BROOKLYN, NY – July 24, 2012 – The Economist will host an event on September 27th, 2012 titled “Ideas Economy: Human Potential 2012". Taking place at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City, this event is designed for senior-level leaders who value the role of human capital in advancing economic growth, and seeks to address the psychological and social impact of today’s dynamic, globally-oriented workplace. HCI, a supporting partner with The Economist for this conference, will be promoting the event to its 195,000 members worldwide. Both organizations are committed to discovering and implementing next-generation solutions and insights for today’s business culture.
The Economist understands that while the modern workplace is a place of exciting new breakthroughs – entrepreneurial opportunities, the feminization of the workforce, a global labor market – the downside is a period of turbulent change for many practitioners, who find themselves scrambling to innovate just to stay relevant. The focus of the conference is on harnessing these opportunities for creative destruction and disruptive thinking and determining the biggest issues affecting tomorrow’s workforce. Guests will hear from speakers, and from each other, about ground-level insight into the business challenges of tomorrow.
Chaired by Matthew Bishop, The Economist’s US business editor and New York Bureau Chief, and management editor and Schumpeter columnist Adrian Woolridge, “Human Potential 2012” will feature an impressive line-up of talent gurus leading the discussion for a crowd of about 200 C-level practitioners.
HCI will be offering discounted rates to its members for this event. To learn more, including registration information and a series of embedded videos of this year’s speakers, please visit http://econ.st/MteYKD
