Join us Wednesday, November 21st in Ottawa as we welcome Saul Colt, Canada's best word of mouth marketer & the smartest man in the world!
Saul Colt is the Head of Magic at Freshbooks, a position cloaked in mystery which he will hopefully let us in on. In a previous life Saul was the person who launched Zipcar.com into the Canadian marketplace, was a key person in the growth of FreshBooks.com bringing it from 250,000 customers to 4.5MM and even knows what it is like to work for a large corporation from his time in a leadership role at Rogers Communications. Saul is a fascinating guy who reads the entire internet every day, loves all people, especially women and is tired of people asking him to remove his shirt. He was recently named as one of the iMEDIA 25: Internet Marketing Leaders & Innovators and has been called one of Canada’s best community builders/experiential marketers. Even Chris Brogan once referred to Saul as “exactly who you want representing your company”.
