Tweetable Quotes: 

“What are you branding? Are you branding yourself as a provider, or are you part of a group that you want to provide? And the answer is not the same for everybody.” – Jared Johnson 

“In my mind, brand engagement is what gets people to care about your brand.” – Jared Johnson


 Jared Johnson Bio:


Part consultant and part thought leader, Jared is one of the most influential voices working to accelerate the digital transformation of healthcare. When something new comes around, he’s the one who checks it out, which might explain why he frequently finds himself at the forefront of digital engagement. Jared is a digital transformation consultant, rapping keynote speaker, prolific content creator, #DigitalHealth Top 100 Influencer, host of the Healthcare Rap Podcast, and author of Connect the Docs: Put Digital Health Into Practice. When he isn’t playing digital hipster (he was podcasting before it was cool, or so he tells himself), he can be found running obstacle course races or hiking the Grand Canyon.
