About Scott Stratten:
Scott Stratten is the President of Un-Marketing. He is an expert in Viral, Social, and Authentic Marketing which he calls Un-Marketing. It's all about positioning yourself as a trusted expert in front of your target market, so when they have the need, they choose you.
Formerly a music industry marketer, national sales training manager and a Professor at the Sheridan College School of Business, he ran his "UnAgency" for a nearly a decade before solely focusing on speaking at events for companies like PepsiCo, Adobe, Red Cross, Cirque du Soleil, Saks Fifth Avenue and Fidelity Investments when they need help guiding their way through the viral/social media and relationship marketing landscape.
He now has over 120,000 people follow his daily rantings on Twitter and was just named one of the top 5 social media influencers in the world on Forbes.com. It's the only time he's felt comfortable being compared to Ashton Kutcher, P Diddy and Justin Bieber.
His book "UnMarketing: Stop Marketing. Start Engaging" became a national best-seller before it was released, and recently a Globe and Mail #1 Business best-seller, National Post, Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon UK best-seller. It was also just named one of the top business books of the year by 1-800-CEO READ and one of the top 10 books by Under30CEO.com. The paperback version was just released to be followed by his second book in the Fall of 2012.
His passion comes out most when speaking on stage, preaching engagement and becoming one of the most sought-out speakers on the subject.
"One person even told me he stayed up all night after Scott's talk to rethink his entire approach to marketing his business. He was that inspired when he left." - Sloane Kelley, Co-Founder, GeekEnd
"An eye-opener of why, and how, we need to start shifting our marketing weight from the broadcast leg to the dialogue leg. And it doesn't hurt one bit that he made it the funniest and most entertaining presentation we all sat through this year″ - Tom Moradpour, PepsiCo, International Marketing Director, Pepsi
His clients' viral marketing videos have been viewed over 60 million times and he's recently appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, USA Today, Entrepreneur Magazine, CNN.com, Inc.com and Fast Company and was just named one of "America's 10 Marketing Gurus" by Business Review USA. That plus $5 gets him a coffee anywhere in the world.

We are about Connecting. Business. People.
We are a leading business community network connecting the disconnected to create value among members and in the community.
Quoting from what author Seth Godin has said about the purpose of tribes or communities like ours, our main purpose is:
* Connecting buyers & sellers
* Connecting information seekers with information.
* Connecting teams, collaborators and innovators to each other.
* Connecting those with similar business goals.
* Connecting job hunters with jobs.
* Connecting organizations spending money with ways to save money.
* Connecting like-minded, passionate people into a movement.
While there is strength in numbers, we don’t measure value by how many members we have. We’re not keeping score of our popularity or adding hundreds of new ‘friends’ we may never know.
We’re interested in people who understand that the real value of social networking is when it translates into meaningful relationships of trust. Where members help each other, form a community and prosper. A place where innovation, creativity and collaboration thrive. And self-promotion takes a back seat to generosity.
Our mission is to help members connect. Our goal is to be a leading community network representing the major industries in Orange County including: Food & beverage, Consumer electronics, Automotive, Motorsports, Software & Technology, Retail, Fashion & Action Sports Apparel, Pro Sports, Entertainment & Music, Recruiting & Staffing and more.
If you live, work or have interest in doing business in Orange County you’re invited to join us.
I look forward to connecting!
