The Shift Is Here. Business Must Lead. The collision of technology, business, politics and culture has contributed to the most divisive time in US history. It’s time to come together – literally and metaphorically – bringing into one room the cross-disciplinary and cross-the-aisle POVs required to drive change, fuel new ideas, understand the impact of disruptive technologies and resulting new market opportunities. Shift Forum is that room – don’t miss your opportunity to be there.
“Most conferences look at a single issue in a vacuum. NewCo’s Shift Forum combines politics, health, media, tech, and finance to provide a more complete picture of what happening, and what’s coming next.”
“The NewCo Shift forum was a fascinating set of discussions that drove home the importance of planning for the future of work. It brought together large companies and small, as well as the worlds of investment and non-profit. Truly, a wide-ranging and critical look at how business can drive our country's development forward, and a great addition to the small list of "must-attend" events in Future of Tech and Society arena.”
“The best conferences combine the intimacy of a salon with the pulse of a music festival. Very few conference operators can pull that off but John Battelle has delivered on it consistently over two decades. His latest effort, Shift Forum, explores the challenges with technology, politics, and capitalism and where we go from here. It's one of the few "must go" conferences out there right now”
“The Forum gets you thinking, not just about what’s immediately happening but the long-term effects of business and policy in our increasingly complex world. John Battelle doesn’t accept surface level answers, he digs deep with his high-profile guests and gets them to address the hard questions they’re facing today and will face in the future. ”
“Congrats on an awesome forum. Terrific content and attendees. There is a tremendous desire in the tech and the broader business community for a meaningful dialogue on societal change/impact and policy. ”
“John Battelle's Shift Forum was a thought provoking event that curated a fascinating conversation across politics, technology, innovation, and social issues. Outstanding speakers. Left me wanting more.”
“I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Shift event. You curated an amazing agenda of content and people and did a masterful job of weaving it all together. Really well done.”
“It was an amazing event. We used it to push our thinking about the kind of company we are and the kind of company we want to be.”
“Kudos on a wonderful, thought provoking and inspirational event. Props on the content, flow, audience and 50 percent women speakers. You rocked it!”
“Thank you for involving me in the first Shift Forum. It was a great experience. The conference had a huge amount of timely and relevant content, and was definitely something differentiated from the normal senior conferences.”
“The Shift Forum was out of this world!!! Congratulations - you really are inciting a movement. We felt lucky to be a part of it. Bravo.”
“Congratulations on the success of the conference. I enjoyed the event and I was impressed with the level of attendance.”
“Awesome new conference - the Shift Forum. Think of it like a more serious TED.”
“What a wonderful event. The policy perspective that you programmed into the Forum fully elevated the content beyond any event that I’ve attended.”
“You killed it with the Shift Forum conference. It was not only thought provoking, but potentially game-changing for innovators and entrepreneurs. From Podesta, the Russians, genomic medicine, and even Steph Curry, it hit on all the relevant zeitgeist touch points driving the market today. It can serve as a real wake-up call and spur catalytic thinking and action for anyone starting, building or seeking to transform their business. Can’t wait for one next year!”
“An exhilarating program brimming with thought leaders, visionaries and accomplished innovators, led through their paces by John Battelle, who himself is all three. I was hugely impressed. Tremendously valuable and inspiring.”
