Meet the Digital PR and Marketing Summit Keynote Speakers

Recently named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30” for her innovation in marketing, Julieanna Goddard—aka YesJulz—is a force to be reckoned with. Julz managed to gain a following that wasn’t just paying attention to her when she popped up on their timeline, but one that was tuning in to her radio station, buying tickets to her events, purchasing her collabs, streaming her artists’ records and even decking themselves out in Puma. They are not just followers but supporters, investors, friends from afar. Don't miss her keynote on the "Keys to Reaching Your Brand’s Demographic, Authentically."
