This week we want to spotlight George B. Thomas, you may know him as @GeorgeThomas in the Community.
George shared some insight about what he started his own company and how he started with HubSpot. Get inspired by George's videos and discover what he does in his free time and with whom George would love to have dinner.
Tell us about yourself
I've spoken at events with thousands of attendees. I've trained corporations who have gone on to earn millions of dollars. I have 30+ HubSpot Certifications from HubSpot Academy – almost everyone they offer. I've created thousands of marketing & sales videos. And I'm a high school dropout. Hi, I'm George.
How did you start using HubSpot? Was it in your current role, or a different role?
In 2012 won tickets to INBOUND - Worlds Largest Webinar - Video on this page about my journey.
Tell us a little bit about your company and your position.
Impulse Creative - Inbound Evangelist in the LearningOps division. - Educate clients and employees on all things HubSpot.
What do you do for fun outside of work?
Walking, Vacation, Adventures, with the family, go to the beach, cruises, swim.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world. (past or present), who would it be and why?
Albert Einstein to talk about Einstein time. Or @Bhalligan2 to ask about his journey since 2010 and now. Maybe John Cena since his INBOUND talk was amazing!.
Thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself with us, @GeorgeThomas! I particularly enjoy all your YouTube videos. I've learned a lot from them, I can guarantee our Community is happy to have you in this space where everyone can learn from you!

🤣 INBOUND is like bacon! Thanks my friend, the compliments were very nice.
To be honest, I'm just trying to be Doug when I grow up!
Until then, I'm going to be the best George I can be. 😁

If I had to pick a top three, it would depend on whom I was chatting with.
So, I'll answer it in this way.
Marketing Software & Inbound aside ... Contextual Content, Reporting, and Email.
Sales Software & Inbound aside ... Frictionless sales, Sales Management, Email.
Inbound, Content Marketing, & Social Media Marketing
All of them!
But, I have to be honest, I love them all! ❤
P.S. SEO was really well done!
