Bringing together 400 government officials, chief executive officers, leading investors, and analysts, next week’s inaugural New York Times DealBook Conference will be a monumental meeting of the minds.
We’re honored today to announce that Hearsay Social CEO and founder Clara Shih will speak on the future of technology and innovation at the conference alongside Silicon Valley luminaries like Eric Schmidt (Chairman and former CEO of Google) and Michael Moritz (Chairman of Sequoia Capital). Their remarks will follow perspectives on the state of the economy from JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Carlyle Group Co-CEO David Rubenstein, Blackstone Group CEO Stephen Schwarzman, New York Times Op-Ed Columnist Paul Krugman, and a handful of other global leaders.
Clara’s innovation panel, moderated by Quentin Hardy, deputy technology editor of the New York Times, will take place December 12 at 11:25 a.m. ET at the TimesCenter. (Limited seating is still available here.)
At Hearsay Social, we recognize a massive shift underway in the industry toward embracing social and mobile technology to drive deeper customer relationships and long-term productivity gains. Clara will focus on today’s board and C-suite innovation imperative in adopting Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and mobile devices.
Silicon Valley companies, from Apple and Google to Facebook and Hearsay Social, have flourished because they help grow the economy and drive business productivity across every sector. As chief executive of one such company, Clara will speak personally and professionally to the thriving “innovation economy,” and Hearsay Social’s role in bringing innovation to both Main Street and Wall Street.
In addition to Clara, other confirmed speakers at the conference include:
- Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter
- Lloyd Blankfein, Chairman and CEO, Goldman Sachs
- Jamie Dimon, Chairman, President, and CEO, JPMorgan Chase
- Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo
- Andrew Ross Sorkin, Columnist/Editor, The New York Times
