About Keynote Speaker Cal Fussman

About Speaker Cal Fussman…

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

As a highly sought-after speaker, Cal has worked with many companies including Facebook, Turner Broadcasting, Samsung, Pixar, Apple Music, Lululemon, Vans and General Motors. His keynotes and interactive workshops, derived from decades of interviewing, inspire organizations to take a new look at the fundamental aspects of their business.

As a writer for Esquire, GQ, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, and The Washington Post Sunday Magazine, 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, including: Mikhail Gorbachev, Jeff Bezos, Jack Welch, President Jimmy Carter, President Donald Trump, Ted Kennedy, Quincy Jones, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Muhammad Ali, and over five hundred others. The Austin Chronicle has described Fussman’s interviewing skills as “peerless.”

Born in Brooklyn, Fussman spent ten straight years traveling the world, swimming over 18-foot tiger sharks, rolling around with mountain gorillas in Rwanda, and searching for gold in the Amazon. He boxed against then-undefeated world champion Julio Cesar Chavez, won a James Beard award and served as sommelier atop of the World Trade Center. He now lives with his wife—whom he met while on his quest to discover the world’s most beautiful beach—and his three children in Los Angeles, where he spends every morning eating breakfast with Larry King.

Testimonials

Our 50 year heritage at Vans as the original action sports footwear company is a history rich with stories. As we prepare for our next 50 years, we are building a tribal story telling culture across the company. We invited Cal to help our leadership team enrich their communications. Cal’s dynamic ability to paint pictures with his words truly helped our team learn simple but powerful ways to enrich their business messages and interpersonal relationships. He left indelible ink on our Vans team with his words and passionate, personable style.

Kevin Bailey

Global President, VF Corporation, VANS

As we get more digitally connected to the universe it’s easy to lose sight of the soul. Cal’s wisdom, worldly experiences, and heart allow conversations to connect layers beyond a casual encounter. He’s the best of the best at interviewing and storytelling.

Julie Pilat

Head of Music, Curation, and Artist Devlopment, Apple Music

Working closely with HR professionals to compare interview techniques and refresh ideas, Fussman has found that the right questions always evoke emotion, authenticity and truth – regardless of the setting or context.
