Societal Disruption & Global Opportunity: Moderated Conversation and Breakfast
As world leaders gather in New York City for the 2022 UN General Assembly, and with the November midterm elections less than seven weeks away and dominating the national discourse, we ask the question: In the face of profound social upheaval and disruption, how can the dominant players on the global stage — from multinational conglomerates and national governments to the media giants, financial and tech titans, and other powerful cultural institutions — turn the many and profound challenges we collectively face into opportunities?
On Wednesday, September 21, Recount Media co-founder and CEO John Battelle will be joined by his partner John Heilemann, co-founder and Executive Editor of the Recount, and host, creator, and executive producer of Showtime’s acclaimed, Emmy-nominated political docu-series “The Circus,” to discuss the interlocking political, economic, and environmental crises that make this moment so fraught for so many … and how leaders are grappling with both the speed and scale of the changes whipping through our culture. They will also survey the American electoral landscape, looking ahead to the midterms and the 2024 presidential campaign.
John Battelle will also speak with Deepak Mishra, Philip Morris International CEO of the Americas, to glean perspective from a multinational corporation looking to innovate as a brand in the face of global dislocation and corporate evolution.
From business to politics, tech to culture, we’re at a pivotal juncture, and we’ll explore that place without fear or favor, bias or BS over breakfast with other VIP guests at Patroon NYC.
