ViralBlog Speaks: Social Summit Prague 2011

Last year we have been delivering keynote speeches at several social media marketing events. Our tour went from Copenhagen to Milan, London to NYC. Last October, the Social Marketers Summit Prague was a special event. See the summary, including video interview

Igor Beuker, keynote speaker at Social Marketers Summit Prague 2011

In the stunning Lucerna Cinema over 250 marketers added great energy to a nice line-up, that included keynote speeches from: Social Times, AllTwitter, Underdog, Viral Factory, Google and ViralBlog.

The day before the event we did an interview in which I explained why some brands should really stay out of social media. And we talk about how we as Pirates of the Caribbean (SocialMedia8) fit within The Royal Navy (GroupM).

And about WPP’s future steps into digital and social. Check the video interview below…

The next day at the event, The Battle started. In my keynote Power to the People – Are you in control enough to let go?- you will see a me entering the stage in a boxing outfit, accompanied by LL Cool J’s track Mama Said Knock You Out.

A relaxing way to start, since I do love K1. And a satisfying choice, since the Czech national football team has kicked our Dutch football team’s ass several times.


An interview in Marketing & Media Magazine was published a week after the event. It’s in Czech, so only a view of you will understand my vision on Facebook, Google and the rest of the SF gang.

Ed Robinson of the Viral Factory did the interview on Czech National TV. Great choice, since his beard made him look like the KFC logo. And I’m qouting Ed himself…

A special thanks to Vojta, Pavel, Tiago, Neil, Ed, Gianni, Jakob and Lauren. Prague, an amazing city. The Social Summit, a splendid event with great energy and feedback from the audience!

If you like our written words, we are passionate to spread our story in spoken words even more. Connect to us, if you want to spice up your marketing event.

Our next event stops will be: London, Sao Paulo Brazil and NYC again.
