From the home office in Oslo…

#1: I’d like to publicly state for the record that I never accept sponsorship or freebies for my blog posts…because no one ever offers any…

Clinton, Hamel, Krugman, Lucas…and Me: World Business Forum

WBF crowd 2008The first four names in the title – and many others – will be speaking at the World Business Forum in New York City on Oct 6-7, 2009.

And I ‘ll be listening to them. From the mezzanine level of Radio City Music Hall, where the journalists will be. I explain why below.

What is the World Business Forum? From its Wikipedia entry:

The World Business Forum is an annual global business summit held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. A 2008 Burson-Marsteller survey ranks the World Business Forum among the world’s top five most influential venues for CEO’s and C-Suite executives.

This is my first time attending. The lineup of speakers is impressive:

  • Bill Clinton
  • Gary Hamel
  • Paul Krugman
  • George Lucas
  • T. Boone Pickens
  • David Rubenstein (co-founder, managing partner of private equity firm The Carlyle Group)
  • Irene Rosenfeld (CEO of Kraft, USA Today story)
  • Kevin Roberts (CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi)
  • and many others…

I’ll be participating in two ways: my company Spigit is a sponsor, so we’ll have a table there. And I’m a late addition to the Bloggers Hub as well. Looking forward to a great view from the mezzanine – where the journalists are apparently located – and wifi.

Look for my tweets with the #wbf09 hash tag.
