Comcast’s Dave Watson to Be Featured Speaker at Exec Ed Program

Dave Watson, president and CEO of Comcast Cable and senior executive vice president of Comcast Corp., will be a featured speaker during the SCTE/ISBE Leadership Institute Executive Education program at Dartmouth.

SCTE/ISBE said Watson will share his perspectives on the industry and leadership during a fireside chat and subsequent question-and-answer session with program attendees on Monday, May 7. 

Watson, a featured speaker at last fall’s Cable-Tec Expo in Denver, will be joined at SCTE/ISBE-Tuck by Tony Werner, president, Technology and Product, for Comcast Cable.

SCTE/ISBE-Tuck will be conducted Sunday, May 6 through Friday, May 11 on the Dartmouth College campus in Hanover, N.H.

The SCTE•ISBE Leadership Institute at Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth, entering its eight year,  attracts top execs, including senior directors, vice presidents, senior and executive vice presidents, as well as C-level executives from across the cable industry, the organization noted.

Pat Esser, president of Cox Communications, was featured at the 2017 program, and previous guest lecturers have included Michael Powell, president and CEO of NCTA—The Internet & Television Association; Neil Smit, now vice chairman of Comcast; Michael Angelakis, now chairman and CEO of Atairos; Balan Nair, now president and CEO of Liberty Global’s Latin American and Caribbean operations; Bob Stanzione, executive chairman and chairman of the board of Arris; Phil McKinney, president and CEO of CableLabs; and Jerry Kent, chairman and CEO of Suddenlink Communications prior to its acquisition by Altice. The late Glenn Britt, the former chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable, began the program’s tradition of industry guest lecturers in 2011, SCTE/ISBE noted.

“Year in and year out, our fireside chat tradition of bringing C-level insights to attendees is among the most highly anticipated elements of the SCTE•ISBE-Tuck curriculum,” Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE/ISBE, said in a statement.  “We’re very grateful to Dave Watson for committing his time and energy to enrich the educational experience for the next generation of industry leaders.”
