Despite stepping down from Air Force One and into one of our notoriously wet and windy San Francisco mornings, President Obama was in great spirits when I met him on the tarmac of the San Francisco International airport today.
Fresh on the heels of his historic support of gay marriage last month, he found quite the warm welcome in San Francisco.
During a luncheon speech, he brought up about one of my favorite topics—and greatest sources of pride—when he spoke to the Bay Area’s innate culture of innovation, and our confidence in risk-taking as a means of uncovering technologies and business models that have broad positive impact across the globe.
Tomorrow on the show I’ll continue this kind of conversation—risk-taking, innovation and conviction—with renowned director Oliver Stone, Joie de Vivre founder Chip Conley, and The New York Times‘ Thomas Friedman.
Be sure to tune in.
