Conference Chairs

He is renowned for producing quality shows where the information presented is so good that attendees sometimes immediately start implementing tips during breaks!

He is Executive Editor of Search Engine Land and the creative force behind programs Search Marketing Expo events around the world, SMX London.


Session Coordinators & Moderators

Each individual session has a “session coordinator” who is in charge of selecting speakers and establishing the session format (who will talk for how long, on what topics and so on). The coordinators ensure that attendees get a session that is well orchestrated. Rather than speakers overlapping each other on topics (or being off-topic for the session), SMX session coordinators ensure that everyone is set to deliver a complementary performance. The coordinators usually also serve as moderators for their sessions. For SMX West 2014, our panel coordinators are:
