Good luck!

  • Gary V! Crush It! was really inspiring and I love his energy and enthusiasm. He really knows how to motivate. 🙂

    Thanks, Karim!

  • Hi Karim, I’ve had the good fortune to see Guy Kawasaki and Gary Vaynerchuk already, so I’d choose Avinash Kaushik as I’m an analytics nerd 🙂 Hope to be able to go and see you there!

  • Shannon

    I love the way the universe works. Was just working on my personal schedule for next few months including identifying marketing events to attend that are free. I’m starting my own business which equals no budget for events and while thinking this thought I log into twitter and see your tweet about this event and contest to win a ticket! Love it when things show up that fast. To choose one speaker seems a challenge but I’d say Guy Kawasaki because every time I hear him speak I always get value from what he shares and seem to take copious note. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this contest!

  • Adrian Berg

    Gary V. as I hear he’s very motivational and I think that’s just what I need to hear right now. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Avinash!

    @mk_robinson

    • Haha, didn’t know you were an analytics nerd 😛

  • I’m just starting to get into the marketing world and I think listening to any one of these speakers would be very beneficial for me. If I have to choose one speaker, it would probably be Avinash Kaushik. Although Dr. Sheena Iyengar would be interesting too.

  • Gary Vaynerchuk. 2 reasons. 1: First round of talks about “Thank You Economy” 2. To say thank you to Gary in person for writing the Thank You Economy as its a huge endorsement for Parade! Multimedia Brand Experiences.

    @dustinstarchuk

  • Gary V – I love how you say in your instructions “who you would most like to hear and listen to ” as hearing & listening are definitely two different things! #ImportantDistinction

  • Liza Mattimore

    Gary V – Crush it. The title says it all

  • Hey karim

    I saw Gary V. last year at demo camp Crushing it then and still is. But I would love to and more intrested in hearing

    Avinash Kaushik Cause I enjoy learning about Analytics

    And also want to Hear Guy Kawasaki speak about his latest ventures.

    Thanks
    @JonGauthier

  • Cansu Akalin

    Guy Kawasaki for sure. As a marketer, when I hear “chief evangelist for Apple” I turn into a fan girl going to a Ricky Martin concert.

  • Gary V – Always amazed how well he turned a passion into a huge business!

  • Anya Kamenetz! She’s amazing! Her newest DIY U is a must-read!

  • Heather Neave

    Avinash!! Analytics 🙂

  • Hayden Tay

    I would love to hear Avinash Kaushik! I would definitely like to hear his thoughts on analytics. I’m intrigued and curious about online data!

  • Love the speaker line up. If I have to choose one, I would say Avinash Kaushik – very interested to learn about the analytics part of marketing. Fingers crossed that I will win (and thanks Karim)

  • Imran Ali

    Guy Kawasaki is definitely someone I would love to listen too! His experiences say it all.

    Looking forward to the event!

    • Congrats for winning! Email intro has been sent to claim and retrieve your ticket.

  • I’m looking forward to hearing from Guy Kawasaki. He’ll be focusing on sales and strategy which is what I’m interested in.

  • Amira D

    I was initially drawn to Jeffrey Hayzlett due to the fact that I am a business student that has always had a big passion for marketing. I’ve worked for a bunch of CPG (Consumer Product Goods) doing marketing and branding and most recently focused on the brand revival for Dove. What Hayzlett did in reviving Kodak was truly remarkable. It’s something that marketing students look to as successful example of brand continuation. I’m eager to here the story from Hayzlette.

  • I’m looking forward to listen to Dr. Sheena Iyengar. As a Strategic Communications planner understanding (or at least trying to) the choosing/buying process lies in the core of my position.

  • Guy Kawasaki, but close second for Avinash Kaushik!

  • Rehan Z

    Guy Kawasaki gets my vote! Looks like an excellent lineup.

  • Man, that’s a “star-studded” (in a web 2.0 sense) and heavy hitting lineup!

    I’d have to say Guy Kawasaki – already met Gary Vee in person during his UofT Rotman talk last year 🙂

  • All of them! Excellent line up!

  • Scott Honsberger

    Garyvee, no doubt!

  • Hi Karim,

    While Gary V may be trendy and raw…. Dr. Sheena Iyengar is an inspiration. The choice is simple.

    All the best … Dave

  • Guy Kawasaki

  • Avinash Kaushik – ‘coz I think I’m addicted to analytics…have to check it at midnight, every single day…

  • Karim,

    I haven’t been fortunate enough to listen to any of these phenomenal speakers in person(being a true marketing enthusiast it’s hard to pick just one), however, I’m currently taking a web analytics course and so it would be great to see Avinash live!
