From growing up in the housing projects of Brooklyn, to becoming a first-generation college graduate, Former Starbucks CEO & Chairman Howard Schultz built one of the world’s most iconic and transformative brands. This February, in a fascinating conversation with Ariel Investments President Mellody Hobson, Starbucks’ legendary leader will share the hard-fought lessons learned as he rose from humble beginnings to world business icon. His new book, From The Ground Up: A Journey to Reimagine the Promise of America, is an allegory on how who you are means as much as the business you want to build.
Howard Schultz understands the delicate balance between profit and human connection. What lessons can we learn from both his meteoric rise and high profile challenges. This is not your average rags to riches story, but what has been called a roadmap for mutual responsibility. How does Howard Schultz envision the way forward? He’ll help us examine how our unique experiences influence how we live, work and love in service to one another.
