Passionate Marketing Speaker
Check out my slide decks, a video, the list of conferences I’ve spoken at and what audience and conference organizers have to say
Yep, I speak at conferences, workshops, and seminars. I’ve spoken in front of crowds as large as 1000+ as well as small, intimate groups. As a former conference organizer and seasoned content curator, I know what goes into an exceptional talk.
On stage, my goal is to educate, inspire, delight and entertain the audience to level up their marketing with no-fluff, actionable tactics and strategies. I never, ever pitch. I bring my passion. And I want to make it feel like I’m talking to you – not talking at you. I’ve been coached by some best speakers in the industry because I believe feedback is the fastest path to excellence.
And yes, sometimes I do the robot on stage 🤖

Why should they come to your event and why should they get their ticket right now?

Every Lil Word Counts! Writing Web Copy As The Marketing Generalist
Web copy is often guilty of being dead boring to read. As marketers behind a computer screen we forget there are real humans on the other side. We write to robots. As if our audience has no emotion, doesn’t smile at puppies and certainly doesn’t watch movies. And chances are the same copy doesn’t convert as well as it could across your web channels.
At Whistler Bike’s Digital Marketing Conference I talked about:
- Why it’s not just important but business critical to use a little oomph – or personality in your web and email copy.
- Why telling someone they don’t belong is a good thing.
- How listening and asking your prospects is your No. 1 best writing tool.
- How isolating elements of your copy will help your conversions.

"Stefanie is a fantastic speaker whose energy and enthusiasm are golden assets for anyone planning an event. As a seasoned content curator herself, she proved the perfect eleventh-hour pinch-hitter for our digital marketing conference, Whistler Bike. Stefanie took on the unenviable task of speaking to a topic slightly outside her usual bailiwick, providing the perfect balance of concrete takeaways and interesting anecdotes to keep our audience engaged. I would highly recommend bringing her in to speak to any group, and if you can throw her into the deep end on a downhill mountain bike too, you'll really appreciate her spirit!"
