Leaders with a Vision

The bustle of the holiday season means CES 2022 is coming soon with its power to inspire new ideas. We are also inspired by the standouts in our industry. Created in 2000, the CT Hall of Fame will grow to 279 members with the addition of 12 new honorees this year. The classes of 2020 and 2021 are being inducted together since the dinner was postponed last year due to the pandemic. At the dinner, to be held in New York on November 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, we will recognize exceptional industry leaders including our Innovation Entrepreneur Award inductees and the first recipient of the new John and Jane Shalam award.  View the full issue.

From the CEO

A few weeks ago, I had an amazing experience at the Élysée Palace, France’s equivalent of the White House. In a seven-minute speech, French President Emmanuel Macron spoke movingly about my role in supporting France’s innovation ecosystem and bestowed me with the Légion d’Honneur, pinning a medal on my suit jacket. It was one of the most humbling experiences of my lifetime, and prompted some reflection on how important human interaction is to our experience of the world.
