The Austin Business Journal's Face 2 Face series delivers some of the brightest industry leader to Austin's business community for informative and inspiring discussions. Personal stories, stories from the boardroom and opinions on today's ever-changing business environment are tackled in a fireside chat format with ABJ Editor Colin Pope.

The Face 2 Face breakfasts are usually held the second Tuesday of each month at Whole Foods' world-famous headquarters in downtown Austin. The breakfast starts at 8:30 am with a half hour of networking followed by a one-hour Q&A session with our featured guest. This discussion is fueled by questions from the audience, and most often centers on business-to-business topics that both educate and entertain.
