Jeff has spoken around the world for such corporations as Microsoft, Disney, Coca-Cola, Sherwin-Williams, Calphalon and Best Western, among others.
In his role as Vice President of Marketing Insights for ExactTarget, a salesforce.com company, Jeff helped build the company’s content marketing and social media teams, and he continues to spearhead research and thought-leadership efforts worldwide.
