Big news: billionaire, philanthropist, Chairman and CEO, will take center stage at Inman Connect New York.

Schwarzman joins an elite lineup of leaders speaking at Connect, including soccer legend Abby Wambach, Bravo star Ryan Serhant, Realogy CEO Ryan Schneider, eXp CEO and Founder Glenn Sanford, War Hero Kirstie Ennis, HomeServices of America Executive Chairman Ron Peltier, RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos, and Keller Williams President Josh Team.

Stephen Schwarzman started working in his father’s Philadelphia linen storage at age 10. From there, he followed his natural talents and entrepreneurial zeal to Wall Street, where, in the roaring 1980s, he co-founded Blackstone, which has grown to become one of the world’s leading investment firms.

He’ll be sharing his incredible life story and insights from his new book, “What It Takes: Lessons in the Pursuit of Excellence.”

“It’s as easy to do something big as it is to do something small,” Schwarzman says. “Both will consume your time and energy, so make sure your fantasy is worthy of your pursuit, with rewards commensurate to your effort.”
