I knew from his book Search Engine Marketing Inc. that Mike was a Web marketing guru, but he is also a great communicator. Mike's presentation at our Sales and Marketing Annual Symposium was acclaimed by all the participants. His step-by-step approach is truly one of the best marketing program I've seen. I recommend it to any companies who wish to analyse their processes and take the right actions!

Nicole Martel, Organizer Le Big Bang in Quebec

Mike is a really experienced and inspiring speaker, who always facilitates high-quality contact with the audience. I give Mike Moran the highest recommendations. Mike is a truly inspiring person with great abilities to communicate to a wide audience.

Morten Kamper, Business Manager FDIM, the Danish e-Business Society

Having attended many hundreds of conferences, I've heard countless presenters. Of them, Mike Moran stands above the rest. With his wit and enthusiasm, he totally captures the audience. But when it comes to the content, this is where he REALLY delivers. I had the pleasure of working with Mike chairing a series of conferences for the American Marketing Association. He was a top-rated speaker and I would invite him back in a heartbeat.

Stephan Spencer, Founder NetConcepts

Our company serves a rather narrow vertical market—the transportation services sector—and our decision to invite Mike Moran to participate in our annual User Group event as a featured speaker was a testimony to the broad reach and relevancy of his messages about digital marketing in the New Economy. Even our trucking industry, notable for including so many technology laggards, produced rapt audience members for Mike's talks. His reputation for thought-provoking content was widely acknowledged in conversations with our event attendees. I personally excused myself from other event management duties to sit in on Mike's two sessions. They were the highlight of the event for me and I was able to take back valuable ideas and even more valuable attitude adjustments that re-energized my own strategic marketing outlook.

Monica Truelsch, Director of Marketing TMW Systems

Poised and articulate, Mike Moran knows how to deliver information and move an audience. In an engaging training session on SEO strategies, Mike delivered an amazing presentation to our attendees, the majority of which are top-level executives in the ticketing and live entertainment industry. As executive director of the event, I appreciated Mike's level of professionalism and thorough preparation, so as to tailor the presentation to the needs of our attendees. His session in particular was rated among the top events of the conference. I would highly recommend Mike as a guest speaker to any event or organization looking to learn about marketing strategies and get that edge to succeed.

Molly A. Merez, Ph.D., Executive Director Ticket Summit

Your content marketing session has proven really valuable. Scott's lawn products have come up more than once since you joined us via Skype, and the concepts of consuming content in new ways are pervasive. Thank you so much for your time & meaningful contribution. The students always learn a lot from you. You're a great asset to Darden.

Meghan Murray, Adjunct Lecturer University of Virginia Darden School of Business

Don't know if you recall speaking to my Internet Marketing class at NYU in spring 2006, but I sure do. You were the single best speaker to address my [class] that year (maybe even during the 17 years I taught there). I remember you preaching white hat SEO techniques, my students being mesmerized by your talk. And the generosity you showed with your knowledge, agreeing to stay with us (at my students' request!) an extra 15 minutes to expand the Q&A portion. (These were students who used to run for the door the moment the minute hand pointed to their official "go" time!)

Mark Levit, Professor of Advertising and Former Professor of Marketing University of Miami and New York University

Mike was an exceptional presenter on Digital Marketing for the Rutgers Business School program "Mini-MBA for Dentists." He did his homework on the target audience and presented customized marketing content that was particularly relevant to them. Each and every participant gave him a rating of "Excellent" in their overall evaluation of his presentation. Mike is knowledgeable, inspirational, and personable. Rutgers is fortunate to have him on its faculty, and I would highly recommend him for other assignments.

Leon Fraser, Managing Director Executive Education

We recently invited Mike to teach a workshop on Content Marketing and Implementing a Winning Program at our SES New York event and we were really happy with this new course. Mike was easy to work with, professional and delivered fantastic content that more than met the expectations of our attendees – I wouldn't hesitate to work with Mike again.

Laura Roth, Senior Conference Manager SESand ClickZ

Mike Moran generated so much energy in the room as he delivered his pitch on Digital Marketing to my team of Services Sales and Technology experts that the room became noticeably warmer. His passion and delivery on the subject created emotional extremes…anxiety (I'm late/we're late!) to elation (This guy really gets it and now I do too!). I highly recommend listening to Mike on this topic he so thoroughly commands.
