Warren Buffet, Arianna Huffington, Alan Mulally among those at Microsoft’s CEO Summit

Some of the nation’s highest profile CEOs are gathering in Redmond this week for Microsoft’s annual CEO Summit, where they will talk about emerging trends shaping global business.

More than 130 CEOs and business leaders are attending this year’s summit, which runs Tuesday through Thursday and is closed to the news media. Among them are Warren Buffet of Berkshire Hathaway, Arianna Huffington of Huffington Post Media Group, Alan Mulally of Ford Motor, Jeff Immelt of General Electric and Mike Duke of Wal-Mart Stores.

This is the 16th year for the summit, which began in 1997 when Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates recognized a need for business leaders to gather, share experiences and learn about new technologies, according to the company.

Among the topics on this year’s agenda are moving beyond the age of personal computers and into the world of personal computing, building brands in the 21st century, and the changes taking place in China.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is scheduled to speak Wednesday at the summit. According to the company, here’s what he’ll be speaking about: “Periodically, a company will break through with a new product or service and captivate the hearts of the masses. Breaking through repeatedly requires focus coupled with discipline, passion and tenacity. Steve will explore these principles and discuss Microsoft’s journey pursuing a new phase of growth.”
