Dale Bertrand, Keynote Speaker
SEO | E-Commerce | Agency Ops
We’ve all sat through our share of monotone lectures with text-heavy slides.
My talks are different. I use storytelling, humor, and enthusiasm to deliver actionable insights that audiences remember long after they return to their desks.
I speak on digital marketing, e-commerce, and agency operations topics that fit my diverse professional background.
- Technologist. I built the machinery that drives the internet, including high-performance computing systems for the National Security Agency
- Marketer. I invented Authority-First SEO™ – a novel approach that delivers a 2-3x lift in organic search revenue.
- Teacher. I’ve trained marketing professionals from TripAdvisor, Microsoft, HubSpot, Digitas, and Proctor & Gamble.
- Speaker. I speak at dozens of events per year. I know what it takes to excite an audience!
Using meticulous preparation, audience participation, and a bit of the unexpected, I’ll engage, entertain, and educate your audience – just as I’ve done at Inbound, AdWorld, Content Marketing World, and more. Let’s connect!
