About This Meeting

Verizon Chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam addressed the Detroit Economic Club Monday, September 8th, 2014, on the issue of technology innovation and the positive impact of connectivity.

A primary focus was on technology’s ability to positively impact the lives of Americans in many ways, including improved health and economics.

“There’s a great study that was published, I think just last month, Cisco does this every year, they update it. And their prediction is within 10 years there will be $14 trillion of economic benefit to the ‘internet of things.’ So, how do you get there? Well, we’re focusing kind of on four major areas. Education is one, healthcare, energy management and then transportation,” McAdam said.
