Lithium Announces Khan Academy’s Salman Khan, Analyst Nate Elliot and Top Brands to Speak at 8th Annual User Conference

SAN FRANCISCO – March 18, 2015 – Lithium Technologies today announced the LiNC 2015 agenda with mainstage keynotes from Salman Khan, Educator, Entrepreneur and Founder of Khan Academy and Nate Elliott, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research. Industry-leading digital executives from Comcast and Telstra will also take the stage to share the digital strategies that are driving their business success. The conference will kick off with Lithium Technologies President and CEO Rob Tarkoff, who will address his thoughts on how enterprises are (or should be) responding to customers’ extreme expectations and sharing ideas on what he sees as emerging best practices for businesses in this new consumer era.

LiNC 2015 is the premier annual conference focused on the digital customer experience that will:

  • Teach: Attendees will hear how to transform a fragmented social program into a Total Community approach
  • Inspire: Peer-to-peer networking and learning provide a rewarding exchange of real-world experiences
  • Activate: Attendees will take back to their offices tangible tactics that will allow customers to share experiences, drive advocacy and ultimately improve top and bottom line results

In their respective fields, they have both shown how disruption and challenging the status-quo can lead to success,” said Katy Keim, Chief Marketing Officer at Lithium Technologies. “This three-day conference is a must for all executives who are looking to be the innovation leaders and digital disrupters for their organizations.”
