C-Suite TV announced today its newest business show Executive Perspectives featuring Lisa Stone, Elisa Camahort Page and Jory Des Jardins, the founders of the online community BlogHer. Executive Perspectives is hosted by C-Suite TV founder Jeffrey Hayzlett, and spotlights business thought leaders and innovators in interviews recorded before live audiences at marquee business events. Executive Perspectives joins a strong lineup of business programming on C-Suite TV including C-Suite with Jeffrey Hayzlett, Best Seller TV, (MYOB) Mind Your Own Business and Behind the Brand.C-Suite TV is the only online TV network dedicated to business programming on-demand.
The premiere episode was taped during the C-Suite Network Conference in Marina Del Rey last November when Stone, Page and Des Jardins, the founders of the online community BlogHer, were interviewed live on stage by Jeffrey Hayzlett. In this episode the three partners discuss what makes their partnership work and talk about BlogHer’s acquisition by the leading online women’s media company SheKnows Media. BlogHer was started in 2005 to help women find their voices and turn their passions into content, community and commerce. The BlogHer community has expanded to reach an audience of 100 million across multiple platforms.
Scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, February 4, Executive Perspectives‘ second episode features LeVar Burton, famed for his roles in ROOTS and Star Trek: The Next Generation, and as the host for 26 years of the award-winning PBS series Reading Rainbow. Producer Mark Wolfe, Burton’s business partner in RRKidz, is also featured in the episode. The partners founded RRKidz to update Reading Rainbow for today’s kids through the new Reading Rainbow app, which they financed through a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. Burton and Wolfe reveal how they surpassed their ambitious goal of $1 million to raise an unprecedented $5,408,916 from over 105,000 supporters. The episode was also taped live at the C-Suite Conference stage in November.
“There’s something about interviewing guests like these before a live audience that adds to the impact of Executive Perspectives,” Hayzlett said. “It was inspiring to sit down with LaVar and Mark and learn how they tapped into a tremendous reservoir of good will in order to bring the benefits of Reading Rainbow to a new audience. The BlogHer team had a great story to tell as well, especially coming just days after announcing their new partnership with SheKnows Media.”
Future Executives Perspectives episodes will feature David Pottruck of HighTower Advisors, Peter Phillipi of Strategex, Paul Carbone of Dunkin’ Brands, Jeff Lowe of SMART Technologies, Jordan Brandt of Autodesk and G.J. Hart of California Pizza Kitchen.
