"Sam was the perfect choice for an opening keynote. His brilliance, combined with his easy, relatable delivery method set the right tone and remained a high spot throughout the day." -- Experience Inbound 2017 Attendee

Educate & Energize

Events and conferences are a valuable opportunity for people to connect and learn. They are not about you, the organizers, nor me, the speaker -- they’re about the attendees who invest time and money in their growth. Bragging about myself is always weird, so I'll let the event leaders who have asked me to speak and their attendees say it for me.

Whether it’s a sophisticated audience of specialists or a general audience with only a passing familiarity in sales and marketing, I enjoy the challenge of exploring complex ideas in simple ways that connect with the attendees. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable speaker who won’t have the audience answering emails and tweeting "#bored", let’s chat.

p.s. I specialize in... "encouraging" industries that have been resistant to change to get moving.

“Sam has an innate ability to draw his audience in with performance metrics specifically geared to marketing and business development professionals. Sam used humor along with specific targets to show how marketing and sales “smarketing” drives business growth.” The audience was totally engaged, continuing to ask questions well after the session ended.”

-- Carol Payne, Vice President Communications & Marketing, California & Nevada Credit Union League

Sam is well versed in consumer behaviors, digital landscape, and marketing technology. His out-of-industry perspective is exactly what we needed.”

-- Mia Perez, Conference Chair & Marketing/Business Development Council Executive Committee Vice Chair

More importantly, their audiences seem to like me.

"Sam's talk was energetic and engaging. Perfect way to launch the event. He is someone that I would love to sit down and have some beers with. He is a clear expert in his field, yet also funny, engaging, a truly excellent speaker, and interesting person. I found his presentation an ideal opening keynote, to set the tone for the whole day."
