Keith Ferrazzi is the Chairman and Founder of Ferrazzi Greenlight, a research institute founded on the pillars of behavioral science and its effects on business. Keith started his career as the youngest CMO at Deloitte Consulting, then went onto become CMO of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, founded and sold two companies, and solidified his status as a successful entrepreneur.
