Former CEO; Award-Winning Entrepreneur; Author; Columnist, Financial Times; Professor of Management

Born in Texas, raised in Holland and educated at Cambridge University, Margaret Heffernan has led a rich and diverse career as a director, writer and producer for the BBC and A&E, as well as a music video producer for the London Chamber Orchestra. Under her leadership at the trade association IPPA, which represented the interests of independent film and television producers, it was once described by the Financial Times as “the most formidable lobbying organization in England.” Returning to the states, Heffernan developed interactive multimedia products with Peter Lynch, Tom Peters, Standard & Poors and The Learning Company.

Hubert Joly

Former Chairman & CEO, Best Buy; Trustee, New York Public Library; Senior Lecturer, Harvard Business School; Author, The Heart of Business

During Hubert’s time at Best Buy, he and his team rebuilt the company into one of the nation’s favorite employers, a sustainable leader, and an innovator, dramatically increasing customer satisfaction and growing the company’s stock price 10-fold. His greatest achievement, however, may have been to make himself dispensable: he decided to step down as CEO in 2019 and as executive chairman in 2020, and pass the baton to a new generation of leaders. Hubert’s purpose in life is to make a positive difference on people around him and use the platform he has to make a positive difference in the world. Besides serving on the boards of Johnson & Johnson and Ralph Lauren, he now spends most of his time as a lecturer at Harvard Business School and supporting other leaders seeking to become the best versions of themselves and to lead with purpose and humanity. He is also actively invested in efforts to advance meaningful diversity and inclusion. Hubert has been recognized as one of the one hundred “Best-Performing CEOs in the World” by Harvard Business Review, one of the top thirty CEOs in the world by Barron’s, and one of the top ten CEOs in the U.S. in Glassdoor’s annual Employees’ Choice Awards. His latest book is the Wall Street Journal best-seller, The Heart of Business, which has been called one of the defining business books of this decade.”
