Ron Insana, a CNBC contributor, financial journalist and bestselling author, is scheduled to speak at the National Chicken Council’s 65th Annual Conference, scheduled October 29-30 at the Four Seasons in Washington, D.C.

BMO Harris Bank has been instrumental in making Ron Insana’s appearance possible at the October conference by serving as a conference sponsor.  NCC is grateful for BMO’s generosity.

Insana will discuss the forces driving the economy and how will they impact you, your business, your industry, and your investment decisions.

Ron is currently a contributor to CNBC, where he also served as an anchor and correspondent since 1991. As a financial journalist, Ron stands alone as someone who ran his own hedge fund. He has also written for Money Magazine, USA today, and authored four bestselling books on investing and reading the financial market.

In Ron’s speeches, he explains how Wall Street, Main Street, and Washington intersect. He was a trailblazer, among the first group of financial journalists who launched the Financial News Network (FNN) in 1984.  When FNN merged with CNBC in 1991, Ron continued to cover the most important stories affecting the financial markets as an anchor and correspondent on CNBC and on other NBC news outlets. In the process, he became one of the most visible reporters broadcasting financial news.

Ron is also well known for his high-profile interviews, including President Clinton; President Bush; billionaire investors Warren Buffett and George Soros, as well as captains of industry Bill Gates, and the late Steve Jobs.

Ron has been named one of the “Top 100 Business News Journalists of the 20th Century” and was nominated for a news and documentary Emmy Award for his role in NBC’s coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attack.
