Other-Worldly at the New York Stock Exchange
The WF360 event at the New York Stock Exchange was other-worldly for reasons described in the video: steak and wine and luxurious desert amid the unseen carnage of two days of stock market evisceration.
At the event, we -- thinkers, leaders and others in such discussed such "What If"questions posed by host Susan Bird as What if the food chain, whose customers are overwhelmingly women, were controlled by women -- from agriculture to packaging to retail? What if our health care system provided real choice? What if Americans started living within their means (what would that mean for your business)? Award honoree Helen Alexander, former CEO of The Economist Group talked of leadership's three "i's": intelligence, internationalism and integrity.
And NYSE EVP Larry Leibowitz bemoaned the financial illiteracy of so many Americans.
