David Geffen rose from the mailroom at the William Morris Agency, to became a major force in the music industry. He produced Oscar-winning films and Tony-winning shows, built and sold several companies and became a billionaire as well as a political mover and shaker.

He’s a leader in the fight against HIV. He helped elect presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, despite having no musical talent.
