Speakers

LARRY ELLISON

“The science of healthcare is more complicated than other industries, but the data management of healthcare isn’t more complicated. There’s no excuse we prioritize credit cards or shopping over health. We have not applied that same rigor to electronic medical records.” 

– CHAIRMAN & CTO, ORACLE

MARC WATKINS, M.D. 

 “90% of Americans want to eat better – let that sink in – but only 50% are willing to pay more for food. How can we help them make that change?”

– CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER, KROGER HEALTH

 

ALEX GORSKY

“If we want to take on the big challenges of healthcare, we need partnerships and different ways of thinking. When we collaborate and bring unique insights together, that’s when we will see the meaningful breakthroughs.”

– FORMER CHAIRMAN & CEO, JOHNSON & JOHNSON

ELLIE RUBENSTEIN

“Problems are rarely solved when you bring the same people together who are thinking the same way. When you bring outliers together, like those here at the FCV Forum, they tend to produce more creative solutions.”

– CO-FOUNDER & MANAGING PARTNER, MANNA TREE

FREDERICK W. SMITH

“Change is really hard. And if you’ve got an organization that doesn’t know you’ve got to continuously change, you’re going to fail.” 

– FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, FEDEX CORPORATION

 

MONA FLORES, M.D.

Reflecting on why their company has come to dominate the AI space: “when we see an opportunity we jump on it. Jensen [Huang, NVIDIA founder & CEO] is the king of pivoting.”

– GLOBAL HEAD OF MEDICAL AI, NVIDIA

 

JOE GALANTE

Emphasizing the need for proactive engagement with technological advancements rather than reactive adjustments: “technology came to us and caused the change, we didn’t go there.”

– MUSIC INDUSTRY EXECUTIVE, SONY MUSIC

SAM HAZEN

Cautioning against mission creep: “moving away from your core competency, your core service offering, it creates confusion in the mission and how we use our resources and capabilities to make your journey as an individual in our company successful.”

– CEO, HCA HEALTHCARE

TODD PARK

On what success truly looks like in healthcare: “if people cannot find fulfillment in their heart anywhere else and clinicians don’t feel like they’re fulfilling their destiny, I don’t think we’ve succeeded.”

– CO-FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, DEVOTED HEALTH

SENATOR BILL FRIST, M.D.

“The inaugural FCV Forum brought together dynamic healthcare leaders, CEOs, disrupters, and entrepreneurs to engage with titans of technology, shipping, logistics, food, and music. Why? In my 50+ year career, I’ve learned that cross-pollination of ideas across varied experiences, geographies, and industries fosters the greatest learning and growth opportunities.”
