Hailed as “the Steve Jobs of classical music” (Observer) and “the Sheryl Sandberg of the symphony” (LA Review of Books), Aubrey Bergauer is known for her results-driven, data-obsessed pursuit of centering the customer experience—whether in the performing arts or at your corporation.


A “dynamic administrator” with an “unquenchable drive for canny innovation” (San Francisco Chronicle), she’s held offstage roles managing millions of dollars in revenue at major institutions, including the Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera, Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, and San Francisco Conservatory of Music. As chief executive of the California Symphony, Bergauer propelled the organization to double the size of its audience and nearly quadruple the donor base.


As a speaker, Bergauer’s ability to cast and communicate vision moves large teams forward and brings stakeholders together, with appearances spanning TEDx, Adobe’s Magento, universities, and industry conferences in the U.S. and abroad. Bergauer helps organizations and individuals transform from scarcity to opportunity, make money, and grow their base of loyal fans and customers.


Aubrey’s first book, Run It Like A Business, arrives in February 2024, drawing the parallels between strategies that work in the for-profit sector and the non-profit arts space.


A graduate of Rice University, her work and leadership have been covered in the Wall Street Journal, Inc, Entrepreneur, Thrive Global, and Southwest Airlines magazines. Your event attendees will leave inspired, energized, and with a new lens that maybe the arts and business have more in common than you ever thought before.
