Yale CEO Leadership Summit Review

Professor Jeff Sonnenfeld, founder and CEO of the Yale CEO Leadership Institute, held another tremendously successful CEO Summit at the NYSE the week of June 6th. The Summit kicked off with much positive energy on Tuesday evening with a reception on the Trading Floor with a very special guest - IBM's Watson - the Jeopardy Game show champ. Participating CEO's and guests were encouraged to give Watson a try and play a bit of Jeopardy against him on the Floor. I had to challenge Watson and can attest that Watson is VERY sharp and VERY quick with answers! The Group of CEOs were then briefed at dinner by David McQueeney VP of Software at IBM Research - who told the fascinating story of how Watson was created and ended up winning Jeopardy.
