SEAN MOFFITT BIOGRAPHY

Sean Moffitt is globally recognized as a business thought leader, strategy advisor, digital innovator, keynote speaker and author. The common thread? Sean lives and breathes business transformation, customer and brand engagement, technology, innovation and “the future”.

After a number of executive strategy and marketing positions at Fortune 500 firms Procter & Gamble, Molson Coors and Diageo, he founded Wikibrands in 2011 (www.wiki-brands.com) and Agent Wildfire in 2005, to deliver both consultancy and marketing services in a fast-changing digital marketplace.

He recently launched The North Collective – a global, futureproofing solutions firm partnering with change-driven organizations and CSW2 – a services group connecting the dots of the crowd economy.

Sean has worked with hundreds of companies on digital strategy, culture and marketing challenges and acts as an executive advisor on a number of boards. As one of Canada’s leading thinkers and practitioners on the digital marketplace, Sean keynotes and delivers workshops at 45+ events annually and has spoken in over 20+ countries. He uses his voice of experience, signature humour and fresh, bold insights to guide audiences on how to create real value in the new economy.

Sean has written an award-winning and globally-acclaimed book “Wikibrands – Reinventing Your Business in a Customer-Controlled Marketplace (McGraw-Hill)”, authors four studies on business, technology and cultural trends annually and leads a global youth leader digital accelerator, He also makes frequent appearances in media, is highly active in social media and Canada’s startup community, acts as an executive curator for Crowdsourcing Week, and is a strong supporter of cause- and education-driven organizations.

When not staying up to speed with the many facets of the new economy, Sean can be seen around Toronto either cycling, running, travelling, enjoying a finely crafted beer, sifting through a page-turning book, rooting for his favourite sports teams, chewing on classic films and Netflix’s hidden gems and playing ice hockey (it’s a Canadian patriotic ritual). And yes, he does have a passing resemblance to Matt Damon.

Wikibrands - Post-Modern Marketing and 12 Market-tested Principles ... Still

LinkedIn

Even though we published Wikibrands (McGraw-Hill) in the start of 2011, the idea of customer-centric marketing, deep outside-in engagement and delivering a provocative, innovative proposition remains paramount for brands to survive and thrive. We have seen countless falls by the wayside even in the last 5 years (Nokia, Kodak, Radio Shack, Quirky, American Apparel, American Idol). Back then we interviewed the top 100 companies we thought were doing a great job and adopted our 9 principles in post-modern marketing/branding or what we called Wikibrands. We carefully avoided using statistics in our book, as we knew these principles would outlive any lust for 300 million Facebook Users )now over...

The Top 50 of The Crowd Economy

LinkedIn

It's funny given all of the business, cultural and media interest in "the crowd" and its various components - crowdfunding, cryptocurrencies, open innovation, crowdsourcing, online communities, the sharing economy, the on-demand economy, peer-to-peer-lending and commerce and now crytocurrencies - that there hasn't been a "best of" in this world. Similar to the Oscars, I don't think these awards/rankings would be based on the most used, or the most money made or raised or the biggest media buzz - it would have to be a judged rank of importance based on: pace and level of innovation, headline interest, scale of adoption, leadership in a category or market, differentiation and delivery of...

Fast Forward - Editions #1-6 - The World is Getting Faster & Blurrier

LinkedIn

As part of a personal and new economy manifesto, I have been compiling the best examples of society, culture, business and technology keep getting sped up. It's one thing to say it is a "throwaway line", it's another thing altogether to find the evidence. Here is my first initial instalment of 5 posts (x 6 examples) that point to a world that keeps getting quicker, faster and tougher to evaluate. These snippets once again provide that whereas we may overestimate the change that is happening in the short term, we massively underestimate how much is changing in the long term. The key takeaways - embrace change, don't get stuck on one paradigm, experiment and fail/scale quickly.

Fast Forward - The Transportation Edition - Disruption in the Fast Lane #twsgfb

LinkedIn

Here is the second instalment containing seven examples that point to a world that keeps getting quicker, faster and tougher to evaluate in the “Transportation” industry. Over the last 30 years, massive disruption has hit the $4 trillion transportation industry. Detroit has shrunk into a tiny version of its former self. Air travel has continued to go through a constant boom and bust based on the economy and jet fuel prices, and has yet to collectively make a profit. The developing world can’t satiate itself fast enough for the taste of car ownership while Western-World millennials would prefer none of it. We all need to come to grips with increasing urban traffic congestion and its...

This is an important, perhaps seminal book. It was inspired by a multi-million research program,  Sean Moffitt as our outstanding thought leader and produced some profound new thinking about the “brand”. I encouraged them to write a book to develop their findings, and the result is a profound and stimulating work with far-reaching implications for anyone who cares about marketing.

Thank you very much for contributing to the success of the event with your knowledge, insight and passion for this important new economy topic. I have received numerous comments about how inspired people felt after your keynote and there was a lot of talk about needing to do a “part 2”. We couldn’t have dreamt up a better person for this topic. Sean Moffitt – thanks for providing a wonderfully energizing and motivating presentation.

In hindsight, Sean Moffitt was fundamental to bringing citizen engagement and social media understanding and expertise to the BC government. Most staff were apprehensive and uncomfortable with engaging more directly with citizens. We approached Sean Moffitt to lead our strategy, education and resources to support staff as they embarked on this new way of doing business. Sean Moffitt went above and beyond to prepare superior leadership, counsel, content and several high quality resources that could be used after the fact. Sean Moffitt is extremely bright, enthusiastic, and a truly engaging leader who provided a deep level of insight that was exceptionally useful throughout the organization....
