“Brian is an outstanding social media expert who has helped us shape and grow our organization’s online presence. His creative thinking has helped keep us one step ahead of our competition, and his unique style of delivery was well received while educating our business owners during our annual franchise meeting. He is one of a kind!”
“Brian Carter was our keynote speaker at the Lighting One annual convention and focused on digital marketing and social media. He was very on point, knowledgeable, educational AND entertaining. This audience of showroom owners and managers are generally not marketing savvy and certainly not digital and social savvy. He masterfully presented the topic to an audience in an easy to understand and digestible way with a great deal of solid takeaways. I have heard nothing but extremely positive comments from the attendees.”
“Brian not only knows his stuff… he’s also one of the funniest speakers I’ve ever seen.”
“Phenomenal speaker. Personable, informative and downright entertaining. I’d hire him back in a second.”
“People should be listening to Brian Carter! I got more out of Brian’s keynote presentation at a recent conference I attended than all the other sessions. Knowledgeable and FUN, he provides actionable takeaways that I can use immediately for better results. And the best part was my CFO was in attendance and Brian was able to convince him too. It says a lot if you can get a numbers man on board with marketing strategies. Kudos, Brian, I will be following you on social media.”
