Our Keynote Speaker


In 2001 and fresh out of college, Marcus Sheridan stumbled across his first business with two friends and began installing swimming pools out of the back of a beat-up pickup truck. Nine years later, and with the help of incredible innovations through inbound and content marketing, Sheridan’s company overcame the collapse of the housing market and became one of the largest pool installers in the US and currently has the most visited swimming pool web site in the world… River Pools and Spas.

With such success, in late 2009, Sheridan started his sales/marketing/and personal development blog—The Sales Lion, and has since grown The Sales Lion brand to be synonymous with inbound and content marketing excellence while being featured in multiple industry publications, including the New York Times where he was referred to as a “web marketing guru.” Today, when Marcus Sheridan is not giving riveting and passion-filled keynotes around the globe or consulting with businesses and brands, he generally finds himself on an adventure with his wife and four children.

VIP Party

 

We continue the tradition of our VIP Party which takes place the evening before the conference on Thursday, Sept. 15th from 5:30-7:30! This year our VIP Party will be at our host hotel, the newly opened Kimpton Cardinal! If you're not familiar with the Kimpton Cardinal, maybe you know it under it's former name - the RJR Building! They've taken one of the most treasured places in Winston-Salem and converted it into a breathtakingly beautiful boutique hotel all while staying true to buildings roots!

This is your chance to meet other attendees as well as our speakers and get to know them a little bit better before the conference the next day. We'll have food as well as beer and wine and if that's not enough - how about a game of bowling or shuffleboard which is all available to us in the Rec Room! 

 

We'd like to give a HUGE thanks to the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel for being our VIP Party sponsors!!
