Lexington, Massachusetts (PRWEB) December 03, 2015
Falk Marques Group, producer of the acclaimed Women’s Private Equity Summit and publisher of the groundbreaking weekly e-Newsletter Women’s PE Briefs, today announced another industry breakthrough, PE Vision Summit: Private Equity’s Next Conversation, to be held February 3-5, 2016 at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami, Fla. A leadership conference limited to LPs and GPs at the managing director and partner level, the PE Vision Summit is uniquely different from other industry events. The “by invitation” format ensures that only the most senior-level industry leaders will be in attendance. The agenda focuses on big ideas, game-changing trends and critical issues facing firm leadership. Also, in a dramatic departure from the typical industry gathering, PE Vision Summit will include a balanced composition of women and men, both as speakers and attendees.
No More “Male-Dominated Panels” at PE Vision Summit
“In the eight years since we launched the Women’s Private Equity Summit, women have made great strides in the field,” observes Falk Marques Group Founder and Managing Director Beth Falk. “They are GPs starting or running firms, and LPs investing billions in private equity and other alternatives. But, when you see the lineup of speakers at other industry conferences, it’s basically ‘men on panels.’ PE Vision Summit changes the face of the industry by introducing a new generation of conferences — with men and women in equal representation on the dais and in the audience,” says Falk.
Top Keynoters From Private Equity, Government and Academia
PE Vision Summit will feature a roster of powerhouse speakers from the worlds of private equity, venture capital and beyond. Confirmed speakers include: Joseph E. Stiglitz, Nobel Prize Laureate in Economics; Professor, Columbia University; Susan J. Carter, Senior Advisor, Commonfund Capital; Henry R. Kravis, Co-Founder, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO, KKR; Kim Y. Lew, Co-CIO, Carnegie Corporation of New York; Seth Magaziner, General Treasurer, State of Rhode Island; Catherine A. Crockett, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Grove Street Advisors; Tom Tull, CIO, Texas ERS; and Kelly M. Williams, Senior Advisor, GCM Grosvenor.

Summit Program: World Issues, Industry Strategies and Leadership Challenges
Summit speakers will engage participants in substantive conversations about issues of lasting consequence. “The conference tagline ‘Private Equity’s Next Conversation’ really defines what the PE Vision Summit is all about,” says Falk. “Private equity leaders need a forum for debating what comes next in the world, their industry, their firms and in their own lives.” Economist Joseph E. Stiglitz will discuss “Income Inequality and Its Impact on Investment Decision Making.” Private equity pioneer Henry R. Kravis of KKR will sit for a fireside chat entitled “Reflections on Life and Leadership.” Susan J. Carter, Senior Advisor of Commonfund, will lead a discussion on "Using Networks for Good." Washington insiders will look “Inside the Beltway 2016” and state treasurers will examine “The Push for Transparency: What the SEC and LPs Want to See.” The Summit will also address the challenges of leading an organization, with topics including: “Creating a Culture of Success: The Message From the Top,” “Building Trust Around a Firm’s Brand” and “Leveraging Diversity of Thought to Gain Advantage.”
