Nick Armstrong

I’m Nick Armstrong: the Geek-in-Chief behind WTF Marketing, dad, author, Ignite, PechaKucha, Startup Week, and TEDx speaker, audio drama enthusiast, and award-winning entrepreneur.

I’ve co-organized community events like Fort Collins Comic ConStartup Week Fort Collins, TEDxFoCo, Ignite Fort Collins, LaidOffCamp/CareerCamp, PodCamp Fort Collins, and more. My local efforts landed me a prestigious spot as one of BizWest’s 40 Under Forty in 2016, the Colorado Association of Libraries’ Library Community Partnership Award in 2018, and one of ColoradoBiz’s GenXYZ Top 25 Most Influential Young Professionals in Colorado in 2020.

Alongside an amazing team of super-geeks, I built out Fort Collins Comic Con to benefit the Poudre River Public Library District and have raised over $120,000 to date for the Library to encourage youth literacy through comics.

Through WTF Marketing and partner organizations, I’ve served a wide array of happy clients ranging from mom-and-pop shops to Fortune 100’s.

I’ve written three books: Psychotic Resumes, a Gen-Y resume creation and job search guide, Mess Hunter, a children’s book that I also illustrated, and a cookbook called Men in Kitchens: A Good Day to Dine Hard. My marketing writing has also appeared in anthologies alongside business and marketing greats such as Seth Godin, Ash Ambirge, and Leo Babauta.
