Last year, we listened to lessons from corporate leaders from Kraft Heinz, JPMorgan Chase, ascena retail, and more as they discussed their industry-specific challenges and first-hand experiences from enabling their BigCos to operate like startups.
The Garage Group is excited to organize and host a special Courageous Minds Only chat on Operating Like a Startup in a BigCo to kick off the new year with special guest, Beth Comstock, the former Vice Chair and head of marketing and innovation at GE, and author of Imagine it Forward.
Beth has trailblazed the way forward for BigCo innovators and leaders through her experiences shifting GE toward a new digital future and a more innovative culture. In Imagine it Forward, she shares much of that battle-tested perspective. Join us on Wednesday, January 23 from 6:30-8: 30 pm as she continues to share her thoughts on how to tackle BigCo challenges in the face of uncertainty.
Beth Comstock‘s mission is to understand what’s next, navigate change and help people and organizations do the same. By cultivating a habit of seeking out new ideas, people and places, she built a career path from storyteller to chief marketer to GE Vice Chair. In nearly three decades at GE, she led efforts to accelerate new growth and innovation, initiated GE’s digital and clean-energy transformation, seeded new businesses and enhanced GE’s brand value and inventive culture. As President of Integrated Media at NBC Universal, Beth oversaw TV ad revenue and new digital efforts, including the early development of hulu.com. Beth is a director at Nike, trustee of The National Geographic Society and former board president of the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian National Design Museum. She graduated from the College of William and Mary with a degree in biology.
Join us on January 23 at 1460 Broadway, New York, NY 10036.
