Later today, do you fancy joining Eric Schmidt, chairman of Alphabet, for a fireside chat – while engaging in a record-breaking attempt?
Well, you’re in luck, as the Startup Grind Europe conference is holding a live streamed interview with the man himself later today at 16:10 UK time (8:10 PDT, 11:10 EDT over in the US).
All you need to do is sign up for the live stream at this page and you’ll have a spot reserved, plus you’ll be notified just in advance of the chat starting.
Dedication is all you need
The other thing to know is that this is an official Guinness World Record attempt, aiming for the largest audience ever for a live streamed conference. So if it comes off, you’ll be a record breaker (dedication is all you need – well, a bit of punctual timekeeping… that and a decent internet connection).
Eric Schmidt was the chief executive of Google over an entire decade, and now as chairman of the search giant’s parent company, he advises the current leadership on business and policy issues. He can always be counted upon for some interesting and often controversial views.
The live stream will run for around 30 minutes and at the end of that you might find you’re an official world record holder; or at least part of a collective effort to that end.
