CEO of Ferrazzi Greenlight, Inc. & Bestselling Author of "Never Eat Alone"

Keith Ferrazzi is recognized as a global thought leader in the relational and collaborative sciences. As Chairman of Ferrazzi Greenlight and its Research Institute, he works to identify behaviors that block global organizations from reaching their goals and to transform them by coaching new behaviors that increase growth and shareholder value.

A New York Times #1 best-selling author of Who’s Got Your Back and Never Eat Alone, as well as a frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Fortune and many other leading publications, Ferrazzi’s gained over 20 years of experience, from the C-Suite to founding his own companies, and distilled those years and experiences into practices and solutions he brings to every engagement.

More recently, in partnership with Zappos’ Tony Hsieh and Groupon’s Brad Keywell, Ferrazzi launched Yoi, a digital onboarding tool that drives transparency, improved coaching, and real-time feedback between busy managers and their new hires. The platform utilizes practice-based learning and quantitative assessments to deliver increased productivity in the workplace.

Speech Topics

Who's Got Your Back

"Cancel-proof" your event with Ferrazzi's uniquely effective four-stage formula, based on the book's breakthrough program to build the relationships that create success:

  • Preparation: A practical and tactical set of directions on how participants maximize their ROI at your event.
  • Permission: Participants are given permission to let down their guards to unlock new potential
  • Practice: Participants form buddy groups, with built-in exercises to form mutual bonds
  • Permanence: Not only do these buddy groups make commitments to help each other at the conference, they also commit to helping make each other's careers and individual initiatives more successful in the weeks and months to come.
  • Who's Got Your Back: Moving From Membership to Community

This keynote is a unique and effective four-part presentation tailored specifically for associations. It is based on Ferrazzi's New York Times bestseller Who's Got Your Back.

With a focus on interactivity, Ferrazzi creates a sustainable community within your membership by “unleashing the power in the seats” during his keynote presentation. Participants practice letting their guards down and making mutual commitments to each other's success at the event and beyond. The result is a year-round value for your membership, increase in renewal rates, and the assurance that your annual event is one that no one will miss.

Building Your Personal Brand in the Marketplace

In a crowded marketplace, how can you differentiate your organization from the pack? How can you build and sustain a brand so powerful that it's as well-known and trusted by the world at large as by people inside your organization? The answer is relationships.

Ferrazzi's presentation, which draws on his own experiences as well as the knowledge base of his Greenlight's High-Touch Marketing consulting practice, leaves audiences motivated and prepared to develop the collaborative relationships and team culture that propel success.
