Black Hat World Conference

The Diamond Standard BHW Event

Las Vegas NV, USA
15 - 17 November 2014

BHW conference has grown into something better, bigger & more essential to the success of your business. We've teamed up with some of the world's most influential and provocative thinkers and we're sponsoring the event which will truly help you maximise your earning potential. It's a unique, no holds barred UNconvention: UNGAGGED - hosted this year by Erika Napoletano.

UNGAGGED will break rules. Rules you may not know existed but which have constricted every other SEO convention you have ever attended. At UnGagged, geniuses who know how to help you profit, will speak without fear of being told to STOP, by the corporates who think they're in charge.

You'll hear stuff you won't hear anywhere else, ever again. (At least, not until the next UnGagged!)

Things are changing. And we're excited to be part of the change. Looking forward to seeing you at UnGagged.

Speakers

We have an amazing range of Speakers discussing SEO and money making techniques with a level of detail that you won't find discussed elsewhere. We asked our speakers to provide their talks that were banned or considered too "risky" by other conference organisers, below is a sample of those intrepid thinkers.

Erika Napoletano

@RedheadWriting

Head of Readhead Writing Media, Inc.

erikanapoletano.com

When described by Forbes, they encourage you to think of Erika as a redheaded, tattooed Tina Fey with a special weakness for four letter words, but it's not all funny business. Erika is also an award-winning, twice-published author, including the branding book The Power of Unpopular, a columnist for both Entrepreneur Magazine and American Express OPEN Forum, an acclaimed speaker from TEDx Boulder 2013, and speaks at conferences across the U.S. on the inherent power of truth in business or as she refers to it, the power of unpopularity.

Erika Napoletano lives in Boulder(ish), Colorado and is the Head Redhead at RHW Media, Inc., a firm that helps people and brands get UNstuck and over those annoying problems that keep them from being awesome.

Erika's speech should come with a government health warning - not only will they entertain and educate but they are delivered with such gusto that you won't know what hit you. You will come out of any meeting with Erika feeling equal parts, inspired, awkward, educated and more involved in your brand.

We're really happy to have Erika at our conference representing the Redhead collective from the keynote stage.

Competition. Panda. Changing Markets. Penguin. Recession. Which excuse are you using right now for why you aren't dominating your market? The reason you follow me is I don't BS you. I tell it like it is. No fluff. No hype. Just test results and what is really working online. That's been my focus since I started marketing online in 96.

Yeah, 96. I realize I am an old man. Its painful but true.
