Client reviews

  • Darrell Keezer is a dynamic, engaging speaker and we felt very fortunate to have him on stage for our event. His keynote presentation “Becoming Digitally Disruptive” was rated “very good to excellent.” The material resonated with our audience of real estate agents, many of whom are looking for expert advice on how to build their own successful digital plan. Darrell provided clear tips and actionable suggestions on how to do just that.

  • With our conference theme focused on engaging and developing young talent, Darrell hit the mark with his lively presentation and informative content. Darrell is an outstanding speaker and has the ability to deliver a message synchronized with our theme.

  • Darrell always engages our audiences and leaves them wanting more. He has helped us draw crowds to our conferences and we’ve implemented his strategies leading to a 600% revenue increase over our old digital presence.

  • Each time Darrell speaks for us, he “wows” the audience and leaves them wanting more. The one thing Darrell and I disagree on is how much paper should be on a person’s desk. My answer is “tons” and his answer is “none”.

  • Darrell is an energetic, authentic speaker who shared his expertise while engaging the whole room! I recommend him for a variety of topics!

  • Darrell delivers valuable insights and relevant content in a manner that is engaging, thought provoking and entertaining. Most importantly, his advice is both practical and actionable.
