MUFSO Keynote: The Thank You Economy
Tuesday, October 15 . 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Investor, serial entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author Gary Vaynerchuk will headline MUFSO — and recalibrate how executives think and how they approach today’s customers and business environment. With more power in the hands of consumers, businesses must bring back the touchpoints of caring for their customers, paying attention to details, being responsive and emphasizing quality. In what Vaynerchuk terms “The Thank You Economy,” individuals and brands that compete by “out-caring” and “out-loving” their customers, employees and stakeholders will win.
The high-energy Vaynerchuk, known on social media as @GaryVee, is chairman of the communications company VaynerX as well as CEO of the digital agency VaynerMedia.
He is a five-time New York Times bestselling author who's fifth and most recent book, “Crushing It! How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence — And How You Can Too” is a follow-up to his 2009 "Crush It! Why Now is the Time to Cash in on your Passion."
One of the most sought-after speakers in the world, Vaynerchuk also produces an online vlog called #DailyVee, documenting his life as a CEO in today’s digital world. He also hosts a business and advice Q&A show, #AskGaryVee, as well as the business podcast The Gary Vaynerchuk Audio Experience, a top 100 global podcast.
