What I did to Milken

I’m back in New York after a busy few days at the Milken Institute Global Conference, where investors, founders and CEOs came together to discuss today’s most pressing issues.

I was there to moderate a roundtable (which you can watch here) on the erosion of trust and the responsibilities of big business — but I was also looking forward to getting back to IRL networking. Attendees were also thrilled to see their clients, colleagues and peers in person. There was a real energy to the event.

I was slightly surprised at how optimistic many of the attendees were given the challenges facing the global economy. Whether it’s inflation, rising rates and the risk of a recession in the United States or the invasion of Ukraine and the move towards a more multipolar world, there is what to worry about. While some people were more cautious, on the whole I found attendees to be quite optimistic – although I can’t help but think that the LA sun and the excitement of in-person interactions might have contribute to it.

I will be heading to the World Economic Forum in Davos in a few weeks, where I look forward to hearing from a wide range of participants. I’ll be writing another dispatch while I’m at it, so be sure to check back for the latest from Switzerland.

Now on to the rest of the stories.
