We’re excited to announce Jeff Ma, infamous member of the MIT Blackjack Team, as our Symposium Scottsdale Keynote Speaker! 

Jeff Ma created an ingenious method for counting cards – using talent, creativity, math, and teamwork to win millions in Las Vegas. Ma was the inspiration for the best-selling book Bringing Down the House and the hit movie, 21, which topped the box office in its first two weeks.

The Keynote Address:

21 and Other Numbers That Changed My Life: Harnessing the Power of Analytics to Improve Your Business

Drawing from his unique personal experiences, from the blackjack table to consulting professional sports teams, Ma talks about innovative metrics in a way that will make you reevaluate how your group accesses talent, finds undervalued assets, and measure the true worth of your business. By eschewing emotion and honing in on hard facts and results, Ma has helped usher in what Newsweek calls “a new age of numbers in corporate America.”

In recent years, Ma has since helped start four different companies including GolfSpan.com (sold to Demand Media), CircleLending (sold to Virgin), Citizen Sports (sold to Yahoo) and tenXer (acquired by Twitter) and become a sought-after speaker. Ma shows companies how to harness the power of numbers to make better bottom line business decisions; decisions that, often, are the difference between winning and losing.
