Annual Event Provides Unmatched Venue for Thought Leaders in

Affiliate Marketing



Affiliate by Conversant today announced that renowned entrepreneur

and NBA legend Earvin "Magic" Johnson will deliver the keynote address

at the company's annual CJ

University event this fall. A Major League Baseball team owner,

two-time basketball Hall of Fame inductee, philanthropist and

motivational speaker, Johnson will deliver a keynote embodying the 2014

CJ University theme of The Power of Personal, followed by a Q&A

session led by CJ Affiliate President
Kerri Pollard.

"Magic truly is magic," said Pollard. "He's one of the most successful

entrepreneurs in the country, with the tremendous strategic perspective,

energy and tenacity that embody the affiliate business. We are

absolutely thrilled to have him kick off our CJU event this year. His

participation will help us make CJU a one-of-a-kind experience that

reinforces our loyalty and commitment to our partners and the business

magic that great affiliate marketing can create for brands and

publishers alike."

The CJU event is a unique networking and information-sharing opportunity

for the fast-growing affiliate marketing industry. It is designed to

empower all stakeholders in affiliate marketing, including senior

marketing leaders, affiliate experts, and leading publishers, with the

tools, insights and ideas that will propel their businesses. CJ

University's The Power of Personal theme speaks to how the annual

event provides an unmatched venue for engaging in one-to-one

conversations with other affiliate thought leaders.

To provide a great opportunity for anyone in the world to participate in

CJU across social channels, CJ Affiliate is encouraging people to tweet

a question they would like Pollard to ask during the Q&A, using the

hashtag #CJMAGIC. CJ Affiliate will pick three of these questions to ask

Johnson onstage at the Q&A, naming the winners' social handles.
