Speaking Engagements

Keynote Speaker – Marketing and More

“Roger was an absolutely fantastic keynote speaker for our conference and provided the audience with excellent insights and creative thinking… Roger received exceptional feedback from the audience on his presentation with people describing it as “inspiring”, “exciting” and “a highlight of my day”. I would highly recommend Roger as a keynote speaker for any event.”
Amelia Gardner

Roger Dooley, author of Brainfluence and the popular blogs Brainy Marketing at Forbes and, on this site, Neuromarketing, speaks at marketing, sales, advertising, and market research conferences and other events where the audience wants to understand their customers, build stronger brands, and sell more effectively. (Focused on CX? Check out customer experience keynote speakers.)

“We got only positive feedback from all the attendees that we talked to…. Roger was very funny, very insightful and he perfectly set the tone for the rest of the conference.”
Benny Briesemeister
BCR Conference, Hamburg, Germany

A typical keynote is 45 to 60 minutes and is prepared specifically for the group to be addressed. Presentations usually include lively examples of commercials and their neuromarketing analysis. Executive briefings and workshops for smaller groups are also possible. The underlying theme of all engagements is to show the audience how to sell more while spending less by understanding how our brains work. References available.

“Roger provided a great experience for the audience and my team. He was the best speaker at the Summit, and gave a lot of practical advice. I was impressed by Roger’s in-depth knowledge of both neuromarketing and marketing in general.”
Tim Roemer
Managing Director – Scoot Media
Affiliate Day, The Netherlands

“Roger did a stellar job introducing our audience to the fascinating field of neuromarketing. He obviously knows his stuff and struck a perfect balance by making the topic interesting and accessible without sacrificing any credibility. He takes a very pragmatic approach to a topic that’s all-to-often over-hyped and sensationalized. I would highly recommend both the topic and the speaker for any conference or event touching on the intersection of science and marketing.”
Gord Hotchkiss
Programming Chair – Search Insider Summit

“He’s engaging and always presents some of the most interesting and out-of-the-box material I have heard in the web marketing space. As a speaker, author and friend, Roger is top notch.”
Laura Alter
Austin SEO Meetup

Austin Internet Marketing Party“Your Brain on Internet Marketing” July 13, 2010, Austin, TX

Roger’s insights were all right on. We can all easily grasp and apply almost every one of them in our daily work and not just in web / internet marketing. Ask me some time about how Roger Dooley and Peter Drucker may be operating in the same ozone.

Wow, I have been in sales, marketing, business development, and branding for 20 years, and the presentation last night totally opened my eyes to some new research. Fantastic and valuable. Excellent speaker!

Was such great information! Wish it was longer!

South by Southwest Interactive 2010 – Big Brother in Your Brain: Neuroscience & Marketing. Is interactive marketing art or science? With the advent of neuromarketing, neuroscientists and researchers direct their expertise to selling, using MRIs to analyze brain activity when exposed to different stimuli. Companies like Google use mathematics to develop advertising solutions. Will digital marketers become scientists and mathematicians or will creativity triumph? Saturday, March 13, 2010.
