Full Bio

Keith Ferrazzi can help: He is the world’s foremost expert in professional relationship development. He has transformed the lives and careers of clients and readers worldwide, bringing 20 years of research and experience to the art and science of business relationship development. His signature focus on success through relationships – a deeply energizing passion – has fueled his own incredible rise to prominence. Both Forbes and Inc. have called him one of the world’s most “connected” individuals.

ACCLAIMED AUTHOR
Ferrazzi has won a place as one of the top thought leaders in American business. His first book, Never Eat Alone, redefined networking today. His #1 NY Times bestseller Who’s Got Your Back focuses on lifeline relationships, a narrow category of deep, trusting peer relationships that disproportionately affect our careers and well-being. Ferrazzi has been named a “Global Leader of Tomorrow” by the World Economic Forum, one of the top “40 Under 40” business leaders by Crain’s Business, and one of the most creative Americans in Who’s Really Who.

DYNAMIC SPEAKER
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: Merill 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 is a frequent contributor to CNN and CNBC, and has been a guest on Larry King Live and Today Show. His writing has appeared in Forbes, Inc., Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, and the Harvard Business Review.

GRATEFUL SON
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 as the cornerstone of success.

ENTREPRENEUR AND CORPORATE WUNDERKIND
As founder and chairman of Ferrazzi Greenlight, a research-based consulting and training company, Ferrazzi provides corporate market leaders with strategic consulting and training to improve sales, performance, and team cohesion, with an emphasis on personal transformation. Ferrazzi launched his career as the youngest Chief Marketing Officer in the Fortune 500 at Deloitte Consulting, and was later the CMO at Starwood Hotels.

PASSIONATE ACTIVIST
Ferrazzi’s foundation, Big Task, applies his company’s Accelerated Relationship Development (ARD) curriculum to aid corporate citizenship and education reform. At the annual Big Task Weekend, companies use ARD to create partnerships that benefit national health and wellness. More recently, Ferrazzi has brought the power of relationship mastery to students in pilot programs at Stanford and Beverly Hills High. He is also a weekly participant in his local Meals-on-Wheels organization.

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.
