Called one of the top 21 speakers of the 21st century and an author of thirteen best-selling books, Seth Godin brings his insightful, inspiring, and world-renowned marketing approach to Syracuse for one can’t-miss evening. Godin is the second speaker in the 2011 Famous Entrepreneurs Series, which connects the Central New York community with the latest business thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators.
Forbes Magazine has praised Godin as “a demigod on the Web, a best-selling author, highly sought-after lecturer, successful entrepreneur, respected pundit and high-profile blogger. He is uniquely respected for his understanding of the Internet."
Seth Godin’s thirteen best-selling books have been translated into more than thirty languages. The most popular titles include Linchpin: Are You Indispensible? (hit the Amazon bestseller list the day of release), Purple Cow, Tribes (appeared on the Amazon, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists), Permission Marketing (Seth is credited with popularizing the concept), Unleashing the Ideavirus, and All Marketers are Liars. His self-proclaimed focus is on “the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything.”
Seth also maintains a blog (www.sethgodin.typepad.com) which garners thousands of visitors each day. His blog was ranked in the AdAge Power 150 and is the #1 marketing blog out of the 976 tracked. He is the founder of Squidoo.com, a company ranked among the top 125 websites in the US (based on traffic according to Quantcast). Squidoo.com allows anyone to build a page based upon a particular topic with proceeds going to charity and paying royalties to its million-plus members. Seth’s latest book is Poke the Box, a “call to action about the initiative you’re taking – in your job or in your life.”
