I love speaking.
Simple as that. For the past three years I’ve been giving presentations with titles such as “The Art & Science of Online Marketing”, “What the Internet Has Changed”, “The Day Social Media Blew Up the World”, “Neuromarketing: The Future of Marketing” and “How Dare You Be Normal“.
5 Reasons Why This Presentation Isn’t Your Regular Presentation:
- It’s entertaining so you know your audience won’t be bored (lets face it, most speakers are boring)
- It’s based on the marketing consulting work I’ve done over the past 4 years, so there are relevant local examples of companies I’ve worked with as well as case studies on various companies
- I usually give prizes away to people throughout presentations, I think it’s funny and audiences love free (money, lottery tickets, books, gift cards,
wine(just kidding), etc.)
- I have a completely different look at the marketing industry than most people. I’m in a generation who were on the internet at a relatively young age, so my presentations are very much based on the information revolution we’re going through.
- I love marketing, have you ever talked to someone who’s ridiculously passionate about something? You can almost feel their positive energy. I want to inspire your audience to look at marketing from a completely different angle.
What’s my day job? I am a partner in a marketing company called Strategy Lab in Regina, Saskatchewan. We work with small to medium sized businesses on developing and implementing their marketing strategy. Many of my clients give me permission to talk about what I’m doing with them and what we’ve learned while working on their communication strategy. People usually find the specific local case examples the most beneficial, I want to share those with you as well. Can I speak at your next event?
