Venture Capitalist John Doerr: Measure What Matters

From Google and Twitter to Amazon, venture capitalist John Doerr has played his part in building and funding Silicon Valley’s most successful companies. Starting as a marketing manager at Intel, Doerr worked his way up to back some of the most successful global businesses and was appointed to the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness by President Obama.

In his most recent book, Measure What Matters, Doerr delves into the systems that drive decision makers to consider the purpose behind their goals, leading to better results. From major CEOs to small-business owners, Doerr claims anyone with goals can use his methods to better achieve success.

Join us for an informative discussion on goal making, success and Doerr’s personal experiences in the world of tech.
