Who is Larry Chiang Here at MBFW

by Larry Chiang on August 29, 2011

Larry Chiang scandalously reveals how stuff really works and breaks it down. He edits the Bloomberg BusinessWeek channel “What They Don’t Teach You at Business School”. After Chiang’s Harvard Law keynote, Harvard Business wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“ (its the same title as his NY Times bestseller). He is Entrepreneur in Residence at Stanford University. If you read his hilariously awesome “What a Supermodel Can Teach a Stanford MBA” and “How to Get Man-Charm”, you will like his latest post:

Who is Larry Chiang Here at MBFW

By Larry Chiang

Larry Chiang cohosts the Amex Tory Burch Party

MBFW is a little too immersed with Larry Chiang

I get a bunch of emails, tweets and even texts. I put my cell on my YouTube branded home page. Anyway, here is my role and why I’m around.

-1- I am first and foremost a fan

MBFW is a living, breathing community . It changes and gets better every year. I’m a fan

-2- MBFW Triple Threat

I model, host and launched a book here at MBFW

Model #5 (Kristina L.) had personality to spare…

On 09-09-09, I released my book. It not only hit the NY Times bestseller list, it was also on the google home page for 9 minutes.

-3- Over-Stayed my 15 minutes

I get more than my 15 minutes because I studied and hacked celebrity .

I also recognize and promote rising stars.

4- parties and appearances.

Sure I have an assistant — but I want you to feel you can contact me directly .

Olivia from Turner Broadcasting

I don’t charge for appearances (as a Quasi journalist it’d be a conflict. Yes I wrote two of the top ten traffic posts for BusinessWeek: “What a Supermodel Can Teach a Stanford MBA”)

For nine minutes, Google had this doodle linking to my book, ‘What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School’

5- who is my mentor.

Mark McCormack was my mentor.

He founded IMG which founded MBFW. He wrote “What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School”. I have a copy for you in my hotel at the Westin.

DISCLOSURE: I appeared (mostly naked) in their “Who’s he sleeping with campaign”. It launched their heavenly bed.

Of course you can text me your snail mail address and I will mail you a copy or have one at the oh-so-helpful Westin concierge 🙂

Larry’s mentor Mark McCormack wrote this in 1983.
His own book came out 09-09-09. It is called ‘What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School

a party invite for you…

Larry Chiang started his first company UCMS in college. He mimicked his mentor, Mark McCormack, founder of IMG who wrote the book, “What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School”.
Chiang is a keynote speaker and bestselling author and spoke at Congress and World Bank.

Text or call him during office hours 11:11am or 11:11pm PST +/-11 minutes at 650-283-8008. Due to the volume of calls, he may place you on hold like a Scottsdale Arizona customer service rep. If you email him, be sure to include your cell number in the subject line. If you want him to email you his new articles…, ask him in an email :-)
