Our announcement about Kenneth Kragen being the CDO Summit's featured speaker was picked up by Reuters and hundreds of other new outlets today: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/04/14/ny-cdo-summit-idUSnPn79JFGV+8f+PRN20140414

Anyone who can get 6.5 million people to join hands in a human chain across America is someone we should pay attention to: http://www.cdosummit.com/register

Introduction
I am curator of the Chief Digital Officer Summit and founder of the CDO Club.

The CDO Club is the world’s largest network of Chief Digital Officers (CDOs).

Over 65% of global Chief Digital Officers are members. 

We help our members - and their organizations - deal with digital disruption, find exceptional leaders, build effective teams, maintain competitive advantage, and engage with their customers and partners more deeply through the use of digital, mobile, social media, and cloud services.

I was previously founder and Managing Director of the Digital Media practice at Chadick Ellig, a premier executive search firm that Business Week named one of “The World’s Most Influential Headhunters.”

I was Executive Producer of Home Aid, a campaign to benefit the homeless with consultant Ken Kragen (Live AidNet AidWe Are the WorldHands Across America).

My book, Be The Media, was featured in the NY Times after pre-selling 5,000 copies in 11 days via social media.

I've keynoted everywhere from the United Nations (3x in 2010) to Columbia University and National Speakers Association, from Amsterdam to Zagreb.

My award-winning radio show included guests Seth Godin, Wired co-founder Kevin Kelly, singer Jill Sobule, craigslist’s Craig Newmark, and Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales.

From 1999-2002 I was CEO of Kinecta, where I raised $30 million in 2 years. Kinecta is now part of Oracle <NASDAQ: ORCL>

From 1994-1999 I was Vice President with Reuters, where I pioneered online syndication, years before RSS was invented.

I have served on numerous boards including Director of Home Aid America.
