Testimonials

Keith spoke to a group comprised of the top talent across Deutsche Bank from VPs and directors to mid level executives, discussing the importance of building relationships to engender personal and professional growth. In a short period of time, he provided these folks with the tool sets needed to cultivate and expand their current network relationships along with strategies enabling them to build new meaningful and personable relationships. Success from a corporate standpoint hinges on the efficacy and ability to communicate both within and across all departments. I think Keith was instrumental in addressing our goals as a corporation and we'd love to have him back in the future.
- Director of OD Culture and Global Diversity, Nisha Rao, Deutsche Bank

There are few people that understand the power of building relationships the way Keith Ferrazzi does. His ability to get the crowd to interact and build such intimate relationships during his talk is some of the most powerful skills I've seen in a speaker in my many years as a speaker, myself. [You] really hit this one out of the park!
- Founder & President, Todd Duncan, Sales Mastery & The Duncan Group

Keith's methodologies can be used as a roadmap for success in our business. His understanding of the power of relationships and how they can impact our lives both professionally and personally was a real winner at our annual conference!
- SVP, Market Access & Business Development, anofi-aventis

Keith was the perfect opening keynote speaker at our conference. His energy woke up the room and got the Summit off to a sizzling start. You could see the audience perk up and hang on Keith's every word. His anecdotes from his years as chief marketing officer really resonated with this particular audience. People were inspired and energized by Keith's presentation. In fact, I had several attendees ask for Keith's contact information to secure him for their future sales and marketing meetings. In a day which also featured keynotes from Mark Cuban and CNN's Anderson Cooper, Keith was the conference's most talked about speaker.
- Chairman of the Board/Senior Vice President, Marty Shapiro, CNN International, International Advertising Association (IAA)

Keith Ferrazzi is not a typical keynote speaker. He began his presentation off stage, down in the middle aisle near the audience, speaking directly to the attendees. Keith was engaging, candid and inspiring. Choosing him as our speaker for this first time event was an excellent decision that created a buzz during and after the event. Keith challenged attendees to go beyond networking, stop focusing on themselves and get out there and create meaningful relationships that will help take their business and personal life to the next level.
- Chief Operations Officer, Tammy J. Carnrike, Detroit Regional Chamber

Keith was a home run - I have heard nothing but rave reviews from our attendees. His message was perfect for our ERA brand and pertinent to all.
- -Vice President of Operations, Stephanie Reyna, ERA Real Estate

I have never seen a speaker put so much energy and so much heart into the role. By the end of a two-day conference not only did we all know Keith but we also knew each other better because of his coaching and coaxing on personal relationship building while at the event.
- President & CEO, Tom Kelley, IDEO
