1 billion youth worldwide now own a mobile phone. Every single one of them has a story to tell.

Each chapter is a story of innovation, hope and change combining the approaches of digital anthropology, social psychology and technology marketing. “Mobile Youth: Voices of the Mobile Generation” is written for marketers, technologists and futurists alike interested in how today’s cell phone empowered generation will change technology, media and even government.

Brand Democracy is a bottom-up approach to marketing practiced by brands like GoPro, Zappos, Instagram, Lego and Monster Energy Drinks. Where brand management focuses on top-down brand positioning, Brand Democracy seeks to create the brand through customer conversations and interactions. Rather than managing the brand, the company curates this peer-to-peer communication by giving customers tools and a platform to share their individual stories.

This short guide will show you how to get customers to pay attention to your marketing messages by making them part of the story. You’ll also learn how storytelling remains a powerful tool in creating value and how to use it effectively in the social era.

You spent hours crafting your presentation, you get up on stage and give it everything only for the audience to return polite applause. You did okay, but you didn’t wow them LIKE A PRO! Simply trying hard, isn’t enough when it comes to public speaking. If it was, we’d all be Steve Jobs or Seth Godin.

Public speaking is an art-form and that means you can learn from the best. By studying the habits of leading public speakers you, too, can become more like them. And that’s what the best speakers do, learn from each other. That’s why, after nearly 15 years of public speaking around the world, I analyzed and condensed their success habits into this book so we can all learn from the world’s best.
