Hosting a marketing event is a big responsibility that we don’t take lightly. If we’re going to ask marketers to take a day out of their already hectic work week, we know the event better be top notch or our heads will be on a platter. Each year we brainstorm ways on how we can out-do the last, and quite frankly, I’m not sure how we’re going to out-do this year.

If you haven’t heard, One Squared ‘18 is going to be a can’t-miss event. We have a day jam-packed with four amazing speakers and an incredible lunch panel. If you’re on the fence to attend or not, take a few minutes to learn more about each of our speakers below.

I’d like to say “there you have it”, but the descriptions above don’t do these speakers justice. Their knowledge, skill, and experience are all remarkable on their own, so getting these four in the same venue will be a once in a lifetime experience.
