Good episode? Give it some love!
We are back with Season 2 and we promise this is going to be just as engaging and thought-provoking as the first, if not more so! We have a whole lot of special surprises in store for you with a star-studded lineup of guests sharing their life stories and perspectives on everything you have come to know and love about our content so far.

To kick things off today, we are joined by none other than John Furner, the President, and CEO of Walmart US! This means that John is in charge of strategy and performance for more than 4700 stores, for the world's largest company! John was also the CEO of Sam's Club from 2017 to 2019, and his work and legacy there stand as a testament to the type of man he is. One of the most remarkable things about John is his journey with Walmart, starting out in 1993 as an hourly associate and working his way up and through as many positions as you can imagine, to his role in leadership today.

Our guest has also spent time in China and Mexico during his career and we get to hear his reflections on the lessons these periods abroad provided for him. In our conversation, John talks about leadership in the current era, the impact of the conversation about racial injustice and the murder of George Floyd, and leaves us with a message about balancing reality and hope. So for all this and much more from a beacon of light in the business world, join us on The DäBU today!
