Meet Elizabeth Leland
My name is Elizabeth Leland, but most people refer to me by my nickname "Biz". I oversee Business Development and Partner Alliances for Hackd. You've probably seen me at a Hackd event, and if not I hope I get the opportunity to meet you soon!
I absolutely LOVE to travel, being immersed in new cultures, and meeting new people! If you ask me what I am doing on a free weekend, it's usually booking a spontaneous flight somewhere and checking places off my bucket list. When I'm not traveling, I am usually spending time outside with my fiance, Craig, and our two pups- Tate the Dalmatian, and Lyka the Black Lab.
My background is primarily in the hospitality industry. It comes naturally to me to provide top notch customer service while building genuine relationships!
WHAT MAKES BIZ UNIQUE
I love to smile and make others smile as well. I am a firm believer that positive energy is contagious!
WHAT INSPIRES BIZ
Honestly, my colleagues in this ever-changing tech world we live in. Each member of our team adds a different and unique value. I am inspired by the wealth of knowledge I receive by having a 5 minute conversation with a Developer or Solution Architect, and the creative ideas that come from our Marketing team! It's so refreshing being a part of such a diverse and cohesive team.
THE BEST TRIP I EVER TOOK
Hands down my trip to Iceland this past February. Not only was it totally epic, but I also got engaged during the trip and how do you really top that? Honorable mention would be my trip to Peru for my 30th birthday. Machu Picchu is even more amazing in person, it's no wonder it is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World!
1. Travel to all of the Seven Wonders of the World
2. See the Northern Lights (which were sadly not visible on my trip to Iceland)
3. Run a full marathon
My favorite part about Business Development is building relationships while growing the business. It's so exciting to have the opportunity to meet and work with so many different people each day and knowing your making a difference in their world of technology by offering tailored solutions! It's also pretty neat that its often referred to as Biz Dev, which seems to fit perfectly with my name.
WHICH SALESFORCE CHARACTER BIZ RELATES TO
Between hosting events and being the initial point of contact for Discovery Sessions with customers - Astro and I are two peas in a pod. Not to mention Astro also likes to travel, make new friends and always up for adventure... need I say more?
