PIE Keynote Says, “Don’t Be A Jerk”


PIE Keynote Says, “Don’t Be A Jerk”

Zach Hall will open the Parking Industry Exhibition 2018 by telling his audience about the “Art of Talking to Strangers.” Hall just published his first book, “Don’t Sleep on Planes” and he is traveling the world entertaining and igniting conferences educating attendees on Why you don’t Sleep on Planes.

The audience can look forward to learning more about “The art of talking to strangers,” why “you can never know too many people,” “How to grow your networks together,” “Don’t be a jerk,” “The value of following up,” and how to embrace your M.A.S.K. (Mindset, Attitude, Senses, Knowledge).” At the end of the presentation, guests will walk away entertained, inspired, and ready to make new connections.

Zachary Hall is an author, sports business professional and community spark plug.  A Phoenix, Arizona native, he has spent the last 10+ years working in the Phoenix area professional sports scene, having worked for the NBA Phoenix Suns, NHL Arizona Coyotes, and now in his 9th season with the MLB Arizona Diamondbacks

He says he loves helping people connect and finding synergy in their work and personal interests. Growing up in Phoenix, he has enjoyed his journey throughout family entertainment and community activism.

Within his role with Diamondbacks he enjoys event planning, creating new in game content, and helping coordinate top line fan experience at the ballpark. Outside of the ballpark, he spends his time volunteering and on boards that are youth based.

Ironically, Parking Today met Zach when he sat next to Advertising Director Marcy Sparrow’s husband, Jeff, on a flight into Phoenix. A conversation ensued, cards were exchanged, stories told upon arriving at home, and to use a hackneyed phrase, “the rest is history.”
