My experience drives the presentations that I give at conferences and events. My talks are about strategy, not platforms. They are light, fun and tailored to the audience. I love Q&A. I don’t just want to speak at an event, but participate in the event as a whole and have a hand in its success.

I’ve spoken for companies like CNN, Dell and FedEx, for conferences like South by Southwest Interactive and for educational institutions like Australian National University, Northwestern and Arizona State.

For more information, please see my professional speaking page or contact me.


“Anyone can give a presentation. Only a rare few can construct and lead a presentation with impact and panache, and also wrangle co-presenters who are genetically programmed for procrastination. Patrick O’Keefe is that guy. I’d pay him to moderate the reading of my will someday, but he’s probably already booked. He’s that good.”

– Jay Baer, President, Convince and Convert

“I don’t care what qualities you look for in a conference or meeting speaker, the one that matters is whether or not they deliver value. Patrick O’Keefe delivers value, and does so with a professional approach and easy to understand style that delivers across the spectrum of technological aptitudes. Hire him.”

– Jason Falls, Founder, Social Media Explorer

“Many conference talks seem to be nothing more than a thinly veiled exercise in self-promotion and business development. Patrick is the exact opposite: he takes enormous pride and satisfaction in delivering independent, genuinely fascinating and entertainingly delivered talks that never fail to fill an auditorium.”

– Alicia Navarro, CEO and Founder, Skimlinks
