Sunday Morning Keynote Speaker: Kevin Baer
Hype-free digital marketing expert Kevin Baer will spotlight his eye-opening perspectives as the Conference keynote speaker on the morning of Sunday, March 18.
Baer, a best-selling author and consultant, will spotlight dynamic ways to “Turn Your Customers Into Volunteer Marketers.”
As the founder and president of Convince & Convert, a strategy consulting firm, Baer helps leading businesses gain and keep more customers through the smart intersection of technology, social media and customer service. Among the many companies he has advised are Nike, 3M, Walmart and Oracle.
Baer was recently inducted into the Word of Mouth Marketing Hall of Fame and he hosts the top-rated Social Pros podcast.
Opening Keynote Speaker: Kevin Spurlock
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Kevin Spurlock will deliver his unique perspective on the world with us at the Opening General Session on Monday, March 20. Known for his innovative documentaries, Spurlock now hosts a series on CNN called “Inside Man” in which he continues to investigate a wide array of subjects, from gambling to life for senior citizens.
Spurlock will deliver what he modestly calls, “The Greatest Lecture Ever Presented.” Utilizing the cutting-edge tools of comic exploration and total self-exploitation, he dissects the world of advertising and marketing by using his personal integrity as currency to sell out to the highest bidder. Scathingly funny, subversive and deceptively smart, Spurlock shines the definitive light on our branded future.
His critically acclaimed film, “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold,” examines branding, advertising and product placement in America — ironically, in a film funded by branding, advertising and product placement.
You might remember Spurlock best for his role as guinea pig for his movie “Super Size Me,” which became the first documentary to ever break into the weekend box office top 10.
