Best Chicago Marketing Speakers

Amanda Gant

A while back, we posted this question on Facebook and got back over 60 comments with a great list of marketing speakers.


From that one Facebook post, we were able to come up with a list of Chicago marketing speakers. Sweet!

Do you know the marketing speakers on this list? You can vote up or down anyone from the list, vote yourself in, or leave a comment to add someone.

My other motivation behind this, is that we have Content Jam, a two-day content marketing event, fast approaching and this will help us when considering speakers for the event.

And of course, if you’d like to consider our own Andy Crestodina as a content marketing speaker for your event, drop us a line…

What are your thoughts?
