Greg Jarboe’s status as a great public speaker was confirmed yesterday when the International Search Summit audience voted Greg as its very first ‘Medallion Speaker Award’. WebCertain, which hosts the Summit, introduced the Medallion Award to give audiences more influence over the quality of speakers they wish to see. The award is voted on by members of the audience before the close of the summit, rapidly counted and then immediately presented to the speaker at the close of the day.
Greg, who literally ‘wrote the book’ on video optimisation, presented a case study on the Voyage Channel – or Voyage.tv – demonstrating how to get the most from YouTube.com. He explained that “Right now YouTube is an amazingly good deal!” pointing out the cost of advertising on YouTube.com is significantly lower in cost that mainstream Google itself. The recent changes of the Google interface also featured in his presentation with Greg taking that view that these had only helped raise the important of video to the marketer.
Greg is the very first winner of the Medallion Award but as such will feature permanently on the International Search Summit website – to be joined by later speakers who also deliver excellence to the event’s audiences. Personally, I’m delighted Greg was the winner solely because he’s such a nice genuine guy and I’ve personally enjoyed listening to Greg speak for years! Well done Greg!!
