More than 35 top creative professionals will be sharing their insight with us for Find & Follow Your Passion, our full-day conference taking place on April 6th at The New School. We’re thrilled to introduce you to one of our speakers, Geoffrey Colon.
Geoffrey Colon is Vice President of Digital Strategy for Social@Ogilvy in New York City. In his role, Geoffrey creates and leads execution of customer experience strategies for a variety of business divisions within IBM including Systems and Technology, Midmarket, Software Group, and Smarter Planet. These customer experiences take place on a variety of platforms and devices. He is also a subject matter expert on social business and heads thought leadership on emerging media, innovation, and disruptive business trends for the New York office.
Prior to joining Ogilvy, Colon spent time at digital agencies 360i, Bond Strategy and Influence, and The Orchard. He also owned and operated his own influencer agency, Frenzy, from 2002 to 2006, long before the advent of mainstream social media marketing; his agency worked with brands such as Red Bull, RCA Records, Diadora Sneakers, and Live Nation. Prior to Frenzy, Colon spent 6 years in the music industry watching it implode and realizing no business models are safe from the advent of technology.
Mr. Colon is a 1994 graduate of Lehigh University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Communications and a minor in Political Science. He spent two years post graduate bumming around and setting up his own dreams much like that of modern day “”Millenials.”” He is a regular contributor to the World Future Society publication The Futurist, is an educator on social media for Mediabistro, and sits on the advisory board of California-based 3D mobile technology startup Idea Giants.
Join Geoffrey Colon and over 250 young creatives for a full day of discussions, hands on workshops, networking, and fun. Meet the coolest creatives and companies in New York City, learn about different industries, and make great connections with peers and professionals.
