Randall StephensonAT&T CEO Randall Stephenson will be speaking at IGNITION.

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson will be speaking at IGNITION: The Future of Digital about how he keeps the company on the cutting edge by expanding into digital media and beyond.

AT&T pioneered the all-in-one entertainment and communications package with U-Verse, and the company’s recent acquisition of DirecTV takes it one step closer to becoming your home’s digital-entertainment hub.

Under Stephenson, the emphasis has been on adaptation to the marketplace, where the key words are virtualization and cloud computing. That endeavour extends to AT&T employees, who are encouraged to take coding classes on their own time or risk on-the-job obsolescence.

Find out how Randall Stephenson keeps AT&T competitive at IGNITION: The Future of Digital, hosted by Henry Blodget, Business Insider’s editor-in-chief and CEO.

Other speakers include IAC‘s Barry Diller, Airbnb‘s Nathan Blecharczyk, and Cisco‘s Chuck Robbins. Join them to explore how media is changing.
