In my opinion “Brian Basilico is the most knowledgeable, engaging and best social media speaker I have ever had the privilege of scheduling for a presentation…and I’ve had quite a few speakers on varied social media topics. Over the last 7 years, I’ve booked many other social media and LinkedIn speakers and all of these pale in comparison to Brian and the great programs he delivers on the social media. He’s spoken to both of my CE groups and got rave reviews. If you’re looking for an expert on everything from LinkedIn to twitter, Facebook and Blogs, Brian Basilico of B2bInteractive Marketing is your guy!”

I would like to take the opportunity recommend Brian Basilico. Brian was outstanding as this morning’s guest speaker of the Aurora University Sales Institute. His knowledge of maximizing the usefulness of LinkedIn for the purpose of generating leads and prospects within a professional B2B context is excellent. I have participated in multiple sessions of Brian’s over the past few years. He is one of the most cutting edge sales driven social media / digital experts I know. Make a point to connect with Brian and catch one of his podcasts to gain additional insight that will help you work with customers and prospects more effectively right away.

I attended one of Brian's presentations today. This one covered Relationship Marketing. As in the past, his material was fresh, compelling, and practical and I learned new strategies. Brian specializes in providing useful information that we can immediately put to use in our businesses.
Brian is talented at developing common sense, effective social media strategies for his clients and implementing them in an efficient way. I strongly recommend Brian.

Ellen Huxtable – Advantage Business Concepts
Brian Basilico's presentation at the 36th Annual Leaders In Action seminar series addressing, “Social Networking for Business – Understanding the “Why” Behind the “How” was informative and enlightening. Attendees gained valuable knowledge to assist in managing social media marketing for their individual businesses and organizations. Brian has certainly earned the title of “Social Media Guru”. Thank you for an exceptional presentation!
Laura Witlox Middaugh – Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce
We had Brian come and do a presentation on Social Media for Small Businesses at one of our events. Brian was very knowledgeable about social media and also had a state of the art video presentation that went with the training. I would highly recommend Brian and B2B Interactive Marketing Inc. to help you with your social media needs.
Jennifer Cannon – Legna Marketing Group
Brian is a dynamic speaker with a passion for his subject. He engages his audience with a balance of supporting statistics, real life examples and useful “how to” information. I recently attended his presentation on using social media in your nonprofit organization. He inspired many of us to get beyond our websites and into the world of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. It obviously worked, because here I am!
Carol Alfrey – Conley Outreach Community Services
Brian presented a great program at the Bellwood Public Library on using social media to find a job. He's the best speaker I've brought into the Library: lively, very knowledgable, with a sophisticated and entertaining PowerPoint presentation. He showed a lot of interest in my patrons attending the program. I found him flexible, adaptable, and I learned a lot from him.
