Guy Kawasaki Speaker Biography


Guy Kawasaki is the co-founder of Alltop.com, an online magazine rack of popular topics on the web, and a founding partner at Garage Technology Ventures. He is also a columnist for the Open Forum of American Express. Previously, he was the chief evangelist of Apple.

Mr. Kawasaki is the author of ten books including Reality Check, The Art of the Start, Rules for Revolutionaries, How to Drive Your Competition Crazy, Selling the Dream, and The Macintosh Way. His newest book, Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions, released in March, is a New York Times bestseller. The lessons in Enchantment are drawn from Mr. Kawasakis tenure at Apple, as well as his decades of experience as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist.

Guy Kawasaki has a BA from Stanford University and an MBA from UCLA as well as an honorary doctorate from Babson College.

Of his time with Apple Computer Inc., Mr. Kawasaki says, When I saw what a Macintosh could do, the clouds parted and the angels started singing. For four years I evangelized Macintosh to software and hardware developers and led the charge against worldwide domination by IBM. I also met my wife Beth at Apple during this timeframe-Apple has been very good to me. Around 1987, my job with Apple was done. Macintosh had plenty of software by then, so I left to start a Macintosh database company called ACIUS. It published a product called 4th Dimension. I did this for two years and then left to pursue my bliss of writing, speaking, and consulting.

Mr. Kawasaki's in-depth knowledge of the high-tech industry combined with his years of management experience enable him to address a wide range of audiences. His particular strength is the ability to quickly understand diverse industries and incorporate his pre-existing knowledge into a highly relevant and customized speech. He routinely gets rave reviews from clients including trade associations, packaged goods companies, service providers, insurance companies, educational institutions, and technology companies. He has spoken for organizations including Nike, Audi, Wal-Mart, Sprint, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Saturn, Stanford University, TIE, Calgary Flames, The Body Shop, MIT, Forbes, and Aveda.

Guy Kawasaki is highly flexible and is willing to create a speech that is tailor-made for any audience.

THE ART OF INNOVATION

The Art of Innovation explains how to create innovative services and products using tactical and practical techniques. Guy uses examples from ice making to telephony to digital photography to expose the truths of innovation. Key principles include: jumping to the next curve, breaking down the barriers, and thinking digitally and acting analogically.

THE ART OF THE START

The speech about how to create a new company. It reflects the knowledge Guy has gained from Apple, starting multiple companies, working as a venture capitalist, and advising dozens of companies. His book by the same name is the de facto standard for books about entrepreneurship.

THE ART OF ENCHANTMENT

The speech explains how organizations and individuals can change people’s hearts, minds, and actions. Enchantment was a New York Times bestseller.

THE ART OF SOCIAL MEDIA

Guy demystifies social media in this speech and makes social media a useful and powerful marketing tool. Many people believe that Guy’s book by the same name is the best book ever written about social media.

THE LESSONS OF STEVE JOBS

Guy is one of the few people in the world who can credibly give this speech. He draws from his experience working for Steve and applies these lessons to business practices.
