Global Conference 2011
A Conversation With Eike Batista and Mike Milken
Monday, May 2, 2011 / 2:30 pm - 3:40 pm
No one ever accused Eike Batista of failing to think big. Already the wealthiest man in Brazil, he has served notice that he intends to become the richest man in the world. Batista got his start by following the gold rush into the Amazon, where his mining operations led to Indiana Jones-style adventures deep in the jungle. Today his self-made fortune spans shipping, mining, power plants, logistics and - above all - vast oil and gas holdings. Don't miss the chance to hear from two of the most influential figures in the world of business as Batista sits down with Institute chairman Mike Milken for a wide-ranging conversation about Brazil's remarkable rise, the changing balance of power in the global economy and where to find the most exciting growth opportunities in the years ahead. Among other topics, they will touch on Batista's "360-degree" approach to business, global energy markets and the game-changing trade relationship between Brazil and China.
