Providing Valuable, Actionable Content
Each presentation is designed around three concepts:
Your audience’s time is valuable and I respect their time. Each talk is created on the premise of making sure your audience can take what they have learned and implement it immediately.
I do not use speaking opportunities as a tool to upsell or acquire customers.Speaking is not a marketing activity for me. It’s my product. I do not speak to promote myself. It’s not about getting exposure or being given an opportunity. My presentations are a product in and of themselves.Click To Tweet
Each talk is tailored to your audience. My popular presentations are updated regularly and tailored to your audience or I will create a new talk specifically around your audience and topic.
I am not there to lecture. While each talk is capable of standing on its own as a lecture, they are created to encourage interaction and conversation whenever possible. I do not ask that questions wait until the end. The talk is for your audience. The goal is to provide them with what they want or need, not what I want to tell them.
All presentations are designed to allow me to present all of the material AND accommodate your audience’s needs.

What Others Have Said:
“Yours was really the best presentation of the day, and certainly you are one of a few people who has a grasp of how to maximize this asset… and the only person who’s ever explained it well to me. I’m in the media. I’m well-connected with lots of communicators, and none of them have caused the lightbulb to go on for me. (WordCamp LasVegas 2017)

“Robert has spoken at my events and workshops on three occasions and there is a reason I keep asking him back; he’s an exceptional speaker, delivers fantastic content and leaves the audience feeling like they have some new knowledge they can implement. (From LinkedIn)”
Julie Fry (Chief Mom Officer)
“I’ve been working on my social media networking tactics following Robert’s advice. After just one week I’ve already seen significant improvements in terms of profile views, influencer connections, traffic to my website, and subscribers to my list. (From LinkedIn)”
Clement Lim (Freelance Copywriter and Content Marketer)
“I attended your talk this morning with PRSA. I used to teach social media and now work with Thurston County Elections. I can’t tell you how greatly I appreciated your talk. The theory of getting someone to visit your social business pages flips everything I’d believed on its heels. I’ll definitely play around at work with some of your ideas!”
Valerie Walston (One very smart lady at the Thurston County Auditor’s Office)
