2011 Speaker

Laura Fitton

Once upon a time dubbed a “Queen” of Twitter, Twitter’s own mom-at-home to tech CEO Cinderella Story is HubSpot’s inbound marketing evangelist and co-author of Tiwtter for Dummies. Fitton founded (@oneforty) in 2009 when she recognized that software built on Twitter’s API was going to change the world. Now a thriving B2B Social Business community and SAAS management platform, oneforty eliminates the chaos and uncertainty around doing social business right.

Fitton is credited with convincing Guy Kawasaki and thousands of tech execs that Twitter would have real business value. She founded the first Twitter for Business consultancy, Pistachio Consulting, in 2008 and has been speaking professionally about the business use of Twitter since 2007.

She is a warm and engaging keynoter, has lectured at HBS and MIT-Sloan, and has been quoted in dozens of national publications including BusinessWeek, Forbes, Fortune, Newsweek and the Wall Street Journal. She also raised $25,000 for Charity: Water in December 2008 in the first ever “donate by tweeting” charity campaign, @Wellwishes. Fitton lives in the Boston area with her two daughters and two dogs.
