Smart Content SummitAlan Wolk
Chairman
2nd Screen Society



Recently named Chairman of the 2nd Screen Society, Alan Wolk has become one of the industry’s most influential thought leaders and futurists. He was recognized last year by Wired as one of the Top 20 Thinkers In Social TV and Second Screen.
His blog, The Toad Stool, is widely read and has become a forum for discussion around the changes coming from Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Redmond, London, New York and beyond.
Wolk has written and spoken extensively about these upcoming changes and provides his insights on an exclusive basis for clients around the world via Toad Stool Consultants, where he provides bespoke advisory services for clients in the media and entertainment industries.
Wolk was also the founder and guiding force behind the Hive Awards for the Unsung Heroes of the Internet, a new award show that debuted at SXSW Interactive in March 2010.
A frequent contributor to Digiday, Beet.TV, VideoNuze and other industry news sites, Wolk has been interviewed and quoted by everyone from NPR to The Guardian to CBC National News and recently appeared on a segment of public television’s Brian Lehrer Show about the future of TV.
Prior to “seeing the light,” Wolk was a highly successful advertising creative director who spent years at ‘90s hot shop Anderson & Lembke and went on to start up Atmosphere, BBDO’s digital agency, with stints at Ogilvy and JWT along the way. A New York City native and Stuyvesant High School graduate, Wolk currently lives in New Jersey, where he doubles as a Little League and basketball coach.
