WATCH ANN IN ACTION
Welcome, meeting planners and event organizers!
This page is for you.
Ann Handley is a Wall Street Journal best-selling author who speaks worldwide about how businesses can escape marketing mediocrity to ignite tangible results.
She is the Chief Content Officer of MarketingProfs, provider of immersive modern marketing training and education.
Ann Handley “gets it” because she isn’t just a speaker, she’s also an event producer: The annual MarketingProfs B2B Forum attracts 1,000 marketers annually.
- She understands that you want your speakers to be responsive to your audience’s specific pain points and unique challenges.
- She values the role live events play in making your brand or organization important to your customers.
- She knows that you want someone who will inspire—but also teach with real-world ideas and examples. (You don’t want them walking away with the vague unease of “What now?”)
- And she knows you need someone who will affiliate and empathize with your audience to make them laugh and to make them think—to both motivate and activate.
- She is prompt and responsive, she is not a diva, and she aims to make your job as effortless and stress-free as possible.
