leave a comment »

For the second consecutive year, Vault will be sending a team to cover the World Business Forum at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. The 2010 event takes place on October 5 and 6, and features some of the world’s leading business thinkers and practitioners. If there’s anywhere to identify the key trends that are likely to shape business—and most likely your career—over the coming years, the World Business Forum is it.

Speakers at this year’s event include former Vice President Al Gore, former Procter & Gamble chairman, president and CEO A.G. Lafley, movie director James Cameron, GE’s Jack Welch, economist Joseph Stiglitz and many more.

The full itinerary is below, and Vault’s team will be in attendance for all of it, live-blogging and tweeting from the event, and providing extra insight and perspective in the days following it as well. If you’re going to be in attendance, we’d love to hear from you. Otherwise, stay tuned to Vault’s Careers Blog and our @vaultcareers Twitter feed throughout the event for all the latest coverage.
