November 22, 2016  By PrintAction Staff

Billy Beane, Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations for the Oakland A’s and the subject of the movie Moneyball, is to headline the upcoming Dscoop Arizona conference taking place from March 1 to 4, 2017, in Phoenix.

Dscoop is an independent community of HP Graphics Solutions business owners and technical professionals who use HP Indigo, Scitex, High-End Latex and PWP equipment.

In addition to Beane, the conference’s featured speakers also include Doug Lipp, former Head of Employee Training at Disney; John Foley, former Blue Angel Pilot; and emcee and master mentalist, Lior Suchard.


“The speakers this year are a diverse collection of forward thinkers, risk-takers and pioneers in their industry. From the creator of the Moneyball philosophy to a former lead solo Blue Angel pilot, they will challenge the way you think and inspire you to ignite change in your business approach,” said Kathy Wise, Dscoop Phoenix, ImagineConference Chair.

Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Billy Beane implemented a statistical methodology, known as the Moneyball philosophy, that led the Oakland A’s to six American League West Division Titles. Dscoop explains his philosophy has been adopted by organizations of all sizes, across all industries and has helped shape the way modern businesses view and leverage big data and employ analytics for long-term success.

Doug Lipp is an eight-time business author and world authority on building esteemed organizational cultures and stronger brand culture. He was at the helm of the employee training team at Disney and helped Disney start its first international theme park as a member of the Tokyo Disneyland opening team. He will share how Disney consistently develops the world’s most engaged, loyal and customer-centric employees that deliver on the brand promise.

John Foley is the former lead solo pilot of the Blue Angels, a Sloan Fellow at Stanford School of Business, a gratitude guru and an expert in the how of High Performance teams. His post-Naval experiences as an entrepreneur and a Sloan Fellow at the Stanford Graduate School of Business put him in a position to reverse-engineer the culture of excellence and teamwork found in the Blue Angels. He will use examples from his experiences to motivate attendees to reach for their highest potential and sustain excellence under dynamic change.
