About the speaker
Jackie Huba is the author of four best-selling books, including three on customer loyalty.
Her book Monster Loyalty: How Lady Gaga Turns Followers into Fanatics was hailed by Publishers Weekly as “a thought-provoking, well-executed look at one of the biggest music sensations of this generation” that “deconstructs Gaga’s strategies and offers advice on how to Gaga-ize any business.”
Jackie coined the term “customer evangelism” with her first book Creating Customer Evangelists: How Loyal Customers Become a Volunteer Sales Force. Her research on highly engaged customers led to the theory of the “One Percenters,” a small but very influential part of one’s customer base, outlined in her book Citizen Marketers: When People are the Message.
Her latest book, which helps people be more fearless in their lives, is Fiercely You: Be Fabulous and Confident by Thinking Like A Drag Queen, which was endorsed by none other than the top drag queen in the world, RuPaul. Jackie is also a Forbes.com contributor, writing about customer loyalty and word of mouth marketing.
She is an 11-year veteran of IBM and resides in Austin where she is the President of the Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Cub of Austin.
