Below are a list of presentions that Bryan can provide as keynotes, conference sessions, as well as workshops.

In Bryan’s “Redefining Human in a Machine-Driven Age” keynote, he explores what traits humans have that machines don’t, and how humans and machines can better work together to forge deeper connections and smarter business. This keynote is perfect for audiences that need to better understand what traits they innately have that can be used to stay relevant in their careers, as well as actionable takeaways about how to use these skills with technology to scale and delight customers.

According to research firm Collective Bias, consumers are 10x more influenced by the endorsement of a product by a non-celebrity blogger than a celebrity. Influencer Marketing is a hot topic for brands now, and the secret to running a scalable Influencer program for any brand, large or small, is micro Influencers – the niche subject matter experts who know a lot about what you’re selling, are passionate about it and are already highly influential with your customers. The trick is, how do you find the right people and get them to talk and share about your brand?In this keynote, Bryan shares his own learning from helping to build the first Influencer program at IBM, and being an Influencer himself for top brands like Dell, Cisco, and Salesforce. Your audience will get actionable takeaways to use in their own business, as Bryan breaks down the process and steps that brands should be taking to build a successful Influencer program within their own companies.

The business world has long referred to itself as either “B2B” or “B2C”. But Bryan Kramer argues that it’s humans who do business with humans – not companies – and in 2014, his “H2H Human to Human” movement inspired the business world to humanize the way they operate. And like companies, people have their own brands that reflect their reputation, their values and character. In today’s connected and social world, a personal brand is “career insurance” you can’t afford not to have.

People are realizing that to ensure their own job security, they need to get clear about why they do what they do, and be “self-marketers” of their own personal brand in order to stand out for what they stand for. In this information-packed talk, Bryan will walk you through why now is the time to have a strong personal brand to arm you against unforeseen changes in your business or position, how to define yourself clearly, and what tools and processes you can implement to climb your career ladder with more ease.

Join Bryan as your personal change agent and personal marketing consultant, and learn the steps to take control of how others see your most valuable asset – you.

Sharing has always been a fundamental human behavior that has been central to our survival as a human race. Sharing stories, processes, insights, philosophies, techniques, secrets; sharing is how we connect to each other and advance forward.Now with technologies like the Internet, video, social media and mobile, sharing has increased its ease and scale to a global level. Information is no longer confined to geographical boundaries; proximity is no longer required to pass information from one human to another.In this keynote, Bryan uses concepts and formulas crafted in his “USA Today Top 150” best-selling book with the same title to show how, as humans, we need to rethink how, what, why and where we share ideas to influence and affect the direction we want for our ourselves, our business and our global tribe.

60 million blog posts are published online each month. Over 90 million photos and videos are shared on Instagram each day. 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. As a brand, how do you stand out in this cluttered ocean of content?!In this keynote, Bryan will share the science behind how humans receive and engage with content online, and how you, as a brand, can increase your chances of creating content that your audience wants to see, share and engage with. Filled with statistics, examples and lots of humor, your audience will walk away with actionable insights they can apply to their own content creation.

Too many companies treat social media as if it’s a one-way conversation.They set up Twitter and Facebook accounts and then start pumping out updates.But if you aren’t listening to what your fans, customers, critics and competitors are saying, you’re missing the whole point of social media.The new economy is about engagement and for that, you have to listen. More importantly, there’s a real-time battle for understanding what’s in the head of your consumer right now.Bryan will discuss a specific set of steps for social listening in order to build an effective marketing strategy. Real world examples will include how listening can help drive better reach, product development, improved operations, shorter sales cycles and lead generation.

We’ve been trained to speak “business to business” (B2B) or “business to consumer”(B2C). But businesses and products do not have emotion. Humans do. In Human to Human Marketing (#H2H), Bryan explores why and how communication needs to be adjusted to exude simplicity, empathy and imperfection – in the same way humans are built.Through examples pulled from Bryan’s viral smash-hit first book “There’s No B2B or B2C: It’s Human-to-Human H2H” that birthed the H2H movement, and through entertaining stories from his own experiences, he delivers practical tools and steps you can use right now to connect with your customers, be smarter marketers, managers, and fellow members of the human race.

As a company or personal brand, much of your social interactions are public, so paying attention to your social “body language” – otherwise known as your collective image and behavior across the Internet – is critical. Remember… nothing EVER disappears from the Internet, so while there’s no way to control every perception, you can certainly guide it toward the direction that’s right for you… but only if you’re mindful about it now. Bryan will walk you through the practical steps to master your social body language:
  • How to identify your current and potential influencer network so you know who to tap into to share
  • How to develop a content curation strategy so you’re known for what you want to be known for
  • How to build your social listening strategy so you can monitor the social conversation
  • How to scale your time spent doing all of this without it overtaking your life
This keynote is also available as a half-day intensive workshop.
