Here is a recent four-word testimonial, that Scott aims for every talk:

“Best. Opening. Speaker. Ever.” – National Arts Marketing Conference Attendee

This is the talk she was referring to (2 minute video clip):

In the past few years, Scott has keynoted conferences non-stop around the world on the topics of engagement, social media and UnMarketing. B2B, B2C, Government, Non-Profit, Associations, from tech audiences in New Delhi, India to tourism pros in the Yukon. From clients like PepsiCo, Cirque du Soleil, Saks Fifth Avenue to the Red Cross, his job is to engage, inspire and help focus your audience towards better business. However, anyone can write a speaking bio (main bio here). We thought it would be best if it was written by people who have booked Scott to speak instead (to see more and full testimonials, go here):


“I have been attending these conferences since 1980…..you were the BEST ever!” Jackie Collier, Executive Director




“Scott spoke on the final day of our Annual Sales Meeting, in front of 1200 employees. We knew that the audience would be tired and less receptive than they were on day one! Scott’s high energy and hilarious presentation was exactly what was needed – his unique brand of definitely relevant content and delightfully irreverent delivery resulted in the attendees highest feedback score for any presenter over the four-day period.” Ian MacDonald – Senior Vice President – AutoTrader


These were tweeted at the same time, unsolicited, after a recent talk:


“For over an hour, Scott enlightened and entertained a very jaded group on the changing landscape of social media with insightful and  humorous examples of brand initiatives.  Of all the conference speakers, Scott ranked the highest in delivering content and keeping our audience engaged.  I’d highly recommend Scott as a potential keynote.” – Kevin Kirby, Senior Director-Worldwide Sales, Hard Rock International


“An eye-opener of why, and how, we need to start shifting our marketing weight from the broadcast leg to the dialogue leg. And it doesn’t hurt one bit that he made it the funniest and most entertaining presentation we all sat through all year.Tom Moradpour, PepsiCo, International Marketing Director, Pepsi


As another sampling, here is a recent conference keynote, from the Direct Marketing Association event in Las Vegas:


“Scott Stratten was second day keynote of our conference in New Orleans – not an easy task for sure! He blew everyone away with his amazing energy, fun examples and expert insights. Scott had everyone laughing, clapping enthusiastic…in many ways he set the tone for our entire conference. – Bertil Snel, Global Director Partner Marketing, Adobe Systems


Scott was one of the most well received speakers we have ever had.  Not only was he engaging, but also informative.  Delegates were able to walk away with valuable and usable information.  People are already asking us to have him back again next year. He really was, as one delegate wrote, “FABULOUS”.” -  Rachel Cleland, Association Manager of Marketing Association for Credit Unions (MACU).


“Here’s what makes Scott Stratten different and awesome: he’s a conference keynote speaker, yet he’ll arrive a day early and mingle with attendees in the exhibit hall. Just because. He’ll decide to engage in a live Google Hangout that marries a live audience with an Internet audience — because he knows the value it has to attendees. He’ll show up and deliver an amazing talk that has our attendees literally laughing so hard they hurt; yet learning so much they can’t wait to act on it all. And after all of that, he’ll still rush out to the lobby to shake hands, take pictures and actually practice what he’s preaching. Engagement isn’t just something Scott writes or talks about: it’s something the man actually lives. Period. His ability to walk the talk — not just talk — puts him on an entirely different and awesome level. We were honored to have him participate at REX 2013!” – Paul Jackson, CEO, HW Publishing LLC



Some of the sessions that are available for your event:

UnMarketing: Stop Marketing, Start Engaging – No one likes cold calls at dinnertime, junk mail overflowing your mailbox, and advertisements that interrupt your favorite shows. If this is “marketing,” then the world would probably prefer whatever is the opposite of that.

If you’re ready to stop marketing and start engaging, then welcome to UnMarketing. The landscape of business-customer relationships is changing, and UnMarketing gives you innovative ways out of the old “Push and Pray” rut. Instead, draw the right customers to you through listening and engagement, enabling you to build trust and position yourself as their logical choice when they need you.

The Business Of Awesome (and UnAwesome) – This talk from his book covers key business concepts related to marketing, branding, public relations, social media, human resources and customer service. It’s about the authentic touch, and the ability to connect technology with engagement to the level of Awesome. It includes case studies of successful businesses that gained exposure through being awesome and effective. This talk provides actionable tools enabling audience members to apply the concepts immediately to their own businesses. The flip side The Business Of UnAwesome, shares the train-wreck stories of unsuccessful businesses and showcases what not to do.
