What Makes the Work By Design Summit Stand Out?

Your time is valuable, and we know it.

#Hi!

I’m Claire Diaz-Ortiz.
Or, @claire for short.

I am an author, speaker, and entrepreneur who has been named one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company. I was an early employee at Twitter, and have been called everything from “The Woman Who Got the Pope on Twitter” (Wired) and “Twitter’s Pontiff Recruitment Chief” (The Washington Post) to a “Force for Good“ (Forbes) and “One of the Most Generous People in Social Media” (Fast Company).

I am the author of seven books, and am a frequent international keynote speaker. I write a popular business blog at ClaireDiazOrtiz.com and serve as a LinkedIn Influencer. I hold an MBA and other degrees from Stanford and Oxford Universities and am the co-founder of Hope Runs, a non-profit organization in Kenya.

I’ve appeared widely in most major television and print news sources, including places like CNN, BBC, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Good Morning America, and The Today Show.

There is nothing I am more passionate about than working less and living more, and my life story is a testament to that. I sleep ten hours a night, read 200 books a year, travel more than 100,000 miles every year, and never miss an episode of The Bachelor (#truth).

I can change the way you work. Will you let me?
