Our audience is still pumped up from the last FLF talk with Brian Mohr, COO and co-founder of Y Scouts, who inspired and energized the audience with his talk “Building Purposeful Companies.” Mohr motivated the audience to find their “Y” and purpose in the workplace, and shared how to incorporate a purpose-driven recruiting process into ones’ business, “find someone who has a profound connection to the business and cares about something your company cares about,” he said. Also, Mohr emphasized that an engaged employee is a happy, and profitable, employee, and successful workplaces are shifting to this mindset. Watch his talk, and previous speakers, at AZ Tech Beat TV.
We are switching locations this month and headed to Chandler to Infusionsoft headquarters.
Our next speaker is Greg Head, Chief Marketing Officer for Infusionsoft, who will be sharing the best practices for effectively communicating the value of your company as well as share some stories about Infusionsoft’s recent round of $54 million in Series C funding from Goldman Sachs.
With over 25 years in the software industry, Greg oversees the company’s marketing strategy, communications and partner programs. His passion for helping emerging technology companies grow into global brands is supported by his track record of success creating winning products, brands and businesses.
Greg has held leadership positions at the startup through acquisition stages of two highly-successful CRM software businesses, ACT! and SalesLogix, which have since generated more than $1 billion in total revenue. He also launched a successful consulting company targeted at emerging software and technology service companies, which provides him a first-hand perspective on the unique needs of the small business market. Greg was named the 2013 Marketer of the Year by the Phoenix Business Journal and the Business Marketing Association of Phoenix. He has a B.A. in Economics from the University of Iowa. @GregHeadAZ
