New technologies and business models are upending established industries,
pressuring businesses to adapt to an ever-changing "brave new world." The

bring leaders from around the world to Silicon Valley to brainstorm what
inspires us today and what's next for tomorrow.

our exciting future in fields ranging from neuroscience to transportation to
economics, and everything in between. The day concludes with an exclusive
GTS VIP dinner, featuring a surprise guest speaker. Day two explores
megatrends such as breakthrough business models, marketing to "digital
