  4. A Reagan Forum with Peter Thiel and Ryan Holiday — 09/24/2018

    Please join us for a conversation and book signing on Ryan Holiday’s latest book, "Conspiracy: Peter Thiel, Hulk Hogan, Gawker and the Anatomy of Intrigue." Mr. Holiday will be joined onstage in conversation with PayPal cofounder, Peter Thiel.

    Conspiracy is a stunning story about how power works in the modern age—the book the New York Times called “one helluva page-turner” and The Sunday Times of London celebrated as “riveting…an astonishing modern media conspiracy that is a fantastic read.” In 2007, a short blogpost on Valleywag, the Silicon Valley-vertical of Gawker Media, outed PayPal founder and billionaire investor Peter Thiel as gay. This post would be the casus belli for a meticulously plotted conspiracy that would end nearly a decade later with a $140 million dollar judgment against Gawker, its bankruptcy and with Nick Denton, Gawker’s CEO and founder, out of a job. Only later would the world learn that Gawker’s demise was not incidental—it had been masterminded by Mr. Thiel.

    In Mr. Holiday’s masterful telling of this nearly unbelievable conspiracy, informed by interviews with all the key players, this case transcends the narrative of how one billionaire took down a media empire or the current state of the free press. It’s a study in power, strategy, and one of th…

  5. Copy of In Tech We Trust? A Debate with Peter Thiel and Marc Andreessen

    Peter Thiel and Marc Andreessen are Silicon Valley luminaries, epic entrepreneurs and prominent financiers. Both have something to say about where high-tech is taking the world economy, and what is being left behind. Andreessen, co-developer of the first Web browser and now a top venture capitalist, expects software to automate and ultimately dominate most other industries. Thiel, a co-founder of PayPal and an early investor in Facebook, has written in depth about what he considers the stagnation of innovation in fields that others see as emblems of progress: energy, pharmaceuticals, space exploration, nanotech and much more. In fact, Thiel links the austerity gripping the Western world to productivity gains that never happened. Join these acute observers for a unique exchange on science, business and innovation, or the lack thereof.

  6. From Hustle To Wholeness | Khemaridh Hy | TEDxCoventGardenWomen

    Coming off of a 14-year career as a successful Investment Banker, Khemaridh Hy embarked in an intense and uncomfortable journey of introspection. In this deeply personal talk, he shares his journey reconciling his ‘Inner Self’ with his ‘Outer Self’. In doing so, he gives us permission to lean into our own fears and the opposites in ourselves.

    Khemaridh Hy is the creator of Rad Reads and Quartz’s first Entrepreneur in Residence. Khemaridh grew up in New York City and spent fourteen years as a hedge fund investment analyst. The last eight years were at Blackrock, where he oversaw the NY research team for the firm’s Alternative Advisors unit.

    He left in 2015 to explore projects focused on community, generosity, and introspection. RadReads is a passion project that emerged out of the desire to answer the question “What does it mean to live a whole life?” It takes an interdisciplinary approach to answering this question, drawing on fields ranging from neuroscience to sports psychology, then sharing stories to empower its community to take action.

    Khemaridh also works with individual companies on ways to inject compassion and introspection into their cultures. As Quartz’s EIR, Khemaridh is writing, collaborating on numerous digital projects, and supporting new strategic initiatives.
