Marcus Nelson
Chief Advocate
Addvocate
When Marcus Nelson headed up social at Salesforce, he had over 8,500 employees—many of whom he didn't know, much less how they were representing the company on social media.

When he did know who these employees were, it was difficult to tell whether or not they were doing a good job. Consequently, this made it more challenging to validate the efforts of those representing the company well.

Finally, even If he knew who they were and could tell if they were doing well, there was always the question of how they could be activated when the company really needed to amplify a message effectively.

These pain points are what ultimately spawned the idea for Addvocate—an easy way to organize, measure, and activate a company's entire workforce. It's social for the rest of a company!

Jason Moriber
Senior Digital Strategist
Weber Shandwick
With over 15 years of experience within the digital and social arena Jason's career path had an unorthodox beginning. While studying to become an art professor, the Internet "happened," and it sucked him into its momentum.

Jason has always been interested in dissonance, the beachhead where cultural and social behavior negotiate and balance the past with the future. It's the place where new ideas evolve. Over the past 15 years, the evolution of social and cultural behaviors caused by dissonance has been radically accelerating, mainly due to the digital revolution. 

Within dissonance, Jason's career has been focused on "social communications," the way people invent, adapt and communicate due to these changes. At start-ups through to agencies his roles have been a mix of researcher, architect, designer and futurist, all within "social." 

Jason helps brands and organizations navigate the complexity of social communications by developing and implementing their social communications plans (influence, advocacy and engagement)
. He designs and builds their social teams (listening, measurement, and activation) and 
teaches and trains social thinking into communications teams, leads and senior executives.

Jason's current clients include Verizon Wireless and The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation.

Jason holds an MFA in Drawing and Cultural Aesthetics from The University of Connecticut and a BFA in Fine Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. You can read more about my thoughts on social here: http://jasonempire.com and/or follow me on twitter: @jasonmoriber.
