David Bullock From The Barack 2.0 Campaign Is A Class Act!
For those of you who do not know David Bullock, him and his partner Brent Leary have created the field model for the effective deployment of social media based on the 12+ month “real time” study of the historic 2008 Barack Obama Presidential campaign.
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Mr. David Bullock this past Tuesday at the RGASeminars Social Media Superconference 2010 in Nashville, TN. David surprised me with his down to earth demeanor and relatability. He spoke about his two girls 5 & 9, his beautiful wife, and how important his family is to him, which meant a lot to me. He has one of the most inspirational stories, that all started with starting a blog, and 17 posts later, serendipity started! ” A hand of God came into my life,” David said from stage… with several different opportunities and chance encounters unfolding that was like magic happening… and he knew if he just kept saying “YES” to these opportunities an avalanche of success was bound to happen, and that is exactly what happened. David was presented with an opportunity of a lifetime to head up Barack Obama’s 2.0 Social Media Campaign.
You deserve to hear David’s story…I captured 6 amazing minutes of it from the front row of the conference. You will have to CRANK UP your speakers as I didn’t have the best mic on me at the time. Watch it below…His message was transformational and yet simple, and my paraphrase of his message is this… If we can all just HOLD ONTO THE FAITH that whatever we want can absolutely happen, and we keep putting ourselves out there in the world watching for opportunities, keeping an open mind, and pouncing like a cat on a mouse when recognizing them… we can not just seize the day, we can create a masterpiece of a future., all starting from a decision in this moment.
I shared with David the vision of the talk fusion product to get his opinion, and created a video email template for him right before his eyes in a few minutes, he commented, “Joe, wow, this product is amazing, truly one of kind, definitely follow up with me on this product!”
