Jeff Sass: Branding Lessons - From Monster Movies to Domain Names
Jeff SassAn established and successful chief marketing officer and entrepreneur, once upon a time Jeff Sass spent seven years making low-budget action/horror films for legendary independent movie studio Troma, home of THE TOXIC AVENGER. It turns out there are a lot of similarities between film making and starting companies, and the lessons Jeff learned making B-movies have served him well in the C-Suite.
"Everything I Know about Business and Marketing, I Learned from The Toxic Avenger (One Man’s Journey to Hell’s Kitchen and Back)" is full of practical business and marketing insight and inspiration drawn from the often comical trials and tribulations of creating cult-classic independent films. Sass shares lessons learned from his experiences ranging from RABID GRANNIES to READING RAINBOW (yes, at one time Troma actually represented licensing rights to the Emmy Award–Winning PBS TV series!), and he cleverly turns his tales of movie making mayhem into useful nuggets of business and marketing wisdom applicable to any industry, including yours.

Larry Fischer's "Registered or Not Registered"
Larry Fisher invented a game show - where the audience competes for prizes while guessing which of the domain names listed are 'Registered or Not Registered'.  Sounds crazy, but it is CRAZY FUN!

This fun, lively activity is very popular at conferences and a perfect bookend to the day's activities before enjoying cocktails and evening networking, and Larry's careful curation and fun presentation style makes these a truly special part of the whole MERGE experience.
