Business Branding Keynote Talk
How To Create a World-Class Brand That Commands Premium Pricing
Keynote Session Description
In an era where consumer trust has taken a nosedive across all industries, integrity and authenticity have emerged as what matters most. More than ever before, people are holding brands to a higher standard. The landscape is changing for brands. In today’s hyper-connected, socially-informed, and media-driven world, people are suspicious of being sold to. Gone are the days when image was everything. Now “image” is suspect, stories are scripted, and messaging is spun into fool’s gold.
Here’s the truth: the more authentic your brand, the more attractive and lucrative your life AND business will be. If you want just a cookie-cutter logo to build a brand, this talk can’t help you. But if you want a brand that stands out, defines your true identity, and catapults your impact, you don’t want to miss this session.
Personal Branding Keynote Talk
Stop Hiding And Be Your Most Authentic Personal Brand.
Keynote Session Description
Does the thought of working on your Personal Brand feel exciting or burdensome? Are you the type of person who is fully self-expressed or cautious with how you show up in the world? Does posting on social media feel natural or inauthentic (perhaps even icky)? Consider that most “personal branding experts” are teaching the superficial, tactical aspects of personal branding. Whether or not you embrace Personal Branding, it’s undeniable that we all desire to be seen, valued, and heard. Personal Branding is the most powerful way to step fully into your true, authentic self in order to attract the right people and opportunities into your life. In this talk, you’ll not only learn about what it means to be a Personal Brand, but how to leverage it in your life, career, or business.
“We’ve witnessed hundreds of terrific presentations over the years, but there are very few that blew our socks off the way Re Perez did. Not only did Re deliver poignant and relevant information engagingly through his content session, but he also went above and beyond to speak individually with attendees offering helpful advice on a more personal level. We received as much positive feedback about his character as we did his content. His brain, energy, and delivery are 10 out of 10!

“It was a pleasure having Re Perez as a speaker at ONTRApalooza. He is knowledgeable, personable, and commands authority when talking to business owners about creating their brand. He made himself available to our attendees throughout the event, and in doing so, he increased the value of attendance. I highly recommend him as a speaker at any event that would benefit from a thought leader on business branding.”
“As one of our keynote speakers at our Driven event, Re Perez can do what I thought was impossible from the stage: Make branding accessible for the average person. He brings a fundamental understanding behind the science of creating world-class brands and presents it in an engaging, entertaining, and inspiring way. I would highly recommend him for any event that wants to add serious value for their attendees while also challenging them to utilize branding to help grow their business.”
