With one third of companies already on the road toward digital transformation and an additional third planning to start the process in the coming year, digital strategy has become the hot topic in boardrooms around the globe and digital leadership the must-have competency for executives serious about leading their organizations into the future.

Let business futurist, marketing strategist and digital transformation expert Greg Verdino open your audience’s eyes to the ways in which digital is remaking markets, reimagining industries and reinventing companies.  He is a popular speaker who delivers high energy, thought provoking (and some may even say challenging) presentations loaded with actionable insights and practical ideas that any business person can use to excel at digital today and thrive as digital tomorrow.

When you hire Greg to ‘talk transformation’ at your conference or company meeting, you don’t just get a great presenter — you get a practitioner. A world class digital marketing expert and recognized digital transformation thought leader who, unlike many keynoters on the circuit, does more than just “talk the talk.”

Over the course of his 25 year career, he has advised more than 50 of the Fortune 500; led one of the world’s first social media marketing agencies; headed the strategy team at a global social business consultancy; and has held senior leadership positions within a half-dozen scrappy technology startups. Today, he is an in-demand consultant who helps business leaders build thriving 21st century organizations by embracing digital change, creating new digital opportunities, and formulating bold digital strategies for transformational growth.

His ideas have appeared in dozens of mainstream media outlets including Bloomberg BusinessWeek, CNBC, Cablevision News12, Fox Business News, Investors Business Daily, Newsday and the Wall Street Journal. And his acclaimed book microMARKETING: Get Big Results By Thinking and Acting Small taught marketers that mattering a lot to the right people trumps marketing a little to everyone.

Greg’s speeches entertain and inspire. But more importantly they deliver fresh, bold ideas and practical, actionable takeaways that attendees can apply to create exciting digital futures for their businesses and themselves.

Each customized keynote combines up-to-the-moment insights about digital’s transformative effects on leadership, culture, marketing, customer experience, and innovation with vivid, industry-relevant examples that ‘speak your audience’s language.’ Greg draws powerful connections between the accelerating pace of exponential change and the actions attendees can take to create exponential value for their companies, customers and careers.

“Thank you for the excellent presentation that you made earlier this week in Berlin. The feedback we are getting is fantastic… Your session has engaged the entire leadership team, encouraged thinking and enthused people to go away and implement (with focus)!”

  • Ben Forward / Sanofi Pasteur MSD

“At the 2013 Ohio Library Council Convention & Expo, Greg served as the keynote speaker for the highest traffic day – effectively the Convention’s lynchpin. So many of our attendees tweeted great comments like ‘mind blown,’ ‘awesome,’ ‘our board needs to hear this,’ and ‘what an engaging keynote!’ We were thrilled to have a speaker of Greg’s caliber to be part of our Convention, and I recommend him highly.”

  • Robyn Vittek / Ohio Library Council

“What made Greg such a delight is that he’s a natural storyteller. Nobody wanted to stop listening and leave when we came to the end of the session. There’s nothing more wonderful that listening to someone who has something important to say and can say it in a way that engages and entertains.”

  • Randall Ringer / New York AMA

“There are lots of people who can talk about what’s ‘cool’ and what’s ‘new,’ but Greg goes beyond the hype and gives you the nitty-gritty on what it means to you and your business. He’s smart, funny (and fun), easy to work with, and (most importantly for those of us who plan events) he delivers on his promise.”

  • Ann Handley / MarketingProfs

“Greg Verdino is exactly what you look for in a speaker. Scary smart yet humble. Relaxed yet completely prepared. Authoritative yet funny and accessible. Greg knows everything there is to know about where business is headed, and did a fantastic job of delivering interesting, meaningful and – most importantly – actionable information to an already well-informed audience.”

  • Len Herstein / Brand Managecamp
“Few speakers energize people in a way that makes them want to take action. Greg Verdino is one of those speakers.”
  •  Senior Manager / Halliburton
