- Discussion: Investing in Innovation is the Key to Stability and Growth During Global Uncertainties
- Date & time: June 8, 2022, 12:30 pm EDT/New York
- Participants: Glenn Schloss, Vice President of Corporate Communications, Huawei Technologies USA
- Topic: The past few years have seen increased destabilization and global uncertainty, as companies and nations grapple with the impact of COVID-19, disrupted supply chains, climate change, and increased political tensions. No company has been more on the front lines of these issues than Huawei. However, the company remains resilient and has a multi-pronged strategy for not only survival, but growth in new areas. This is a direct result of Huawei’s commitment to innovation. In 2021, Huawei invested $22.4 billion into R&D, and expanded its team of scientists and engineers to drive innovation in ways set to position the company across multiple technological fronts. Glenn Schloss will discuss how a culture of innovation has enabled Huawei to survive and thrive despite global uncertainties, and why other companies need to prioritize R&D.
