Now a regular session at IIeX NA, I’m delighted to introduce you to the speakers taking part in the New Speaker Track!  These folks have never spoken at a conference before so let’s give them a hearty hello and welcome!

Today we meet Scott Boyer, EVP at Brandspark International. Find Scott on LinkedIn.

  1. Why have you never spoken at a conference before? I have always been the “behind the scenes” person focusing on operations and analytics.
  2. What would you say/recommend to other people who have never spoken at a conference before? Tackle your fears and try it.  Leverage the people around you to help.
  3. Why do you want to speak at IIeX? As I have progressed in my career, I now have more time to focus on advancing thinking in topic areas that interest me. IIEX provides me with an opportunity to start sharing these thoughts. As a natural introvert, it has also given me an opportunity to  develop my voice.
  4. What are you most looking forward to about IIeX? Meeting other professionals in our industry and learning about all the new methodologies and solutions that we can leverage to help our clients.
