Dscoop7: The Campaign for Next, the organization’s seventh annual conference, will take place March 22-24, 2012, at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, DC.

Hogshead delivers fascinating ideas, whipsmart research and passionate action. She teaches audiences how to instantly persuade and captivate in a world with a nine-second attention span.
