Vanity Fair Magazine once again published its list of the 100 leaders of the New Establishment, a list of the movers and shakers in tech, media, and culture. Robert Mueller oddly appears as number one on the list followed by stalwarts like Jeff Bezos, Reed Hastings, and Bob Iger. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared the 94th slot with other breakthrough politicos Beto O’Rourke, Andrew Gillum, and Ayanna Pressley. Ocasio-Cortez is the only Latino on the list, which is BS. Nonetheless, I enjoy this list much more than other lists such as the Forbes 400 list of the richest people in America. Most of the people on that list inherited their money, and do nothing interesting with their lives. Conversely, the New Establishment is a list of achievers who created breakthrough companies or are influencing our society in major ways. Dara Khrosrowshahi, the CEO of Uber and a speaker at L’ATTITDUE this year, appears at number 11 on the list. Khosrowshahi pulled Uber from the brink of self-induced calamity to once again one of the most interesting and innovating companies in the world. My goal is to work with the L’ATTITUDE team to bring at least three of the New Establishment 100 to our event next year.
About a year ago, I was convinced by some of my closest friends that I should do a podcast. Today it seems like everyone has a podcast, and frankly, 99% of them aren’t very good. I wasn’t sure I could do much better, but I realized I do have some ideas that some people have found interesting in the past.
The decision to invite President Barack Obama to the NAHREP Policy Conference last Spring was a decision I made with the NAHREP National Board. Anytime we have a political figure of that stature at one of our events, we know it will stimulate a lot of buzz among our members and stakeholders.
L’ATTITUDE 2022 is less than two weeks away. This year’s event includes a concert at Rady Shell; the coolest new concert venue in America according to Forbes magazine. The concert is in partnership with La Musica, and will feature music superstars, Juanes and Farukko.
