Uplifting a Region Through Courageous Leadership — A Conversation with Danny Meyer


• 4–5 p.m.: A Conversation and Moderated Q&A with Danny Meyer
• 5–6 p.m.: Networking and Reception

Values-driven courageous decisions made by leaders have the opportunity to have incredibly positive, meaningful and lasting impacts on the communities in which we open. Collectively, we aspire to uplift our region, and that requires courageous decisions. We have an opportunity to learn from one of the most influential leaders in the country about the conscious choices that he made as a business leader that helped to uplift New York City. We hope that this conversation will not only inspire leaders in our region to make courageous decisions, but that it will also provide practical advice to enable and empower us to do that.

Danny Meyer was appointed to be the Chairman of the Board of the New York Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) as a result of his innovative and courageous decisions that have helped to uplift New York City, including:

• Consistently making prescient investments in burgeoning neighborhoods
• Leading the IPO of USHG Acquisition Corp., a $287 million special purpose acquisition corporation (SPAC)
• Leading the IPO of Shake Shack (SHAK), known as one of the most successful IPOs in the history of fine casual dining
• Eliminating tipping in his restaurants in order to professionalize the hospitality industry

Join us and Danny Meyer to learn about his experience, expertise and insights as an ethically-driven and influential business leader to collectively support our efforts to uplift our region.
