Lenovo Late Night IT is Back for Season Two

Gerald Youngblood, Chief Marketing Officer, Lenovo North America

Back by popular demand, the world’s first late-night series for IT decision makers, Lenovo Late Night IT, Season 2 debuts February 1!

We’re thrilled to have Emmy-nominated host Baratunde Thurston return to the Silicon Valley for another season of ‘after hours’ sessions with tech titans. Thurston and our inspiring mix of guests will give IT leaders an unfiltered look at the most important topics in tech today – from mental health to automation to the burgeoning metaverse.

Lenovo Late Night IT reflects everything we believe in at Lenovo: bypassing the status quo to deliver innovative solutions that directly improves the lives of our users, customers, and partners.

Since the onset of the pandemic, IT leaders have wrestled with their day-to-day responsibilities alongside fulfilling their strategic seat at the business leadership table. Businesses are looking to IT groups for more insights around emerging technologies and the role they play in shaping the future of their organization. This reality, paired with the remarkable insight that more than 90% of IT decision makers struggle to find high-quality and trustworthy content1, highlighted the need for an unbiased series that cuts through the noise.

Building off the premier season of Lenovo Late Night IT, this season breaks down trending topics and translates their importance for IT leaders and businesses deciphering the constantly-shifting tech landscape. Season two kicks off with Thurston taking on the topic Workplace Flexibility with Kate Lister, President of Global Workplace Analytics and Ryan Anderson, CP, Vice President of Global Research and Insights at Miller Knoll. The episode airs on February 1 at https://lenovolatenightit.cio.com/.

Tune in weekly for episodes that will feature interviews with top executives and experts like Bernie Wong, Founding Member at MindShare, Dr. Lucas Joppa, Chief Sustainability Officer & Senior Managing Director at Haveli Investments, Adriele Parker, DE&I Strategist and Jeff Wong, Global Chief Innovation Officer at EY.

We’re proud to convene a thoughtful, dynamic group of leaders for lively, important but casual conversations about IT and believe that Lenovo Late Night IT will again be must-see viewing for IT decision makers and many more!

Lenovo Late Night IT host Baratunde Thurston is the Emmy-nominated host of the PBS series America Outdoors with Baratunde Thurston, creator of the podcast How to Citizen with Baratunde, founding partner of the new media startup Puck, and author of New York Times best-seller How to Be Black.
