Selecting a keynote speaker for your event isn’t easy. We get that. Which is why we have a core promise to our customers here at MSI:
The Audience is Everything
The Audience is Everything means every message, every presentation, and every question is designed with the audience in mind. The fact is, any speaker can get a laugh out of an audience. Many may inspire. But few induce true and lasting action, takeaways, and results. This is what makes us unique.
“People were raving and saying that it was by far the best conference and meeting that they have ever attended and it was a real game changer in terms of inspiring them…”
Shoshana Price, Sr. Digital Marketing Manager, Whirlpool Corporation
Today’s audience members need more than just a lecture. They must be engaged, challenged, and inspired. They need to feel like the speaker knows them, their industry, and their struggles.
Marcus Sheridan’s one of a kind speaking style consists of the following:
Marcus’ style is to tell the audience exactly what they need to hear in a simple, memorable, and easily understood style that everyone can put their arms around (i.e. They Ask, You Answer).
Powerful Interactions with Audience Members
Marcus’ style is one of the most unique on the professional speaking circuit. Instead of simply speaking from the stage he often walks into the audience, calls participants by name, and asks questions. It is in these interactions that some of the most memorable moments occur. It is also because of this style that event professionals often make the comment, “I can’t believe no one looked down at their phone while you spoke!”
Electric, Sincere Energy
Marcus has boundless energy onstage. It is a genuine byproduct of how the principles he teaches have had such a dramatic impact on his life.
Roller Coaster of Audience Emotions
As the great speaker Jim Rohn once said, “Take me high, take me low, but take me.” Audiences want and need to experience a range of emotions during a keynote. So, whether it’s laugh-out-loud humor or emotional reflections, audiences will take a ride when Marcus is on stage.
“He was the most talked and tweeted
about speaker for the day and left the
audience buzzing for more. His ability to
captivate an audience is truly remarkable…”
Pat Lemieux, Events Producer

The Future of Sales and Marketing: How To Eliminate Silos and Get Incredible Results
For years, businesses and brands have been able to get by with a massive silo effect existing between sales and marketing departments. But today, times have changed, and because marketing teams have such a significant impact on the buying process, companies must do whatever it takes to eliminate these silos and leverage both departments to engage today’s digital consumer and get the results they’re looking for. In this talk, Marcus Sheridan shows exactly how other companies, in diverse industries, have managed to eliminate these silos, ultimately having a major impact on the company brand, business, and bottom line. In this talk, attendees will better understand the critical link between sales and marketing departments in the digital age, learn how sales professionals can inject themselves earlier in the buying process and therefore “come to the table” with more built-in trust with the buyer, and see the dramatic impact great content can have on sales cycles and closing rates, and how to effectively integrate this content into the sales process.
The Business of Trust
With the information age in full swing, brands can no longer expect traditional methods to win customer interest and loyalty. One of the essential keys to gaining the trust of today’s digital consumer is by becoming their go-to source for helpful information. The businesses and brands that can do this better than anyone in their space can, literally, become the Wikipedia of their industry and ultimately gain the consumer’s trust AND an incredible amount of market-share in the process. In this talk, attendees will discover just how much buying habits have changed and why “name recognition” is no longer enough, learn the types of transparent and honest content that move consumers to not only notice a brand but to switch to new ones as well, and find out exactly what must be done to become the “voice of trust” in your space.
