Summit organizer Steve Wardell reacts to Transforming Healthcare 2009 (transcript)

In a “CEO on the street” interview at the end of the Transforming Healthcare 2009 Summit I asked HIL Forum Founder and summit organizer Steve Wardell the following question:

Is this what you had in mind when you organized the Summit?

Steve: The magic on stage is exactly what we had in mind, because of the people we brought in, but we had no idea that it was going to catch on this fast. We’re just real lucky with national leaders and with the most topical issue you can imagine. So, we’re very lucky to have it play out this way.

David: Sounds good. I guess you were lucky. The biggest concern tonight was probably whether the fire marshal was going to come in and tell you you’ve got too many people in here.

Steve: Yes. Gosh, we had people showing up at the door;  I think, our final tally was 610 people, which is a lot more than we thought we were going to have when we started this about four weeks ago.

David: Congratulations.

Steve: Thanks very much.
