Speaker/Panelist 2015


Bryan is the director of the Apigee Institute, a research and strategy organization that brings empirical data, the best ideas from academic researchers, and the collective wisdom of digital change agents together to help global enterprises master digital transformation. The Apigee Institute marries theory to benchmarks in order to uncover best practices for success doing digital business.

Bryan has over 20 years of experience using data to drive change in complex organizations. During ten years at Microsoft Corporation, he served as the first Director of Open Source Strategy in the company’s history. As a Vice-President for Corporate Strategies at global consultancy Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research he applied techniques from political campaigns—including elections for more than two dozen heads of state—to the strategic challenges of some of the world’s top brands.

His passion for dissecting the nexus of vision, metrics, and customer experience began with municipal police reform in the United States, where he walked the beat with police officers in departments seeking to implement community-based policing. He has a degree in Philosophy from Yale University.
