He's also appeared on numerous other TV shows and films, is an accomplished stage actor and improv comedian. Besides his acting credits, Offerman is also a master carpenter who runs his own woodworking shop and the author of two books.
"Every year for our closing keynote at Content Marketing World, we like to highlight creative people that are a bit, let's say, unconventional, from Kevin Smith, to William Shatner to Kevin Spacey," explains Joe Pulizzi, founder, Content Marketing Institute, and author of Epic Content Marketing and the upcoming book for entrepreneurs, Content Inc. "As an actor, writer, producer and entrepreneur, Nick Offerman has developed the reputation as one of the most creative artists in Hollywood. He has a unique take on storytelling, and what it takes to get attention in a smartphone world."
This is the fifth and biggest year yet for Content Marketing World, with an expected 3,500 marketers from 50 countries in attendance. Offerman will deliver the closing keynote speech on day two of the main event, Thursday, September 10 at the Cleveland Convention Center. For this year's Hollywood-inspired theme, "Bright Lights, Big Content" we are also rolling out the orange carpet for actor comedian, and creative mastermind John Cleese as the closing keynote speaker on day one of Content Marketing World, Wednesday, September 9. Additionally, one of the world's most entertaining musical acts, Barenaked Ladies, will be the musical guests on September 9.
"We're beyond excited to add Offerman to our already-all-star lineup for Content Marketing World 2015," says Pulizzi. "Offerman will share insights into what makes a great story, how to stand out in a world of sameness, and why those who take risks and have 'gumption' make all the difference. I can't wait to hear about his creative process and his take on what brands should do with their content."
