Fortune Live, January 1: The Best of 2015
Over the past year, Fortune Live sat down with the visionaries leading some of the country’s hottest startups as well as the CEOs of many Fortune 500 companies.
In today’s special edition of Fortune Live we’ve assembled some of the best insights offered by these high-wattage guests.
We kick things off with executive leadership from General Electric (GE), Ford Motor (F), and CVS Health (CVS). GE’s Vice Chair Beth Comstock explains how the streamlined global conglomerate is innovating for the future. Ford CEO Mark Fields discusses the opportunities presented by tech-enabled cars. And Helena Foulkes of CVS Health reveals why the healthcare giant took the bold step of halting cigarette sales.
Next, Fortune Live turns to politics. We revisit conversations with Ivanka Trump–the daughter of Republican candidate Donald Trump–and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D).
Then we look toward Silicon Valley to find out if its unicorns are overvalued. Is there a tech bubble that’s about to burst? How are some disruptive startups dealing with tough questions about their business models? To answer those questions, we speak with Warby Parker’s Dave Gilboa, Slack’s Stewart Butterfield, AirBnB’s Brian Chesky, and Box’s (BOX) Aaron Levie.
Rounding out the show are thoughts from some powerful women about disruption in the C-suite. What’s it going to take to launch more women into positions of power? We hear from Sam’s Club (WMT) CEO Rosalind Brewer, General Motors (GM) CEO Mary Barra, the NFL’s first female coach Jen Welter and MSNBC’s (CMCSA) Mika Brzezinski.
The full show and breakout segments will be available to watch on demand after the show concludes. You can find them at fortune.com/fortunelive.
