What They Say
Tod's presentation was really excellent! His professional and personal messages are powerful, engaging and moving. Tod is truly are a very gifted speaker and a resilient individual.
Conference Board of Canada
Tod's presentation style was engaging, his material was clear and concise and contained detailed information (not just tree-top ideas). He’s obviously been around the public radio block, so to speak, and offered a fantastic balance of eight tips along with real live examples.
Tod spoke at our WAB conference and it is still spoken at each WAB meeting! Tod provided a wealth of knowledge, information and entertainment that has fundamentally changed how some broadcasters who watched him at our 2006 WAB conference continued their business operations.
Western Association of Broadcasters
Tod's presentations are always a big draw at our conference. He is master at making people forget they are being presented to. Our attendees feel that it's just a friend sharing some ideas. By the end of the presentation though, attendees have a full page of notes and a head full of ideas.
Bob Goyetche, Podcasters Across Borders
Tod is deeply and actively engaged in experimenting with digital technologies, figuring out ways to make them work, and then sharing those ideas with colleagues and audiences in ways that easy to understand, easy to implement, provide results, and get people excited instead of scared.
Steve Pratt, Director of Digital Media, CBC
Tod is a smart, professional and engaging public speaker. I have heard him speak many times and at many different venues. No matter what setting he is in, he manages to captivate his audience and leave them wanting more.
Joanne Hepplewhite, Navigata Communications
Tod provided a wealth of knowledge, information and entertainment that has fundamentally changed how some broadcasters who watched him at our 2006 WAB conference continued their business operations. He is really just that good!
Western Association of Broadcasters
Tod has a killer sense of timing and sharp insights. He offers a humane and compelling view of how to survive when the 500-channel universe lurches into a future of consumer-generated media. He always finds a way to make his audience look at things differently.
Eric Eggertson, b5media Inc
Tod Maffin is an expert in his field and also smart and down-to-earth. He understands social media completely and is certainly a thought leader. I have seen Tod speak a few times — he's a confident, funny and engaging speaker. I would certainly recommend him for any conference.
Tod is one of the most dynamic and insightful social media and technology visionaries of his time. His natural charm and witty humor had the audience in stitches. Many people said they liked his presentation better than our event's other speaker's — Malcolm Gladwell’s which speaks for itself.
Lindsay Smith, F5 Expo
Our attendees appreciated Tod’s lively humour, exceptional insight into the ‘Facebook Generation’, and his ability to engage a large and diverse audience in such an intimate manner. Despite the large size of the ballroom, it felt like we were having a personal conversation with Tod around the table.
Council for International Education
Tod is a dynamic presence on stage — funny, informative and he challenged us all to re-consider how we use social media to connect with our communities. I’m sure Twitter saw an increase in users after his presentation!
Planning Institute of British Columbia
Tod’s keynote was thought provoking, informative and engaging. He did an excellent job of connecting with the audience through Taking Crazy Back; an honest assessment of the issues faced in today’s workplace. He is one of the best speakers that we have had!
Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation
Some of the comment from our comment cards included: Excellent!, engaging speaker, an honest and relevant presentation that is immediately actionable for the audience, lives and breathes the topic, funny, and rich content.
Food & Consumer Products of Canada
Using stories from his broadcasting days as well as his years as a technology marketer, Tod clearly has a unique style that borrows heavily from standup. His presentation on what makes a video go viral is worthwhile if you ever get a chance to hear it!
Tod was awesome! We put him on at the end of the day which was a great decision. The energy was starting to sag at that point (common to most conferences at the end of the day) and he just blasted out of the blocks! He woke everyone up and gave a thoroughly engaging presentation.
American Marketing Association (BC)
Tod is a delightful, very approachable person to work with – I was impressed by the way he researched our audience. Our attendees were blown away by Tod’s knowledge, high energy and ability to pack a ton of valuable information into his presentation on social media’s ROI.
Canadian Public Relations Society
Tod packed the house in both sessions and he delivered! He has an enormous wealth of expertise on the whole gamut related to social media and the Web 2.0. But content aside, he was also so engaging and inspiring as a presenter that you couldn’t help but have a fabulous time along the way.
TGIM Work Life Magazine
Tod Maffin was a runaway successful speaker. All respondents rated him a 3 out of 3 and comments were extraordinarily positive. Not only was he an outstanding presenter, but his personal story had a very strong impact.
Beth Evans, Alberta Mental Health Board
Excellent seminar today today! I brought eight students from the college with me and they LOVED it! I think they want me to quit lecturing and have you instead!
Adrienne Barnes Lattery
Everyone enjoyed Tod's sense of humor and the way he gave the presentation. I have organized events for many years and I can honestly say that Tod has been one of the most accommodating and friendliest speakers I have ever had the pleasure to deal with.
Medicine Hat H.R. Association
Engaging, relevant and inspiring! Tod's knowledge regarding the Facebook Generation is right-on. He kept our group at the edge of their seats, leaving them inspired and motivated for change. He is a true gem.
Lorella Ventura, Human Resources, LCBO
Your presentation was awesome. It has changed the way that I’m pursuing my career path regarding my family and friends! I want to be a human “being” again! Thanks a million.
Charleston County Recreation
Maffin’s address was liberally spotted with light-hearted stories, but it was also thought-provoking. More than a few of the association’s membership were making notes for future reference.
Tod’s refreshing presentation was relevant, timely, and witty — a rare combination. A remarkable presenter, he had the audience engaged and chuckling first thing in the morning! Our attendees agreed that Tod was the highlight of the day — rating 9.5 out of 10 on the eval forms.
Vancouver Board of Trade
Everyone absolutely enjoyed Tod's presentation at our Annual Staff Meeting. I heard several times that folks would have been happy just listening to him sharing your experience driving to Estevan. Funny and educational. We hire a speaker every year and Tod was the best ever.
Spectra Credit Union
Nobody can match the energy and knowledge Tod brings to the podium. He's a genuine thought-leader — always ahead of the business curve, but without any ‘head-in-the-clouds’ nonsense that so many keynote speakers fall into. One of the best keynote speakers I've seen in my 20 years of business.
