"We are incredibly grateful for the time and knowledge and experience that you shared with us. We are excited to implement the straightforward action steps you outlined for us!

- Jennifer Carey and Dayna Wood, Co-Founders, ic3 consulting
"Working with Steve Markman allowed me to take a good look at my speaking business – in particular, how to best monetize my expertise-small business marketing and PR. Before we even met, Steve researched my brand and visibility as a speaker. At our first in-person session, he provided feedback on my speaker's kit, signature talks, and strategies on how to target speaking gigs best suited for my goals – along with a list of contacts I should be in touch with. What I loved was that he understood my business model from the get-go and provided a clear roadmap on next steps, including follow-up."
It's obvious that Steve is not only a top consultant in the speaking industry, but someone who wants you to succeed. He builds relationships, not just a client base. For this and hundreds of other reasons, I'd recommend working with Steve and his speaking agency to build, tweak and get exposure on stage."
-Robin Samora, small business marketing consultant, author, and member, National Speakers Association
"My goal was to increase the reach of my consulting practice outside of New England at a time when the market here was slow. I had been speaking at local events for several years, but was really interested in being on the national stage. Steve quickly got up to speed on my expertise, helped me pull together speaker abstracts and got right down to work. The results have been phenomenal! I have landed some great customers, and have achieved my goal of expanding nationally. I highly recommend Steve for organizations who want to put key executives on the national stage. He can take your executives and make thought-leaders of them."
-Lisa Dennis, President and Founder, Knowledgence Associates and author of the book "Value Propositions that SELL"
"Steve has an incredible depth of experience and knowledge of the conference world. He also has many valuable contacts that greatly add to the success of a speaking program. During the time we worked with Steve, he helped us to triple our conference speaking engagements and break into new shows. His genuine and positive personality, and professionalism make him a true pleasure to work with."
-Kathleen Gambale, Marketing Manager, Extreme Bolt and Fastener
"Steve knows how to put you into conferences. Has decades of experience doing this well. At IBM, I relied on Steve to place speakers at business conferences relevant to our work. He knows how to find the "right conferences" and how to persuade organizers to include speakers he is assisting. He takes the initiative to match both well."
-Jim Cortada, Senior Research Fellow, University of Minnesota, and former executive, IBM Global Services
