Who better to MC the first ever Ignite Houston than Brian Block? As many of you know, Brian said he’d do anything for me including marry me (see picture below) so I knew he wouldn’t refuse when we asked him to MC this event. You’re in for one heck of a treat!
BIO: Brian I. Block, Senior Account Executive/Social Media Strategist, has been with Pierpont Communications since 2006. Brian manages social media and civic engagement activities for clients from a wide range of industries and backgrounds. This includes facilitating online and offline community engagement, social media education, corporate volunteerism, sponsorship management and general marketing activities.
Brian is an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America and serves as a member of the Sam Houston Area Council Marketing Committee where he advises on social media activities. Brian serves this function for other organizations including the Houston Area Women’s Center and Jewish Family Service of Houston. He is called upon by other non-profit organizations to serve as social media counsel whenever the need arises.
Brian speaks frequently to various organizations about social media for business, community engagement and for fun throughout the year.
