LONDON, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The iStrategy Digital Marketing Conference is delighted to announce world-class keynote speakers and panellists for its London event - a two-day foray into the exciting, fast-paced world of digital marketing - being held at Chelsea FC Stamford Bridge, London, on May 22-23.
Inspired by the excellence of Chelsea FC who will be playing in the Champions League Final just three days prior to the event, iStrategy London will bring together a team of speakers who raise the bar with cutting-edge content encompassing digital topics such as social media, video, mobile, CRM, analytics and more, ensuring all attendees have clear, actionable takeaways and key learnings.
With the London event now just a month away, iStrategy is delighted to announce its full speaker line-up and the addition of Brian Solis as opening speaker. One of the most celebrated commentators on digital marketing and the new media landscape, Brian delivered a fantastic keynote at iStrategy's San Francisco event earlier in 2012 and was kind enough to give away (and sign) copies of his latest book, The End of Business as Usual. Expect more expert insight in London.
Joining Brian Solis and bookending the conference with his closing presentation is Ford's pioneering and esteemed Global Head of Social Media, Scott Monty. Scott has been described as "an unstoppable force of nature" and "the best corporate social media lead on the planet," while Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford Motor Company, refers to him as "a visionary". Scott will give case studies outlining Ford's social media presence and success, and give key insights on some universal marketplace issues affecting all brands today.
Other top-level speakers include Pierre Woreczek, SVP & Chief Brand and Strategy Officer at McDonald's; Alexander Koppel, Chief Commercial Officer for Red Bull; Neal Schaffer, Author and President at Windmill Marketing; Bruce Daisley, UK Sales Director for Twitter; and Alexander Schlaubitz, European Director of Customer Marketing at Facebook.
Richard Stirk, GDS International's VP of Conferences is excited at the prospect of what he believes will be the best iStrategy event ever. "At iStrategy, we pride ourselves on producing market leading events with clear, actionable takeaways, delivered by the best digital speakers in the world," he says.
