What is Workplace by Facebook? Director Julien Codorniou to tell all at Disrupt, Dec 5-6

TechCrunch Disrupt in London is on December 5-6! And counting! Grab tickets here. Many speakers have already been announced, but they just keep coming! Next up is Julien Codorniou Director of ‘Workplace by Facebook’ (what we used to notionally call ‘Facebook at Work’).

Julien serves as Director and global head of Workplace by Facebook, managing all things sales, customer success and partnerships for this initiative, built out of London. He joined Facebook in 2011 to manage the gaming team in EMEA and was recently leading the global Platform Partnerships team, helping Facebook partners to build, grow and monetize their apps with Platform. Before Facebook he was the director of business development at Microsoft Corp where he launched the BizSpark program.

Since 2012, he’s served on the board of the French media group Le Monde. He’s also the co-author of the book: “The Kelkoo.com success story“, published by Pearson in 2005.

The two-day Disrupt conference runs December 5 to 6 in the Olympic Village’s Copper Box Arena and features Startup Alley and Startup Battlefield where one startup will take home £30,000. You can buy early-bird tickets for Disrupt London here.
