Why bury the lead, right?
Big news: Jeff Ma, who was the inspiration for the movie “21″ and the book “Bringing Down the House,” and is the author of the *awesome* new book, “The House Advantage” is coming to keynote Defrag. Besides being a world-famous card counter in the game of blackjack (which he, literally, can no longer play in casinos), Jeff has started several businesses (PROTRADE and Citizen Sports – which sold to Yahoo! in May of this year). Jeff’s current focus is on applying the laws of statistics to business in order to give managers, entrepreneurs and leaders an edge (hence, “The House Advantage”).
Despite my complete incompetence at math, I have a fascination with data and numbers. And, if you put me anywhere near a casino, you’ll soon find me absorbed (for hours on end) playing Craps. Needless to say, Jeff’s pretty much my own personal dream keynoter — and I think once you hear him speak, he’s going to be at the top of your list as well.
If you’ve already registered for Defrag at the discounted “worm” rate — congrats! If you haven’t, then seriously – what are you waiting for?
Oh – and if you think this is the end of the Defrag surprises, think again –and stay tuned.
