Jeff is the author of “Blogging The Right Way – How to Create and Market a Killer Blog with Social Media”, a bestselling title in the Marketing and Marketing for Small Business categories on Amazon.
His mission is to “inspire and educate entrepreneurs to grow their business in the digital world”, and his blog is an exceptional resource for practical advice, drawing over 5 million unique visitors each year.
In 2013, Forbes magazine included Jeff in the Top 50 Social Media Power Influencers. In 2014, he was considered No. 1 Content Marketing Influencer and the same year he ranked 8th in the Forbes Top 40 Social Marketing Talent. In 2015 he became No. 1 in the World’s Business Blogger category.

The most important guiding principle that Jeff recommends to all entrepreneurs is: “Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up”.
You don’t get the chance to talk to the world’s greatest Content Marketing Influencer every day! From remote Australia, we are honoured to bring you Jeff Bullas, for the first time in Romania on the GPeC SUMMIT stage. Jeff will hold a 50-minute keynote speech at the GPeC Conference, as well as a Q&A session with the GPeC audience.
Jeff’s performance is called “3 Key Pillars to Successful Content Marketing on the Social Web”, and it will teach you how to create an integrated content marketing strategy, how to draw traffic to your website and how to turn traffic into leads and conversions.
If we’re talking GPeC SUMMIT May edition, we’re talking Karl Gilis!
Karl attended GPeC SUMMIT for the first time in May 2016. You loved him so much that we brought him back to Romania for the GPeC SUMMIT May 2017 edition. You loved him even more, so Karl Gilis will be attending GPeC SUMMIT for the third consecutive year in May 2018. Just to be clear: the “blame” is on you :)
For this GPeC SUMMIT edition, Karl Gilis will be performing a 45-minute keynote speech at the GPeC Conference, and on May 31st he will hold an all-day User Experience & Conversion Optimization Masterclass called “Get More Revenue From the Same Amount of Visitors”. The number of seats for the Masterclass is limited to 50. The lucky participants will enjoy 6 hours of premium content full of study-cases, practical activities and live demos!
If you haven’t met Karl Gilis yet, we’ll give you an idea why you shouldn’t miss him this time: he is the co-founder of AG Consult, one of the best-known Usability and Conversion Optimization agencies in Belgium.
Fed-up with speculation and feel-based opinions, Karl became obsessed with Data Driven User Experience and Conversion Rate Optimization. He makes website optimizations based solely on research and measurable results, especially since A/B tests allow him to examine the impact of the recommended solutions and of the website changes.
Also known as “The Conversion Comedian”, Karl gives a real performance on every stage he hops on, combining – in his unique style – premium know-how with entertaining real-life analogies meant to stir laughter and applause from the audience.
