I delivered a two-hour session on Real-Time Marketing at the Tony Robbins Business Mastery event in Las Vegas on August 8, 2015. The talented Tyler Culbertson, who works as part of Tony's team on marketing and social media, filmed the Newsjacking section of my talk and we broadcast it via my @dmscott Periscope account.Read More
Tonight is the first US Presidential Republican Primary debate and the stakes are high as the field will get whittled down tonight based on each candidate's performance on the main stage at 9:00pm and those relegated to the “kids table” debate at 5:00.
My specific advice to Donald Trump is to live tweet from the stage during the debate!Read More
One of my most popular posts was in 2009 when I gave my top ten tips for incredibly successful public speaking. So many people liked that and referred to it over time, that I ran a follow-up titled more top ten tips for incredibly successful public speaking a few years later.
It’s time for ten more!Read More
Yesterday afternoon I presented at the Leadership Summit sponsored by Fortune Magazine. In the room were 650 entrepreneurs eager to learn ways to grow their business.
Since it was less than 24 hours after Super Bowl MVP New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was handed a 4 game suspension for his assumed role in the Deflategate scandal, I chose to use that as an important component of my talk.Read More
Several weeks ago, live video streaming app Meerkat scored as the product with the most buzz at the South-by-Southwest festival. Not to be outdone, on Thursday Twitter launched a rival app dubbed Periscope.
While these apps and a related one from Snapchat called Snapchat Stories are still very new, I see a fantastic opportunity for people to use them to live-stream interesting aspects of life and business and gain new followers and customers as a result.
I’m particularly excited about what Periscope can do for me as a professional speaker and how the app can enhance live events. (More on that later in this post).Read More
This past weekend, I participated in a four-day Tony Robbins seminar called Unleash the Power Within. It’s an intense, high-energy event focused on the breakthroughs that transform your business, health, and personal life. I participated with my wife Yukari Watanabe Scott.
I was not a speaker at UPW, so I was all in with the program! I’m struck by how well Tony’s ideas apply to those who are still doing the same old things. It’s about momentum. We need a catalyst to change, to do something different and UPW helps you to make lasting change.Read More
I love that many of the events I present at at have active social backchannels.
The #hashtags at conferences are now an integral part of how people interact in real-time, moving the content from one-way (speaker on stage to audience) to multi-way (people in the audience discussing the speaker’s topic which brings in their networks around the world).Read More
Today buyers dictate how they choose companies, products, and services with online content driving action.
At the HubSpot Inbound 2014 conference, I delivered a short keynote speech in front of some 10,000 people. My slot was fantastic - between a surprise appearance by the band OK Go and a keynote from celebrity author Malcolm Gladwell.Read More
