Why Do People Hire Me to Speak?
Two words: Energy and relatability.
Here's a secret I'd like to keep between you and me: I LOVE what I do. I love talking about digital marketing, learning about digital marketing and brainstorming possibilities and exploring those options. You cannot duplicate that energy!
I'm also relatable. Down to earth, action oriented, and a "real person". When you hire me, you're not hiring some celebrity or influencer people can't relate to, who got lucky or some fabulous PR: you're hiring a professional speaker who has learned, tried, failed and succeeded in digital marketing.
My key topic areas as a professional speaker are:
Entrepreneurship and choosing your own journey,
Customer centricity in business,
How any business can be a business for good, and
Defining and measuring success, on our own terms.
I believe in honesty and transparency: when it comes to speaking engagements, I generally charge $800 CDN for a 45-60 minute talk if part of another event, and $1500 and up for keynote talks or primary addresses.
By the numbers, as a speaker:
