There's nothing more satisfying than inspiring, entertaining and educating an audience....


The New York Times
Social Media Examiner
Venture Beat

Looking to hire someone who will inspire, educate and entertain?

What makes me stand out from other speakers:

I put in so much preparation as I want to be the best most talked about speaker at every event.

I recently gave a keynote to a travel blogger conference and it took me over 40 hours to create the presentation.  But it was so worth it!

I meet as many people as possible prior to me speaking.  This helps build the relationship with the audience.  I even stand at the door and shake hands with as many people as possible before they come in.   

I have the right mix of educational content, inspirational content and fun.

I am one of the most energetic people you can meet.  That is why I’m often asked to do the opening keynote. 

Major accomplishments include:

Building a tribe of over 20,000 subscribers in less than two years

1,000,000 visitors to
his blog in 2014

Being named a
Top 10 Twitter Maverick

Being ranked one of the Top 40 Digital Strategists in the world

Being deemed one of the Top 50 Content Marketers in the world

Ian is available to give talks on a wide range of topics related to building a business online

Building Content Conversion Funnels

Ian has developed a model called PRISM which helps people understand the process going from social or content marketing to a sale. He can go through the process or focus on particular areas such as building the conversion funnel.

Building Influence

Ian is passionate about the role of influencers in building a profitable online presence and has strong expertise in this area.  His last session on building influence was to a team of PR professionals for VisitBritain

“We invited Ian to speak at our global PR conference to give us an insight into how as an organisation, we could identify and monitor influencers to work.  Ian’s presentation was fantastic and was delivered in a very dynamic fashion. It had been tailored for our audience and focused on the travel sector with some great example of some of the tools available and how to use them.  Following the event, we received lots of feedback from our global team on how insightful and engaging they had found presentation and how they have subsequently investigated and are beginning to use some of the tools recommended” – Emma Meade, VisitBritain

Social Media and Content Marketing Tools/Tech

Ian has very strong expertise in the tools/tech space and will share very practical and actionable information about how to use tools to become more effective and efficient and/or take advantage of technology.

These sessions are extremly popular.  In a recent tools session for Social Media Marketing World there was 560 seats but 650 people attended!

Workshops and keynotes can be tailored specifically for the needs of your group.
