Every year I scour the internet for a list of digital marketing conferences happening in Canada to make my wishlist of ones I want to attend or speak at. I’m sharing my list because, well, why the heck would I not?
If the conference has a “slogan” I’ve included it (because I’m too lazy to write a description for each). Don’t forget to check if early bird registration is open yet to save some $$.

How to Find a Digital Marketing Speaker in Canada
Let me give it to you straight, I’ve been to a TON of events, listened to and watched a lot of speakers, the one key thing that I can’t stand is fluffy shit. Like, can I watch so-and-so talk and then go home and implement what I learned from them?
I love that value, I love hearing about cool stuff other people are doing in the online marketing space. Like most people, I don’t need “motivational” or “pie in the sky” content when I attend conferences, events or meetups.
So, if you’re looking for someone to deliver actionable takeaways in an entertaining and exciting way, ask me!
I will wake up your audience.
I will teach them social media marketing strategies and tactics they can do right away.
I will show actual, real-life examples that light a fire under their ass to execute.
