** Can AI fix meetings?

When we spoke with Omar Tawakol to confirm his participation at InAwe17, suddenly another caller joined. It was an Artificial Intelligence named Eva. She listened to our conversation, filtered the most important parts and sent us an email with takeaways from the call afterwards.

Still in preview mode, Eva could be the future of productivity. No more notetaking, no more distractions. ”Meetings are one of the most expensive endeavors of organizations today, with so little to show”, said Omar. “Meetings are ripe for disruption. I believe AI can fix it – and I’m excited to discuss it with your community of inbox experts.”

We’re excited to welcome Omar Tawakol, the CEO of Workfit, whose team is building Eva, at InAwe17. Prior to Workfit, the Silicon Valley based Stanford graduate was the founder and CEO of BlueKai, the world’s largest consumer data marketplace and data management platform. After Oracle acquired BlueKai in 2014 for several hundred million dollars, Omar joined Oracle Data Cloud, where he learned about the ecosystem of AI applications and decided to launch his next venture around it – to help people become more productive.

** Yesterbox

Zappos, the online shoe and clothing giant, is a firm where many things are handled differently. There are no hierarchies, few office rules, and unique productivity hacks. One of them is Yesterbox, a inbox zero system based on the idea of taking yesterday’s inbox as today’s to-do list. We’re excited to welcome the co-creator of this system, Maggie Hsu, former chief of staff to CEO Tony Hsieh and now advisor at Zappos, at InAwe17. Maggie also helped to reshaped Downtown Las Vegas as VP of Tony Hsieh’s Downton Project, which has transformed the abandoned old center of Sin City into a vibrant young community.

“I’m excited to speak at Inbox Awesome!” Maggie said. “As a first timer, I’m not only looking forward to share our insights on getting things done as a large e-commerce enterprise, but also to connect with other inbox samurais and learn about their latest hacks!”

** A post-election special

With Inbox Awesome happening on November 9th, exactly one year after the U.S. elections, it is time to bring politics on stage. We’re excited that Vanessa Liu, Chief Operating Officer at Trigger Media Group, a $22MM digital media incubator, will be facilitating this topic.

In her role, she has co-founded, incubated and oversees business operations and strategic initiatives of Trigger’s portfolio companies and serves on the board or as an advisor or investor at multiple startups in the media ecosphere. She mentors female founders through the Dreamers // Doers network, Monarq Incubator, and Parity Partners’ Parity Program. Previously, Harvard graduate Vanessa was an Associate Partner at McKinsey, based in Amsterdam, London and New York.

** Catch the Phish

As email leaks, text hacks and phishing scandals are in the news almost every day now, we’re happy to welcome one of the leading experts in the field on stage: Dennis Dayman, Chief Privacy and Security Officer at New York based email service provider Return Path. Dennis has more than 20 years of experience combating spam, security and privacy issues, data governance issues, and improving email delivery through industry policy. Previously, he served as Eloqua’s chief privacy and security officer.

“As an expert in email and spam, at InAwe there is a lot of diversity, both in people and topics”, Dennis said. “I look forward to a strong, controversial discussion around spam, fishing and privacy – topics I have dedicated the last two decades of my life to and that are more relevant than ever before.”
