Jason Keath, Founder, Social Fresh | Social Fresh 2011

“Clay is the Green Bay Packers of speakers. While he may jump into the crowd after a good presentation, the crowd is asking for it. His insights combine big business acumen with an excellent understanding of executing digital and social marketing. He will have your audience cheering and asking for autographs. Clay was one of the highest rated speakers at Social Fresh Baltimore and we look forward to having him speak again.”

Derek Halpern, Founder, Social Triggers | Social Fresh 2011

“The topic of Social Media ROI gets a lot of attention but not a lot of clarity. Clay’s presentation cut through the B.S. and showed brands exactly how to set specific objectives and get real value out of social media. One of my favorite talks of the conference.”

Ben Matthews, Technical Director at 22Squared | LessConf 2010

Cameron, Chris, Saul and Clay were your heavy hitters this year so it would be great to have them back again.
