Bloomberg TV Series: “Big Problems, Big Thinkers”
For some questions, there are no easy answers.
In partnership with mastermind Terre Blair, Bloomberg Media presented live on the main stage at DMEXCO (Cologne, Germany) a new video series, Big Problems, Big Thinkers, that tackles the most critical issues of our time. In conjunction with Bloomberg Media COO Jacki Kelley and a special newsmaker, Terre Blair showcased how the brightest minds such as Warren Buffett, His Holiness The Dalai Lama and more are confronting climate, inequality of opportunity, economy, media, foreign affairs and personal success.
Bloomberg Media presents a behind-the-scenes look at some of its newest digital video-television series at DMEXCO – including “Big Problems, Big Thinkers,” in which a group of the world’s most extraordinary leaders tackle the world’s toughest challenges.
VIDEO PREVIEW: Big Problems, Big Thinkers:
Amy Marks, Global Head of Marketing for Bloomberg Media, spoke with Beet.tv about the upcoming series. “These are hard conversations that we at Bloomberg were able to have,” she said – and with luminaries like His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Warren Buffett, and film director Steven Soderbergh confronting issues such as climate change, the economy, and how to measure personal success, the show goes well beyond the typical interview series.
“We’re going to be part of the new Motion Hall in its first year at DMEXCO,” Marks added. The new space at DMEXCO, the world’s largest annual trade event for digital media professionals and marketers, is devoted to digital video. There, Bloomberg Media Chief Operating Officer Jacki Kelley will join special guests, including “Big Problems, Big Thinkers” mastermind Terre Blair and Bloomberg Television anchor Caroline Hyde, for a special preview of the thought-provoking solutions offered by the leaders who opened up to Blair.
“We’ll also be highlighting a lot of our other digital video,” said Marks, including “Peer-to-Peer,” a digital-first show starring David Rubenstein that also debuts this fall, the currently-running Hello World program – which was the first series to incorporate Snapchat – and more.
