FOR TV HIGHLIGHTS CONSIDERATION:
The next episode of CNBC's "Executive Vision: Leadership in Action" (episode 4 - Infrastructure) airs Monday, Oct. 25th at 8PM ET & 12AM ET on CNBC.
In a world where nothing is certain and everything is on the line, how do leaders guide their companies to greatness? Season 2 of CNBC five-part series sponsored by Credit Suisse is a global strategy session with some of the world’s brightest minds. Hosted by CNBC’s Simon Hobbs and featuring a renowned panel of experts, the series delves into provocative issues facing five key sectors and outlines real-time, empowering strategies for success.
In this episode entitled, Executive Vision: Leadership in Action – Infrastructure:
More than a simple network of roads and rails, infrastructure is a crucial building block of capitalism. Its ingredients – energy, metals, materials – are all traded on the stock exchange, and these trades have far-reaching impact. Governments are just now realizing that there is money to be made from trading infrastructure, making this one of the hottest markets around.
In this hour we take a look at how to trade infrastructure for profit while avoiding the potential pitfalls. In addition we examine new cities and how they’re mushrooming around meccas of technology, instead of around commercial centers as we’ve seen in the past. We will consider how public and private partnerships are laying new networks of roads and rails to service our new capitals of commerce. Finally we consider how leaders can navigate and negotiate their way through uncharted territory and how they can ensure sustainability in our ever-changing society.
Guests include: Daryl Dulaney, Siemens Industry President & CEO; Eva Lerner-Lam, Palisades China Group President and CEO; Chris Luebkeman, Arup Director, Global Foresight and Innovation; Vahid Ownjazayeri, The Shaw Group Vice President, Environmental & Infrastructure; Michael Valocchi, IBM Vice President, Global Business Services; Jay H. Walder, Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman & CEO; and Barbara Weber, B CAPITAL PARTNERS Founding Partner.
