ACG DealMakers 2009 Outlook Conference
February 12 ● Boston
Moderating a panel discussion about the state of private equity and private equity deal-making. This event had around 500 people last year, and we’re expecting another packed house. The panelists include Brooke Ablon of Fidelity Equity Partners, Chuck Brizius of THL Partners, Geoffrey Rehnert of Audax Group and Steve Tadler of Advent International.

VC in the Rockies
March 4 ● Beaver Creek
Participating in a morning media panel, alongside Rebecca Buckman of Fortune, Spencer Ante of BusinessWeek, Mark Veverka of Barrons and Therese Poletti of MarketWatch. It will be moderated by Seth Levine of Foundry Group, who I’m sure will try to put us back a bit on our heels (revenge of the VC…)

Buyout East
March 26 ● New York City
Keynote interview of Peter Nolan, managing partner of Leonard Green & Partners. I’m hoping he brings Whole Foods coupons…

ACG InterGrowth
May 12 ● Las Vegas
Moderating a panel on social networking and deal-making. Then we’ll all retire to the casino, because 11am is a perfect time for blackjack and watered-down drinks…
