MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vendavo, a leader in business-to-business (B2B) pricing solutions, today announced John Foley, venture capital executive and former lead solo pilot of the US Navy Blue Angels, as a keynote speaker at Profit Summit 2015. The largest pricing and profitability event worldwide, Profit Summit will bring Fortune 500 business leaders to Dallas from Feb. 10-12, 2015.
"What I learned from being with the Blue Angels has nothing to do with flying itself," said Foley. "I learned that the process of engaging at this high level – when my very life depended on successful communication, accurate information, trust and follow-through – is the same process leaders use to achieve excellence. I'm thrilled to be able to share my behind-the-scenes story with participants at Profit Summit 2015."
A renowned keynote speaker, Foley draws upon lessons learned during his time with the Blue Angels, as well as his post-Navy experiences as an entrepreneur and a Sloan Fellow at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, to provide strategies for breakthrough commercial performance. Foley was a six-time "Top 10 Carrier Pilot" before becoming a Marine instructor pilot and a Blue Angel.
"Some of the most influential minds in business and technology have spoken at Profit Summit and we are excited to have John Foley headline the event in 2015," said David Mitchell, CEO of Vendavo. "Profit Summit 2015 will be our most inspiring one yet. Attendees can expect to engage in vibrant conversations with other Fortune 500 leaders on how they reached new heights in profitability."
The three-day conference will feature three new pre-conference workshops and more than 30 breakout sessions across three tracks with speakers from companies such as Staples, Sealed Air, Emerson, Molex, Medtronic, Eastman and 3M.
