Gary Shapiro, CEO of the Consumer Technology Association, lit a firestorm when he chose Ivanka Trump to keynote at CES, the world’s largest trade show. On this brand new episode of Think About This with Shelly Palmer & Ross Martin, Gary explains why Ivanka was the perfect choice for the CES keynote stage. He takes on China, and he shares his views on the future of work, technology, and our democracy itself. You may agree or disagree with Gary’s point of view, but one thing is certain – you will have very strong feelings about the “must listen” episode.
