Robbie Bach - Author Event - The Wilkes Insurrection: A Contemporary Thriller


ROBBIE BACH is best known for founding and leading the team that created the Xbox as Microsoft’s former Chief Xbox Officer and president of the Entertainment and Devices Division. Today he is an entertaining storyteller and catalyzing voice who writes books and speaks to audiences on leadership, creativity, strategy, and civic issues.

Robbie works as a civic engineer with corporate, philanthropic, and civic organizations to help drive positive change in our communities. He guest-lectures extensively at a variety of colleges and universities and speaks to corporate, civic, nonprofit, and trade association audiences across the country. In 2015, he published his first book, Xbox Revisited: A Game Plan for Corporate and Civic Renewal.

He and his wife, Pauline, reside in Medina, Washington with their yellow lab, Roscoe. They have three grown children and one grandchild. He loves peanut M&Ms, upholding heroic ideals, and those motivated to save the world—although not necessarily in that order. The Wilkes Insurrection is his debut novel.  For more information, go to
