Technologys Impact on Business and Society

Techonomy, a leading events and media company focused on helping organizations and executives
prepare for the rapid pace of tech-enabled transformation, will hold two consecutive events,
Techonomy Health & Techonomy NYC, in New York City on May 16th & 17th.

New York, NY, April 25, 2017 --(PR.com)-- GE's Beth Comstock, Arianna Huffington of Thrive Global,
and John Martin of Turner are among 60 speakers dissecting the role of tech on social and economic
progress, and especially in health.

Techonomy, a leading events and media company focused on helping organizations and executives
prepare for the rapid pace of tech-enabled transformation, will hold two consecutive events, Techonomy
Health & Techonomy NYC, in New York City on May 16th & 17th.

We love our home city in New York and we love helping leaders engage with ideas about tech-driven
change, so we are especially proud to be doing that here for the second year in a row, said David
Kirkpatrick, CEO and Chief Techonomist and author of the bestselling book, The Facebook Effect: The
Inside Story of the Company that is Connecting the World. "We're inviting techonomic thinkers to join us
for either one or both of two days - Techonomy Health first, and then Techonomy NYC on May 17."

Techonomy Health explores the vast potential tech holds to remake this $3 trillion U.S. industry. The
program includes healthcare experts, technologists, policy makers and entrepreneurs for a high-energy
discussion around topics including how AI and CRISPR will change the war on cancer, the future of
consumer health information and media, the ethical and moral quandaries of enhancing the human
genome, and what Trumpcare and Obamacare mean for health innovation. Speakers include Len Greer,
President, Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness; Meredith Guerriero, director for the healthcare
industry at Facebook; Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO, Thrive Global; John Mattison, Chief
Medical Information Officer, Kaiser Permanente; celebrated author and holistic medicine expert Dean
Ornish; Claudia Gonzlez Romo, Executive Office of the Secretary General, UNICEF; Oscar CEO Mario
Schlosser; Brent Shafer, CEO of Philips North America; and Steven Zatz, CEO of WebMD. (Full list

The following day, Techonomy NYC will be a New York-style version of Techonomy's longstanding
retreat in California, where last fall Mark Zuckerberg famously spoke about fake news. Techonomy NYC
will ignite invigorating discourse around ongoing challenges relating to what a government led by Trump
means for technology; the future of work in an on-demand gig economy; the digital and social fight
against terrorism; and tough-to-answer questions about decision making power in an AI world, among
many other topics. Speakers include Beth Comstock, Vice Chair of GE; Karin Klein, Head of Investing
Activities at VC firm Bloomberg Beta; Environmental Defense Fund President Fred Krupp; Turner CEO
John Martin; Miguel McKelvey, Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of WeWork; Eli Pariser,
