Network After Work at Books and Books
Meet us at Books and Books for the Networking session and a glass of wine, 6-8pm. At 8pm meet an Australian business author Alex Malley as he presents his book The Naked CEO.
ALEX MALLEY, THE NAKED CEO, Author and TV Personality Speaks as CEO of CPA Australia, LinkedIn Influencer, and Global Mentor
By day, Malley is the busy CEO of CPA Australia, responsible for 19 offices globally with stakeholders in 121 countries. Malley is also a well-known media personality down under, both as host of “The Bottom Line” television interview series on the top rating Nine Network Australia and as a regular morning show news commentator. On “The Bottom Line,” Malley conducts intimate interviews with business leaders and entertainers ranging from celebrity chef Curtis Stone and author Lord Jeffrey Archer to Dow Chemical chief Andrew Liveris.
In 2012, Malley secured Neil Armstrong’s final interview, the most in-depth ever filmed with the all-time American hero.
His persona as “The Naked CEO” began as an extension of his personal commitment to mentoring young people. An award-winning, 20-year university professor, Malley combines his candid, real-life stories with practical career mentoring to help people navigate their career and life. Whether in his LinkedIn Influencer series, his blog on Huffington Post or in one of more than 1,100 personal video replies on thenakedceo.com to career questions, Malley shoots straight about business, corporate politics, and life. His website, from an initial launch in Australia has quickly grown to more than 2.2 million visitors.
Malley’s new book, “The Naked CEO – The Truth You Need to Build a Big Life,” is being released this month in the U.S. The book is an engaging “how to” guide for students seeking their first jobs, professionals navigating their first workplaces or looking for a change of direction, and managers who hire them.
Malley will be promoting the book in early 2015 with a college speaking tour and other appearances, particularly in Los Angeles, New York City and Miami.
