CNBC Net/Net is an event-driven, editorial franchise that examines the ways companies are promoting and managing innovation, exploiting rapid change and using technology to accelerate growth exponentially.

In this time of rapid technological innovation, shifting demographics and consumer behavior, change comes lightning fast. CNBC’s Net/Net allows our event attendees, viewers and readers a window into to the future, preparing them to anticipate, react and respond to the latest trends that will affect their operations, and their bottom line. Net/Net is not a tactical guide or a how-to workshop. We are exploring big trends—technological, demographic, consumer—that will have medium to long-term impact on companies.

Who should attend: Net/Net is geared toward senior financial executives. No longer a ‘chief accountant,’ today’s financial chiefs are increasingly relied upon by CEOs and boards for strategic guidance. As the workforce transforms from a stable, career-oriented model to a mobile, flexible one, as supply-chains become more and more globalized, as cloud computing evens the playing field between companies large and small, as cybersecurity becomes perhaps the single biggest risk facing companies … financial leaders need to be constantly updating their knowledge and expectations or they will be left behind. Net/Net, with a tone of urgency and nimbleness, helps our audience make confident, informed decisions.

Joaquin Duato

Joaquin Duato is a globally-experienced, values-driven health care business leader and currently Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee of Johnson & Johnson, the world’s premier health care company. Joaquin is responsible for the Company’s Pharmaceuticals and Consumer sectors, as well as Supply Chain, Information Technology, Global Services, and the Health and Wellness groups. He is a respected industry leader and is the immediate past Chairman of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA).

Joaquin played an instrumental role in leading the turnaround of the Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceuticals sector. A 28-year veteran of the Company, Joaquin was named Company Group Chairman of the Americas in 2009. He then continued leading the global transformation upon his appointment to his most recent role as Executive Vice President and Worldwide Chairman, Pharmaceuticals in 2011. During that time, the sector grew into what is today the fourth-largest innovative pharmaceutical company globally. The results are clear: with 17 new products launched since 2011 and up to 10 potential billion-dollar medicines expected to be launched and/or filed before 2021, the Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceuticals sector is poised to extend its track record of seven years of above-market growth.
As a dual citizen of Spain and the United States with extensive experience living and working on-the-ground on multiple continents, Joaquin brings a unique international perspective to his work. His global experience has given him an appreciation for the value of diversity of thought and opinions, which he brings to bear externally as a member of the Tsinghua University SPS Advisory Board, and internally as the Executive Sponsor of the African American Leadership Council. His commitment to nurturing a culture of diversity was recognized in 2017 by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) when he was named 2017 Honorable Mentor.

Joaquin also has a passion for learning, with an undergraduate degree in economics and business, a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain, and a Master of International Management degree from Thunderbird in Phoenix, Arizona. He is a champion of improving access to both health literacy and education more broadly and recently completed his term as Board Member of the international charity, Save the Children. In addition, he mentors MBA candidates at universities around the world and speaks regularly on leadership in pharmaceuticals at industry forums and academic institutions.

Scott O’Neil is Chief Executive Officer of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment.

Scott O'Neil

Scott O’Neil is the Chief Executive Officer of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, an organization with the mission of building passionate, high-performing teams that inspire possibilities in people to enhance the communities where we live, work, play and win. O’Neil is responsible for the organization’s leadership, strategic vision, operations and global vision, including the pursuit and acquisition of sports, entertainment and consumer-facing properties. He is the acting Chief Executive Officer over all properties within the organization’s portfolio and under the ownership of Managing Partners Josh Harris and David Blitzer, including: the Philadelphia 76ers (NBA), the New Jersey Devils (NHL), Prudential Center, a top five-ranked performance venue in the U.S. located in Newark, New Jersey; Team Dignitas, an internationally renowned esports team, NBA 2K League’s 76ers Gaming Club, the Sixers Innovation Lab Crafted by Kimball, the GRAMMY Museum Experience Prudential Center, the Delaware 87ers (NBA G League), and the Binghamton Devils (AHL). He is an acting Co-Managing partner for Elevate Sports Ventures, a sports and entertainment agency created in partnership between HBSE, Live Nation, the San Francisco 49ers and Oak View Group.

With more than 20 years of experience in the NBA, NHL and NFL, O’Neil has earned a reputation as a leader of leaders and is one of the most connected, dynamic and driven executives in the industry today. Previous executives whom he has mentored and managed run many of the top organizations in sports and entertainment today; those he currently manages are poised to lead the industry into the next generation.

