Speaking at the Biznes To Rozmowy Conference

"Biznes To Rozmowy 2011"

On October 6th, 2011 I will be speaking at this year’s Biznes To Rozmowy Conference in Warsaw, Poland.

The focus of my presentation will be mostly on helping business leaders understand the real impact of social media at all levels of the organization and on aligning social media to business goals.

This year’s special guest is Randi Zukerberg, former Marketing Director of Facebook and founder and CEO of R to Z Media.

I really hope to see you there!

10 remarkable ads that you should watch

This is not a list of “my favorite“, “the best“, “the most creative“, “the funniest“, etc. etc. etc. These are just ten (ish) video ads that I consider to be remarkable.

Some define the incredible power of storytelling. Some are simple. Some are very complex. Some are old. Some are new. Some are inspiring. Some are very funny. Anyhow, here are ten remarkable video ads that you should watch.

Most probably you have seen some (or most) of them. Anyway, I am sure you will enjoy watching these great examples of creativity and (in my opinion) effective communication.

Note 1: The list is not organized in order of importance. Each video is remarkable on its own way.

Note 2: For videos 9 and 10, I could not decide between the different videos on the campaign. So I decided to include two videos from the same campaign. Different videos – same message.


1. EDS: Herding Cats

2. John Lewis: Never Knowingly Undersold

3. Johnnie Walker: The Man Who Walked Around The World

4. Volkswagen: The Force

5. Apple Computers: Think Different

6. Monkey Business

7. NTT Docomo: Xylophone

8. Google: Parisian Love

9. Dos Equis: The Most Interesting Man In The World

10. T-Mobile: Life’s For Sharing

So.. do you have any other great video ads you would like to share. Please share them with us in the comments section.

It’s all about teamwork

10 people. One camera. One take. Cool ad. It’s all about teamwork.

This is more than an advertisement video showing the evolution of video games. This behind the scenes video is an excellent display of teamwork.

Try something new for 30 days

Today is the first day of the month. Just another day in the calendar, right? … well, yeah but, perhaps it is also an opportunity to start something new and try something that you always wanted to do.

Matt Cutts, head of Google’s Webspam team, gave a short but very insightful TED Talk, in which he invites you to try something new for a month. I like the idea a lot and definitely implement it right away.

So … what are you going to try for tne next 30 days? Let me know. Good luck!
