that seeks to foster innovation, creativity, and teamwork, Isaacson reveals to audiences how these renowned figures actually made it happen.
