  24. “When we looked for a voice of inspiration on the power of innovation for our annual, global team meeting, Rohit was the natural choice. There are few speakers that deliver not only a vision for the future that are as clear as his, but the method to develop your own version of the same.” - DOUG BUSK, COCA-COLA "When we asked Rohit to create a custom keynote and training video to teach our team about digital, we expected it to be educational. What Rohit managed to deliver blew us away! His content and style makes digital and social media approachable. His non-obvious trends were perfectly customized for the insurance industry and his content and delivery received rave reviews from our entire team.” – KAUSHAL SHROFF, PRUDENTIAL “After a long day for our attendees, I was originally reluctant to have a post dinner address to our marketing executives. However, Rohit’s content and delivery had all of us hanging on his every word. He somehow feels the mood of the audience and tailors his message accordingly. This is not the first time we’ve used him, nor will it be the last.” - BOB HOUSTON, RICHMOND EVENTS WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING …
  25. Rohit Bhargava is a master at weaving stories together on stage, taking the audience on a journey, all the while, teaching them about real marketing and business tactics." - JEN CONSALVO, TECH COCKTAIL “Rohit’s presentation was one of the most successful in our history.” – MATT ROSS, AMERICAN MARKETING ASSOCIATION "The best general session I have ever attended. Far too often speakers pontificate or entertain … I feel like I'll actually use things I learned." - ATTENDEE, ASAE MARKETING CONFERENCE “The knowledge he holds in his head is like gold dust for any one trying to create a credible digital marketing strategy. In 30 minutes, he taught PRWeek more about how information is disseminated on the internet than most people learn in a decade of being a web consumer.” – ALEX BLACK, PRWEEK UK A FEW MORE TESTIMONIALS …
  26. “This marketing panel is the best SXSW one yet. Like a kickass college class you can’t wait to go to. Rohit is like a Social Media Robin Williams." - @LAURENCOOK, SOCIAL STORYTELLER + DIGITAL STRATEGIST "I've enjoyed hearing Rohit speak many times over the years. I am regularly impressed at just how different and customized every one of his talks are." - JILL FOSTER, PUBLIC SPEAKER AND BLOGGER “Rohit took the time to understand his audience and this was KEY! He also invested time AFTER the session to thank those who tweeted. Class act!" – ATTENDEE SURVEY FEEDBACK, ASAE MARKETING CONFERENCE “Rohit is a dynamic speaker, bursting with knowledge and examples about content creation/curation and the business value of likeability. He was one of the Vocus Demand Success Conference favorites.” – BRINDISI CHAN, MARKETING MANAGER AT VOCUS NOT ENOUGH? HERE ARE A FEW MORE …

  31. I don’t believe in telling stories through stock photographs. Instead I always try to curate powerful visuals which share a point of view. To illustrate what I mean, here’s a short guide to some of the images used in this presentation – and the stories behind them … BACKSTORY: WHY THESE IMAGES MATTER … Can Headshots Be Human? This headshot is the one that I use to illustrate my personality – approachable, happy, and always ready to lean casually against random inanimate objects. Lego Guys … I am fond of using Lego guys to illustrate personality and use one for my Twitter bio as well. I love the contrast of these two! Seeing Patterns Everywhere … My brother is a Research Scientist at MIT Media Lab and I saw these brushes in his lab and couldn’t resist taking the photo. Following A Full Chorus … This shot is from a keynote for a large hospital system where I took the stage just after their employee chorus performed. Being Big In Norway … I love the lighting and stage colors from this keynote, my third in Oslo in less than a year. Does that mean I’m big in Norway?  The Obligatory TEDx Shot … Yes, I have done two TEDx talks, and I gratuitously use the image over and over – but can you blame me? You would too. Multi-directional Speaking … This Amsterdam event was my first with an audience watching in a 360 degree arrangement. Fun, but also challenging. The Unplanned Keynote … This was an impromptu talk to replace a missing speaker. No slides, no prep, just unscripted stories, an empty stage and me revealing the real reason I moved to Australia. Inspiration from history … I love the story of the QWERTY keyboard and cherish those chances to offer new perspectives from history. Talking To No One … I thrive on the energy of a live audience – but being in the recording studio is also helping me learn to bring energy on demand, and share my ideas in new ways.
