'Facebook's Secret Weapon' Is Coming To IGNITION

Carolyn Everson Facebook

Dubbed “Facebook’s secret weapon” and a “woman to watch” by the press, Facebook’s VP of global marketing solutions Carolyn Everson has had a high profile since joining the social giant last spring.

The ad sales boss is reportedly instrumental in helping major advertisers see the virtues of working with Facebook, including bringing GM back into the fold after a much-publicized pullout shortly before the tech-media company’s IPO.

We’re excited to announce that Everson will be speaking at Business Insider’s IGNITION: Future of Digital conference this November 27-28, 2012, in New York. The conference convenes industry leaders to talk about digital business. Everson will share the view from Facebook about the solutions the platform offers to advertisers, and the future of social advertising.

Early-bird tickets are on sale now. Grab yours here.

In addition to Everson, confirmed speakers for IGNITION include:

  • Jeff Weiner, CEO, LinkedIn
  • Jeff Bewkes, CEO & Chairman, Time Warner
  • Jill Abramson, Executive Editor, New York Times
  • Linda Boff, Executive Director, Global Digital Marketing, GE
  • Colin Sutton, US Director Social Media, OMD Word
  • Brandon Starkoff, EVP & Managing Director, Starcom Worldwide
  • And executives from Spotify, Tumblr, Google, and more. Check out the full roster here.
