Marc Whitehead is a chief engagement officer at Cult Collective. His view of the world has been informed from an eclectic mix of work environments, from multinational ad agencies like BBDO to small independent communication agencies he started himself like The Hotbed, and this breadth of experience has provided great insights for his many speaking engagements.
Marc’s perspective is firmly rooted in the disciplines of strategy and planning, and the importance of audience engagement, serving as a catalyst for understanding truly authentic ways for people to bond with their favourite brands. He has shared this knowledge at industry and business conferences including the Ottawa Tourism Authority Conference, Canadian Realty Association Conference, and the Algonquin College Small Business Summit.
His penchant for early adoption fuelled his embrace of digital technology, dating back to when the Internet was in its infancy, and came into full bloom as part of the global Apple agency team, which inspired keynotes he has delivered including – most recently, the 2018 Digital Technology Collective conference in Sydney Australia.
In addition, Marc is a regular panelist on Bob Knorpp’s acclaimed weekly BeanCast marketing podcast.
