Because we know SABFers are always looking for opportunities to debate and act, we would like to recommend you to participate in the 2011 edition of the Business Today International Conference. This event is going to be held in November, in New York City, United States. This year’s main topic is Pieces of the Puzzle: Putting Together the Global Economy.

As the global economy recovers from the financial crisis, businesses now face a great challenge: identifying how the last years’ events will permanently shift the way the business world operates. Some of the topics the conference will deal with are: Do the aftershocks of last recession merit a new strategic direction, or were they just a speed bump? In the wake of the recession, how are businesses picking up the pieces and finding their fit?

Who are the major actors that influence corporate decision making in 2011 and beyond? What trends do America’s business leaders feel will influence their companies in the next decade? How do corporations anticipate market fluctuations and use these predictions to identify an opportunity? How will changes in world’s natural resources affect businesses moving forward?

Conference Director Andrea Wolberg asked us to re-transmit this message, shared with you below.


I’m the Director of Business Today’s 2011 International Conference, and applications are live and due on July 24th!

Business Today is an organization I’m involved with at Princeton, founded by Steve Forbes when he was an undergrad. The International Conference will be held Nov 20-22 and is an all-expenses paid (airfare/hotel/meals), 3-day event held at the Grand Hyatt in NYC. It’s is the perfect opportunity to wine and dine with Fortune 500 CEOs: Past executive speakers have included Steve Forbes, Bill Ford, Alan Blinder, and the leaders of Avon Cosmetics, Godiva, Southwest Airlines and many more companies. We just confirmed Wendy Kopp (the Founder of Teach for America) and Ron Meyer (President & COO of Universal Studios) as two of the keynote addresses for this year’s conference.

The only candidate requirement is to be an undergraduate student at university. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!
