Pope Francis to Headline Time Inc. Conference


It doesn’t get much bigger than the pope, and Time Inc. has him. The company has landed Pope Francis as the headliner for its Fortune/Time Global Forum conference.

The conference—taking place Dec. 2 and 3—will be held in Rome and at the Vatican because it’s quite an ordeal for the pope to travel; what with all the robes, spell books and such.

The theme of this year’s global forum is “The 21st Century Challenge: Forging a New Social Compact,” so attendees should be ready for “a solutions-based conversation aimed at encouraging transformative actions by the private sector to help create a more inclusive and humane economy and aid in eradicating poverty and the refugee problem around the world.”

The conference will be led by Time Inc. chief content officer Alan Murray and Time editor in chief Nancy Gibbs.
