Chen would be presenting at the annual “Milken Institute Global Conference” slated to be held in California between April 26th and April 29th. The prestigious conference brings thought leaders, prominent business leaders and government executives on to a single platform to discuss solutions to some of the most pressing challenges which the world is facing currently. The conference will be hosted at Beverly Hills.
The 2015 edition of “Milken Institute Global Conference” has managed to sign up nearly 650 personalities who represent the best in the fields of “business, finance, government, public policy, academia, philanthropy, law, science, news media and other humanitarian cause serving organizations” together to brain storm on the acute issues which humanity is grappling with currently.
Mr. Chen came on board to head BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) management team at a critical juncture, when the company was going through turbulent times some thought that it might seek bankruptcy protection. He has managed to turn around the prospects of the company over the past year and is working towards making his firm relevant to the fast paced digital age we are living in currently.
The CEO will be attending this year’s “Milken Institute Global Conference” as one of the key participants in a panel discussion titled “Health Care in the Digital Age”. Along with him on the panel would be fellow Chairman and CEO Patrick Soon-Shiong of NantWorks, LLC along with luminaries like Anna Barker and Atul Butte who represent prestigious medical academia like Arizona State University and University of California respectively.
The panel participants who represent the technology and the medical domains will debate the limitless opportunities and equally troublesome pitfalls that are available in offering “health care to humanity” by leveraging technological developments in the field of “Mobile telephony, big data, the Internet of Things and social media.”
