Connect with the Fall Meeting Changing World Speakers
Kick off your 2014 Fall Meeting by attending ULI’s Changing World Speaker Series on Tuesday, October 21. During this set of inspiring presentations, innovators from outside the real estate industry will bring their perspective to the pressing problems faced by ULI members. Following their panel discussion on the main stage, the speakers will participate in breakout sessions, giving Fall Meeting attendees unparalleled access to these visionaries. Meet the following Changing World speakers at the 2014 Fall Meeting in New York City:
- Jennifer Lawton, president of MakerBot. MakerBot is three-dimensional printer technology. If you are not familiar with 3-D printing, it’s a growing industry. Practitioners are already integrating the technology into building practices with large format 3-D printers, with a significant potential impact on real estate.
- Brad Katsuyama, president and chief executive officer of IEX. Katsuyama is the focus of Flash Boys, a nonfiction book by Michael Lewis about high-frequency trading in financial markets, and will explain how IEX is using technology to create a fair trading environment and fundamentally changing the stock market.
- Scott Heiferman of Meetup, the world’s largest network of local groups, will talk about the importance of creating and connecting communities and how people can change their personal world—or the whole world—by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference. More than 9,000 groups get together in local communities each day, each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.
- Vincent Stanley of Patagonia will share how the outdoor clothing and gear company has successfully built a brand that is immediately identified with a more active, healthier, and greener lifestyle. The tensions between marketing and sustainability, the public’s influence on the direction of the brand, and the trade-offs that Patagonia has addressed throughout its growth will be explored.
