Derek Sivers

Founder and Former President of CD Baby

Presentations by Derek Sivers are entertaining and illuminating explorations of human behavior as it relates to leadership and movements. He points out the differences and dynamics between leaders and followers and such dynamics determine the growth of movements.

Sivers is perhaps best known for founding the online CD store CD Baby in 1998. At $100 million in sales and featuring over 150,000 musicians, CD Baby was the largest retailer of independent music on the web. Ten years later, in 2008, Sivers sold off CD Baby for $22 million and gave the proceeds to a trust for charitable music education.

Sivers is also the author of 'Anything You Want,' which in 2011, became a best seller throughout all categories. Presentations by Derek Sivers draw on material from this book as well as his career as an entrepreneur. As such, they are brimming with fascinating, actionable information.
