On June 22nd 2010, Richard Attias, executive chairman at The Experience Corporation lead the New York Forum which gathered world financial leaders, top CEOs, and policy makers for “a series of spirited 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.” Among the participants at the New York Forum were Carlos Slim, telecom tycoon and the wealthiest man in the world, Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corp, Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York City and many other distinctive figures as well.
The thorough discussion covered topics ranging from growth sustainability during slow economical times, the need to establish real dialog between the private sectors and political leaders and the importance of having complete transparency at the market place. The participants raised the deep need to engage real people to help foster innovation and convert experience and insights into ideas and solutions. The final thoughts and inputs of the forum will be delivered to the G-20 at their meeting in Toronto immediately following the event.
Dr. Newton Howard of Oxantium Ventures took part in the forum discussions and provided his technical insights that draw upon his wide experience in identifying emerging technologies having been part of the U.S. government and intelligence community that invested in and utilized next generation technologies. The forum helps in understanding the world’s perception of innovation and therefore makes it easier to comprehend which ideas have the potential to be successful and be viewed as cutting-edge and innovative.
