New York, NY (Vocus) April 23, 2010
The New York Forum (http://www.ny-forum.com), to be held on June 22 and 23 in New York City, today announced that Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Chairman and Publisher, The New York Times Company; David Needleman, CEO, JetBlue; Vikram Pandit, CEO, Citigroup; Robert Wolf, CEO, UBS Americas; and Cathie Black, President, Hearst Magazines joined the list of confirmed speakers for this first-of-its-kind gathering aimed at addressing the future of the global economy, including focusing on strategies to spur job creation and develop new business models.
“Some of the world’s foremost business leaders have recognized the urgency of the need to address critical questions facing the global business community and adjusted their schedules to attend,” said Richard Attias, the founder of the New York Forum. “We believe that this will be one of the most important gatherings of its kind, and will help the US and other countries to together come up with innovative solutions to the challenges we face in the global economy.”
The first annual New York Forum will bring together hundreds of international business leaders, entrepreneurs, sovereign fund managers, regulatory officials and academics for a series of results-oriented discussions, debates and dialogues, with a mission that is both bold and urgent: to reinvent business models, to stimulate job creation and restore faith in the international economy.
Strategic partners of The New York Forum include The New York Times, The Partnership for New York City and The Boston Consulting Group. Attali and Associates, under the direction of Jacques Attali, French economist, founding president of EBRD and President of Planet Finance, is a programming partner. The Center on Capitalism and Society, under the direction of Nobel Prize Winning Economist Edmund Phelps (2006) is partnering on parts of the program content.
At The New York Forum, high-profile CEOs, investors, and policy makers will lead plenary sessions, and participants will participate in smaller targeted task forces, led by the Boston Consulting Group. In a post-crisis world, The New York Forum recognizes the necessity to bring key leaders together in a collaborative environment to brainstorm viable solutions and identify opportunities to effect change across disciplines. A delegation from The Forum will present their findings to representatives of the G20, who are meeting the following week in Toronto.
