In the fall of 2015, shortly after the release of Aaron Sorkin’s film, Steve Jobs, a unique group of executives gathered to discuss what it was like to work with Jobs in his early years at Apple, NeXT and Pixar. This group of executives was largely left out of Sorkin’s film despite working closely with Jobs and helping to guide the evolution of the companies and their products. They gathered to talk about their experiences and to give their perspectives on working with Steve Jobs...and they were all women.
In addition to the panel discussion, Guy Kawasaki had an opportunity to interview this remarkable group of five business leaders and Sony Artisans of Imagery Michael Rubenstein and Jeff Berlin shot the footage with Sony cameras. You can see the interviews as well as the behind the scenes discussions with The Women Of Influence.
