As a member of the MIT Blackjack Team, Jeffrey Ma created an ingenious method for counting cards–using talent, creativity, math, and teamwork to win millions in Vegas. Ma is the subject of the best-selling book Bringing Down the House and the hit movie, 21, which topped the box office in its first two weeks. He has since co-founded Citizen Sports, a revolutionary sports media company, and is a much-sought after corporate speaker. Ma shows companies how to harness the power of numbers to make better bottom line business decisions; decisions that, often, are the difference between winning and losing. In May 2010, he will release a new book, The House Advantage, about using numbers to create better business.
With metrics being used in sports and business more than ever, Jeffrey Ma makes these innovative new techniques interesting and actionable, applying them specifically to your group. From his personal experiences on the blackjack table to his consultations with professional sports executives and scouts, Ma shares how you can use math to make a positive difference in your organization. Thoughtful and charismatic, Ma’s story from the blackjack table to corporate America will inspire you to change the way you see business.
