John Bates






John began his ongoing love affair with the Internet in 1987 in the Humanities Computing Facility at The University of California at Los Angeles after, as luck would have it, dropping out of school for a few years to play with his rock band, of which you’ve never heard. Thankfully he ended up managing computer labs, dragging cables through the ceilings and installing computer networks as an undergrad and then for several years thereafter upon his return from a year long surfing tour of South East Asia. In 1994 John became the Director of Online Services and public persona for the first entertainment site in the dot com domain; Virtual Vegas. No real gambling, but it still became the hottest destination on the Internet and later sold to Vivendi for undisclosed millions. In 1998 John co-founded BIGWORDS.com raising over $80M but subsequently failing in the dot-bomb explosion. He then became the first employee at Goldstar.com and was responsible for opening all of the major markets in the US. Since 2006 John has focused his consulting in the arena of online computer games and virtual goods. John has consulted for MindArk, creators of EntropiaUniverse.com since 2006. John also consults for WEMO Media, creators of theBlu.com, bringing the Oceans to life on the web.

John has spoken at hundreds of conferences, business schools and other venues all over the world, including speaking at TEDActive during the 2011 TED Conference. He works with executives on public speaking and media training via his coaching company Executive Speaking Success.

John is very proud of the fact that he brushes his dog Flash’s teeth every night with an Oral B plaque remover and John’s fond memories of the Southern Sky at night from deep in Western Australia make him burst out in tears sometimes. If he were a verb he would be ‘fascinated.’
