Walter Isaacson discusses Steve Jobs’ genius

April 20, 2012

As President/CEO of the Aspen Institute, former Chairman/CEO of CNN and former Managing Editor of TIME magazine, Walter Isaacson’s passion goes well beyond the news. He is a best-selling author and highly-acclaimed journalist, who gives voice to the historical figures and business icons who have shaped and transformed our nation and the world.  Isaacson spent the last two years working on the only authorized biography of Apple Co-founder, Steve Jobs, titled Steve Jobs. Jobs cooperated with this book and asked for no control over what was written or even the right to read it before his death in October 2011. Jobs put nothing off limits and encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly to Isaacson.


Tune in to Walter Isaacson’s live broadcast with us on Timeless Leadership: Leadership Lessons from Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin on September 18. In addition to sharing with audiences the amazing life of Steve Jobs and how he changed the worlds of technology and business, Isaacson will discuss current global events within the framework of history’s valuable lessons and will offer a wealth of insight culled from more than two decades of journalistic experience—both in the field and as head of two of the world’s most influential news organizations. Read more>>
