I was in Chicago last week at the Schwab Impact Conference where we had the opportunity to hear firsthand from several key players on todays stage.  I have to report Schwab has done a great job of making this one of the ‘must attend’ events of the year.

I thought I’d highlight three of my favorite keynote sessions:

 

  1. Peter Diamandis – a very optimistic look at the future through the eyes of technology and private sector innovation through his X Prize Foundation  –> http://www.xprize.org/ (X Prize Video –> http://youtu.be/cz24s85GVU0) (CNBC Link –> http://www.cnbc.com/id/49821965)
  2. Simpson / Bowles – a not so optimistc view of the debt problem here in the USA –> http://www.cnbc.com/id/49842651
  3. Robert Gates and Richard Haass – also, not so optimistic report on foreign policy / US Security. Their biggest concern: Iran & Israel
