A poised, high-energy presenter…

Jay Acunzo recently conducted a webinar for my MarketingProfs’ content marketing virtual conference. His session was titled Do the Unthinkable: Create a Never-Ending Supply of Quality Content. It was a very well received session on how to balance quality with quantity in the content marketing. Jay is a poised, high-energy presenter. This was a virtual event, but Jay made people feel as if he was in the room with them with his speaking style. He was a pleasure to work with – very responsive and timely in meeting deadlines. He’s also an all-around nice guy.

High-energy, entertaining speaker…

Jay’s presentation was perfect for our modern B2B marketing team. He put forethought in to understanding our team and creating a presentation to fit the context of our Marketing off-site. Jay is a high-energy, entertaining speaker that got our team thinking about new trends and tactics to incorporate in to our Marketing strategies. We could not be more pleased with the outcome and content today and would have Jay back in a heartbeat!

HUGE fan of what Jay presents

I am a HUGE fan of what Jay presents. His “ah ha moment” ideas are easy-to-understand and inspire action — and he always gets rave reviews. Even better, Jay’s sessions can always be repurposed into additional editorial so the knowledge keeps giving!

Vice President, Content / Content Marketing Institute

Catalyzed and captivated the audience…

A great speaker doesn’t just communicate a message, they inspire their audience to listen, take action, learn more. As a speaker, Jay has an incredible ability to relate to the audience and perform with impeccable polish. He is a seasoned speaker, and it shows. During his Unthinkable talk for Boston Content, Jay catalyzed and captivated the audience, weaving humor, inspiration and education to keep the audience on their toes and in rapt attention. As a host, I was particularly gratified with the reaction from the attendees, who stayed well past the end of the event to speak to him and have been contacting me personally to thank me since then.

He is a master

Jay was an engaging keynote speaker for our event. He is a master when it comes to using technology to connect with people on social media. His insights were eye-opening and actionable.

The keynote was so well received.

Everyone at the event and around our organization continues to reference several of Jay’s key takeaways in our work. We’ve even used the lessons when meeting with a larger client, a challenger brand looking to make a push for #1. The keynote was so well received.

Associate Director, Digital Strategy / Rise Interactive

Dynamic, Engaging, and Smart

Jay is a dynamic, engaging, and smart speaker who keeps the audience fascinated and wanting more. I invited Jay to speak at our CMO Confessions event, and he exceeded expectations! He delivered a clear message, included simple examples, and engaged the audience with great questions. The event sold out and the feedback was all 5 stars.
