Our guest speaker made history when he used YouTube to show his displeasure with a major multinational corporation that failed in the area of customer service. After spending many months trying to get satisfaction, our guest speaker used his natural talent to create and post videos to YouTube. He made his point, he made his career, and at the same time, he made social media history.
Since then, he’s been using what he learned in his person experiences to promote social advocacy for customer service. He’ll be delivering the MEGAComm keynote speech in the morning to open the conference and will present one session in the MARCOM track later in the day (and if we are all very lucky, he’ll share his amazing music with us at the end of the day).
Ladies and gentlemen, our guest speaker is….Dave Carroll, of United Breaks Guitars fame.
