Jeff Immelt believes the task of CEO has never been as difficult as it is today. And he should know: He led a team of 300,000 people for 16 years—through recessions, bubbles, and at least three “black swan” events. He transformed General Electric from the quintessential American conglomerate into an innovative, digitally-focused global powerhouse. In the words of the Harvard Business Review, “Immelt utterly remade the organization he inherited.”

How did he do it? How does a leader not only persevere, but thrive, in spite of crises? How do companies create meaningful, lasting value for their customers? Immelt answers all these questions and more, sharing key takeaways from the initiatives he implemented and inspiring audiences to embrace change so that their organization, like GE, is ready for any future.

From the time he took the reins at General Electric, Jeff Immelt understood that in order to remain competitive, the company needed to do two things: innovatively leverage technologies that would allow GE and their customers to achieve leaps in productivity, and enter faster-growing markets around the world at scale. He succeeded at both, transforming GE from an industrial titan into the first digital industrial one by building a strong digital platform and establishing leadership in the Industrial Internet. He also greatly expanded the company’s global presence—today, more than 60% of its revenue comes from outside the U.S. In this engaging presentation, Immelt explains how to build a digital, global company that can withstand change and foster sustainable growth.
