We’re over-the-moon excited to announce THREE new speakers who have been added to the Marketing United 2017
Before you ask: No, we didn't invite them to speak at Marketing United because they share our fondness for stylish glasses (though that's a plus). These folks are absolutely brilliant marketers with a ton of wisdom to share, and we can’t wait to hear them dish out valuable expertise in April.
Meet them below!
Curtis Midkiff is the Senior Advisor on the Social Business team at Southwest Airlines
, the country’s largest domestic airline and
the most successful low-fare, high-frequency carrier.
The Social Business team at Southwest is responsible for setting the strategic vision for social across the enterprise, and Curtis has the primary responsibility of building on the current social business roadmap with a focus on long-term planning for the future.
Prior to joining Southwest Airlines, Curtis served as Director of Social Engagement for the American Red Cross and Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM). Curtis is a recognized thought leader on social media strategy for brands and has been featured in a range of media outlets including MSNBC.com
, Bloomberg, Forbes.com
, The Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post.
After mastering table-based HTML in college, Justine fell in love with the unruly art of email design, helping some of the world’s biggest brands build and manage their email campaigns.
Justine is currently VP of Marketing at Litmus
, where she and her team are obsessed with helping marketers create, test, and send better email. Named “Email Marketing Thought Leader of the Year” by the Direct Marketing Association in 2015, Justine is also informally known as “Judge Jordan” for her candid, relatable, and actionable advice. She’s strangely passionate about this email marketing thing, hates being called a spammer, and still gets nervous when it’s time to hit the send button.
co-founder Oli Gardner has seen more landing pages than anyone on the planet. He’s obsessed with identifying and reversing bad marketing practices, and his disdain for marketers who send campaign traffic to their homepage is legendary, resulting in landing page rants that can peel paint off an unpainted wall.
A prolific international speaker, Oli is on a mission to rid the world of marketing mediocrity by using data-informed copywriting, design, interaction, and psychology to create a more delightful experience for marketers and customers alike.
