"SES is produced and presented by a team dedicated to ensuring you get
the best information, education, and value for money," said Mike Grehan,
publisher of Search Engine Watch and ClickZ and producer of the SES
international conference series. "At SES New York, we've made some big
changes to create a blockbuster agenda featuring Mike Proulx and other
top industry experts."
The opening keynote is entitled, "Social
TV: How Marketers Can Reach and Engage Audiences by Connecting
Television to the Web, Social Media, and Mobile." Proulx will examine
the changing television landscape and illustrate how brands must
approach the medium once labeled "traditiona" as new media.
According to Proulx, the convergence of television with the web, social
media, and mobile has put our long-standing beliefs about TV at a
crossroads with our modern behaviors around the medium. Social media has
created a new and powerful "backchannel", fueling the renaissance of
live broadcasts. Mobile devices allow us to watch and interact with
television whenever and wherever we want. And "connected TVs" blend web
and television content into a unified big screen experience bringing us
back into our living rooms.
Proulx is a Senior Vice President and the Director of Social Media at
Hill Holliday, a renowned advertising agency based in Boston, where he
leads a team with a focus on cross-channel integration, emerging and
social media. He has spent the last 17 years working at various
interactive, high-tech, and new media companies on the agency-side,
client-side, and as an entrepreneur. He has spoken at dozens of events
and has been widely featured in the press including The New York Times,
Fast Company, TV Guide, Forbes, BusinessWeek,
Mashable, and NPR.
Proulx conceived, produced, directed, and co-host the TVnext summit,
which took place in early 2011 and 2012. He is the co-author of Social
TV, a best-selling book from Wiley publishing that launched in
February of 2012. He is also the host of the social TV web series, The
Pulse on Lost Remote. He holds a Master's degree in Computer
Information Systems from Bentley University and in 2012 was named the Ad
Club's Media All Star.
