Gary Vaynerchuk planning to swing back by Portland on the Crush It! book tour

[HTML1]Usually, I’m pretty last minute about letting you know when relevant authors are in town. I was pretty tardy with the news on dooce speaking in Portland. And I didn’t do much better with a heads up on Sarah Lacy’s user generated book tour stop.

But this time, I feel like I’m actually going to give you fair warning: Gary Vaynerchuk—affectionately known as @garyvee—will be stopping by Powell’s Downtown as part of the junket for his new book, Crush It! But not until October 19—so you’ve got plenty of time to prep. Read More

Gary Vaynerchuk named inaugural speaker for Legion of Talk

Gary VaynerchukMan oh man. Those crazy kids at Legion of Tech are at it again.

If you happened to make it to Ignite Portland 3, you heard the first hints of Legion of Talk, a new series of more intimate Legion of Tech events designed to replicate the thought-provoking presentations of TED.

Well, you know those Legion of Tech types can’t do anything small. So it’s no surprise that they’re starting off with the big guns. Or perhaps more appropriately, by “Bringing the Thunder.”

Legion of Talk will kick off with Gary Vanynerchuk of Wine Library TV. Gary is a phenomenal online success story, by any measure.

Yes, shrewd business guy. Yes, creative thinker. Yes, driven entrepreneur. Yes, talented with the video. But you know what really got him there? Being a nice guy. And a decent human being.

Got him where exactly?

With a wealth of knowledge and an entrepreneurial spirit, Gary rebranded the family business as Wine Library. Within a five year time period, Wine Library grew from a $4 million dollar business to a $45 million business.

Gary will be in town as part of his book tour, and a few lucky folks will get the chance to hear him speak at Legion of Talk. The event will be held at Wieden + Kennedy on July 1 at 7 PM. Tickets will be available June 24.

Like all Legion of Tech events, there is no charge for the event. But there will be a limited number of participants.

Interested? Of course you are. Get more information at Legion of Tech or Wine Library TV. Please RSVP on Upcoming.
