LONDON and NEW YORK, April 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal’s flagship CEO Council Summit will take place again on Tuesday May 4th, 2021.
Building on last year’s successful virtual Summits in October and December, the upcoming conference will be held online and will convene over 250 CEOs and leaders shaping the global agenda.
Key speakers will include: Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO, JPMorgan Chase & Co; Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman and CEO, Merck KGaA & Co; Mark Carney, UN Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance; Adena Friedman, President and CEO, Nasdaq; Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer, U.K. Government; Margrethe Vestager, Commissioner for Competition, European Commission; and Janet Yellen, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, among others.
The event will explore how the Biden administration is reshaping the economy and society. It will delve into how businesses have innovated during the Covid-19 crisis and how many are embracing a stronger focus on diversity and environmental sustainability.
"Covid-19 has left a trail of death and economic destruction, but it has also triggered a wave of innovation and experimentation," said Thorold Barker, Editor, Europe, Middle East and Africa for The Wall Street Journal. "CEOs attending the Summit will hear from global experts on how the crisis has reshaped the way we work, the economy and geopolitics, as well as their perspectives on how to stay at the forefront of innovation in today's fast-changing world."
