The SEJ Summit is a unique conference experience tailored for search marketers, and thee event features a single track of vetted, keynote-style presentations given by industry experts and over three hours of high-quality networking opportunities. Topics covered will include: SEO, paid search, social media, content marketing, CRO, UX, Google happenings, actionable tips on linking, and how to make things happen in house. She was also a speaker at SEJ Summit in 2014.

Anne has spoken about the Nth screen about previous events with a positive response from fellow panelists and attendees. As an IBM Futurist, she spoke last October at IBM Insight. The conference trended nationally and there were over two billion tweets with using the conference hashtag (#IBMInsight). IBM also recently sent Ahola Ward to #TEDatIBM in San Francisco, where she was part of a small group of folks to get the conference nationally trending. TED conferences do not allow audience members to use their electronics, with the exception of press and in this case, IBM Futurists.
