I give Walter that title because in addition to editing Time and being CEO of CNN, he’s also written runaway bestsellers (about Steve Jobs) and Pulitzer Prize nominees (about Henry Kissinger). In his current job as the head of the Aspen Institute he gets to exercise another of his great skills: conducing interviews in front of an audience.
I’ve had the chance to listen to Walter talk on stage with many people over the years at the Aspen Ideas Festival, and always walked away feeling like I’d been challenged and learned something. Now it’s my turn to face his gentlemanly grilling.
Space at the event itself is limited but our conversation will be livestreamed; click here to watch it on Monday. It’ll also be made available online afterward.
I’m really looking forward to this one. If you turn in, I very confident you won’t be disappointed or bored.
