BUEI Talks Presents:

Your personal guide to the America’s Cup with Jack Griffin

What brings you to the America’s Cup? You might want to know about the racing, or about the boats and technology. Maybe it’s the tradition that interests you. Or maybe you’re fascinated by the tycoons and the glamour that surround the America’s Cup. Or maybe you’re just curious to know why it’s such a big event. Jack will explain all of this and more! Don’t miss your chance to get a personalized copy of Turning the Tide!

Jack Griffin is Editor of Cup Experience, a unique newsletter and website dedicated to audience engagement for the America’s Cup. Jack’s book Turning the Tide provides the definitive account of how Oracle Team USA mounted their comeback to defend the America’s Cup in San Francisco. Before America’s Cup, Jack worked for 25 years in marketing, sales, and general management for IT and high tech companies in the US and Europe.
