WebexOne 2021: A fantastic line up of luminary speakers

Turning big ideas into billions: Bootstrapping it with Spanx Founder and CEO Sara Blakely

Expect to be inspired by our fabulous guest speaker Spanx Founder and CEO Sara Blakely. She’s been on TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the world and was featured on the cover of Forbes Magazine as the youngest self-made female billionaire. Sara will sit down with Cisco’s EVP/GM of Security and Collaboration Jeetu Patel and discuss her journey of turning $5,000 in personal savings into a billion-dollar global enterprise fueled by an insatiable desire to improve the way women feel in their clothes. They will discuss creativity, fearlessness, failure, work-life balance, and the humor necessary for bootstrapping to billions. And finally, they will touch on leading through a pandemic by leaning into technology, culture, and empathy.

SpaceX Astronaut Dr. Sian Proctor and NASA astronaut Nicole Stott discuss making the final frontier accessible to all

As we look to the Moon, Mars, and beyond, a diverse workforce galvanized by a shared purpose with an equal seat at the table will propel humanity faster and further than ever. Veteran NASA astronaut Nicole Stott and SpaceX Astronaut, Inspiration4 Mission Pilot, and Artist Dr. Sian Proctor will sit down for a conversation with me on why inclusivity is critical to space exploration, and share thoughts on isolation, teamwork, technology, art, space toilets, and boldly going where no one (or very few) have gone before.
