Do you ever wonder why some trends last while others fade away? We often think of traditional advertising methods — like social media, TV, print, and so on — as the only way to catapult a product’s popularity. But it turns out word-of-mouth transmission is actually ten times more effective.

Marketing guru and Wharton School professor Dr. Jonah Berger, author of bestsellers Contagious: Why Things Catch On and Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior, is one of today’s most in-demand experts on why certain products catch fire and become contagious. As a highly sought-after thought leader, we’re thrilled to have secured Dr. Berger so that he can bring his expertise to our conference audience.

Dr. Berger is one of a number of top-tier headliners we will convene at September’s WICT Leadership Conference. Here are just a few of the superlative speakers we have in store for you.
