"It can be challenging to find speakers from outside our industry that understand and can offer concrete value to our diverse audience. Marcus clearly achieved that, and so we’re thrilled to not only bring him back to our conference for a second year, but also to develop a long-term relationship that we’re confident will help our members and industry improve and grow. That’s what motivates our team, and we’re excited to have found someone who shares that passion.”

"I am sure you get this everywhere you go, but your energy, content and passion are second to none I have seen, and your delivery is very motivating. So much so that I am now putting a videographer in the budget for 2019."
"Thank you for reminding us that we aren’t “different” as an industry, manufacturers or dealers. Our customers have basic needs and questions that if we answer truthfully can and will allow us to gain their trust. You have built a successful business on standing on the truth. Your passion, which is felt in your body language and voice inflection, coupled with your unabashed willingness to challenge the audience’s status quo made you the best speaker that I have ever heard.”
"We’ve had Marcus at several of our events. Our industry has enjoyed him so much that many have asked him to speak at their own events. Marcus is invested in your event. He researches your industry, he customizes his message in a way that is relevant for your audience. His content is fact based, has a common-sense approach and his unique way of delivering the message seems to break through to our attendees."
"Marcus Sheridan was the perfect presenter for our members. Because he is very personable, he connected with them right from the start. He has been through what they are going through in a volatile business environment. He presented them with real-life solutions that can impact their business today and tomorrow. His presentation is considered one of the highlights of our event."

Speaking for Boating, Marine, and RV Industries
As the Boating, Marine, and RV industries have recovered over the past years, some challenges remain. A few obstacles include:
- Gas prices have continued to rise
- Labor and material costs in manufacturing have increased, causing some consumers to be "priced out" of the market
- New types of boat and RV "ownership" options have come about
- The need for qualified technicians to meet the demands of the market has never been tighter
- Fewer new families are entering the boating, marine, and recreational vehicle space
As an avid boater and fisherman himself and huge supporter of both industries, Marcus believes in the opportunities in the space, especially for those companies and brands willing to think differently and restructure their marketing.
If you're looking for an exciting and enthusiastic speaker that truly understands and is passionate about these industries, as well as motivates your audience with practical and thought-provoking takeaways, contact us to set up a chat with Marcus.
