Acclaimed radio and podcast personality to share insights from some of the world’s greatest business innovators
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., February 27, 2020 – LogicMonitor, the leading provider of IT infrastructure monitoring and intelligence across both on-premises and cloud, today announced that Guy Raz, co-creator and host of NPR’s How I Built This and co-creator and former host of NPR’s TED Radio Hour, will deliver the closing keynote at this year’s Level Up Conference being held in Austin, Texas from May 27-29, 2020. Level Up is the premier conference for ITOps, NetOps and DevOps leaders looking to modernize their organizational approach to IT infrastructure monitoring and intelligence.
Raz’s broadcasts are some of NPR’s most popular shows and are heard by more than 19 million people each month around the world. He is also the creator and co-host of NPR’s first-ever podcast for kids, Wow In The World. Raz is known for diving into the stories behind some of the world’s best known companies, including Starbucks, Instagram, JetBlue Airways and Zappos, to name a few. He weaves a narrative journey about innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists—and the movements they built.
In his keynote, Raz will share lessons he has learned from the world’s greatest entrepreneurs, providing a mixture of anecdotes and lessons on rejection, perseverance, optimism, flexibility, failure, and empathy.
“Through my shows, I’ve had the opportunity to get inside the hearts and minds of some truly impressive entrepreneurs,” said Raz. “The business world is rich with natural drama and I’m excited to share the lessons I’ve learned that helped shape some of the top brands in the market.”
