Partner Testimonials

What others are saying about our accelerator presenter, Jimmy Newson

I have the utmost pleasure working with Jimmy for over two years here at DMWF (Digital Marketing World Forum) – in-person and virtually. A delightful and charismatic speaker with an abundance of marketing knowledge. His sessions are not only delivered in an easily digestible fashion, so the audience is not overwhelmed, his personality is an infection on the stage! Jimmy is always on hand to lend his support and expertise to enhance our delegates’ experience at our conferences. We love working with Jimmy and having him speak at DMWF events for years to come.

Rachael Reid

Portfolio Director - DMWF Events & MarketingTech, Digital Marketing World Forum - World Series

Jimmy is an absolute expert when it comes to developing and implementing digital marketing strategies for producing increased profitability within your business.  He is a powerful speaker who is not only motivational but effectively communicates complex information in an easy to understand way.  I have seen Jimmy address large and small audiences both virtually and in-person – he always delivers dynamic, high-energy performances with extremely valuable content that can be put to use immediately within your organization.  I have learned a lot from him that has benefitted my business significantly and I highly recommend checking Jimmy out if you have the opportunity.  You’ll be glad that you did!

Andrew Frazier, MBA, CFA

Founder, Small Business Pro University

Jimmy is highly engaging, energetic and extremely knowledgeable across a variety of marketing disciplines. He delivers valuable and actionable content, which is exactly what our organization needs to better help our community of under-resourced entrepreneurs. We are immensely appreciative for Jimmy’s support of our organization and the time and expertise he’s contributed to help our small businesses.

Kelly Hunter

Marketing Program Manager, Start Small Think Big, Inc.

Obviously the two major traits found in great speakers are: 1) are they knowledgeable in their chosen subject and 2) are they engaging when they speak. Let’s start with number one. For my digital marketing event, madconNYC, we needed not only great speakers, but experts in a given digital marketing discipline to provide advice and answer the burning questions of our participants. Jimmy is so knowledgeable that not only can he speak intelligently on NUEMROUS marketing topics, but he really is a true “expert” in different disciplines. His advice is proving to be invaluable to our event customers. Now let’s look at number two. Jimmy’s delivery, demeanor, and dynamic personality ensure he can a) make the connection with our audience and b) hold their attention. I know many people who have number one OR number two, but not many that embody both. Jimmy does. And I say this from personal experience having worked directly with him. He’s so good we asked him to be both an Expert AND a thought-leadership speaker! In short, Jimmy is both the bee’s knees AND the cat’s pajamas!
