Professional SEO Speaker - Creating long-lasting positive impact!

My professional speaking journey started over a decade ago when a local business expo asked me if I would consider being their keynote speaker as I 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, I had presented a few freebie talks at business networking groups, so I thought 'why not get paid for it'.

I then got my name known as an SEO speaker as I was ranking No.1 on Google for the term 'SEO Speaker', which helped.

Since then, I have spoken on stages professionally around the world at a variety of business expos, business & corporate events, business & trade  organisations, plus marketing conferences. That is on top of hosting my own events.

Professional SEO keynote speaker - Mark A Preston


All my talks are bespoke to you and your audience, however, here are 4 topics I have delivered several times, which you can request:

1. Get into the right SEO mindset and start delivering real impact!

This SEO mindset keynote talk is aimed at marketing professionals and small business owners as they 'need' to think about SEO in the right way so they can start achieving real impact. I will get them to question themselves giving them that lightbulb moment and send them away with a few content and SEO action points to follow.

2. Build a brand with content and SEO your customers want to do business with

This keynote talk is aimed at brands (business, corporate and personal brands) who need to increase new business (leads and sales). In a very easy to understand way, I will take them through a journey that explains how they can use the power of content and SEO to build their brand awareness and reputation so people 'want' to do business with them.

3. Are you working on SEO tasks that generate zero impact?

This SEO keynote talk is aimed at digital marketing and SEO professionals. In the world of SEO, there are thousand of SEO tasks that you could do. In fact many people spend many hours working on things that generate zero impact. In this keynote I get the audience in the right mindset about what they should prioritise through a thought process and finishing off with a little quiz.

4. Why you should embrace AI and not fear it when it comes to SEO

This AI (including ChatGPT) keynote talk is aimed at both the SME and corporate sectors. I break AI down into a non-techie, easy to understand way so the audience can fully relate to it in a useful context. This is an interactive keynote where I explain both the exciting and scary parts of AI and how businesses can use the power of AI to help streamline content and SEO research, ideation and even creation, to an extent.

I am able to deliver all my keynote talks either in-person or virtually

Back in early 2020 when Covid hit the UK and the professional speakers diary suddenly became empty due to cancelled bookings, I decided from that moment on, I would offer to deliver all my keynote talks either in-person or virtually and kitted my home office out with everything a professional speaker would need to deliver an in-person experience, but virtually.

What does Mark A Preston (the professional SEO speaker) do?

What are the key points of your speaker session?

Although I craft each talk so it totally relates to the audience and the impact the event/conference organiser needs to generate, there are similar key points from every one of my speaker sessions...

  • I give the audience the right mindset - If they are not thinking in the right way, they will never achieve what they need to achieve.

  • The audience starts to think about the 'why' - SEO and content is not just a tick box. The audience need to understand the purpose behind what they are doing.

  • The audience will learn what is really important to drive leads and sales for their business or the business they work for.

  • They will even receive a few action points to take away with them.

Like I said, I don't have a set structured talk I present to every audience as each audience are individual and as such my speaker session must be tailored to them or they just won't get the true value out of it.
