Great company culture is priceless. At JumpCrew, we hired 100 people in 100 days while still maintaining our unique identity. We decided it was only fitting to share what we learned and discuss culture with a panel of experts from Salesforce, Ambition, and others. This is great for companies who want to hire smart and hire fast while prioritizing their culture.

Speakers: Rand Fishkin

Clicks are dying. Whether on Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, or beyond, every major web platform is working to hoard attention and engagement on their sites, vs. sending traffic out. This shift hugely changes how marketers do our jobs. We need to change our strategies, we need to change our tactics, and we’ve gotta change how we communicate what’s possible to our executives, stakeholders, and clients. In this talk, Rand will illustrate the data in stark, clear terms and show how every lost opportunity opens the door to a new path.

All JumpCon attendees will receive three free books.

Alden Mills knows a thing or two about building teams—and we’re not talking about your run-of-the-mill, ragtag bevy—we’re talking teams that can accomplish seemingly impossible tasks.

Channeling Alden’s experience as a leader in the Navy-SEALs, you’ll get to the bottom of what makes some teams so amazing and learn how to ingrain these traits into your own teams. This is great for companies who need teams (dev, sales, marketing, finance, etc.) or an entire company to work seamlessly together towards the same goal.
