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.
