One of the best parts of a marketing conference is hearing from people who inspire you. Seeing industry greats in action and learning how they took challenging problems and solved them can motivate you to make the same changes. That’s why we’ve chosen some of the best in the industry to share their stories and entertain you. Here are three of the keynote speakers you can look forward to seeing at Signals 19.
What’s an instigator? It’s a word most commonly used to refer to a troublemaker — but at its root, it means to start or incite something. To shake things up, to get out of doing things the old way, and to find fresh, new, and better ways. And it’s a title, along with author and connector, that Beth Comstock, the first ever woman to hold the position of Vice Chair at GE and frequently ranked as one of the World’s Most Powerful Women in Forbes and Fortune, has taken on.
For several decades, Comstock has instigated change within her marketing and communications roles at GE, NBC, CBS, and Turner Broadcasting/CNN. She has a finger on the pulse of an evolving business world, having been involved in incubating new companies, partnering with startups, and counseling business leaders. You can hear how Comstock helps organizations succeed in effecting change at her keynote.
Hasan Minhaj is prepared to make you laugh at his closing keynote on Thursday. Minhaj has a background in comedy and news correspondence, performing in a successful standup special on Netflix, and an award-winning appearance at the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner. He currently hosts Patriot Act on Netflix, a show that he created to cover both current cultural and political issues with “depth and sincerity.” Minhaj was named as one of Time Magazine’s 2018 Next Generation Leaders and 2019 Most Influential People.
How do you make your brand stand out? That’s just one of the questions the energetic Andrew Davis will answer at his keynote session on Friday. The bestselling author and speaker, who has produced for NBC and worked for The Muppets, has been published in The New York Times, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal and appeared on NBC and the BBC.
Davis is tuned into what makes fanatically loyal customers tick and will share how brands can get their own dedicated base at his keynote. Want to know more about Davis’ session at Signals 19? We'll let him take it from here:
