Gunnar Hood, Chief Digital Officer at WSI Internet Consulting, is our speaker for November. Hood will talk about what matters to buyers in the Internet age.
In the prehistoric ages of the yellow pages, the seller was in control. Over the last 20 years the Internet has evolved, empowering the buyer. Hood will share insight on what matters to B2B and B2C buyers in the Internet age and how your business can thrive in this ever changing environment.
About Gunnar Hood
Gunnar Hood is the Chief Digital Officer and Principal of WSI-Summit, a digital marketing and communications agency located in Edmond, Oklahoma.
Hood brings over 20 years experience in corporate executive leadership roles using technology to drive growth, reduce complexity or solve problems. Throughout his career Hood found that focusing on the client experience translated to organizational growth and profitability. He has taken that experience and brought it to the highly dynamic world of digital or Internet marketing.
Married for 29 years, with 3 grown children, Hood has lived in many locations but calls Oklahoma home, having lived here longer than anywhere. Since moving here in 2003, Hood has served on many community and business boards and is currently serving as Chair of the Oklahoma City Public School Career Academies District Advisory Board and is also an active member of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce Advisory Board and is a Leadership Edmond alumni.
In 2012 Hood saw that Oklahoma trailed the nation in leveraging the Internet to attract new customers and serve existing customers. As he met with businesses he learned that they were overwhelmed by the increasing complexity of the Internet. Many had a website yet they couldn’t tell if it was bringing them any new business. Business leaders often said they were tired of spending time finding and managing separate suppliers for their website, SEO, social media, etc. Even worse, they had no way of holding their suppliers accountable for results.
Focus on results with an integrated web presence
Borrowing on his business and technology experience, Hood set out to create a solution to the problem facing many Oklahoma businesses. He launched WSI-Summit, bringing to market the combination of the global knowledge and footprint of WSI Digital Marketing with Hood’s business experience and local market knowledge. The combination allows him to provide a consultative approach to understading a company, its business and its customers while delivering fully integrated solutions that produce measureable results.
WSI Digital Marketing is the world’s largest network of Internet Consultants with over 1,000 offices in 87 countries. WSI has developed strategic partnerships with industry leading companies like Google, Bing, Hubspot, Hootsuite and many more. The result is that WSI can provide enterprise class solutions to companies of any size.
