Apple Inc. (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook will be speaking at the annual Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet conference. AAPL has updated its investor page with details about the conference and will also offer live audio steam of the presentation by Tim Cook.
Last year Cook had spoken at the same conference, which was his first such appearance as Apple’s CEO. After taking over as CEO of Apple, Cook has made a number of public appearances and even given video interviews to journalists. This could be the beginning of a new trend at Apple under Cook as the company becomes larger each day.
Cook has made notable attempts to keep Apple’s business practices and supplier responsibility more transparent. The annual supplier responsibility progress report acknowledged issues such as under-age workers, overtime with less wages, poor working conditions and more. The company has been making steady progress at fixing these issues and even cancelling orders with suppliers who failed to comply with Apple’s supplier demands.
To show the company’s commitment to address issues Apple even allowed ABC’s ‘Nightline’ to access and report on Foxconn factories in China. In addition to this, the company allowed F.L.A (Fair Labor Association) to audit the factories.
Tim Cook’s first TV Interview as CEO was aired by NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams. The interview gave a glimpse of how Cook remained confident about the company and its talent to keep pushing the boundaries. In this interview Cook reiterated the company’s commitment to bring some of the Mac production to the United States.
While we don’t expect Apple to announce any new product launches at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet conference however, since the company is providing a live stream it would be interesting to note what Cook presents at the conference. The presentation begins at 10:15 AM ET / 7:15 AM PT today and the live audio streaming will be available on Apple’s website.
