OUR AMAZING SPEAKERS:
VP of Marketing at LookBookHQ
Woulfe is a revenue-focused marketer with expertise in digital marketing and demand generation. Equal parts creative wonk and marketing nerd, she’s an expert at bringing sales and marketing teams together through shared process, goals and KPIs.
As the VP of Marketing for LookBookHQ, Elle is responsible for cultivating awareness and turning interest into pipeline. A veteran in the marketing technology industry, she previously held senior demand generation roles at Lattice Engines and Eloqua.
Elle is a regular speaker at industry events and a thought leader in the field of demand generation and marketing operations. She holds rather irrelevant degrees in English Literature and Religious Studies from Northeastern University.
DIRECTOR OF VOICE AT RUE LA LA
Samantha Dulac is the Director of Voice at Rue La La where she leads the teams responsible for copy and messaging across all touchpoints.
With a focus on fashion retail brands, Sam specializes in defining (and evolving) how a distinctive brand voice flexes across multiple channels. Her daily goal is getting the Rue Member to smile - or better yet laugh out loud.
She obsesses over authentic content that drives value for the audience and positive results for the brand. She also believes in the power of storytelling and killer shoes. Sam has over 12 years of experience dating back to the print catalog heyday. Prior to joining the Rue brand in 2011, Sam spent her time leading copy at Boston Apparel Group and contributing to The Boston Herald. Sam resides in Boston with her husband and son – whose shoes are just as killer.
MARKETING MANAGER AT CARE@WORK
Jess Marble is a Marketing Manager at Care@Work, a division of Care.com. This small but mighty B2B division within a well-known B2C company has limited resources and big goals.
Jess has combined limited internal resources, a “pretty standard” budget, project management and a touch of creativity to create a year’s worth of content influenced by persona research, that is converting an average of 12 MQLs/week!
Prior to Care.com, Jess was a Sr. Marketing Strategist at Zeta Interactive and Marketing Manager at e-Dialog where she was responsible for sales and marketing operations, content strategy and lead generation.
