The COVID pandemic certainly has impacted conferences. 2020 was the year of most of my in-person keynotes cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even with in-person events cancelled I quickly moved my talks and keynotes to a virtual format. I can give keynotes live or in a recorded format.
This is from a virtual conference in 2020 in Istanbul.

How to create a content performance culture
Companies spend so much on marketing, creative and the likes. They have to drive results. Of course, what the results are is open to a good strategy session. This book shares the latest and how to move content from happening to content performing.
This session will cover the steps from my Content Performance Culture book on how to make content performance easier.
As part of Create Once Publish Everywhere we will discuss integrating:
I’ve spoken at conferences around the globe and would be happy to consider speaking at your event. (Pricing at the bottom of this page.)
My keynotes and hands-on workshops focus around the art and science of authentic storytelling to set you up for long-term success. As I often mention on my blog, I believe that it’s super important for us to move beyond transactional relationships. We can do that by sharing our own authentic stories (that applies to organizations and people) and build long-lasting, meaningful relationshas seips. Those also lead to business success, by the way.
A sampling of speaking stops: Atlanta, Barcelona, Billings, Boston, Cedar Rapids, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Des Moines, Grand Rapids, Iowa City, Las Vegas, Lisbon, Louisville, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Mumbai, New Orleans, New York City, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Peoria, Reno, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Sioux City, St. Louis and Toronto among others.
I’ve spoken at conferences for:
Healthcare executives and staff
Marketers, content marketers and social media teams
My topic of authentic storytelling and related topics easily applies to many verticals.
Unfortunately, I can’t be flying around the world for free. I’m sure you understand. My pricing typically starts at US$2,500, but is negotiable, especially if you buy books for attendees. Looking forward to hearing from you and your offer.
My authentic storytelling keynote given in Mumbai, India, in 2015:
“Hi Christoph! Thank you again for taking the time to visit and sharing your knowledge! I would really love to take part in one of your intensive workshops and pick your brain on a lot of details you could just roughly touch this time. 🙂”
“Great talk on storytelling including relevant examples. The presence of the presenter was great and was very uplifting to listen to the presentation. Great way to present a relevant topic for not only a particular industry, but for all.”
“Christoph presented to our group, a group of 35 young events industry professionals from around the world, at the ICCA/ibtm Forum for Young Professionals in Barcelona in November 2016. The advice Christoph provided was inspiring and provided a lot of food for thought for how we want to market ourselves going forward, both within our roles in the workplace, as well as individuals trying to set themselves apart in a competitive industry. We were lucky enough to receive a copy of his latest book, and I look forward to reading this and taking his advice on board.”
“Good meeting you & hearing your talk at Triangle Marketing Club Meetup this week. Thanks for making the trip. I took notes & came away with some ideas, so it was time well spent (sorry about the "Go Cyclones" heckle). I was kinda disappointed though. You talked more to applying stories as content than to what I think is the true value proposition of using stories ("Our brains are wired for stories" - Dan Roam, "Back of the Napkin"). Also you talked about resolving conflict, but missed positioning the basic premise of story arc. (I came up with an acronym I like to use - STORY - Situation (backstory), Trouble (conflict), Obstacles Overcome (conflict resolution), Results (why the world is now a better place), and You (What's in it for you - why are you telling me this story). You had some anecdotes, but more stories would have been nice. (Do you follow Andy Goodman - "Good stories for a good cause")? You're a good presenter Christoph, but to me the slides were your pitch deck for ScribbleLive without the company branding: content workflow, not the art of the story. I did thousands (really) of presentations, especially EBCs at Cisco, so I can feel comfortable making that observation. In the end no two people write the same story - and no two people will tell it the same way. I hope you take my comments as positive, because I did enjoy hearing you speak. Best of luck to you Christoph. Regards, Doug”
“Attended your 7 steps to get on a blogging schedule session at Wordcamp Pittsburgh. Was impressed by your strategies, and your presentation skills. Appreciate your suggestion of the tools that work, like socialioomph for example.”
“Christoph's step by step advice to jump starting the timid into action was very effective. His advice was straightforward and easy to implement. Kudos for his ability to instill confidence to those who want their stories told.”
“As I've been hearing and speaking medical terms since I started my medical graduation It's some hard to take them off my vocabulary. Chris Trappe has achieved my subconscious (my mind and heart) with his presentation.”
“I had the pleasure of attending Christoph's workshop at the Hotel Intercontinental in San Diego last week, and really had a marvelous time learning about different ways to fortify and amplify content, various technologies, and tips and tricks to tell your story. Christoph is a wonderful presenter, highly recommended!”
“Christoph Trappe is an excellent speaker! Our attendees at MediaGrowth Summit gave him rave reviews when he spoke for us last week. We really appreciated his intelligent insights! He is an expert on Content Marketing and everyone learned a lot from his presentation.”
