Keith is a #1 NYTimes best selling author, former CMO of both Deloitte and Starwood hotels, currently the CEO of a promising new SaaS platform, and one of the worlds most sought after speakers. The evening is geared for anyone leading people, selling, growing a career, or raising money.
As founder and CEO of Ferrazzi Greenlight, Keith Ferrazzi transforms behaviors that block global organizations from reaching strategic goals into new habits that increase shareholder value. The firm’s Greenlight Research Institute has proven the correlation between practices that improve relationships and business success, particularly in sales performance and team effectiveness in an increasingly virtual world. Greenlight’s behavior engineering methodology for diagnosing and instilling the highest ROI behavior change is based on a decade of field engagements with iconic global organizations.

Keith is the author of the bestsellers Who’s Got Your Back and Never Eat Alone. Ferrazzi has been published in The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Inc., and Fast Company. He was the youngest person to make partner and hold the position of Chief Marketing Officer at Deloitte Consulting, where he raised Deloitte’s brand recognition from lowest to a primary position, spurring the highest growth rate in the industry. register-now-300x70 When: August 20, 2015 from 6:30pm till 8:30pm PDT Where: Dev Bootcamp San Francisco, 633 Folsom Street (at Hawthorne), 6th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107 Bio: KEITH FERRAZZI has won a place as one of the top thought leaders in American business. His first book, Never Eat Alone, redefined networking, once a maligned practice, as the lingua franca of our times. His #1 NY Times bestseller Who’s Got Your Back focuses on building relationships with a trusted team of peers who provide the perspective and candid advice that advances our careers and well-being. Ferrazzi has been named a “Global Leader of Tomorrow” by the World Economic Forum and one of the most creative Americans in Who’s Really Who. Ferrazzi moves audiences to action and has been enthusiastically recognized as one the world’s most dynamic, engaging speakers. He has received accolades from an impressively diverse list of listeners: Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, the United Nations, Facebook, the World Economic Forum, Kraft, GM, Century 21, AT&T, and Aon, to name a few. Ferrazzi has been a contributor to CNN, CNBC, and Ali Veshi’s Real Money and a guest on Larry King Live and the Today Show. His writing has appeared in Fortune, Forbes, Inc., Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, and Harvard Business Review. Ferrazzi grew up in Latrobe, PA, where his father was a steelworker and his mother a cleaning lady. He and his entire family worked double shifts to send him to the very best prep schools – and ultimately to Yale undergrad and Harvard Business School – imbuing in Ferrazzi a sense of gratitude that has deeply influenced his message: Generosity in relationships is the cornerstone of success. Ferrazzi launched his career as the youngest Chief Marketing Officer in the Fortune 500 at Deloitte Consulting, and was also CMO at Starwood Hotels and CEO at YaYa Media before becoming founder and chairman of Ferrazzi Greenlight. At its core, Ferrazzi Greenlight is a research institute focused on human behavior change that drives desired organizational outcomes. Ferrazzi leads research that both supports and draws upon consulting work with large companies in four areas of behavior-based performance acceleration: strategic account selling, high-impact teams, culture change, and multi-outlet management (restaurants, auto, retail, and hospitality). Ferrazzi’s ultimate aim goes beyond the workplace. He aims to change behavior in a way that impacts disenfranchised populations in the world via the work of his Greenlight Giving foundation through partnerships with the private, government and non-profit sectors. Greenlight Giving programs include Serve & Grow (bringing sustainable changes to Guatemala), Words 2 Life (helping kids in the foster care system to develop a network of positive mentors and role models through music), and CollegeCONNECT (teaching students techniques and skills to develop meaningful, lasting, and mutually beneficial relationships).

unnamedBillie Mandel is the new Director of User Experience at FiveStars, and teaches UX design at General Assembly. She is a design strategy geek with 17+ years leading teams of software creatives — UX and visual designers, researchers, content people, product people, front-end developers — the folks who figure out what to build, why, and how to make it amazing. The design problems that excite Billie most are at the intersection of business, product strategy, and cross-device design, with a little bit of social software and game design theory thrown in for spice and compelling-ness.
Billie is also a synaesthete, a painter and sculptor, and a novelist, as well as a Lambda Literary Fellow. She has social science degrees from Stanford and Berkeley that she uses in her professional life more often than anyone would ever guess.

She also uses the word "badass" a little too often.  billiemandel.com    @synaesthete

Your ticket includes a glass of wine or beer (or something non alcoholic), a main course (vegetarian or carnivore, served family style) and the fabulous company of 49 like-minded LBTQ women (all letters welcome!) About Pisco & Destino A destination for 15 years, Destino focuses on Latin American small plate with a special emphasis on Peruvian cuisine. The bar boasts over 65 varieties of pisco which means we could all have one and still not get through all of them! There's a full bar, of course, and an extensive South American wine list.
Lezervations is a quarterly social series initiated to provide opportunities for LBTQ women to make business and personal connections. We are partnering with StartOut, which means your registration will connect you to the Lezervations and the StartOut mailing lists.
