This week, we have a double header from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland: Craigslist founder Craig Newmark and KPMG chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie.

Doughtie spent her entire career working her way up the ladder, and became the first female chairman and CEO of KPMG in 2015. KPMG is one of the big four professional services companies that other companies hire to do things like accounting and auditing. She spoke with Business Insider's US editor-in-chief Alyson Shontell about her love for accounting, how she bounced back after not making partner as an auditor, and what it was like to be one of the few female CEOs at the World Economic Forum. 

Craig Newmark started an email list in 1995. Eventually it became a website by the name of Craigslist, and selling furniture, renting apartments, and finding a missed connection would never be the same. Newmark isn't too involved with the website anymore, but he spoke with Business Insider's UK editor-in-chief Jim Edwards about becoming the Craig of Craigslist and how he followed his own path to build one of the web's most iconic brands.
