Speaking testimonials 2012-13
Principal Lecturer in Digital Marketing & Enterprise at Manchester Metropolitan University
“René is a powerful public communicator who really knows his onions. He is a highly engaging profesional and has clear, concise, easy to understand approach to sharing knowledge and best practice. His ensures he is able to engage directly with his audience and manage them on their terms. Always wel-prepared and knowledgable as a result. Superb!”
“Rene spoke at our B2B Marketing Summit event and was absolutely brilliant. Not only did he provide his content before the deadline (which is unheard of!), it was of a very high quality and many delegates singled him out for praise when feeding back about the event. Rene’s knowledge of b2b marketing is second to none and his breadth of knowledge does not go unnoticed by any who hear him speak. A joy to work with!”
Marketing Manager OnlyMarketingJobs.com & UKMarketingNetwork.co.uk
“We’ve had the privilege of René agreeing to speak at two of our digital marketing conferences as well as chairing one of these conferences. Not only was his presentation detailed and inspiring, he was a fantastic chair who helped run the event smoothly. His involvement for both post and pre-event marketing was superb, putting in a huge amount of time and effort. We are looking forward to René’s involvement in our events this year”.
“We’ve been lucky enough to have René speak at two of our marketing conferences throughout 2012. Not only is he an expert with in-depth knowledge of B2B Marketing, but his personable, professional attitude made it an absolute pleasure to work with him. René’s enthusiasm for our conferences throughout the whole concept is incredible and not only did he agree to speak at our conferences, but also made a commanding conference Chair.
If the above does not recommend René highly enough, we’ve also asked him to Chair our conferences in 2013. Surely that speaks for itself!”
External Affairs and Communications Director – PR, Marketing, Int comms
“I know René Power personally and professionally. I have seen him present on B2B digital engagement where he and his organisation are at the forefront of encouraging more businesses to embrace social media to grow their products and companies. He makes a powerful (no pun intended!) case for the growing impact of B2B social media usage, backed up by strong case studies and a focus on measurement and evaluation.”
“Having listened to Rene speak in recent North West based discussion forums, I can say that he has the much sought after ability to connect with his audience on a meaningful level. He clearly has an absolute passion for his subject and this is evident in his delivery. I have seen him speak often and will attend seminars or industry evenings purely on the basis that Rene is in attendance.”
“Very happy to recommend Rene on the basis of his depth of expertise in digital marketing and social media. I can equally endorse his work and value as an expert and visiting speaker for undergraduate/postgraduate students on marketing and business programmes. Look forward to working with him again in the future.”
“Rene is leading the way in digital marketing and social media for business. He has been a champion for giving back and sharing his expertise and knowledge to students at University both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Hope to do a lot more work with him in the future!”
