I saw that a number of our VIPs (senior staff and board members) approached Steve after the ceremony to further discuss his ideas; a sure sign of an inspiring speech and an approachable speaker!
Melbourne Polytechnic

I've known Steve Sammartino for a number of years and 1st saw him present at Ignite Melbourne in 2010. Over my career I've been in the audience of a large number of speakers, in my opinion Steve is one of the best, frankly he makes it look to easy - throwing a net over a fascinating, range of interconnected tech, startup, future, pop culture and psychology topics with a deep knowledge, visible passion and energy. I've invited him to speak at two organisations I've worked at, a world-famous travel guide company and one of Australia's largest banks, hugely disparate audiences, yet on both occasions Steve delighted, entertained, engaged and educated. His talk at the bank was seen by over 250 people and was regarded by all I spoke to as the best talk they'd seen during the year, a very significant achievement given we had many world-class speakers in the last 12 months - Steve topped them all. And that's not all - he goes above and beyond to be approachable and interested in our people, a rare trait. What I love most about Steve is his boundless energy and amazing positivity - it is palpable and highly infectious. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Head of IT

Steve Sammartino was the ideal speaker for Small Business BIG Marketing. It was the first time I have worked with Steve and he was bang on message! He delivered exactly what we asked of him but what impressed me the most was his delivery. His energy held the audience's attention for the duration of the event. His enthusiasm was amazing and information he imparted was invaluable for the attendees. Steve was willing to share marketing tips and tactics relevant to start ups but also had the big business insight. Steve was a delight to work with and provided very popular with guests who he was happy to chat to during break periods. I will absolutely use Steve again as a keynote speaker.
Event Management
he Launch Box

Steve Sammartino is simply the best presenter I have worked with. His ability to connect, engage and excite is second to none. In my time working with Steve I witnessed time and again his ability to 'wake-up' an audience and inspire them to want to achieve new levels. His energy is palpable, his delivery always superb and his content world class and always unique. If you ever get the chance to hear Steve speak, or in fact have Steve speak at your event, then you can be sure the audience will be far better off as a result.
Grey Group Australia

I was lucky enough earlier this year to see Steve Sammartino present the final keynote presentation for our ad:tech Melbourne conference. I am sure I can speak for most in the room that day by saying that Steve’s enthusiasm, personality and idea’s around “Why Selfish Marketers Fail” was one of the best finishes to a conferences I have seen and it is testament to Steve’s presenting style that he was able to promote such interactions and ideas from an audience at the end of a 2-day conference. As a conference organizer Steve’s presentations are exactly the type of experience we (and of course our audience) is looking for. In keeping with his theme for this particular presentation Steve’s content was anything but “selfish” as he was able to put forward relevant examples, interact and entertain the audience and even share personal experiences which all added to the unique and passionate experience of his presentation. It goes without saying that Steve will continue to be involved in presenting at many of our events as we move into the future.
