Simply leave a comment on this post saying which speaker you’re most excited to see, and why, and I will completely subjectively choose the funniest on Feb 11.

Who else is speaking?

Jeffrey Hayzlett, former CMO Eastman Kodak Company, is talking brand strategy and growth.

Dr Sheena Iyengar, Columbia University Business Professor is covering Consumer Behaviour and the Psycology of Choice. Last time I went to The Art of Marketing, I was most impressed by Sally Hogshead’s talk on persuasion and how brands grow through myths. I love Seth and Mitch, but Sally’s talk was outstanding – I’m hoping Dr Iyengar will have similar insights and entertainment.

Avinash Kaushik, web analytics guru is talking about, surprisingly enough, Brand Measurement: Metrics and Analytics

Gary Vaynerchuk, is going to tell you how to CRUSH IT.

Disclosoure – I have been given a complimentary ticket and copy of Guy’s book, Enchantment, in exchange for this post.

One of my all time favourite movies is The Castle, a quirky comedy from down under featuring Eric Bana in a supporting role. This is a collection of the best line being used throughout.

Some other great lines:

What do you call this?

Dale dug a hole.

That is going straight to the Pool Room.

How’s the serenity? So much serenity!

Everyone’s kicked a goal.
