Today, you can find an in-person keynote speaker or virtual keynote speaker just about anywhere. With so many options, how can you make sure you’re working with the right one? My decades of delivering marketing and business growth presentations in over 40 countries have taught me that your audience wants practical advice to implement right away to grow their business. And they want to be entertained too! I customize my virtual or in-person keynotes and masterclasses for each audience. My goal is to make your event amazing. The core of every event I speak at is motivating your audience to take action and succeed.
Since 2005, I’ve been pioneering marketing and business growth strategies used worldwide. With 12 books published in 30 languages, people have been applying my teachings to help grow businesses both large and small. The newest, the WSJ bestseller "Fanocracy", I wrote with my daughter Reiko. We show you how fandom can be rocket fuel for your business or nonprofit. My international bestseller "The New Rules of Marketing & PR", now in a 8th edition, is used by thousands of companies and taught in hundreds of universities around the world. Discover how my books can help your business grow today.
You don’t need academic theories or vague prescriptions. You need strategic insight from a partner that has proven success in working with emerging companies and jumpstarting growth. I don’t study what others are doing. I do it myself. I’ve spent years in the trenches developing marketing and business growth strategies across the globe and shaping trends like inbound marketing, real-time marketing, and newsjacking. From serving on the advisory board of companies like HubSpot to working as a go-to-market LP at a VC firm, I’ve advised some of the most promising new businesses in the world.
Instead of worrying about the future, I show people how to position for success through in-person and virtual learning programs. I help you to re-imagine ways to reach your audiences because building fans right now just might spark your future growth. Learn to take advantage of real-time marketing and sales strategies. Set your organization up to exceed your goals by implementing low cost (and no cost) tactics that are proven to grow business.
“David knocked our partners’ socks off at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference. Out of 231 sessions presented this year at WPC, David again makes it into the coveted ‘Top 10’ in Presenter Effectiveness."
“David, you delivered the most practical and powerful marketing presentation I’ve seen. Outstanding! Thank you!”
"David was the keynote speaker at our HPE Storage Marketing All-Hands team meeting and he KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK! For an established business that deals with B2B relationships, he challenged the teams thinking of how our customers interact with us in a world of social media and ubiquitous information availability. I can’t wait to see how our team rises to the challenge of the Real-Time Marketing mindset.”
There’s a seismic shift afoot in the 2020s: Overwhelmed by nonstop superficial online communication, I've learned people are hungry for something more: true human connection.
Fandom is not just for celebrities anymore! Smart companies know passionate fans are rocket fuel to grow business. I will show you how.

Fanocracy means turning fans into customers and customers into fans. Fanocracy means an organization that puts the needs and wishes of fans ahead of every other priority.
