Keynote Jeff Ma is a member of the MIT Blackjack Team featured in the best-selling book Bringing Down the House and the box office-topping hit movie 21, but there is more to this entrepreneur, media mogul than blackjack. Jeff Ma shows IT leaders how harnessing the power of technology-driven platforms, using not only social media, but concrete data and numbers, can create incredible success. Whether sharing his personal experiences on the blackjack table or his consultations with sports executives and scouts, he shows how you can use math and media to make a positive difference in your organization.
