For the first time, IBM’s biennial CEO Study (which launched in May) included interviews with more than 3600 graduate and undergraduate students. Their perspectives on the future of business and leadership in the smarter planet era is the subject of another first: a “v-panel” discussion with four people joining by webcams. The group will discuss two of the key findings that young adults cited as the most important issues shaping their careers: globalization and sustainability.
- Ragna Bell, associate partner IBM Global Business Services and the global lead for Strategy & Change at the IBM Institute for Business Value
- Christopher Adkins is director of the Undergraduate Business Program at the College of William & Mary (Mason School of Business)
- Jeff Hittner, Carnegie New Leader at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs
- Emily Goodson, Assistant Director, MA Career Counseling, Wake Forest University Schools of Business
Tune in at 4pm on Tuesday, July 13th to the IBM New Intelligence Channel on Livestream. You can post questions via the live chat or share your thoughts with the Twitter hashtag #smarterleaders. The VPanel approach, by the way, is the handiwork of IBM alumni Paul Trout and his team at Shift Worldwide.
