Andrew Davis’ 20-year career has taken him from local television to The Today Show. He’s worked for The Muppets in New York. He’s marketed for tiny start-ups and Fortune 500 brands. His latest book, Town INC hit shelves in 2015. He’s produced for Charles Kuralt and MTV. He even produced a documentary film called Roadside Ambition: The amazing true story of one small town with two huge balls. In 2001, Andrew co-founded Tippingpoint Labs, where, as the chief strategy officer, Andrew and his team helped companies like Putnam Investments, Breville and TomTom. They built digital strategies for publishers like Rodale and Meredith.

Andrew’s first marketing book, Brandscaping: Unleashing the Power of Partnerships, is one of Amazon.com’s Top 100 Marketing Books.
Andrew Davis’ inspirational, unconventional, and sometimes controversial concepts are a product of his diverse life and business experiences. His childhood acting career provided the training ground that makes him a highly-engaging and entertaining speaker at trade shows, conferences, and corporate events around the world. Andrew’s past experiences as a television writer and producer have contributed to his theories on how to build a relationship with a valuable audience through the generation of great content powered by exceptional talent. He honed his marketing and product-development skills during the first dot-com boom, which shaped his business-oriented approach to driving real revenue and results. Finally, his co-founding of Tippingpoint Labs in 2001, led to the practical fusion of his varied experiences servicing brands that sell everything from consumer products to subscriptions. Andrew got his start in the media business at a young age appearing in television commercials and voicing over radio spots for brands like Cadbury, Chevrolet, Six Flags, and McDonalds. By middle school, he’d started his first business—a magic and marionette show for kids—while he performed in operas and musicals with stars like Dame Joan Sutherland and Dukes of Hazard star, John Schneider. After graduating from Boston University’s College of Communication with a degree in Television and Film (and a minor in philosophy), Andrew stepped behind the camera, and off the stage, to start producing call-in, public affairs programming at a local television station. From there he helped support the growth of the cable news network explosion by joining VideoLink, producing segments for NBC’s Today Show, CNN, Fox News, CNBC, the BBC, and many more. It’s there that he had the opportunity to pitch, write, and produce segments for television icon Charles Kuralt’s syndicated program, An American Moment. Andrew chased his dream job to New York and landed as the production manager in the Muppet workshop for the Jim Henson company, helping contribute to the success of television shows (including Sesame Street and Bear in the Big Blue House) and films (including Muppets From Space and Elmo in Grouchland). The technology boom in the late 1990s sparked his interest in new media and he rode the wave through startups that included The Stock Market Photo Agency, ThinkAgent Technologies, and Sallie Mae Solutions, filling roles that ranged from marketing to product development. In 2001, Andrew co-founded Tippingpoint Labs with business partner James Cosco. Jim’s television background and training as a journalist, combined with Andrew’s media, technology, and marketing expertise, led to the acquisition of clients including financial services, consumer packaged-goods, publishers, and technology brands. For more than a decade, as Tippingpoint’s chief strategy officer, Andrew rallied his team to change the way content creators think, authentic talent is nurtured, and companies market their products. Today, he’s traveling the globe sharing his insight, experience, stories, and optimistic ideals through his wildly fascinating speaking engagements, guest lectures and workshops. Andrew’s first marketing book, Brandscaping: Unleashing the Power of Partnerships, is one of Amazon.com’s Top 100 Marketing Books. His latest book, Town INC, hit shelves in September of 2015.

Andrew Davis’ Intro Script

A starting point for your introduction of Andrew Davis.


Our next speaker is on a mission to change the way marketers market and business leaders lead.

He’s a bestselling author and an internationally acclaimed speaker.

Before co-founding, building and selling a thriving digital marketing agency, Andrew Davis created programming for local television and NBC’s Today Show. He worked for the Muppets in New York and wrote for Charles Kurault. He even produced a documentary film about the world’s largest ball of paint.

Andrew’s critically-acclaimed books, Brandscaping and Town, INC., challenge business leaders to rethink their roles in a new media world.

Today, Andrew is here to inspire us to ask the right questions and search out the best answers. This isn’t a ‘how-to’ presentation. It’s a ‘how-to-think’ presentation. And that’s just why we’ve invited him here today.

Please welcome… Andrew Davis.

Presentation Requirements

Andrew doesn’t use Powerpoint. He uses Prezi instead.


As you may already know, Andrew Davis doesn’t use PowerPoint to present. Instead, he loves to use Prezi. Prezi is an amazing blank canvas designed to free you from the banal constraints of linear presenting and Drew’s used it to great effect. In fact, he’s part of an elite team of Prezi Pioneers.

While Prezi works on any machine (MAC or Windows,) Drew prefers to use his own laptop for his presentations. Currently he presents on a 15″ MacBook Air complete with his own bag of cables that includes the VGA connector and a wireless presentation “clicker.”

More A/V Questions?

If your A/V team has questions about Prezi or any of Andrew’s requirements, please feel free to put us in touch. We’re happy to help. Please call: (617) 545-7769 or e-mail Elizabeth.

Andrew brings:

  • A Macbook Air with VGA, DVI, and HDMI Dongles
  • Wireless presentation clicker
  • A desktop presentation using Prezi
  • A presentation designed to fit 1024 X 768 Screens (If you’re using a 16X9 resolution, please let Andrew know.)

Andrew Needs:

  • A wireless, lavalier microphone
  • AC power plug to power his laptop
  • A projector (VGA, DVI, or HDMI input.)
  • A speaker system with a mini plug for audio output from the laptop.

Allergy Alert!

Heads up! Drew is deathly allergic to peanuts. Yes, deathly allergic.

Please let Drew know if any of the meals being served at your event contain peanuts, peanut oil, peanut shells, peanut byproducts, peanut anything. Although he doesn’t specifically request a peanut-free meal it’s nice to let him know. Especially if he’s planning to eat before the event (we wouldn’t want him dropping dead before he entertains and inspires your audience). Thanks so much for taking his allergy seriously.
