KEYNOTE SPEAKER Obama’s Unsung Hero

DAVID PLOUFFE, Campaign Manager, Obama for America

After winning the election on November 4, 2008, President Obama called Plouffe “the unsung hero of this campaign, who built the… best political campaign, I think, in the history of the United States of America.” Credited with achieving one of the biggest upsets in American political history, his campaign generated a brand loyalty program with unprecedented success. Plouffe shares with the audience the election story and the process of developing a winning social media strategy that inspired millions to engage in the Obama campaign.
