Marketing keynote speaker specializing in content marketing

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

Looking for a keynote speaker 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.
