Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Pubcon welcomes Dr. Robert Cialdini, professor emeritus of psychology and marketing at Arizona State University, social psychologist, and author of the bestselling book “Influence: Science & Practice”, who will present the kickoff keynote address at Pubcon New Orleans 2014, the premier social media and optimization conference, taking place March 17 – 20 at the state-of-the-art New Orleans Convention Center.
Cialdini, an internationally-known expert in the fields of persuasion, negotiation, and compliance, is considered the “Godfather of influence,” and his New York Times bestselling book — listed by Fortune Magazine as one of the “75 Smartest Business Books” and by CEO Read as one of the “100 Best Business Books of All Time” — has been published in 27 languages.
“I couldn’t be more pleased to have the opportunity to present at Pubcon, which I consider a not-to-be-missed event within the search and social media industry,” Cialdini said. “I look forward to documenting how several simple yet powerful principles of social influence can be deployed via electronic media in wholly ethical and dramatically profitable ways,” Pubcon New Orleans 2014 keynote speaker Cialdini added.
“We’re delighted to have Dr. Cialdini present a major kickoff keynote address at Pubcon New Orleans 2014 this March 17 – 20, where his unique insight into negotiation, influence, sales, management, marketing, leadership, and communication is certain to provide plenty of the actionable ‘take-aways’ that Pubcon is famous for,” said Pubcon founder and chief executive Brett Tabke.
“Along with Malcolm Gladwell and Guy Kawasaki, Dr. Cialdini is one of the highest-rated speakers we have ever had, and we're happy to have him present a longer, more in-depth keynote than we have historically had at Pubcon,” Tabke noted.
Cialdini, who is Regents’ professor emeritus of psychology and marketing at Arizona State University, has conducted extensive bleeding-edge research on why we comply with requests — research that has led to his appearance in Harvard Business Review’s “Breakthrough Ideas for Today’s Business Agenda."
Among Cialdini’s many major corporate clients have been Google, Microsoft, Cisco Systems, Coca Cola, Merrill Lynch, Pfizer, IBM, The Weather Channel, the United States Department of Justice, and his groundbreaking work on influence has been featured in many mainstream publications including ABC, CNN, the London Times, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Time Magazine, Dateline NBC, CNBC, Washington Post, Forbes, and Business Week, among others.
Pubcon audiences are in for an outstanding treat as Cialdini will captivate with his inimitable perspective on digital influence in a must-attend keynote during March in lively New Orleans, kicking off the week of new media and search marketing exploration that for over 13 years has been known as Pubcon.
Join Cialdini and more than 150 other leading technology trendsetters at Pubcon New Orleans 2014 for an exploration of the future of social media, search and digital marketing.
