Cal Fussman Unboxing | The Art of Asking Questions, Wisdom & Sharing Stories

Cal Fussman is a keynote speaker, New York Times bestselling author, writer-at-large for Esquire Magazine, and corporate culture consultant.

His keynotes and interactive workshops are derived from decades of interviewing hundreds of the world’s most extraordinary people. They inspire organizations to take a new look at the fundamental aspects of their business by changing their questions and improving communication skills through storytelling. In the last year, Cal has spoken at Facebook, General Motors, Pixar, Twitter, Apple Music, Samsung, Twitter, Van’s, Lululemon; colleges like UCLA and Georgetown; and conferences around the world.

His speaking career blossomed after millions heard him interviewed on Tim Ferriss’s podcast. “When I told my podcast listeners that I was doing a second interview with Cal,” said Ferriss, “dozens replied with some variation of ‘Please just let Cal talk for three hours. I could listen to him tell stories forever.’ “

As a writer for Esquire, he has transformed oral history into an art form, conducting probing interviews with the icons who’ve shaped the last half-century of world history: Mikhail Gorbachev, Donald Trump, Jimmy Carter, Ted Kennedy, Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos, Jack Welch, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruce Springsteen, Dr. Dre, Quincy Jones and Muhammad Ali. The Austin Chronicle has described Fussman’s interviewing skills as “peerless.
