I’m speaking at the AMA

If you’re in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area next week, I’ll be speaking at the Ft. Worth chapter of the American Marketing Association. You can find details on the event at the AMA web site, and the event description is below.

I hope to see you there!

Ten years ago, four authors started a new conversation about marketing. The result was the book The Cluetrain Manifesto and with it, Chris Locke, Rick Levine, Doc Searls, and David Weinberger nailed 95 Theses on the door of the Internet and challenged us all to wake up to a transformation underway in how companies and people engage in markets. One of the companies who embraced the ideas put forth in Cluetrain was The LEGO Company. Jake McKee, The LEGO Company’s first community manager spent five years on the frontlines of the company/customer interactions. In this session, Jake will recap his efforts to help LEGO embrace the principles of the Cluetrain, and will share tips for how you can apply those principles in your own business.
