Celeste Headlee has worked as a radio host for decades, and she knows the ingredients of a great conversation: Honesty, brevity, clarity and a healthy amount of listening. In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. "Go out, talk to people, listen to people," she says. "And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed."

Anderson is the CEO of Interface Global™, the largest carpet manufacturer in the US and a leader in the sustainable business model. Currently their corporate goal is to achieve a zero environmental footprint by 2020, and are well on their way with carpet models already available that are made from renewable resources and can be recycled into new carpets once their lifecycle is over. Ray C. Anderson (July 28, 1934 – August 8, 2011)[1] was founder and chairman of Interface Inc., one of the world's largest manufacturers of modular carpet for commercial and residential applications and a leading producer of commercial broadloom and commercial fabrics.
