Jeremiah Owyang, Our Second Keynote

We are thrilled to announce that Jeremiah Owyang, Disruptive Tech & Corporate Innovation Expert, Founder, Kaliedo Insights & Catalyst Companies, will be keynoting on Friday morning.


Keynote talk entitled: Did You Hear? Social Audio is the Goldilocks Medium

In the midst of quarantine, the top tech trend is social audio. Maybe you’ve heard of elite Clubhouse, filled with CEOs, celebrities, and the tech elite. Or perhaps you’ve tried Twitter Spaces or have read about Facebook’s upcoming product. In all these scenarios, communication is radically changing, as people shift to real-time discussions.

Why Social Audio is referred to as the “Goldilocks Medium”. Video is too much, text is not enough, but real time voice is just right, real time examples, as needed.

Why Twitter, Facebook and Clubhouse are leaning into real time voice conversations over text and images.

Case examples: How large companies are changing their communication strategies to appeal to this changing need.

Futurist’s predictions: What the 6 new product categories will be, as they emerge from this new category, A forecast of what’s to come, even as we move out of quarantine.

How your company can get involved and lead: Business opportunities for market research, marketing, sales, communications, executive leadership, customer care, and product innovation.


Jeremiah was captivating as our keynote speaker at The Social Shake-up. Several attendees made a special point of telling me that it was the best keynote they have ever heard. One attendee told me ‘I would have come to the conference just to hear Jeremiah speak.  –CEO, Social Media Today
