[GOH] The Best Worst Tips From An Accidental Marketer

While chasing dreams of becoming an actor, director, playwright, restaurant owner, world famous musician and artist manager, Potoroo found his true calling by trying to avoid it like the plague: he accidentally became a marketer.

With training in marketing for the music industry, experience with Universal Music, indie radio and digital promoter Dale Speaking in Toronto, and now [REDACTED], Potoroo honed his skills as an “anti-marketer” and now he will pass his bad (but bizarrely successful) habits to you. Learn new ways to promote your art, writing, and costuming commissions, or marketing your music, your business, your event, yourself, and not feel awful and skeezy afterwards!

Focuses will include:


  • Best practices, and how to subvert them

  • Tell Everything vs. Say Nothing

  • Good Copy… as in writing, not copying other people!

  • Bad Copy… as in not copying other people… not copy writing!

  • Facebook Ads: How They Work (For Facebook… oh, also you)

  • Twitter Ads: How They Work (For Nobody… not even Twitter)

  • Synergistically spearheading the initiatives of marketing speak  through permissive native content creative with WOW factor!

  • Stories of how a “friend” incited legions of prospective customers to demand that the company give them a promotion and raise by deliberately breaking every rule in the book: misdirecting, toying with, and offering no reasonable answers to legitimate questions… plus a story or two from the music days (including BC artists Chad Brownlee, Hayley Sales, Hayley McLean, Hedley, Adaline, The Matinee… and how Taio Cruz is a jerk and Jonathan Simkin is a saint)

VancouFur 2017 Fandom Guest of Honour
Potoroo is the point at which music, marketing, low-budget horror films, jambalaya, unapologetic Tiffany fans, disconnected thought processes, the colour pink, Falstaff Fan Boys, obscure and discontinued soda pops, kangaroos and gargoyles intersect. If you had to boil Potoroo down to three words... you couldn't, firstly because words don't boil people, and secondly because only ONE word is required: Unseriousnessertude.

[GOH] Camp Feral! - 20 Years of Organized Chaos

In 1997, three Toronto furs returned from the first Albany Anthrocon inspired to start a local convention. The first fur wanted to plan a traditional FurMeet, eventually to become the biggest con in the north! The second fur had the unique idea of running the first Furry University with a focus on workshops and panels, run in a University setting. The third fur wanted to drag furries away from their computers and into the woods to be around nature and the furry community. Luckily, since everyone knew each other in the late 90s, they brought the ideas together and mashed them up, creating Camp Feral: Canada’s first furry convention, and the world’s first outdoor convention. Furries in the woods!


It was doomed to fail.

Twenty years later, Feral is either the 4th, 3rd or 2nd longest running furry convention in the world! How did it last so long? Easy: you can’t stop organized chaos! Potoroo shares some videos and talks about the history of Camp Feral from the first visit to the site in 1998 to how in 2010 they planned each year from 2011 to 2018. The backlash they got for having contraceptives free and available in 2003, the backlash they got for often unsettling and occasionally promotional videos from 2010 to 2014, the challenges of problem solving in the woods, the incredible friendship that has grown between Feral’s furry staff and Camp Arowhon’s not-furry staff, and a few anecdotes about stupid things Potoroo has done over the 13 years he has been chairman.
