The Exchange

Designed to encourage interaction and deep discussions, the Exchange gives senior executives the knowledge, the network, and the know-how to succeed.

What is the Exchange?

The Exchange is an award-winning program hosted by PwC Advisory that gathers senior executives, academicians, scientists and entrepreneurs to discuss pressing business issues.

Held twice a year, the in-depth, three-day program provides a respite from the daily pressures, and allows executives to exchange knowledge and ideas while building stronger networks. The mixture of weekend and weekday sessions allows participants to attend sessions, network and join family members and guests in recreational activities.

The invitation-only forum tackles topics facing executives today, but keeps a keen eye on emerging trends, and the strategies that can help your company succeed.

Recent speakers include:

Bill Ruh, CEO of GE Digital and Senior Vice President of GE
Nick Pudar, Director of Strategic Initiatives at GM
Kara Goldin, CEO and Founder of Hint, Inc.
Kevin Hartley, Chief Innovation Officer, Keurig Green Mountain
Marcus Osborne, Vice President of Health & Wellness Payer Relations for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
Chris Urmson, Head of Engineering for Google's Self-Driving Car Project
Sue Siegel, Chief Executive Officer for GE Ventures and Healthyimagination
