At the Podium

How can a company acquire a $10 billion valuation built on fraud? How does a 20-something Stanford dropout deceive esteemed statesmen and titans of industry? What leads someone to defraud hundreds of employees, thousands of investors, and millions of patients on an unprecedented scale? Tyler Shultz, the man most responsible for bringing down Theranos, answers these questions and more. In a compelling conversation, Shultz takes audiences through his time as an employee at Theranos, discussing everything from his relationship with Elizabeth Holmes, to the faulty blood testing technology, to his efforts to expose the truth about Theranos. With humility and candor, Shultz addresses the importance of corporate governance, modern-day business ethics, Silicon Valley culture, and the lessons the corporate world can learn from Theranos’ historic fraud.
