Several times each year Driven: A Conversation with ... & the Isenberg School of Management will bring seminal business thought leaders together to share insights with Boston’s business community. Driven will draw its speakers from across the business spectrum. Our principal selection criterion: speakers will have excelled as change agents whose ideas are reshaping the landscape of business thought and practice.
As New England’s top-rated public business school, Isenberg is an increasingly valued resource for Boston’s business community. In that role, Driven aspires to catalyze the exchange of innovative ideas and business networking.
For its inaugural event, Isenberg presented Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer and chief scientist at Primary Data. A Silicon Valley icon for more than thirty years, Wozniak co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs in 1976, shaping the computer industry with his design of Apple I and II and influencing the popular Macintosh. In recent years, he has directed his passion for mathematics and electronics toward improving computer capabilities in schools and hands-on learning and creativity among students.
Our third installment brought together two industry leaders for a moderated conversation at the Aloft Boston Seaport Hotel. John Fish, Chairman and CEO of Suffolk – a leading U.S. contracting firm and architect Bjarke Ingels, founder and creative partner of Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), discussed design and architecture for the future. Or in other words, what does Boston (or any other city) look like in 2050? How does technology, lifestyle, or even climate change has on the way we live, work and play? WBUR’s award-winning journalist and senior correspondent, Bruce Gellerman lead the evening’s conversation. View the live video on our facebook page!
