Greg Verdino is a highly regarded authority on “the digital now”. He is known for his uncanny ability to get ahead of trends, spot the difference between fads and the future, and apply his understanding of the rapidly changing global landscape to solve pressing business challenges.

Greg’s perspectives have been shaped by more than 25 years spent working at the forefront of change, during which time he has advised hundreds of organizations including more than 50 of the Fortune 500; has served in senior leadership positions at a half-dozen technology start-ups; and has launched innovative products, lines of business, and divisions from within traditional companies. Through his work speaking, writing and consulting on digital strategy, transformation and innovation, he helps business leaders build thriving 21st-century companies.

Greg is also managing partner and chief strategist at VERDINO & CO, the consultancy he started with his wife to help companies create the content-driven digital experiences their customers demand.

Before VERDINO & CO, he was Executive Vice President at social business firm Dachis Group, where he worked with clients including BIC, Citibank, Fidelity, GE, Michaels Stores, Nestle, and others to formulate and execute best-in-class digital strategies. He joined Dachis Group (now Sprinklr) through its acquisition of crayon, the social media consultancy at which he served as Chief Strategy Officer and in which he was the second largest shareholder. Previously he was a digital strategist and head of emerging channels for Digitas and served in media, marketing, sales and general management roles at ROO Group (now Piksel), Akamai Technologies, Arbitron, Wunderman, and Saatchi & Saatchi.

Greg is the author of microMARKETING: Get Big Results by Thinking and Acting Small (McGraw-Hill, 2010), and a contributing author to Reinventing Interactive and Direct Marketing (ed. Stan Rapp, McGraw-Hill, 2009). Throughout his career, he has served as a go-to expert for a wide range of media outlets including Advertising Age, Bloomberg Business, CNN, Cablevision News12, Fox Business, Investor’s Business Daily, the New York Times, Newsday, and the Wall Street Journal. He has given speeches, led panel discussions and facilitated workshops at more than 100 corporate and association events throughout North America, in Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

He lives on Long Island with his wife, teen daughter, toddler son, and the world’s most disobedient cat.

Digital Revolutionaries
How the World’s Boldest Businesses Tap Into Exponential Change to Transform Themselves, Their Industries and the World

From the Internet of Things to the automation of everything. From artificial intelligence to augmented reality. From virtual experiences to 3D printed products. From big data in the cloud to the collaborative power of people in the crowd. Driven by wave after wave of exponential advances in technology, humans are racing toward a “hyper networked now” that reimagines every aspect of how we live and work. Businesses that can’t transform at the same speed of change will face an uncertain future at best and certain failure at worst. Those that can will see exciting opportunities for exponential growth.

Welcome to the world of digital revolutionaries – the companies (and the leaders inside those companies) that are transforming themselves and entire industries. Over the course of more than two decades, digital futurist and business strategist Greg Verdino has not only studied change; he has helped some of the world’s most highly regarded organizations navigate it successfully. In this thought-provoking exploration of the technologies and trends that are rebooting business right now, you will see how the world’s boldest businesses – both digital disruptors and innovative incumbents – are already putting tomorrow’s biggest business ideas to work today. Plus you’ll learn how you can do the same in order to beat your competition to the future and meet the customer of the future.

In this keynote you will:

  • Understand the top trends shaping the future of business, society and the world
  • See powerful examples of the ways in which exponential changes in technology are changing what it means to be human, and consider why #humantransformation sits at the heart of customer and employee experience
  • Learn how and why digital has become a board-level business imperative
  • See how companies in a wide range of industries are turning to digital to transform the way they work, how they create and capture new value and the relationships they have with their customers
  • Gain insight into how you can apply these lessons to transform your own business to thrive for the future

Greg has delivered versions of this talk (always refreshed with up-to-the-minute examples and customized for each event) to enthusiastic audiences around the world. Digital Revolutionaries is ideal for corporate leadership summits, technology provider customer conferences, sales and marketing kick-offs, and industry association events.

microMARKETING
Get Big Results by Thinking and Acting Small
THIS IS A LEGACY TOPIC AND AVAILABLE BY SPECIAL REQUEST ONLY.

In our age of information saturation, consumer attention is the scarcest commodity of all — which makes your job tougher than ever. How do you thread your messages through billions of bite-sized pieces of content to reach the right people? One thing’s for sure, you’re not going to succeed using traditional approaches. Mass marketing is dead; the next big thing is indeed very small. microMARKETING empowers you to rethink, retool, and revitalize your marketing strategies to take full advantage of the opportunities created by the microcontent explosion. In this talk, Greg will give attendees the tools they’ll need to create a strategy that emphasizes relationships over reach, interactions over interruption, and social networking over broadcast networks. And the best part? While mass marketing was limited to big brands with even bigger budgets, Greg’s micromarketing approach puts powerful engagement and big results well within reach for organizations of all sizes.

This presentation draws on Greg’s book of the same name, providing real examples and practical takeaways for audiences looking to take their social media, content marketing, and customer experience programs to the next level.
