PPAI is presenting a thought leadership session during Advertising Week featuring a conversation with Seth Godin. “An Hour With Seth Godin” will take place October 1 at the Hard Rock Café New York.

Godin is a best-selling author, entrepreneur and agent of change, whose blog @ThisIsSethsBlog is one of the most popular in the world. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and, most of all, changing everything. Godin also will be the featured keynote speaker at The PPAI Expo 2016 in Las Vegas. His session will be held Tuesday, January 12, 8:30 – 9:50 am in the Mandalay Bay Ballroom, Level 2.

PPAI President and CEO Paul Bellantone, CAE, will join Godin on stage for a one-on-one discussion about Godin’s new book, What To Do When It’s Your Turn, as well as avoiding the race to the bottom, the importance of community-building and more. The topics explored in the discussion are designed to inspire, inform and initiate meaningful conversations among marketing and communications leaders throughout the promotional products industry and beyond.

Tickets for the 10 am session are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in attending, contact PPAI Public Relations Manager Kim Todora to reserve a seat. The first 100 attendees will receive Godin’s new book and a book signing will immediately follow.
