The Marketing Factories are Broken - The Future of 1000 People Problems and the Database of One
Only a handful of huge companies still exist. In the midst of this, smaller and midsized companies are using marketing and sales techniques that were tooled to match the size and scale of the Industrial Revolution. Everything in the business world has changed, except for the tools of marketing and selling. And all the while, people haven’t changed one bit. Learn from Chris Brogan how to go about marketing and selling as if you’re talking to just one person at a time, and how you can do this profitably.

We're in an amazing time. There's more sales and marketing data available to us than ever before. However, an abundance of data causes all new issues along with some great opportunities.

Ownership for Organizations: How An Owner’s Mindset Improves Employee Contribution and Commitment
Over the past five years, business has changed dramatically. Between resizing efforts, flattening of hierarchies, and a whole wave of technological shifts that encourage new methods of interaction and business-making, corporations now face new challenges. How do you retain your better employees? How do you prevent brain drain? How do you utilize the best of the new technologies without causing productivity damage? How can we encourage employees to feel a sense of ownership of their duties and roles?

Content Marketing Strategy: How to Use the Web’s Tools to Drive Business
You’ve been told to blog. You’ve been told to podcast. Someone told you to make more video. What they didn’t provide was a simple, concrete method to build up sales and marketing volume through the creation of integrated and easy-to-produce content creation and distribution strategies for your organization. Meet with a 17-year veteran of the online content space and learn a framework for creating, distributing and maximizing potential value from your content marketing and social media usage.

Mission-Driven Execution: How to Empower Individuals and Organizations to Thrive
The challenges of productivity, time management, prioritizing, sales success, and overall business execution are all tied to one core challenge: people aren’t operating from a powerful guiding mission. Far beyond a forgotten piece of paper in a company binder, the mission we’re talking about drives every element of execution as well as the resources required to build production capacity. Learn the core Ownership principles and how to actually map your mission, your actions, and your message into an aligned and powerful system for success. (Good for personal leadership, management, sales, and marketing events.)
The Value of the Networked Organization
Research and technology has caught up to what we’ve always believed: that individual contributions are one thing, but a networked employee brings more resources to bear on solutions for the organization, reports a higher level of potential happiness, and delivers many more tangible benefits than a similarly skilled but non-networked individual. How do we prepare for the always-on, fast-touch, let-me-take-a-selfie world and maximize benefits, value, and contributions in this space? (Ideal for HR organizations, leadership events, and management too.)
Winning in the Choose Your Own Adventure Economy
We used to try to sell to everyone, but times have changed. Finding the specific people we can best serve now outweighs the intent to reach the masses, but that means we must build even deeper connections, and do more with them. How have technological shifts empowered more selective marketing, selective selling, and frictionless buying? What can you do to take advantage of these trends? What will your business do to breathe life and purpose into all these new digital technologies so that you’re building business and not just bleating into the void? (Ideal for sales and marketing events, as well as leadership events.)
Your Topic Wasn’t Covered?
I speak to leaders and organizations daily, ranging from 6th grade classrooms (my aunt asked me) to corporate sales and marketing events, to 10,000 person mega summits. When I’m not onstage, I’m learning from some of the most amazing minds, everyone from US Navy SEAL Commanders Mark Divine and Rorke Denver to US Olympic gold medalist Joe Jacobi to the first female F14 Tomcat fighter pilot Carey Lohrenz and many more. If your topic isn’t explicitly here, or if you’re uncertain, just contact us and I’ll be sure to work it through with you.
"Chris is a rockstar of sorts in social media circles and I felt that he would be a natural to speakChris at the Summit. I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know what kind of a speaker he was I just knew his content was great. To answer the question…he is a GREAT speaker. He was entertaining and kept the audience engaged and entertained through the entire keynote. What I like about Chris is that he keeps things in perspective regarding social media. Social media is about being social. It is about listening and being a ′promiscuous connector.′ Chris couldn’t have been nicer to deal with or more accommodating with his time."
