In just one year, Justin Reves has amassed millions of views on his viral videos; garnered the praise of Uber’s CEO; and made international headlines on The New York Times, the BBC, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. A seasoned digital marketer, Reves knows that as attention becomes increasingly fractured across different platforms, brands will have to work even harder to make an impact. In his wildly funny and electrifying talks, he shows audiences how he—one man—was able to cut through the noise and do what many brands struggle to do: capture attention, make connections, and build community.
Justin Reves spent ten years leading teams in the traditional advertising and marketing worlds. With the papers in hand to become a partner at well-respected ad agency, he chose instead to start a blog, a vlog, and a YouTube tech channel to give him real-world experience in content creation. After making over 200 videos that first year—earning hundreds of millions of views— he and Greg Moore, a fellow ad-man turned content-convert, started their own Facebook Live show and co-founded the social media consultancy Pidgeon Social. Today, the former advertising creative has joined a NASAR pit crew, worked with Facebook’s live team, and even started an international “Moose War.”
In his funny, fast-paced keynotes, Reves shares the successes, failures, and insights he’s learned throughout his unconventional journey—and how to leverage them to your advantage. Whether he’s captivating audiences with impossible anecdotes (like flying to New York City to deliver T-shirts to the Tonight Show with no plan) or impressing them with the numbers (his Moose Jaw video alone hit 6.6 million in earned media, 1.1 million social media impressions, and saw a 35% spike in visitors in just a year), Reves’ passion for storytelling in the digital age is infectious. Audiences will not only be entertained—they’ll walk away with a renewed enthusiasm for their brand story, and the tools to bring it to life.
