BLOGGER DETAILS

Bryan Rhoads

Bryan Rhoads

Founding member of the Intel Social Media Center of Excellence. Global social media manager for our consumer audiences and brands.

I helped pioneer social media techniques that laid the foundations for Intel to leverage Web 2.0. I designed and built this external blog at http://blogs.intel.com, establishing the infrastructure, legal, security and publishing guidelines that integrated social media into Intel's marketing mix.

I led a 4-year research project with MIT that researched online trust and digital marketing strategies. My Intel and MIT researchers designed innovative approaches to increase user confidence and trust in online media experiences. I'm also the designer of the Intel Download Center and many highly-trafficked sections of Intel's web systems.

Lecturer on digital innovation and social media at the Yale Center for Customer Insights, MIT Center for Digital Business, Innotech, SxSW Interactive, the Marketing Sciences Institute, the Experiential Marketing Summit, to name a few.
Adjunct faculty at Portland State University, I also sit on the Executive Board of the Internet Strategy Forum, the Center for Consumer Research at St. Joseph's University, the Marketing Advisory Track at Northeastern University and a member of the City Club of Portland.
