The Art of Transmedia

A struggle for many marketing teams is that when they have an idea, it lands on one platform. Another idea is on a different platform, and a third is on yet another. All three campaigns talk about your brand but none of them connect to one another. What if there was a different way to tell a story? During this session, attendees will learn how to create a modern marketing campaign that connects your email to your billboard, your social to your radio, your print to your display – every aspect of your marketing speaking in a singular voice about your brand.

Marketing in a mobile world: How do I find my customers if they are always moving?

The team from MLive will give you the tools you need to not only adapt to mobile in 2017 but to thrive as you head into 2018.

Personal Branding keynote

Talking about how you use facebook in the way your customer uses facebook. This isn't a selling play this is a connection play that is told through the medium of video in 2016. We live in an era of disruption that are causing pain points for brands and employees and I work to help assuage that pain and build up the muscle memory to operate in the social space.
