Cal Fussman | Leadership Storyteller

After Cal spoke at Facebook, Chris   Sanders in Global Marketing Solutions said: “We literally have people using the term,  ‘Cal Question.’ He has become a part of our culture.”

Born in Brooklyn, Fussman spent ten straight years traveling the world, swimming over 18-foot tiger sharks, rolling around with mountain gorillas in Rwanda, and searching for gold in the Amazon.

He boxed against then-undefeated world champion Julio Cesar Chavez, won a James Beard award and served as sommelier atop of the World Trade Center.

He now lives with his wife—whom he met while on his quest to discover the world’s most beautiful beach—and his three children in Los Angeles, where he spends every morning eating breakfast with Larry King.
