The Milken Institute Global Conference for 2017 takes place in Los Angeles on April 30 - May 3, and this year, as in years past, there will be several BlackBerry Executives presenting. As highlighted on the Inside BlackBerry blog, those in attendance will get to hear from Executive Chairman and CEO John Chen, BlackBerry Chief Evangelist Mark Wilson as well as BlackBerry Chief Operating Officer Marty Beard and BlackBerry President, Global Sales Carl Wiese on a wide array of topics.

At next week's 2017 Global Conference, leading global experts, including five BlackBerry executives, will come together to tackle the economic, technological, and business challenges related to this year's topic of "Building Meaningful Lives."

On Tuesday, May 2nd from 8 AM PT, Executive Chairman and CEO John Chen will offer his insights on public policy on the panel, "U.S. Overview: Will the Economic Tailwind continue?"

The following day at 11:15 AM PT, BlackBerry Chief Evangelist Mark Wilson will share his expert thoughts on cybersecurity in healthcare on the panel "Hacks on Healthcare: How to Make a Vulnerable Industry Cyber-Secure."

Our Chief Operating Officer Marty Beard will be participating in a dinner sponsored by Toyota on the topic, "Will Technology Outpace Human Intelligence?" James Kuffner, CTO of Toyota Research Institute, will host the dinner.

BlackBerry President, Global Sales Carl Wiese and I will also be in attendance at Milken.

Those of you who are in town should swing by the Valet Area of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, which is hosting the conference, as we'll be demoing a BlackBerry software powered Jaguar XJ (concept car).

If you're looking for the full schedule, you can check out the Milken Institute Program Schedule for the rundown. Last year, a lot of the presentations were live streamed or otherwise uploaded after taking place, so we'll be looking to post whatever videos are made available when we can from the BlackBerry Executives in attendance. Be sure to check out the full information post on Inside BlackBerry.
