Looking For A Speaker For Your Next Silicon Valley Meeting?

Sean Murphy — serial entrepreneur, speaker, blogger, and author

Sean MurphyI love to speak to and interact with people who drive for results. I am happy to speak at local Bay Area events including San Jose, San Francisco, and Palo Alto. I value the opportunity to work with small teams who plan to change the world, creating more opportunities than they started with.

Margaret Mead’s quote “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has” is a source of continuing inspiration.

I am a working entrepreneur who has presented to dozens of Silicon Valley groups since 2005, either as featured speaker, a panelist, or an emcee. I have spoken to a diverse collection of professional organizations including PATCA, IEEE, Bay Area ACM, and SDForum. I  lead a number of interactive seminars on customer development, team collaboration and entrepreneurship each year. I have taken an entrepreneurial approach to life since I could drive. I have served as an advisor to dozens of startups.

I gave a talk on October 16 of 2007 at the KASE/KIN Entrepreneur Academy on “After Launch, Now What.” My theme was “What was once heroic must become routine” (podcast is here, it’s about 16 minutes if you would like to listen).

My favorite topics include:

  • Entrepreneurship & Innovation
  • Customer Development, Sales & Marketing
  • Community Building
  • Team Collaboration: Blogs, Wikis & Social Networking
  • Technology Trends Affecting Entrepreneurs
  • How to Prosper against Larger Competitors
  • Technology Adoption

    […] Authors like Clayton Christensen, Geoffrey Moore, Peter Drucker, and William Davidow provide a strategic framework for high technology business; they explain how the world works. Steve Blank’s “Four Steps to the Epiphany”, Doug Hall’s “Jumpstart Your Business Brain” and Michael Gerber’s “E-Myths Revisited” offer valuable perspectives on business; they explain how teams need to view the world. Finally, Peter Cialdini, Al Ries and Jack Trout offer useful insights and rules of thumb for how to influence and act as a change agent both within a company and externally.
