Jonathan Perelman


Perelman was Former Vice President of BuzzFeed Motion Pictures and Former Global Lead for Industry Relations at Google.  Currently, he is the head of digital initiatives at ICM Partners.  He knows how to stand out, rise above the noise, and get your organization’s voice heard online.  Pulling from his extensive experience at some of the world’s most successful and influential brands, he shows audiences how to tell their story in a genuine, authentic, and meaningful way that generates word of mouth marketing at Internet scale.  With great energy and stage presence, he breaks down the tactics and mindset that propelled Buzzfeed from a small blog to a cultural phenomenon read by millions of people.  Read more about Jonathan Perelman here 

Curt Cronin

Curt Cronin 

Cronin spent over 16 years as a Navy SEAL where he was deployed thirteen times and spent more than four years overseas.  In that time, living and working in an environment where milliseconds made the difference between life and death and winning and losing, he honed his talent as a catalyst for transformation and rose to lead the nation’s premier SEAL assault force. Curt’s experiences as a SEAL reinforced his fundamental belief that the competitive edge for any organization in the information age is neither technology nor information, but the unparalleled power of an aligned team.

Curt’s passion is to engage each person, team, or organization’s highest aspirations, and help them connect to the “hero within.” He has counseled organizations including AIG, Disney, HP, and the Miami Dolphins, and is an expert at maximizing human potential and synthesizing the strengths of a team to create unprecedented results in any context.  This is a ticketed event so make sure to get your tickets ahead of time, and you can read more about Curt Cronin here.
