Even though the RSS Calendar widget in my sidebar always displays my upcoming speaking engagements, I like to let my readers know where I'll be presenting. As always, I hope that some of you can find the time (and money) to attend an event or two. With that said, my Fall and Winter speaking schedule is already pretty busy with conference appearances in New York, Florida and India, and a couple of webcast presentations on the interwebz.
Here are the details for five upcoming gigs.
iMedia Financial Marketing Summit
October 21st, 2008
New York, NY
Fellow crayonista Adam Broitman and I will be spinning heads and cracking skulls (bald and otherwise) when we take on Geary Interactive in an 'agency shoot out' mock pitch competition at iMedia's day-long financial marketing conference.
Digital Transformation: Niche to Mainstream
November 14th, 2008
I'll deliver the opening keynote at this CMO summit designed to help global marketers understand how to make digital and emerging channels a core part of their communications mix. This will be my first trip to India and I'm looking forward to speaking with 100 or so senior marketers about how the world is changing and what digital marketing trends they need to understand and tap into. No website for this one yet, but you can download the agenda: Download 9dot9_DigitalTransformation.pdf
Beyond Analog: Today's Digital Marketing World
December 3rd, 008
December 10th, 2008
AMA Members Only Webinars
Two identical live online events featuring Diva Marketing's Toby Bloomberg, Digitas' Julie Fleischer and me, talking about the future of digital advertising and the importance of a wide variety of new channels. These webinars are being held in conjunction with the American Marketing Association's upcoming MPlanet conference and I'll be speaking specifically about gaming and virtual worlds. The events aren't promoted on the AMA site yet, but if you join the association before October 31st you'll get comped the webinar registration fee as an added bonus.
MPlanet: Navigating the New Marketsphere
January 26th, 2008
My 2009 speaking calendar kicks-off with the American Marketing Association's MPlanet conference, where I'll be running four workshops on "Gaming, Virtual Worlds, and Life After Second Life" during the pre-conference Digital Marketing Lab. The lab looks to be a bootcamp for senior marketing execs, designed to prep them for the heady stuff that will follow during the main conference program. The AMA wins an award for Most Bad-Ass Speaker Bio Page.
That's all for now but stay tuned -- or keep your eye on my RSS Calendar -- for updates.
