Australia Day Party + Fireside Chat with Al Ramadan

  • Nitro 225 Bush Street San Francisco CA 94104 United States (map)

Join us for our first AFN event for 2018; our Australia Day Party + Fireside Chat with entrepreneur and author Al Ramadan.

Al is co-author of “Play Bigger: How Pirates, Dreamers and Innovators Develop and Dominate Categories” (2016). Lauded by the likes of Marc Benioff and partners at Sequoia, Floodgate and other Silicon Valley luminaries, Al's work focuses on helping companies succeed by designing - and then dominating - their category.

Prior to Play Bigger, Al started out in the ‘80s building real time analytics engines for big steel manufacturers and brewing companies. In the early ‘90s he applied data science to Australia’s America’s Cup - an innovation in sports performance analytics. In 1995 he co-founded Quokka Sports, which pioneered data-intensive sports immersion on the Internet and revolutionized the way people experienced sport. While the dot-com crash killed Quokka, the innovations pioneered live on in every online sports experience today, and Al later joined Macromedia (later acquired by Adobe) where he led teams that created the Rich Internet Applications category and helped develop the discipline of experience design.

We hope you can join us on the 25th to celebrate Australia Day with some Aussie beer, wine, meat pies and great company! Feel free to invite other folks you know in the community!
