On November 24, 2023, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, the John Adams Institute (JAI) is hosting a talk by Walter Isaacson, addressing the question: are the demons that drive Musk also what it takes to drive innovation and progress?
Walter Isaacson is the bestselling biographer of the likes of Steve Jobs, Henry Kissinger and Edna Doudna. He is also the director of the Aspen Institute, the chair and CEO of CNN and the editor of Time magazine. This time, Isaacson turns his editorial skill to one of today’s most complicated, reviled and revered individuals: Elon Musk. His inside story is filled with tales of triumph and turmoil, and addresses the question: are the demons that drive Musk also what it takes to drive innovation and progress?
Isaacson cuts through the noise as he examines Musk’s origins and rise to fame. His psychic scars and epic sense of mission have ensured he’s rarely out of the spotlight: from celebrity cage fighting matches with billionaire rivals to his creation of some of today’s most influential companies, Musk has developed a roguish persona that is by turns invigorating and infuriating.
The event will take place at Dominicuskerk, Korte Korsjespoortsteeg, Amsterdam.
