I will walk you through the steps to creating and launching a successful podcast. I have been podcasting since 2005. I host New Business Networking Radio at NBNRadio.com.
My blog, book, and podcast are all about business networking. I consult my clients on how to use online (social media, email, blogging, research, CRM) with offline techniques (listening effectively, business card techniques, ice-breakers, event planning and attending) to build long-lasting relationships and strong business networks. This leads to advancing your career, landing new sales, and creating strategic partnerships.
I will walk you through how to search and find the key people you need to connect with to advance your career and how to reach out. I'll share tips on how to build relationships and network your way to a new job.
I want to help you optimize your LinkedIn profile and develop a plan to get that job, new client or network your way to become an industry authority on LinkedIn.
I was LinkedIn's keynote speaker at the LinkedIn Live Conference in Nashville. I run a consultancy called Futureforth.com that specializes in LinkedIn training.
Let me help you today.
Dave is Nashville's "Mr. Twitter". Want to know how to use twitter to benefit your business? Follow Dave. Want to know how to successfully connect with people and put your finger on the lifepulse of the internet? Follow Dave. Want to network with other people in Nashville (and beyond) who are interested in the same things? Dave knows people.
If you want to be successful, make sure Dave is in your entourage.
Dave was an excellent promoter at the Star. Always very creative with strong technical skills that helped him liaise effectively with many different departments. Would work with him again in a heartbeat.
Dave was asked to speak at our Nashville VMware User Group conference because we are looking to add a "Personal Growth" element to our full day technology focused conferences. Dave delivered on this and the attendees saw great value in his message. It was a truly refreshing engagement, and a great start to the day!
Dave did a fantastic job speaking at the NTC's LinkedIn Live event. His insights on how to use LinkedIn to network, grow your brand and drive results were perfect for the audience and attendees. His investment in starting events over the last 10 years makes him a true leader to the Nashville creative community.
Dave is exactly the kind of guy you want at a conference. As a conference organizer my job was to find and recruit top tier talent that would make the event a success. Dave came to BOLO prepped and ready to rock...and rock he did. He was rated as one of our very top presenters. The attendees were buzzing after his session. I can't thank him enough for the actionable advice and his fantastic energy before, during, and after the conference.
Dave Delaney was the speaker for a career event held by the Department of Management and Marketing in the Jones College of Business at Middle Tennessee State University. Dave spoke on the importance of building a professional network. He captivated an audience of more than 150 students for 45 minutes with networking tips as well as providing info on numerous resources (e.g., apps and websites) that students should check out and consider using.
Dave’s presentation style was very engaging, using a nice blend of visuals, humor, and examples to which the audience could relate. Another observation of his presentation shared with me by a colleague was that Dave included several calls to action for the audience in his presentation. He did not simply lecture or talk about networking; he challenged the audience to use the techniques he presented.
Perhaps the most telling indicator of the impact of Dave Delaney’s presentation on our students was the post-event feedback. Faculty heard several positive comments from students in attendance. Also, a student who I did not know stopped me in the hallway the next day (she recognized me from introducing Dave before he spoke). She told me how much she enjoyed Dave’s presentation. Dave’s expertise coupled with delivery style makes him an effective speaker. We would love to have him return to speak to our students in the future.
Dave Delaney has been an excellent asset to TechnologyAdvice's digital marketing efforts. Not only is he an all-around pleasant person to work with, but his expertise and recommendations have helped us achieve significant and measurable results for our brand. Our team has a lot of respect for Dave, and no one here would hesitate to recommend him to any other company looking to improve their online marketing efforts!
Dave spoke on "Networking Techniques for the Digital Age" for the Association of Talent Development in Nashville. There were 50 or so people in the audience. He received an extremely enthusiastic response, both in person and on the surveys that we distributed after the event. The most common themes mentioned in the feedback were -
• His in-depth knowledge & unique insight on ways that technology can be used to form strong professional connections with the right people.
• His ability to discuss this subject with an audience that contained a wide range of interests & abilities regarding technology & communication tools.
• His sincere, honest approach to forming those connections (i.e "Don't connect with everyone, just connect with people when it make sense to do so...and see if you can help them before you focus on how they may be able to help you)
I would love to have him back or see him speak at another event!
VP of Programs
I contacted Dave to do a “360” review on improving the emails I send to my list, specifically improving metrics such as open rates, click rates, and sales to my store. Dave did all this and more.
Dave helped me with implementing best practices, including making my emails more mobile-friendly, using templates, and optimizing the timing of my emails. He was also extremely helpful in suggesting useful plugins and software to help me learn more about my audience and to help generate more leads.
In addition, as countless Nashvillians can attest, Dave is extremely easy to talk to and has excellent networking skills. He has been helpful in directing me to other individuals in our community that I can reach out to for assistance with other areas of my business that need improvement. If you are looking for someone to help you improve your email marketing, I highly recommend working with Dave!
It was so great to work with Dave for MoSo 2014. Our attendees had wonderful things to say about Dave's session and it was great to see him stick around and enjoy the rest of MoSo. We would definitely be keen to invite him to speak again in the future!
Dave spoke to over 1,200 college students at the 36th annual American Marketing Association's International Collegiate Conference in April 2014. Keeping the attention of college students is a very hard task -- let alone keeping the attention of 1,200 students. However, Dave did just that. His talk on "Your Network is More Important Than Your Resume" was perfect for the audience. Clearly, Dave is an expert in his field and was a great asset to our students at the conference. I recommend him for other speaking events!
