Marketing pioneer, Internet expert and public relations guru Seth Godin has been nominated as one of the top twenty-one speakers for the 21st century by Successful Meetings Magazine. He energizes his audiences by encouraging them to reject conformity and seek new and innovative solutions to the new challenges of the technological age.
Godin practices what he preaches. His last two books, Poke the Box and We Are All Weird use groundbreaking new marketing strategies and employ digital platforms to drive demand. His earlier book Commission Marketing was a New York Times bestseller and was named as a Best Business Book by Fortune Magazine. Godin has written more than a dozen worldwide bestsellers that are available in over thirty languages; his second book, Unleashing the Ideavirus, is the most popular e-book ever published.
Taking the experience gained from founding his own company, Yoyodyne (later sold to Yahoo), and as Vice President of Direct Marketing for Yahoo, Godin focuses on the creative thinking a business needs to offer a standout product or service. He knows how ideas spread and how giving customers respect reaps dividends, and shows his audience how to approach this essential form of marketing.
