Gates Starts ‘Conversations’

Philanthropic business leaders – starting with Microsoft’s Bill Gates – take center stage in a new weekly series debuting today at Bloomberg.com.

The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations features Rubenstein, a noted businessman/philanthropist in his own right, talking with guests about “their personal and professional journeys.” Interview subjects following Gates will be, in order: Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, American Express CEO Ken Chenault, Alphabet Executive Chairman Eric Schmid428974logot, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi.

Each episode will be made available on the web in the morning prior to its premiere that night on Bloomberg’s TV network at 8 pm ET. Following today’s Monday premiere, the series moves to Wednesdays starting next week, also at 8 pm. The evening broadcasts can also be seen on the network’s YouTube and Bloomberg.com live streams.

In today’s installment of The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations, which you can see below, Gates – the founder of Microsoft and co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (and avid bridge player!) – reflects on being a self-described “geek” and how his wife and children — and his mother’s death — changed his perspective on work.
