Each of B2B Next’s 70+ general session, case study presenters, workshop speakers and peer-to-peer roundtable leaders is a leading authority on the topic they will address. This impressive speaker roster is led by conference keynote, Patty McCord, who served as Chief Talent Officer at Netflix for 14 years. Patty is one of the world's leading experts on high-performing cultures and helped author the Netflix Culture Deck, which has been viewed more than 15 million times online and is a document that Sheryl Sandberg once called "maybe the most important document ever to come out of Silicon Valley." Patty will discuss how building a culture of freedom and responsibility strips away the constraints that can thwart high-performers so your teams can be lean, nimble, motivated and happy. In addition, B2B Next’s host and event co-founder, Andy Hoar, not only authored the definitive work on B2B ecommerce but is one of the most sought-after speakers in the B2B space.
