“Genius expert” Isaacson is credited with unlocking the codes of innovation and the people who dream and execute game changing breakthroughs. His biography, “Steve Jobs,” broke U.S. biography sales records and his latest book, “The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution,” is nominated for a National Book Award. TIME magazine named him one of the World’s 100 Most Influential People in 2012.
A former CEO of CNN and now the president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, his work fosters leadership based on enduring values and nonpartisan approaches to critical issues. He argues that the future belongs to those who can appreciate the arts, the humanities and the sciences.
