Zander Lurie is the boss of the world’s biggest online survey company.

The Nasdaq-listed firm has over 17m users and is expanding all over the world.

Lurie reflects on the process by which he became SurveyMonkey CEO after the tragic passing in 2015 of his friend Dave Goldberg, husband of Sheryl Sandberg and former chief executive of SurveyMonkey. “The hairs still stand on the back of my neck, thinking about Dave,” he says.

He also talks about the expectations on a modern tech CEO to take positions on controversial issues in the news, including immigration or President Trump.

And he chats in detail about a number of other things, from the perception that Big Tech now has it all wrapped up to Dublin’s appeal for Silicon Valley.
