Damien Trevatt – Founder of Ungagged “The Un-Conference”

By Michael Haynes | February 7, 2018

Damien Trevatt – The Man Behind Ungagged “Take risks, make mistakes, learn from both, but most importantly, don’t look back, just keep going.” – Damien Trevatt In an age with a never-ending supply of advice givers, Trevatt walked the walk as he took a huge risk in the Fall of 2014, creating what was then labeled, “The Un-Conference.” Trevatt saw a problem in the digital marketing space.

Tim Ash: Leader in Improving Your Landing Page Optimization

By Michael Haynes | January 22, 2018

In the fall of 2017, Tim Ash , CEO of Site Tuners , was the keynote speaker for the digital marketing conference  Ungagged . Typically, keynotes at conferences like this are described as stand-offish, snooty, and unapproachable. Those keynote speakers who claim that they are “approachable” will excuse themselves from conversations with conference attendees as if they are a surgeon rushing to the OR. And then there is Tim Ash. We observed for well over an hour Ash spent time with two attendees discussing everything from their respective online businesses, politics, and how to improve human relations. It was apparent Ash is well read, astute, and genuine. His respect toward the female attendees was also observed,…
