On Thursday, November 17, 2016 The World of Business Ideas (#WOBINYC), held its annual World Business Forum (WBF) at Lincoln Center’s Koch Theater. The Forum featured a brilliant lineup of renowned business professionals and thought leaders across a wide range of disciplines who drove home the concept of living life in a constant state of #beta.
Thousands of attendees from around the world had the opportunity to listen, network and engage directly with a number of companies, including lead sponsor Teleperformance, upon arrival to the theatre’s atrium. The Teleperformance booth in particular served as a meeting hub where guests could relax and recharge from the day’s activities, connect with a key member of the Teleperformance team or meet presenters such as acclaimed professor and lecturer Vijay Govindarajan during a post-lunch book signing and photo-op. Other speakers on the first day included noted business consultant Eric Ries, Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzi, and marketing wizard Martin Lindstrom.
On Friday, November 18, conference-goers entered the Koch Theater in New York City to a host of musical performances that energized the #WOBINYC stage to warm up the crowd for former CEO of Ford Motor Company Alan Mulally. Other speakers on the second day included economist Dambisa Moyo, artist Eric Wahl, author Chris McChesney, and fashion mogul Daymond John. The event concluded with an outstanding talk from renowned tennis star Andre Agassi. The two-day event was an amazing experience for all who had the opportunity to participate.
we look forward to seeing everyone again at the WBF in 2017!
