Announcing Regional Business Summit Kickoff Speaker Chris Pirillo, Intel Chief Community Advocate
Updated: Aug 17, 2020
The Chamber is excited to announce that Chris Pirillo, Chief Community Advocate for Intel and Founder and CEO of LockerGnome will kick off the event with an interactive presentation on video marketing. Chris believes that a video strategy for your business is no longer an option – it’s a necessity. So have your phones charged and ready for this action-packed interactive presentation.
From creating compelling content to fostering community building to implementing winning social media strategies, Chris Pirillo has been helping define independent online entrepreneurship since the early days of the internet. He is known for his approachability, undeniable spirit, and candor - drawing hundreds of thousands of people to follow him and his recommendations throughout the decades.
Beginning in 1996, he's been focused on taking his industry experiences and parlaying them into something far greater than himself. He didn't just want to write & send email newsletters, he looked to advise email newsletter platforms for others to leverage. He didn't just want to create & sell eBooks, he focused on sharing a formula for others to do the same. He didn't just want to publish to a blog, he chose to help other internet publishers (and writers) be more successful. He didn't just want to host a community, he guided community-accelerating tools for other groups.
As an early adopter, Chris often inadvertently leads by example. His practical knowledge and insight is often leveraged by leading brands - and he is currently serving a position at Intel, helping them better understand the value of community in relation to their own efforts. He enjoys solving problems with practical solutions.
