Billy Beane is considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today. As General Manager of the Oakland A's, Beane shattered traditional MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated more wins by implementing a statistical methodology that led one of the worst teams in baseball—with one of the lowest payrolls— to six American League West Division Titles. That strategic methodology has come to be known as the "Moneyball" philosophy, named for the best-selling book and Oscar winning film that chronicled Beane's journey from General Manager to celebrated management genius.
Isaac Lidsky, entrepreneur and New York Times bestseller, has been called the man with "the most eclectic resume in business." The former child television star ("Weasel" from Saved by the Bell: The New Class) completed an honors degree in mathematics and computer science at Harvard at 19, then went on to graduate magna cum laude from Harvard Law School. He served two Justices as a Supreme Court law Clerk, was undefeated as a Justice Department litigator, founded a tech startup that sold for $230 million, and turned a failing construction subcontractor into a highly profitable construction services company. At just 37, he is the founder of Hope for Vision, a nonprofit that funds the development of treatments and cures for blinding diseases. His main stage TED Talk was viewed more than a million times in its first three weeks, and his book, "Eyes Wide Open" was named one of the Washington Post's top 10 leadership books to read in 2017.
