As an entrepreneur and marketing executive with 8+ years of experience growing startups, building companies and leading teams, I’ve spoken about communications, growth and marketing strategy at events like Techweek, Forrester Research’s Marketing Leadership Forum, Content Marketing World, LinkedIn’s Marketing Solutions Forum, and Percolate’s Transition Conference, as well as been a featured speaker at startup accelerators like General Assembly and NY Media Lab. Online, I’ve taught and lectured 13,000+ students on marketing, growth and brand management.
With every talk I give, I make it a point to contribute:
Real expertise. I’ve built teams, designed processes, integrated marketing technology, and taken startups with minimal inbound demand and grown them to 100,000’s of leads and millions of dollars in revenue. Whether it’s about teams, tactics, or big picture trends, I bring unique perspective and real-world problem-solving experience.
Energy and conviction. As my good friend and teammate Tony Granados once said to me, “if you’re not leaning in to connect with your audience, you shouldn’t be on stage,” and he’s right. Seen a lot of marketing or startup conferences where everyone is bored, tuned out, and checking email on their phone? So have I, it sucks, and it’s not my style.
Actionable advice. The best way to create the brands we want to see in the world is to empower others with the experience to build them. Every time I speak I try to leave everyone in the audience with perspective and tips they can use to work smarter and better.
