Advisory Board Announced For The New York Forum. Global Business
Leaders and Experts Embrace Call For Action to Confront Economic
First Annual Forum For Developing New Business Models And Job Creation created by Richard
(Vocus) April 12, 2010 -- The New York Forum (www.ny-forum.com), to be held on June 22 and 23 in New
York City, today announced a distinguished group of global business leaders and experts as its Advisory Board.
The group includes Nobel Prize winning economist and Director of The Center for Capitalism and Society,
Edmund Phelps, Partnership for New York City CEO Kathy Wylde, Pacific Capital Founder and Chairman Gary
Winnick and Scott-Heekin-Canedy, President and General Manager, The New York Times.
The first annual New York Forum will bring together hundreds of international business leaders, entrepreneurs,
sovereign fund managers, regulatory officials and academics for a series of results-oriented discussions, debates
and dialogues, with a mission that is both bold and urgent: to reinvent business models, to stimulate job creation
and restore faith in the international economy.
“I am very pleased and proud by the caliber of international and New York City leaders that are serving on our
Advisory Board,” said Attias. “At this time, there is no place with greater creative potential to turn adversity into
prosperity than New York City, and the advisory board is a great reflection of that potential.”
“There are signs that the economy has lost its dynamism, its urge to innovate, or its ability to innovate,” said
Edmund Phelps. “We have a special responsibility to call for action. The New York Forum is an opportunity for
the private sector to exert leadership."
