Personal Finance: Money Myths You Can't Afford to Believe
Helaine Olen

At the same time that income inequality in the US has widened and social safety nets have frayed, the personal finance industry has mushroomed into a multi-billion dollar business. But as popular Forbes blogger and financial commentator Helaine Olen explains, many so-called advisors have become rich preying on people's fears, propagating simple formulas about saving and spending that seldom succeed. In this lively and enlightening session, Olen exposes the dubious practices and outright deceit of financial gurus in the age of the easy fix.

Social Media Marketing: The Social Selling Revolution
Clara Shih

Every day, a billion people around the globe share the most important moments of their lives on social media, from new jobs to newborns - and everything in between.

Leadership Lessons: The Female Mind: The Biology of Leadership
Dr. Helen Fisher

Based on her groundbreaking brain scanning studies, biological anthropologist Helen Fisher likens men and women to two feet: they help each other get ahead, in part because they think differently. And as Fisher explains in this fascinating presentation, women's ancient, biologically based aptitudes - to gather and integrate details, to take a broader, more holistic perspective, and to weigh multiple options and plot a long-term course - are all leadership qualities that are essential to the modern bottom line.

Business Panel: Transforming Business for High Performance
Panelists

Patricia Florissi

Debbie Dunnam


How do companies not just get to the top but also manage to stay there, through good economic times and bad? The true success stories are businesses that focus less on short-term revenue growth and more on continuously opening up new playing fields, thriving from one business venture to another. The process is not necessarily smooth or risk-free and requires keeping several steps ahead of the game. The corporate leaders from market-leading companies on this panel reveal how it's done.

Morning Keynote: Innovation 2.0
Rana Foroohar

In the debate over improving America's economic competitiveness, talk often turns to reforming education, building better infrastructure, and cutting red tape. But there is little discussion of the more endemic problem: how American business has moved away from its roots in technologically based innovation and toward a culture of quarterly profit taking. Rana Foroohar, TIME's assistant managing editor for business and economic coverage, provides an in-depth look at the lessons to be drawn from winning businesses and economic models in both the US and abroad.

Closing Keynote Address: Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton
Hillary Rodham Clinton Former Secretary of State and Former U.S. Senator from New YorkModerator: Helen Drinan

Hillary Rodham Clinton served as the nation's 67th Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, after nearly four decades in public service. Her "smart power" approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century. Clinton played a central role in restoring America's standing in the world, reasserting the United States as a Pacific power, imposing crippling sanctions on Iran and North Korea, responding to the Arab Awakening, and negotiating a ceasefire in the Middle East. Earlier, as First Lady and then Senator from New York, she traveled to more than 80 countries as a champion of human rights, democracy, and opportunities for women and girls. Clinton also worked to provide health care to millions of children, create jobs and opportunity, and support first responders who risked their lives at Ground Zero. In her historic campaign for U.S. President in 2008, Clinton won 18 million votes.
