Engage New Orleans M.C., Rives
Last month we announced a first and second round of speakers. Today we are pleased to announce our final list of selected speakers.
This year’s Engage in New Orleans is shaping up to be an epic conference for us. We have top executives from the leading marketing and measurement companies as well as the new and established publishing brands. Additionally, we will have our usual mix of workshops and demonstrations for applied learning on Webtrends solutions. But, it’s not just the line up of speakers that is impressive. We’re also doing a unique format.
At Engage 2010, we are doing Ignite-style presentations – or sprints – instead of traditional hour-long keynotes. Presenters have 10 minutes to share their most valuable insights on a wide range of topics important to digital marketers, analysts and customers. Some of the Engage Sprinters include:
- David Alston, VP of Marketing for the social media, marketing and engagement company Radian 6
- Jennifer Zeszut, founder and CEO of the sentiment analysis startup Scout Labs
- Steve Woods, CTO for Eloqua
- Sean Power and Alistair Croll, co-founders of Watching Websites
- Douglas Karr, CEO, DK New Media
- Selina Allibhai, COO, Acronym Media
Speaking of Ignite, we were inspired to use this format from attending and sponsoring Ignite Portland here in our headquarters hometown. We partnered with the locally-based, non-profit that organizes the event, Legion of Tech, to reach out to event planners in New Orleans to kick off the Engage conference with an Ignite. And so IgniteNOLA was born! We are so pumped about starting this Engage with a night of entertainment put on by the local tech scene. It’s also an honor to be the patron for this inaugural event that will live on in New Orleans long after our conference concludes.
Planners are now accepting talks for IgniteNOLA.
Big thanks to Legion of Tech and congrats to the IgniteNOLA organizers! We look forward to the show!
