2016 Keynote: Day 1

Innovate, disrupt, & take risks

As the mastermind behind iconic characters Elaine Benes (from the NBC hit series Seinfeld) and Selina Meyer (from the HBO series Veep, now in its fifth season), Julia Louis-Dreyfus has been riveting audiences with portrayals that upend the stereotypes over her impressive 30+ year career. 

In her personal life, Julia is a social activist who is passionate about climate change, water conservation, children’s education, and the power of design. Important topics that we connect with, too.

Interviewing Julia is Terry Gross, who has conducted more than 13,000 powerful interviews in her illustrious career as host of Fresh Air. The show doesn’t just cover popular culture, it’s part of it. Terry has been name-checked on Saturday Night Live, Girls, HBO’s Eastbound and Down, and How I Met Your Mother.
