Episode 441 – Change Is Not Always Better… But Better Is Always Change with Warren Whitlock

Hi. I’m Warren Whitlock. My mission is to help brands improve the results of their digital marketing.

I started creating content for marketing when “new media” meant we could combine multiple slide projectors for a presentation. By the time I went online in 1981, I’d learned to push for better technology whenever it allowed us to achieve our objectives.

Throughout my career, I have created new strategies to use influence and persuasion to help people get what they want. I set hard sales goals and measured performance but never forget that people hate to be sold, but love to buy. I have been an entrepreneur in the computer, publishing, and media,

I look for collaborations where brands can share resources, extend their reach and give customers an experience they will want to share with others. I am currently partnering with IBM Futurists and a few brands and startups along with keynotes where I can engage executives transforming their organizations for an abundant future.
