We’re excited to announce that Kare Anderson, author, columnist and CEO of Say it Better Center, and Digital Royal University Founder Amy Jo Martin are joining Mark Fidelman as co-hosts of our BusinessNext Social conference (formerly known as the Social Media Business Summit).
Kare Anderson is an Emmy-winning, former NBC and Wall Street Journal reporter turned speaker and strategist on quotability, connective behavior, and making places and conferences more meaningful by storyboarding them. She’s been a state senator’s chief of staff, co-founder of nine PACs, founding board member of Annie’s Homegrown and coach to over 30 pre-IPO teams. Kare also writes for Forbes, Huffington Post and the Harvard Business Review, and she’s the author of Moving From Me to We, Resolving Conflict Sooner, Walk Your Talk and Getting What You Want.
Amy Jo Martin founded Digital Royalty and Digital Royal University to help companies, celebrities, professional sports leagues, teams and athletes build, measure, and monetize their digital universe. Clients include Shaquille O’Neal, FOX Sports, Nike, The X-Factor, Chicago White Sox, UFC and Dana White, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Los Angeles Kings, Jabbawockeeez, and Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com. Amy herself has nearly 1.3 million Twitter followers (@AmyJoMartin) and she travels the world to speak about the latest trends in social media, how to monetize various social platforms, and how to successfully build a personal brand by utilizing social media.
Kare, Amy, and Mark will guide attendees through the three jam-packed days of TED-style sessions, on-stage interviews, and roundtable discussions with some of the world’s foremost social business leaders and influencers.
“I’m thrilled that Kare and Amy Jo are joining the show,” says Mark. “I couldn’t think of two more qualified people to help attendees make sense of the disruptive technologies and social business strategies that are accelerating the rise and decline of businesses.”
