What It Really Takes to Win in Business

Saturday, March 14
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Exhibit Hall 5
Austin Convention Center


To win in business, you need to fight. Catch two business heavyweights in a no-holds-barred Q&A session featuring legendary business leader and former GE CEO Jack Welch and rogue entrepreneur and venture capitalist Gary Vaynerchuk.

Learn to do battle in today’s ever-evolving business landscape: Each with his own take-no-prisoners approach, Jack and Gary will tell you how to level up, whether you’re launching a new venture, trying to scale an existing company, seeking to decimate your competitors, or want to break barriers and reject the status quo in your own career.

Get your toughest questions ready for two wayfarers known for ditching the script in everything they’ve done.

Moderated by business leader Suzy Welch (and co-author with Jack of "The Real-Life MBA: Your No-BS Guide to Winning the Game, Building a Team, and Growing Your Career"), #JackAndGary will field questions from the audience, as well as from their millions-strong fan communities across social media.
