Special Event: When Leaders Dream Big: A Conversation with Bob Iger and Jack Salzwedel
Thursday, October 22 3-4 pm CT
DreamBank is proud to present a compelling conversation between leaders who truly understand the power of dreams: Jack Salzwedel, Chair and CEO of American Family Insurance, and Bob Iger, Executive Chairman of The Walt Disney Company.
Iger has spent more than 45 years with Disney and 15 years as CEO, leading one of the world’s largest and most admired media and entertainment companies. Over his time leading the company, he focused on the three fundamental pillars of his strategic vision: generating the best creative content possible, fostering innovation and utilizing the latest technology, and expanding into new markets around the world.
In his New York Times Best Seller, “The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of The Walt Disney Company,” published in 2019, Iger shares the ideas and values he embraced while running Disney and leading its 220,000-plus employees, and explores the principles that are necessary for true leadership. Salzwedel and Iger will discuss those values and principles — including optimism, courage, decisiveness and fairness — and how they apply to finding success in all aspects of life.
Similar to Iger’s journey at Disney, Salzwedel began his career with American Family Insurance in 1983 and held several positions and leadership roles with the company leading up to his election as Chair and CEO in 2011. During Salzwedel’s CEO tenure, American Family increased its investment in its exclusive agency owners through extensive product and technology development, while simultaneously expanding into new geographic markets and distribution channels through acquisitions of three other insurance companies and a merger with another.
A true social media pioneer, Salzwedel has received numerous recognitions as one of the most engaged and best leaders on Twitter from outlets like CEO.com and CSuite Content. He also authored a chapter in The Social CEO, a book featuring insight from executives using social media to drive change and be better leaders.
Join us as these leaders of American Family Insurance and The Walt Disney Company, both champions of being fearless and dreaming big, come together to share their perspectives on leadership, transformation, overcoming setbacks and inspiring those around you.
