Talks at Google began in 2005 as the Authors@Google series to bring innovative authors to speak at Google. The program has since grown to include musicians, filmmakers, chefs, intellectuals, and innovators. The program brings speakers of all stripes to Google for talks centering on their recently published books and to discuss topics capturing the intellectual zeitgeist of the day.
We host talks at our offices throughout the world. Popular locations include our Mountain View, California headquarters and our offices in New York, Chicago, Cambridge, Venice (California), and San Francisco.
Past participants have ranged from novelist Salman Rushdie and economist Jeffrey Sachs to journalist Bob Woodward and U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain.
The series includes, but is not limited to Authors@Google, Artists@Google, Musicians@Google, Women@Google, Leading@Google, Health@Google, Candidates@Google, Photographers@Google, Comedians@Google, and Olympians@Google.
