Mark Schaefer -  “The Future of Marketing is YOU”

Where do you want to go next in your life? Do you want to start or build a business? Begin a speaking career or publish a book? Do you want to stand out in your industry to position yourself to attract more customers or a better job? Well, to accomplish those things today, you have to be known. Acclaimed author and speaker Mark Schaefer brings us the secrets to standing out in the world, based on his books MARKETING REBELLION (new) and KNOWN.

His book, KNOWN, was titled to define that known is not the same as famous. It’s not about having millions of fans and red carpet appearances. Being known is about approaching your web presence with an intent that creates the proper authority, reputation, and audience to realize your potential and achieve your goals … whatever they might be. Each attendee will receive a copy of Schaefer's book, KNOWN, and he has set aside time to sign books at the conclusion of his keynote from 10:30-10:45 am.

In this fast-paced and entertaining speech, Schaefer explains why the future of branding is no longer an accumulation of advertising impressions but may depend on an accumulation of human impressions.

How do you scale this human need for connection? Schaefer explains in this memorable and inspiring talk.
