Blogger, FLBlogCon 2015 attendee
I felt intimidated going into this session. I know nothing about podcasting. Enter Kerry to save the day. Within minutes I felt completely at ease. She clearly loves what she does and equally enjoys sharing the process with others. Her presentation was fun, interesting, and educational. She’s a very generous presenter. I left feeling like this was not only something I was more than capable of doing, but I absolutely should give it a go because…why not? As an aside, she’s also very responsive on Twitter. I had a question after the conference and she answered it quickly while also pointing me in the direction of another fantastic podcaster.
Strategist, Speaker, Educator & Author;
Chief Brand Strategist of Brand Driven Digital
Kerry O’Shea Gorgone was one of our keynotes at Social Brand Forum 2014. She’s a conference organizer’s dream as she actively takes the lead on learning about the event, the attendees, and how she can create a presentation designed to meet their needs. As both a legal expert and a marketer, Kerry offers the perfect blend of high-level insight and actionable advice. She presents all of this in an engaging and interactive way so that the audience laughs while they learn. And the attendee survey results proved this — Kerry was one of their favorite speakers!
Marketing consultant, college educator and author
When I was looking for a panel moderator, Kerry Gorgone was one of the first names that came to mind. She is witty, smart and personable. But as a conference organizer, I also needed somebody who was absolutely reliable, who would help guide her team to great content to make my event exceptional without a lot of supervision. That is a special skill and Kerry was definitely the right leader for the job!
President and Founder at Tenacity5 Media
Kerry moderated a panel for us on search and social at Vocus Demand Success 2013. But not only did she moderate it, she did so on short notice. Her work was fantastic and the crowd was engaged. Kerry is a very smart lady with chutzpah. I highly recommend her for your event!
Kerry was a featured speaker at the Florida Blogger & Social Media Conference 2013. She was asked to speak about legal ramifications dealing with blogging and social media, and she more than delivered. Not only did she make her presentation relevant, but she also made the difficult topic understandable by the majority of lay people in the audience of about 300 attendees.
As a presenter, she was prompt with speaker deadlines and helpful to the overall flow of the conference. She was also very well-received as her presentation was noted as a favorite or most beneficial on several blogger recaps. I look forward to working with Kerry again!
I recently invited Kerry to present at the IFIE–IOSCO Annual Investor Education conference. Speaking at the skills workshop, she highlighted her thoughts on and approach to content creation and delivery. Investor Education professionals are in great need of practical solutions on how to engage the public by using content focused on investing and money management. Presenting to about 150 Investor Education professionals from around the globe, Kerry explained best practices for developing a community of loyal customers who will consistently consider and trust the messages being provided.
Kerry’s presentation was smart, practical, substantive and quite funny. I think she can add ‘Stand-Up Comic’ to the list of terms—including educator, trainer, marketer, writer, business woman, and attorney—describing her considerable abilities, as well as the way she delivers value to her employer, MarketingProfs. The event host, conference participants, and I learned so many practical and usable strategies from the workshop that I plan to, at some point, use her and MarketingProfs to train those individuals responsible for using financial content to develop our customer base. If you have need of a great presenter that can speak on this subject or someone to help you to train your leaders in content marketing, I would highly endorse Kerry and her organization.
Kerry conducted an expert round table session for our Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta. She answered questions about law for bloggers with another area attorney, and the feedback was excellent! Conference attendees really appreciated Kerry’s knowledge and experience, and her knack for distilling complicated legal information into a few actionable takeaways that bloggers can use.
Women and International Business Advocate
Kerry delivered an informative and entertaining presentation that covered the basics of mobile marketing law for small business owners. The feedback was resoundingly positive, and we’d be glad to have her as a presenter for future events.
