In addition to having the ideal insights in the financial markets, policies and global economic drivers, Ron Insana was truly a pleasure to be around and extremely gracious of his time with our conference attendees. He provided seemingly unlimited access to all attendees interested in speaking with him. He made this year's conference the very best ever.

ABOUT RON INSANA

As the world seeks to recover from the paralyzing effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, Ron Insana has been connecting the dots to give his audience a clearer idea of what the economic and health future might look like. As a pioneering financial journalist, Ron has covered the most important economic stories of our lifetime over his nearly four decades on television. He even won an Emmy Award for his reporting about 9/11. Currently senior analyst and commentator with CNBC where he also served as anchor and correspondent since 1991, Ron also hosts The Market Score Board Report, a thrice-daily nationally syndicated radio program.

As a financial journalist, Ron stands alone as someone who ran his own hedge fund – experience that makes his insights all the more valuable. He’s also written for Money magazine, USA Today, and authored four bestselling books on investing and reading the financial markets. In Ron’s speeches, he looks at how Wall Street, Main Street and Washington are intersecting – and translates the market signals and political maneuvers into actionable information everyone can understand and use to protect what they have and navigate an uncertain future.

Ron Insana was a trailblazer; among the first group of financial journalists who launched the Financial News Network (FNN) in 1984. When FNN merged with CNBC in 1991, Ron continued to cover the most important stories affecting the financial markets as an anchor and correspondent on CNBC and on other NBC news outlets. In the process, he became one of the most visible reporters broadcasting financial news.

Over the years, Ron became well-known for his high-profile interviews, which included Presidents Clinton and Bush; billionaire investors Warren Buffett, George Soros and Julian Robertson, among others; captains of industry like Bill Gates, Jack Welch and the late Steve Jobs; top economists, analysts and global heads of state, from Former Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, to Jordan’s Queen, Rania.

During his broadcasting career, Ron has received numerous honors for his work. He was named one of the “Top 100 Business News Journalists of the 20th Century” and was nominated for a news and documentary Emmy Award for his role in NBC’s coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attack.

In addition to his work as a business journalist, Insana was the CEO of Insana Capital Partners, from 2006-2008, which, at its peak, managed the $125 million Insana Capital Partners Legends Fund. His hands-on experience in the financial industry – through some of the markets’ most turbulent times – gives Ron an added depth of perspective that few financial journalists can match.

Ron Insana has authored four bestselling books: How to Make a Fortune from the Biggest Bailout in U.S. History (2009); Traders Tales: A Chronicle of Wall Street Myths, Legends, and Outright Lies (1996), Trend Watching: Don’t Be Fooled by the Next Investment Fad, Mania, or Bubble (2002), and The Message of the Markets (2000).

In addition to writing, contributing, and advising, Ron Insana is a highly-regarded speaker on domestic and global economics, financial markets, and economic policy issues. He is also currently senior adviser at Schroders Investment Management.

RON INSANA PROGRAMS & TOPICS

Restoring Prosperity in a Post-Pandemic World

The U.S. economy’s longest expansion was stopped dead in its tracks by the Coronavirus pandemic – a shock that proved to be a wake-up call, not just to America, but to the whole world. What happens as we emerge on the other side of this crisis? New habits, sensibilities, and technologies will likely radically alter how we live and work for years, if not decades, to come. That doesn’t mean the U.S. won’t ultimately recover. In fact, with the proper policies and incentives, the economy of the next 50 years could be, quite conceivably, far stronger than the economy of the last 50 years. The question becomes to what kind of world do we want to return – and is government and the private sector providing leadership to take us into that future? Ron Insana looks at how the future is unfolding and the economic implications for you, your business, and your industry.

2020 Vision – The Consequences of the Presidential Election

The upcoming presidential election will be a sharp contrast in domestic and global economic and political visions. What are the choices being offered? What are the economic consequences of each – for Main Street – for Wall Street? Ron Insana unpacks the candidates’ agendas and works to separate campaign rhetoric from reality; suggesting what might actually be politically achievable in the next presidential term in a totally non-partisan presentation. What goes on in Washington doesn’t stay in Washington – it impacts the business environment like never before. What will 2020 election outcome mean for you, your business, your industry, and your investments? Those are the questions Ron Insana answers in this presentation.

