Dave Goldberg, 47, Dies Suddenly - Headed SurveyMonkey, Was Sheryl Sandberg's Husband

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

"SurveyMonkey CEO Dave Goldberg, who grew the company to a $2 billion valuation, died suddenly on Friday night.

Does sexual harassment continue in the workplace because formalized training is so 1980s, in tone, format, and content? Consequently, those being supposedly trained just don't get it - not the fundamentals, not the nuances?

Who's in the audience and why should I care?