O’Neil’s reputation for authentic leadership, unparalleled drive to innovate, and emphasis on the importance of corporate culture has placed him at the forefront of the industry vanguard. In merely six years overseeing operations for the properties in HBSE’s portfolio, O’Neil led the Philadelphia 76ers to sign the first jersey patch sponsorship in “Big Four” sports history; construct the most technically advanced training complex in professional sports, the Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex; establish an industry-leading Innovation Lab, and become the first U.S. professional sports franchise to acquire a world-renowned esports team. In that same period, under O’Neil’s ambitious and aggressive leadership, Prudential Center has become a top seven and top five most-played venue in the U.S. and the world by Billboard and Pollstar, respectively, and welcomes over 1.75 million fans and event attendees through its doors annually.

Of his professional accomplishments, O’Neil considers his organizations’ corporate culture and dedication to community service his greatest successes and future legacy. The Philadelphia 76ers have been named one of the “Most Innovative Companies” in the world by Fast Company magazine (2018), one of the “Top 50 Cultures” in the U.S. by Entrepreneur (2017), three-times named a “Best Place to Work in Philadelphia” by the Philadelphia Business Journal (2016, 2015, 2014), twice named a “Best Place to Work in Pennsylvania by the Central Penn Business Journal (2018, 2017) and named one of the “50 Best Companies to Sell For” by internationally-renowned Selling Power Magazine. Prudential Center was named a “Best Business” by NJBiz (2016). O’Neil’s belief that those who steward iconic sports and entertainment brands have the responsibility and privilege to use those platforms to mentor the next generation of leaders and make the world a better place is the driving force behind HBSE’s community engagement initiatives.

Recognizing the important role HBSE’s properties play within its communities, O’Neil’s employees individually volunteer 76 hours of service annually in the communities where their fans and patrons live, work and play, resulting in more than 30,000 hours of dedicated community service each year. The Philadelphia 76ers’ charitable endeavor, the Sixers Youth Foundation, has additionally raised more than $1 million for Philadelphia-area youth last year alone and is leveraging sports to help children in need.

A former President of Madison Square Garden Sports, O’Neil was the key architect in some of the largest venue sponsorship deals in history while overseeing iconic sports properties including the New York Knicks (NBA) and New York Rangers (NHL). O’Neil spent seven years as the Senior Vice President of the NBA’s renowned Team Marketing and Business Operations group, where he advised NBA, WNBA and NBA Gatorade League teams on all business operations, CRM Department and NBA Canada business. Earlier in his career, O’Neil served as the President of HoopsTV.com and held positions with the Philadelphia Eagles (NFL) and New Jersey Nets (NBA).

For almost a decade, O’Neil has served as an Alternate Governor for the NBA and NHL.
In 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 the Philadelphia Business Journal named O’Neil to their “Power 100” list of the “most influential people” in the greater Philadelphia region; he additionally received Philadelphia Business Journal’s “Most Admired CEO” honor in 2018. Sports and technology outlet, SportTechie, named O’Neil as 2017’s “Most Innovative Executive”; in 2016, Philadelphia Magazine declared him one of the “Most Innovative Leaders” in Philadelphia. As a young executive, O’Neil was thrice recognized at Sports Business Journal’s acclaimed “Forty Under 40” Awards; launching him into the publication’s renowned “Hall of Fame.” He additionally received “Forty Under 40” honors from Adweek and Sporting News in 2006 and 2005 respectively.

O’Neil’s influence and experience has earned him a place at the podium at some of the largest industry conferences in the world, delivering keynotes at events such as: Leaders in Sport, Beyond Sport, Sports Business Journal’s World Congress of Sport, the IEG Pivot Conference, the Ivy Sports Symposium, Sport Marketing Association’s Conference and more. O’Neil’s leadership practices have been chronicled and applauded in The Outward Mindset by the Arbinger Institute, publishers of The New York Times Best Seller, Leadership and Self Deception, The Orange Revolution by Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton, and Potato Chip Ticket Sales by Kathy Burrows. He has made numerous appearances on CNN, CNBC, FOX Business Network, and has twice co-hosted Bloomberg television’s Bloomberg . He also interacts daily with his more than 18,000 and 30,000 followers on Twitter and LinkedIn, respectively. He serves on the boards for the March of Dimes, Zoomi Inc., the Sixers Youth Foundation and the Sixers Innovation Lab Crafted by Kimball.

O’Neil earned his bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Villanova University and his master’s in Business Administration from Harvard Business School. He currently resides in New Jersey with his wife, Lisa, and three daughters.
