One of my resolutions for the New Year (the Jewish one and the common calendar) was to be less of a self-promoting whore...but this I can't resist:
After seeing them on stage, I've been a disciple of Google's Avinash Kaushik and experiential marketing expert Max Lenderman (and I saw him years ago at a Bell Mobility conference we were both speaking at).
And Mitch Joel? What can I say about this guy--a former colleage, a profound friend, and someone who's accomplishments leave me in awe (and may I admit, somewhat envious...but don't worry, I'll get over it).
So, the fact that I'm speaking on the same bill as them next week, on September 30th, is kinda cool...and deserves this blog post.
The event is The Art of Marketing, put together by Scott Kavanaugh and his hard-working team at The Art Of Productions. Over and above the top-flight talent (well, the other five guys), the day is first-rate and delivered with class...which is why I don't mind recommending it without reserve.
And in an effort to put the previous post to the test, and validate the "go-to" power of MY network, Scott has allowed me to lay down a discount of $50. Wanna use it and be the one person I can count on? Click here, or go to The Art of Marketing's registration page and when it asks you for a promo code, use the very unsubtle, very whorish self-promoting code NULMAN.
So, the question remains, what will I do to hold my own amongst those giants of the marketing world?
Well if you can't beat 'em with brilliance, wow 'em with wardrobe.
I'm working on my outfit as you read this...and will build on that foundation shortly after.
Hope to see you there.
