Online: CEO conversations with former CEO of General Electric, Jeff Immelt

Book launch - Hot Seat: Hard-won Lessons in Challenging Times by Jeff Immelt
The Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) invites members of the media to join us for a conversation with former CEO of General Electric, and author of Hot Seat: Hard-won Lessons in Challenging Times, Jeff Immelt. Named one of the “World’s Best CEOs” three times by Barron’s, his memoir offers insight into the hard-won lessons he learned from his experience leading GE immediately after 9/11, through the economic devastation of the 2008–09 financial crisis, and into an increasingly globalised world.

Hot Seat offers a rigorous and candid self-interrogation of Immelt’s tenure, detailing for the first time, his proudest moments, missteps, and the lessons he learned battling one crisis after another as he led GE into the 21st century.

Please join GIBS Interim Dean, Dr Morris Mthombeni, as he chats with former CEO of General Electric, Jeff Immelt.