The Message of the Markets - What are They Saying About the Future?

How can you protect what you have and find new opportunities in this investment climate? Every day the world’s markets are speaking – shouting, really – boldly predicting the future. In fact, they are reflecting information not yet revealed to the general public. In ancient times, investors and merchants met to buy and sell goods – and to exchange information and gossip. This information is reflected in the prices charged for those goods, whether it was news of war in a far-flung region that will cut off the gold supply or a crop failure that will make wheat scarce. Today, tradable securities are the proxies for goods and services and act in exactly the same fashion. In order to understand what the markets are saying, you have to know how to listen to and interpret the messages they are sending. In this talk Ron Insana shows audiences how to understand the signals put out by the markets, and protect their economic future.

The Next Wave – New Technologies That Will Transform Your Future

Navigating the post-Coronavirus world will continue to be a whiplash-inducing experience. The new technologies and medical breakthroughs that are coming will make things even more challenging. 5G, AI, robotics, machine learning, regenerative medicine, and more are all racing towards us. Soon, mountains of data will come more forcefully than ever, changing even further what is possible in business. The biggest change of all is how quickly new technologies become ubiquitous. Ron looks at the most impactful new technologies and the impact they’ll have. They include experts who are already working on creating human organs from stem cells printed on 3-D printers…and researchers working to stop the aging clock altogether. Experts believe that among millennials, the first person to live to 150 has already been born. Are we ready for that future?

In many ways, what Mike was able to do with the USS Benfold was an extreme example of the same problems facing many organizations today. That’s why dozens of publications including The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and Fast Company have cited Mike’s story as an inspiring lesson for business. Leaders especially identify with Mike’s being accountable for the results in an environment where he couldn’t make the rules.

“When my crew came to me with a problem, I’d say ‘It’s your ship – how would you fix it?’.” Mike focused on the one thing he could influence: his crew’s attitude, because culture is the ultimate competitive weapon for any organization.

Mike’s established a set of management principles that he calls The Leadership Roadmap. At the core of his leadership approach on Benfold was a process of replacing command and control with commitment and cohesion, and engaging the hearts, minds, and loyalties of workers with conviction and humility. “The most important thing that a captain can do is to see the ship through the eyes of the crew. The idea is to empower every individual to share the responsibility of achieving excellence.”

By every measure, these principles achieved breakthrough results: turnover decreased to an unprecedented 1%; the rate of promotions tripled; and the crew slashed operating expenses by 25%. Regarded as the finest ship in the Pacific Fleet, Benfold won the prestigious Spokane Trophy for having the highest degree of combat readiness. This remarkable turnaround was accomplished by the very same crew that had performed so poorly just months before.

Mike is author of three books. His first, It’s Your Ship, has a timeless message: don’t use outside forces that stand in your way as excuses – control the things you can influence and amazing results will happen. His next books, It’s Our Ship and Get Your Ship Together, showed how these principles have been put into action by business leaders in their own organizations.

A popular keynote speaker for audiences looking to ramp up organizational performance, Mike has spoken to every industry and kind of audience – from board retreats to front line personnel; from sales groups to universities; from Fortune 500s to startups. He inspires audiences to rethink their beliefs about leadership and organizational culture and tailors the message to focus on engagement, execution, change, safety, diversity, leadership, teamwork, innovation, accountability and more.

Prior to commanding USS Benfold, Mike served as the Military Assistant to Secretary of Defense William J. Perry. He also helped draft the air defense plan for naval forces in the Persian Gulf in 1990, coinciding with Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait; and served as the executive officer of the Cruiser Shiloh, where he deployed to the Persian Gulf in support of United Nations sanctions against Iraq.

Mike Abrashoff is the founder of Aegis Performance Group, a consulting firm which works with and supports leaders as they address leadership, talent and performance challenges within their organizations. Mike and his team prompt leaders at all levels to re-imagine their leadership thinking and create new ways to elevate individual, team and organizational performance.
