For more than five years the Austin Business Journal's Face 2 Face series has delivered some of the brightest industry leader to Austin's business community for informative and inspiring discussions. Personal stories, tales 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.

Dubbed by Forbes as the Oil Patch Prince and lauded by the ABJ as the 2016 CEO of the Year, Bryan Sheffield is Austin's newest billionaire thanks to the success of his company, Parsley Energy. Sheffield was born into a family steeped in oil and gas, and he has parlayed his experience and connections to create a rare company — an energy business based in Austin, and one that has bucked much of the bad times that have plagued the oil and gas industry.
