TOD MAFFIN BIOGRAPHY

Tod Maffin is president of EngageQ digital, a digital marketing agency that helps such brands as the Grey Cup, Mountain Equipment Coop, , Abbott Pharmaceutical, OK Tire, and more.

He is co-author of TOUCH: Five Factors to Growing and Leading a Human Organization and two other books. His insights on the future of business have been covered by major media including the Globe and Mail, USA Today, CBC, the Huffington Post, and more. His energetic, upbeat, jargon-free and highly entertaining presentation style ensures that audiences are not only captivated and engaged, but entertained and motivated. He has addressed audiences around the world — from Stockholm to Berlin and from Romania to Australia — and is one of very few speakers capable of bringing an audience to their feet in a standing ovation at 7am.

In January 1999, he founded MindfulEye, an artificial intelligence firm that developed the patented Lexant technology to perform syntactic analysis on public opinion comments posted on the Internet and aired in the media, thus providing a “mood monitor” of stocks. MindfulEye went public in 18 months and precipitated a meteoric rise in his popularity as a technology futurist. Today, thousands of professionals in the international media, technology, and business communities follow Tod’s insights. He continues to report on national technology trends on CBC Radio, is the past host of todradio dot com and Real Life Chronicles, and was one of the world’s first podcasters and web masters.

He leads a small world-class team of social engagement experts, developing digital strategies, driving social engagement, and helping our clients build measurable results. Maffin is also worked with the British Columbia Institute of Technology to lead a passionate team of industry professionals who are currently developing BCIT’s Digital Design and Development program, producing the future generation of programmers, strategists, and designers. Tod Maffin is also passionate about giving back to the community. He has worked with many non-profit organizations over the years. Today, he helps people who have become dependent on drugs or alcohol, where he answers phone calls to an anonymous addiction recovery phone line.

2030 Vision - The Future of Business in 2030

  • In this fast-paced glimpse at what the business landscape will look like in 2030, Tod Maffin breaks down the top consumer and corporate mega-trends and reveals how they’ll affect all organizations.

Have you prepared your organization for the 21st Century? How will neuromarketing affect your sales plans? How will you combat loyalty-sniping apps? It’s a look at the what future holds for us all, solidly anchored in real-world business priorities.

TOUCH - Five Factors to Growing and Leading a Human Organization

  • For better or worse, digital business has fundamentally changed how organizations hire staff, market their services, and connect with stakeholders. The problem is, in an effort to use technology to connect with people more effectively, we have lost the humanity — that critical person-to-person connection — which is the engine of commerce. In a world filled with complicated web forms and digital marketing services, we have lost the “human” element in how we run our organizations. In this keynote presentation, Tod Maffin identifies these problems in stark terms, then provides business leaders in all types of organizations — private to public sector, small to enterprise business — with real-world, tested solutions.

The New Bot Economy - How AI Will Change Business Forever

  • It’s the lifelong dream of all marketers — a channel that is always on, always converting. That’s the promise of the “Bot Economy”. Little surprise that heavyweights like Facebook, Snapchat, and Google are focused intensely on this space. How do brands compete in this lucrative channel, while still maintaining top-quality one-on-one service with their customers? And how do the top brands — from British Airways to H&M, use bots to drive more sales, with a lower cost of customer acquisition. In this revealing keynote, Tod Maffin will share insights his agency has learned about deploying bots that can sell your product, help serve your customers better, and gain a wider engaged audience. All without sacrificing what made your brand valuable in the first place. It’s an entertaining and information-packed session that will leave you perfectly positioned for the coming Bot Economy.

How Big Data Will Revolutionize Your Business

  • In a dark room in New York City, three analysts spend their days poring over databases filled with seemingly random data about minor crime. But these analysts are among the city’s secret crime-fighting weapons, given that New York now exploits “Big Data” to look for minor crime trends. When a real-time spike is seen, the analysts dispatch officers to flood the area. It’s just one way that organizations are using ‘Big Data” to sell more effectively to their existing customers and, develop new product lines, and attract new businesses.

    In this information-packed session using real-world case studies, Tod Maffin will help your audience understand what Big Data is, and what it is not (perhaps more importantly), and explain the three keys to developing and using a Big Data implementation in your company.

Tod’s presentation style was engaging, his material was clear and concise and contained detailed information (not just tree-top ideas). He’s obviously been around the public radio block, so to speak, and offered a fantastic balance of eight tips along with real live examples.

Tod provided a wealth of knowledge, information and entertainment that has fundamentally changed how some broadcasters who watched him at our 2006 WAB conference continued their business operations.

Tod is not a cookie-cutter speaker. Rather, his ability to listen and identify a company’s specific needs and then tailor his approach to its stage of readiness is really unique to most gurus in this area. He is an absolute professional who will enthusiastically tell you your present and future. If you’re ready to hear it.

Tod’s presentation on Recruiting the Facebook Generation was to say the least, engaging, relevant and inspiring. His knowledge regarding the Facebook Generation is bang-on. His use of media and language throughout the presentation captivated the audience and kept you at the edge of your seat wanting to learn more. I walked away from the presentation inspired and motivated for change.
