March 14, 2017

Today’s Guest:

With more than 20 years of marketing and business leadership experience, Tim Hayden has been a founder of new ventures (NION Interactive, GamePlan, 44Doors) and a catalyst for innovative change within some of the world’s largest brands (Dell, Bacardi, AMD, ExxonMobil, Hilton Worldwide, Kraft Foods, Edelman, and others).

Part social anthropologist, part strategic marketing executive, Tim studies communications behavior and how new media and mobility are reshaping all of business. From operations to marketing and customer service, he assembles technology, adoption and communications initiatives that lead to efficiency and profitability.

You’ll Learn:

  • How Tim’s experience producing events led him to a career in mobile.
  • Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water; new tech doesn’t automatically kill off anything old.
  • It’s the human we’re trying to reach not the screen.
  • Why Tim believes Twitter is still the best place to connect.
  • If you only have 5 minutes in the say, go to Convince & Convert.

 

3 Key Points:

  1. Take more risks. You miss opportunity by being overly conservative.
  2. Digital marketing is not something that is strictly technologically driven.
  3. If Facebook is going to be a news source they are going to have to become responsible in a unbiased way with regard to the way people get their news.
