Hi, I'm Dave Delaney.
My goal is to teach your audience how to network effectively.
When your attendees are actively networking, they have better experiences. I will bring your attendees out of their shells, so they make new connections and follow up the right way after your conference. Networking leads to new opportunities, which are attributed to your conference.
My keynote presentation, New Business Networking, includes humorous and inspiring stories to encourage the audience to make new connections. I provide them with the skills to break the ice, remember names, and how to listen effectively. I include social media tools and tips, so the conversations will continue after the event.
Worked in marketing for nearly two decades.
Graduate from Second City, Toronto. Performed weekly improv comedy.
Consultant in digital marketing and social media marketing.
Author of New Business Networking.
