July 19, 2017 / Santa Clara, CA


You may know Kara Swisher as the journalist whose questions make Silicon Valley CEOs quake more than the San Andreas fault line. But in her spare time, she talks tech. And this July, she’ll be talking with Uber’s new vice president of leadership and strategy, Frances Frei — a leader with some challenges ahead of her.

That’s right: Recode Executive Editor Kara Swisher will host a live taping of Recode Decode, with Uber’s new hire. Swisher will question Frei on management, culture and Uber’s future on July 19, 2017, at the Ericsson Experience Center in Santa Clara — the heart of Silicon Valley.

We figured you wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to watch Kara Swisher in action. This live taping will include:

  • An unscripted interview with Frances Frei, Uber’s SVP of Leadership and Strategy
  • Meet-and-greet with Swisher and networking time with tech colleagues
  • VIP reception

This time, we’re bringing the red chairs to you! Register now and receive our special listener price of $35.
