The story of Marcus Sheridan is a unique one. In 2001, he stumbled across his first business with two friends and began installing swimming pools out of the back of a beat-up pickup truck. 9 years later, and with the help of incredible innovations through inbound and content marketing, Sheridan's company became one of the largest pool installers in the US and currently has the most visited swimming pool web site in the world.
With such success, in late 2009, Sheridan started his sales/marketing/and personal development blog—The Sales Lion, and has since grown it to one of the strongest blog communities on the web. With so much success teaching others about content and inbound marketing, Sheridan has now moved on to become a very popular keynote and business speaker, known for his boundless energy and contagious enthusiasm when on stage.Starts: 03/20/2014 6:00PMEnds: 2014-03-20:21.000 Duration: 03:00

Richard McDonald is Fender Musical Instruments Corporation’s (FMIC) Senior Vice President of Global Marketing.
McDonald joined Fender in 1993, rising from an entry-level position to his current executive role encompassing PnL ownership, marketing and advertising, product development, artist relations, product education, and promotions and events.
In approaching business, his philosophy emphasizes a consumer-centric focus, sustaining relevance and fulfilling what he calls “the brand promise.” Among his many accomplishments at FMIC, McDonald served as Fender amplification and audio marketing manager (1997-2000) and vice president of electric guitars (2000-2003), an especially creative period during which he was instrumental in developing some of Fender’s most successful products. As Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, he subsequently led the unification of FMIC’s entire global marketing organization. More recently, McDonald has served as Brand Manager for the iconic Fender brand.
McDonald arrived at FMIC in the early ’90s as an accomplished guitarist from a musical family and with some industry experience in retail management. He has amassed considerable performing and recording experience, including 20 years as guitarist/songwriter with acclaimed Tempe, Ariz.-based world beat band Morningstar, and more recently with Alice Cooper.
In addition to his music career McDonald is a popular keynote speaker and emcee, having addressed major organizations such as General Mills, Thunderbird School of Global Management, HUB Magazine’s Brand Experience Symposium, Association of National Advertisers (ANA) Masters of Marketing, Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) and the Society for Information Management (SIM). Network Television appearances include The Travel Channel’s Made in America, ABC’s Shark Tank and the Discovery Channel’s upcoming series Manufactured.An Insider Look At Fender Music's Interactive Marketing PowerhouseStarts: 04/17/2014 6:00PMEnds: 2014-04-17:00.000 Duration: 02:00
