Jonah Berger - InstagramThe Same (But Different)

Influence has gotten a bad rap as we associate it with being part of a faceless herd that does whatever the person next to us is doing. It pushes one to become a lemming or yet another cog in the machine. But the truth of the matter is that influence is everywhere and, frankly, can be quite helpful when its power is harnessed for good.

Jonah has had the opportunity to speak to hundreds of different audiences, a variety of different companies and organizations, and has consulted for everybody from big Fortune 500s to the small startups. He has become a bestselling expert on the science of melding marketing and psychology to positively increase your brand’s engagement and impact.

His approach to utilizing influence is customer-focused and rooted in science, so at the end of the day, you can be sure that you are offering a product that people need when they need it.
