In this episode of GatherGeeks, BizBash chairman and founder David Adler sits down with Steve Clemons, who has begun a role as a senior executive in charge of events at Semafor, a new global news organization launching this fall. Clemons was previously editor at large of The Hill. He also served as the Washington editor at large of The Atlantic, where he was the editor-in-chief of AtlanticLIVE, the brand’s live event series. He specializes in high-stakes gatherings, and in this episode, he gives a master class on connecting people. Clemons also discusses why he believes the best events reach people’s hearts and not just their minds, embracing uncomfortable conversations, and how event pros can engineer moments that bring about change.
