Carter writes, “At CNBC in New York, she scored interviews with financial honchos including Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, and former Treasury Secretary John Snow before jumping to the newbie FBN, which launched in October 2007. Claman has wowed from the beginning, managing to snag an exclusive interview with Buffett for her debut.

“Despite Claman’s gumption and drive, FBN couldn’t seem to land big-name interviews at tech conferences. ‘They’d say, ‘Sorry, but you’re fourth in line behind PBS,’’ Claman said. ‘So we thought, ‘Why don’t we just start our own conference?’’

“Voila—3 Days in the Valley was hence born. At the appropriately-numbered three-day annual summit, Claman receives unprecedented access to tech industry heavyweights, up-and-comers and venture capitalists alike, all of whom give viewers information on new trends, products and stars.

“‘We were the first to ever put the Twitter guys on a business network,’ boasts Claman, who also had the foresight to snag LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner way back in 2008 as well.”
