Author, Writing Without Bullshit Author, Groundswell, Chief Trouble Maker

WithoutBullshit.com

@jbernoff

I’ve been a professional writer since 1982. I’ve coauthored three books on business strategy, including Groundswell, which was a bestseller. And I’m passionate about clear, brief, fascinating communication. HarperBusiness will publish my new book, Writing Without Bullshit, in September of 2016.

I blog every weekday about writing, communication, and bullshit. My blog generated over 1 million views in its first year.

For 20 years at Forrester Research, I wrote and edited reports on the future of technology. I learned to do far-reaching analysis of business strategy, then taught others to do so. As Senior Vice President, Idea Development, I identified, developed, and promoted Forrester’s most powerful and influential ideas. I gave hundreds of speeches around the world, got quoted in every news source you can name, and gave strategy advice to countless clients from the world’s largest companies and tech vendors.

I am also the CEO of wellnesscampaign.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to the pursuit of wellness through changing habits.

 Christopher Bowler

Christopher Bowler

Senior Vice President, Social Media and Content Marketing

Razorfish

@chrisrbowler

I believe “Social Media” and “Content Marketing” doesn’t have to be complicated. Simply put, it’s really just about being you. And that counts for a brand or a business too. But the key is to offer something of value which others will respond to and share.

I bring this same fervor to my everyday work as I believe each brand has something to share that’s valuable and that can make a difference. Whether simply to provide some fun, offer a “deal,” or provide a valued service, the key is to find the elements that make a true connection.

My role at Razorfish is to lead our clients forward in the use of ever-evolving social media and content marketing channels. Eighty-five percent of the time, this is acting as a cheerleader/evangelist/therapist/trailblazer to drive idea development and test-and-learn programs.

This all started way-back-when with online services like AOL and Prodigy, where I launched the first online ad campaigns for my clients, and later, on the burgeoning internet, introduced the first new product launch for a major appliance company. (What can I say, I like being first?)

My background is in media, where I started in offline advertising with Campbell Mithun in Minneapolis, before jumping into the digital pool at Agency.com, where I led the digital media and search engine marketing practice. And occasionally, I’ve talked my circuitous experience at industry conferences such as SXSW, ad:tech, Content Marketing Conference and WOMMA.

Nine marathons – so far. And I post as I go. Perhaps I’ll see you on Facebook?

An entrepreneur since the age of 12, I know what it takes to move great ideas into successful marketing programs especially if you’re not the top brand in your category.

In 2008, I launched Trepoint, a digital marketing boutique agency geared to helping mid-market "Challenger Brands" become leaders in their space, especially those in CPG, B2B Technology, and Entertainment. Over the years we have worked with a number of companies helping them improve the impact of their marketing including Miller Genuine Draft, Trinchero Family Estates (Sutter Home and Menage a Trois), Windsor Foods (Jose Ole, Tai Pei, and Ling Ling), Dunkin’ Donuts, EMC and RSA.

I’m passionate about helping Challenger Brands better engage customers and prospects in the most persuasive ways. And I’m constantly sharing my insights via Twitter @BillCarmody and via Inc.
