“I’m rarely impressed with someone’s ability to hold a rooms attention for longer than 10 minutes. Darcy had my attention for almost 4 hours—she was amazing.” —Keith Daubmann, VP, MY Shower Door
Darcy’s presentations are fast-paced with great, fun, and appealing visuals that encourage engagement and interactions between her and the audience – definitely not the same-old, same-old boring PowerPoint presentations that many presenters pull out of the attic. Her programs garner hundreds of registrants and participants, eager to hear Darcy share her knowledge of how to be the best YOU possible, I would recommend to anyone to hire Darcy Eikenberg for professional development training and speaking engagements. –Lucie Sandal, senior director, alumni engagement, Northwestern University
If you’re investing your time, energy, and money to hold a conference, retreat or other event (live or online), you want to engage a keynote speaker who can help you make it count.
You want people to WANT to be present, and to WANT to put away their devices and distractions for a while.
You want it to be fun. Relevant. And easy to manage.
That’s what I want for you, too.
And every element of my speaking programs—from my attention-getting topics to my teams’ experience-based behind-the-scenes logistics support, to our high-energy content with takeaways and follow-up tools—all are designed to get you the results you want from the opportunity you have with your people.
If we haven’t met, I’m Darcy Eikenberg. I’m an experienced keynote speaker, plus I love leading leading customized workshops and webinars. It’s been my honor to be featured at events for State Farm, Deloitte Consulting, Mondelēz International, Northwestern University, Cracker Barrel, AON, Eastman Chemical, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), the Society of Actuaries (SOA), the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and other corporate and professional organizations.
Will yours be next? A conversation is fast and free.
