Every year through the Marketing Legends Lecture and Award Banquet, we honor an author or professional who has transformed the marketing landscape through thought leadership, books and/or the launch of successful new companies or platforms. This year, we are pleased and honored to award David Meerman Scott the 2017 Marketing Legends Award. Scott’s early evangelism and books have contributed to the adoption of social media by marketers and companies worldwide.

Themes Scott will cover in his lecture:

David Meerman Scott leads the way and outlines fresh, measurable and low- and no-cost strategies – like newsjacking – to instantly and directly reach an audience. His informative, entertaining and high-energy presentations shine a light on the best examples of success from a wide variety of large and small organizations – from business-to-business outfits to rock bands, nonprofits to entrepreneurial growth businesses. He energizes audiences and shows people how to get found at the exact moment buyers are looking. Social media are the tools, but it is a real-time mindset that drives strategy in a world where speed and agility – not the biggest budget – win. Shift from the controlled and message-driven advertising/PR paradigm and learn to win hearts and minds by creating content that people are eager to consume and share.

Scott’s groundbreaking strategies do not just slap social media onto dusty old strategies – they reinvent the way to engage the marketplace.

As a bonus to those who also attend the banquet, Scott will pose a newsjacking challenge for the audience during his speech. He will complete the marketing exercise at the dinner. Be sure to attend to take part in the add-on benefit with great takeaway value.

About David Meerman Scott

David Meerman Scott

The 2017 Marketing Legends honoree, David Meerman Scott, is an internationally acclaimed sales and marketing/PR strategist whose books and blog are must-reads for professionals and organizations seeking to stand out, get noticed and capture hearts and minds for their products, services and ideas. He is author or co-author of 10 books (including three international bestsellers), with one million books in print.

Scott is a master of the new rules for growing business, spreading ideas and generating attention in our always-on, Web-driven world. Advance planning is out – speed and agility are in. Scale and media buying power are no longer a decisive advantage. Instead, real-time is the mindset – and content matters – you are what you publish. Those who can be fearless and put away old strategies and tactics in favor of a new way will reap the rewards. Scott says.

In addition to his work as a best-selling writer, researcher and international speaker, he is also an adviser to emerging companies who are working to transform their industries by delivering disruptive products and services.

Scott delivered success as a member of the board of directors of NewsWatch KK (successfully sold to Yahoo Japan) and Kadient (successfully merged with Sant). He also served on the board of advisers of Eloqua (successful IPO in mid-2012 and sale to Oracle in early 2013) and GrabCAD (successfully sold to Stratasys in mid-2014).
