Jay’s Delivered for Tech
D&H Distributing

Need a tech keynote speaker that combines motivation, education, and entertainment? Get it straight from the horse’s mouth. Or the Baer’s mouth. Your call.

I know what I’m talking about when I have the microphone because I’m actually executing every day the same techniques and counsel I include in my presentations and books. It’s not just “speaker theory” it’s real, and proven to make audiences better.

My friend Rory says that “a speech is just an advertisement for what’s possible.” And he’s precisely correct. Yes, your group will love the presentation. But more importantly, I’ll make sure they put it into practice. The real test of a speaker’s effectiveness is how does the audience change their behavior over 60 days, not 60 minutes.

That’s what I care about, and that’s what I want to do for you and your group.

And best of all, I’ve done it many times for tech companies, conferences, and organizations.


The Time to Win: Grow Your Business by Exceeding Customers’ Need for Speed

How much are you willing to wait? If you’re like most of your customers, the answer is very little. Your customers are deciding to buy from you today (and every day) based on how fast you are (or aren’t). More than half of all customers have made a recent purchase from a business that responded first, even if they were more expensive. And, 2/3 of all customers say speed is as important as price.

The Time to Win
Keynote Overview

You Will Learn:

  • Why speed is the most important element of customer experience.
  • How long consumers will wait to hear back from a business.
  • How consumers feel when brands are faster (or slower) than they expect.
  • The huge connection between responsiveness and revenue.
  • Specific, concrete plans you can use to determine the perfect responsiveness (The Right Now) in any customer interaction.
  • You’ll be entertained and inspired by a minimum of 9 relevant, customized (and often hilarious) examples and case studies.

Jay was amazing! We loved that he tailored the presentation to our business and included some of our own data. I was shocked by consumer expectations around speed! He also did a great job of adding humor throughout to keep the audience engaged.
