Welcome to my Tech Leaders Interview Series, where I interview impactful leaders and ask them to share tips and techniques that have benefited them, both in their personal and professional lives. 

This interview is with Boaz Katz, Co-Founder & Chief Data Officer at Bizzabo

Q & A: 

Q: What are your main productivity tips? 

Reduce the number of context switches. On one side of my day, I respond very quickly to messages and emails, but on the other side, I turn off all notifications and focus on one task until it is accomplished. It allows me to produce focused work time while not blocking others.

Q: What is your favorite drink? 

Water and Wine. I drink about 3 liters of water during the day and a glass of Israeli wine every evening.

Q: How do you deal with stress and anxiety? 

I appreciate the stress; it drives me to be more productive, sharper, and more decisive. The beach or my psychologic is my relaxing place.

Q: Your tips for aspiring entrepreneurs? 

Think big and realize that a venture is usually a marathon that you are running in sprints. Mental health drives success. So, take care of it.

Q: Who in the Tech industry would you like to meet for lunch? 

Co-founder of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey. His vision, leadership, and social impact are admirable.

Q: If you could live anywhere, where would it be? 

Having a beach located nearby, having waves to surf, warm weather most of the year, and having great food within walking distance is a great combination.

It sounds like Israel to me.

Q: What is your favorite book recommendation? 

The hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy, the full series. When I was a kid, this was the first book I read from start to finish in English. As a result, my imagination was sparked to not limit itself. As well, I find it hilarious.
