SEO Speaker at marketing conferences & business events

Mark's professional speaking journey started over a decade ago when a local business expo asked him if he would consider being a featured speaker as he had already built up a great reputation as the go-to guy when it came to anything SEO related due to being in the industry since 2001. At the time, Mark had already delivered a few talks at local business networking groups, so he progressed forward and never looked back.

Mark then got his name (personal brand) known as 'the' SEO speaker as this very website is ranking around the top of Google for the term 'SEO Speaker', which helped. They do say that 'proof is in the pudding'.

Since then, Mark has spoken on stages professionally at a variety of SEO and marketing conferences, trade events, franchise events, business networking events, business expos, and large corporate events - virtually, in-person within the UK, and around the World. That is on top of hosting his own events, as he wanted to understand the challenges that bookers and event organisers face.
