Tim Ferriss: Tools of TitansDate: Tue, January 31, 2017
Time: 7:00 PM
Secrets of success
Tim Ferriss, Entrepreneur; Public Speaker; Author, Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers
Naval Ravikant, CEO and Co-Founder, AngelList—Moderator
Whether you’re a millionaire-in-the-making or just trying to check off your to-do list every single day, you’re always on the hunt for how to do your best, but where do you even start? Enter Tim Ferris of Four-Hour Work Week, and his latest book Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers. Just for you, Tim picked the brains of 200+ of the most creative, successful leaders from around the world to help you do better every day, including Brene Brown, Malcolm Gladwell, Jamie Foxx, Reid Hoffman, and dozens of others. He asked them actionable questions (What does the first hour of their day look like? What do their workout routines look like and why? What are the biggest time wastes they avoid?) so that you can apply their philosophies to your own life. To quote Tim, who tried many of these tactics himself, “The lessons have made me millions of dollars and saved me years of wasted effort and frustration.”
Come hear from Tim at INFORUM, and who knows—maybe you’ll end up featured in his next book!
Sallie Krawcheck: The Power of Women, Work and WalletDate: Thu, February 02, 2017
Time: 6:30 PM
Business help for women
Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and Co-founder, Ellevest; Author, Own It: The Power of Women at Work
Tina Sharkey, Co-Founder and CEO of Brandless, Entrepreneur; Investor; Advisor—Moderator
Are you ready to take charge of your career and financial destiny? Let Sallie Krawcheck show you how to harness your potential and fearlessly go after your goals.
Sallie Krawcheck has been called the most powerful woman on Wall Street, and she’s opening up her years of experience to create a playbook for women’s professional success in Own It: The Power of Women at Work—one that incorporates women’s strengths, allows for non-traditional career paths, and shapes women’s power to advance themselves creatively and courageously.
Sallie once held senior positions at Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and Citigroup. Now, she runs Ellevest, a digital platform focused on redefining investment tools, resources and strategies for women. "[Ellevest] isn’t ‘for women,’ ‘pink it and shrink it,’ ‘make it smaller,'” Sallie shared in a recent interview, reminding us that women often have different salary arcs, live longer on average, and often make decisions such as taking a few years off from career to raise children—all key components in investment strategies.
Sallie’s wide range of experiences—from reaching the top rung in the “boys’ club” of Wall Street to launching Ellevest—mean there are myriad stories, skills, and sage pieces of advice, and we can’t wait to hear from her. Spend an evening walking in Sallie’s high-powered heels with INFORUM, and get inspired to own your future.

Plus, we’re talking the talk and pouring the pour: Participating breweries will have beer flowing after the conversation, and we’ll provide the snacks. Come to learn and sip, sample standards or decide on a new standby, and meet someone new or bring a favorite!

Are you ready to design the life you’ve always envisioned in your head? Let Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show you the way! The Stanford professors and New York Times #1 best-selling authors of Designing Your Life have spent years teaching life design to Stanford students, and are excited to share their experience with INFORUM. Design-thinking principles aren’t just for products and space! Bill and Dave will discuss the "many versions of 'you' that exist," teach us all how to think like designers, and help us prototype our way to a more joyful life. Their approach is applicable and fun, much like great design. Be ready to reframe and revamp your creative thinking.
VIP Opportunity! Prior to the conversation, from 5:45-6:45 pm, Bill and Dave will lead an intimate VIP experience: the Life Design Energy Workshop. The workshop will include an energy exercise and mini-Designing Your Life workshop focused on energy, for those who want the opportunity to try out some of Bill and Dave’s techniques for life design firsthand. Tickets are first-come, first-served, very limited and are non-refundable. To join the waiting list if we are able to release additional seats, please sign up here.
