DealBook Summit: Leading in an Existential Moment

Talk about an innovative meeting of the minds!

The DealBook Summit in New York showcased leaders in politics, business, tech, sports, and entertainment to examine some of the world’s most crucial concepts. I watched every single discussion led by Founder and Editor of DealBook, Ross Sorkin, and I feel inspired and more educated because of it.

Sorkin interviewed some of the most consequential and prominent global leaders, ranging from Vice President Kamala Harris to Elon Musk of X, Tesla, and Space X, and former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy to PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan, and far beyond. The summit provided information about everything under the sun, relating to how leadership is impacted by our current existential moment and the paradigm shift that we face as a planet.

As Chief Executive of J.P. Morgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, said, “There’s always tough stuff going on, wars and depressions and recessions.” However, the difference now is that leaders are feeling something they haven’t before – unprecedented vulnerability. Instead of solely displaying confidence, some are planning for the worst, while others are attempting to power through and hope for the best.

NVIDIA’s Founder, Jensen Huang, highlighted the AI revolution that will affect every corner of computing and communities, for better or worse. Huang said he enjoys living in a “state where we’re about to perish.” The President of Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen, also noted her fears that China aims to manipulate the country’s elections.

Each conversation analyzed a different aspect of civilization and humanity that, in the end, affects everyone regardless of country or background. I highly recommend watching these interviews in their entirety – not just reading the headlines – to gain an improved understanding of the challenges we are combatting as a global society. One sentiment rang true throughout the diverse sessions: those who keep their wits about them during times of stress and uncertainty have the most success.
