WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…
“Rohit’s presentation was one of the most successful in our chapter’s history … his presentation drew rave reviews for delivering real content in an entertaining and easily accessible style.”
– Matt Ross, American Marketing Association
“After a long day for our attendees, I was originally reluctant to have a post dinner address to our marketing executives. However, Rohit’s content and delivery had us hanging on his every word. He somehow feels the mood of the audience and tailors his message accordingly. This is not the first time we have used him, nor will it be the last.”
– Bob Houston, Richmond Events
“The best general session I have ever attended. Enjoyed the specific examples he gave. Far too often speakers pontificate or entertain, which is fun at the time, but then you don’t really use it afterward. I feel like I’ll actually use the things I learned from this session.”
– Attendee survey feedback, Association Marketing Conference
“Rohit’s ability to simplify and portray marketing tactics that any marketer can implement resonated with our audience, as shown by the number of live social posts during his session. Not only is he credible, but he’s also practical and authentic.”
– Stacey Miller, Manager at Vocus
“Rohit’s blog is intellectual and educational.”
– Wall Street Journal
“Rohit Bhargava is a master at weaving stories together on stage, taking the audience on a journey, all the while, teaching them about real marketing and business tactics. We’ve worked with Rohit many times and love having him speak at our events.”
– Jen Consalvo, Tech Cocktail
“Over and above being a fantastic speaker, booking Rohit also means you get a partner. Most speakers sign the contract and then perform. Rohit went over and above to help market his keynote, deepen attendee engagement and generate opportunities to build off his speaking engagement. On-stage he is mesmerizing as he guides the audience through trends in modern marketing drawing on his experience as an agency executive and working with 100s of brands.
– Paul Treanor, ad:tech
“Rohit’s talk was beautiful, validating, uplifting and contained so much truth. It was one of the best keynote presentations I have ever seen.”
– Attendee Feedback, SSATB Annual Conference
