Speaking Engagements

Rob’s affable nature and willingness to poke holes in conventional wisdom have made him a desired speaker on the topics of interactive video, user-oriented content marketing and the power of content to drive demand generation. Rob has given keynotes and joined panel sessions at over 50 conferences across North America and Europe.

His most well known presentation “Viral is a Dirty Word” (co-authored with search pioneer Jeremy Sanchez) debuted at SXSW 2012.

Rob’s latest work, the ebook “The Digital Social Contract” , will be the focus of many of his engagements in 2016.
