In addition to being a best-selling author, Jay is a keynote speaker, marketing consultant, and digital pioneer.

He's a tequila-loving, hype-free strategist who has advised more than 700 brands on their marketing strategy since 1994, including 31 of the FORTUNE 500.

His company, Convince & Convert helps companies craft and implement social media and content strategies.

Jay's first book on social business, and social media's impact on corporate culture (co-authored with Amber Naslund) was The NOW Revolution: 7 Shifts to Make Your Business Faster, Smarter and More Social.
