They debate the need for a shared framework around data sharing and key success metrics when 2 companies partner together to reach an end consumer and finally wrap up with talking about how a leader needs to own the problem but not the solution and how to problem-solve as a team bringing together different styles, different skills, different perspectives to find better solutions.
