Hall of Fame keynote speaker Jay Baer is also an in-demand emcee for complex, multi-day events, and has hosted events for IBM, Oracle and many other major brands for audiences as large as 15,000 attendees.


He prepares vigorously, reviewing presentations of all main stage speakers with event organizers beforehand, but remains largely unscripted, to be able to connect the thematic dots on-the-fly.


Jay also takes on many panel moderation assignments each year, and can easily pull double or triple duty at your event (keynote + emcee + moderator). He’s even done several awards ceremonies, and loves handing out trophies!

Jay was the host for three days at our global IBM conference (thousands in attendance) and he was fantastic. He was very well prepared and turned a good event into an excellent event. — Matt Stryker Global Marketing, IBM
