Brian Honigman speaking at NATO


Hiring Brian Honigman as a Speaker:

If you’re looking for a practical, entertaining and insightful speaker, than I’m the ideal lecturer for your next event. I’ve spoken at numerous organizations and institutions from the United Nations to New York University to NATO to Thomson Reuters about marketing, social media, content marketing, freelancing and career advancement.

Attendees leave my sessions with renewed enthusiasm for marketing (or their career trajectory) as all my advice is based on my academic research as an NYU and UFM adjunct professor, while balanced with real-world examples from a decade of marketing consulting for top organizations.

In the adjacent section you can watch my talk at the NATO Social Media Experts Forum where I discuss how NGO’s can use Twitter and Facebook as lead marketing platforms to support their philanthropic programming.

My most popular live and virtual speaking topics:

Developing a Personal Brand at Work

The key to continued success at your company internally and within your industry externally is building a personal brand that communicates your career accomplishments, values as a professional and above all, your distinct perspective. Learn how to balance building a personal brand with a full-time job to position your career for the long-term.

How to Lead on Social Media

Leaders have the unique opportunity to direct the conversation about their company and industry by using social media strategically. Learn how to embrace social media as an executive to drive sales, humanize your company, and be proactive during a crisis while establishing yourself as an innovative voice in your sector.

Choosing Topics That Resonate

The content produced by companies often misses the mark as it is not focused on the right topics aligned with their customer’s interests and as a result, gets lost amongst the noise. Learn a straight-forward process for select topics of interest to your customers, aligned with your offerings and focused on driving meaningful results for your firm.

Building a Purpose Driven Brand

Your organization’s brand is more valuable than ever as it’s what can help your company earn word-of-mouth on social media and dominate the search results because customers look for you by name. Learn how content marketing can help your organization communicate its unique values and perspective as part of a distinct, memorable brand.

Being Self-Aware on Social Media

Most brand missteps don’t come down to poor taste or ill-will. They’re almost always due to a lack of self awareness. Consumers are savvier than ever and value authenticity, which is why you must be self-reflective about how you’re portraying your company. Learn how to assess your own self awareness and be more genuine on social media.

Balancing Strategy and Spontaneity

Memorable social brands are whimsical, full of surprises and act more like the people they interact with than the gigantic corporations they represent. Learn why it’s beneficial to both plan your marketing with a strategy and account for spontaneity, as balancing each are integral components of successful social media marketing.

Counteracting the Sea of Sameness

Reviewing the activity of competitors isn’t inherently a bad practice as it can be informative and provide ways to inform your approach. The problem is when we become dependent on following the activities of others as justification for a majority of our work as marketers. Learn how to differentiate your marketing to achieve lasting business results.

Practicing Moderation with Marketing

It’s a problem when your marketing feels too much like marketing. Investing too heavily in one channel, being too persistent or coming on too strong are all to be avoided. Learn how to make a more calculated tactical balance and practice moderation with your marketing for a better reception from customers.

Promoting Yourself with LinkedIn

Doing the work isn’t enough to succeed in the workforce today as you’ve got to communicate your accomplishments, challenges and ideas on a regular basis. LinkedIn is one of the many ways you can thoughtfully share what you’re working on, engage in meaningful dialogue and highlight your unique contributions to the field. Learn how to use LinkedIn to promote your work and advance your career.

Navigating an Unconventional Career

There’s no such thing as a linear career path, which is an opportunity to develop a career on your own terms. With more options to choose from than ever before, it’s important to embrace a range of professional experiences to achieve your goals and grow as a leader in your field.  Learn how to map a career path for yourself that’s purposeful, strategic and above-all, rewarding.
