New York, October 25, 2017 — Bloomberg Live announced the full list of speakers and agenda for its annual The Year Ahead Summit, set for November 8th at Bloomberg’s global headquarters in New York City.

Speakers include Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of Renault-Nissan- Mitsubishi Alliance, Jim Coulter, Co-CEO of TPG, Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the National Football League and Weight Watchers President and CEO Mindy Grossman. Bloomberg Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait will sit down with Anita Hill, twenty-six years after she ignited a transformative national conversation on sexual harassment, to discuss recent events pertaining to workplace culture and the significant changes still needed.

“The conversations held by the distinguished speakers at this year’s summit will arm attendees with the knowledge they need to make smart business decisions in the coming year,” said Stephen Colvin, Global Head of Bloomberg Live. “Bloomberg is uniquely positioned to offer an event that has both breadth and depth by leveraging the resources of the Bloomberg ecosystem as well as our world-class research arm Bloomberg Intelligence.”

The summit will formally kick off on November 7th with an intimate conversation with contemporary artist Jeff Koons about his career and his views on global art trends to watch in 2018. The interview will be followed by a dinner sponsored by Hennessy Paradis Impérial.
