Industry-leading speakers and thought-leaders
Keynote Title: Turning Fans into Customers and Customers into Fans
Description: Based on the ideas in Mr. Scott’s new book "Fanocracy: Turning Fans into Customers and Customers into Fans" released on January 7, 2020.
His book is about Fandom culture, building experiences, and how any business can grow by cultivating fans.
Bio: David Meerman Scott is a marketing strategist, entrepreneur, advisor to emerging companies, VC strategic partner, and bestselling author.
David Meerman Scott spotted the real-time marketing revolution in its infancy and wrote five books about it including The New Rules of Marketing and PR, with more than 400,000 copies sold in English and available in 29 languages from Albanian to Vietnamese.
Now David says the pendulum has swung too far in the direction of superficial online communications. Tech-weary and bot-wary people are hungry for true human connection. Organizations have learned to win by developing what David calls a “Fanocracy” -- tapping into the mindset that relationships with customers are more important than the products they sell to them.
Note: The first 400 paid registrants/attendees will receive a free copy of Fanocracy at check-in.

About Jeffrey Shaw:
Jeffrey Shaw is a TEDx speaker, host of Creative Warriors podcast with well over 500 episodes and over a million downloads, and bestselling author of LINGO: Discover Your Ideal Customer’s Secret Language and Make Your Business Irresistible.
As a keynote speaker and brand message consultant, Jeffrey Shaw, a renown former portrait photographer, helps companies stop wasting time trying to satisfy some customers who will never be satisfied and attract only their ideal customers. Like a photographer captures the essence of a person, Jeffrey shows businesses how to make customers feel seen, heard and understood. When that happens, you attract and retain your ideal customers by learning how to speak their "Lingo"
Session Description: You know how we often waste time trying to satisfy some customers that will never be satisfied? Or we chase down potential customers to no avail? And if we do manage to convince them to buy or hire us, they are often the least profitable and not worth the time?
Then there are those customers that onboard easily, are a breeze to work with, fly through our systems and are often the most profitable. You want more of those customers, right?
It turns out, it’s not our job to prove our value to anyone. It’s our job to find the customers that already value what we do. We do that with brand messaging and content that speaks the Lingo of your ideal customers. When that happens, your ideal customers feel like you “get” them, and they fall in love with your company!
In this exhilarating session, brand consultant, author and former photographer Jeffrey Shaw will teach you a five-step strategy to “see” your customers like a photographer sees their subject — beyond the surface, beyond the persona, to create a real connection that will lead to building a devoted following, brand loyalty, lead generation and increased sales.
