O'Reilly's Next:Economy Summit

Sebastopol, CA—The upcoming O'Reilly Next:Economy Summit—October 10-11 at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco—addresses how business, technology, and government can create a Next Economy that brings prosperity to all.

Every industry and organization has to transform itself, in multiple ways, or fade away. Technology can augment workers instead of replacing them, and tech allows us to tackle our world's largest problems. Successful companies must create great experiences for their workers as well as for customers. We need a new set of business rules that reallocates profits to workers and taxpayers, not only corporations and shareholders.

Chairs Reid Hoffman and Tim O'Reilly have released the program. Featured speakers include:

  • Jeff Weiner, LinkedIn
  • Brian Chesky, Airbnb
  • Penny Pritzker, US Department of Commerce
  • Tom Kartsotis, Shinola
  • Urs Holzle, Google
  • Dan Doctoroff, Sidewalk Labs
  • Jessica Lessin, The Information
  • David Kenny, IBM Watson
  • Rana Foroohar, Time and CNN
  • Paul English, Lola
  • John Bassett III, Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company
  • Douglas Rushkoff, Author
  • Robert Johnson, Institute for New Economic Thinking
