Amber Naslund – Keynote Speaker

Amber Naslund - Social Media Keynote Speaker

I’ve been on stages in some form or fashion for most of my life. From drama to music and professionally as a speaker, it’s truly a place of passion and excitement to me, and I bring my whole, authentic self to my talks every time.

For the past decade, I’ve become a renowned keynote speaker on digital marketing and social media. I’m especially passionate about helping B2B companies understand that not only is digital marketing something they can do well, but that they actually have an advantage today using social media and other online platforms to build credibility, authority, and differentiation.

Whether it’s how to get a handle on content marketing, understanding and harnessing the challenge of social media measurement or marketing analytics, or embracing the marketers’ new role as customer advocate and company change agent, I can deliver an energetic talk filled with concrete takeaways that your audience can put into action the minute they get back to work.

I also often speak on topics that are related to our hyper-connected world but that don’t get discussed often enough, like battling and overcoming imposter syndrome, addressing the intersection of mental health and the workplace, or figuring out how to balance our personal and professional selves online.

If you’d like to talk about hiring an experienced, highly-recommended speaker for any of the following topics (or one you have in mind), just drop me a note below and we’ll connect on what you and your audience need.

Featured Talk:

The Courageous Career: Navigating Work Trauma, Unconventional Experience and Self- Doubt to Reclaim Your Professional Purpose

The professional world looks different today.

How we work is changing, where we work is shifting, and the way we think about our careers is more complicated and messy than it’s ever been. We have careers that don’t follow straight lines, skills that don’t fit neatly on resumes, and both personal and professional speed bumps that often make us doubt what we know and where we fit in.

In this talk, we’ll explore the origins of career fears and doubts and unpack the impact of things like

  • A rapidly changing world of work that redefines what “career paths” can look like
  • Achievement addiction and “hustle culture”
  • Our hyperconnected, anxiety-inducing digital landscape
  • …and more.

We’ll reframe a few things about imposter syndrome and self-doubt, talk through some simple but powerful tools to reclaim and articulate our professional identity, and define what it means to create and thrive in a Courageous Career.

I have had the opportunity to hear Amber speak at various conferences. As someone who works in the same space, what has impressed me the most is her ability to make complex ideas and concepts accessible and meaningful to a diverse audience, from newbies to established practitioners, like me.

In an industry filled with big egos, Amber keeps it real with unique insights, a clear point of view, and actionable ways those who attend her sessions and keynotes can take what they learn and make a measurable impact at their organization or business. Never watered down and always authentic, when I see that Amber is speaking at an event, I make it a point to attend.

SVP Integrated Media Strategy, Weber Shandwick

Few in the social media space have the sound foundation rooted in marketing and communications that Amber has which makes her inherently more qualified that most to guide thinking for companies in social media, communications, marketing, fund-raising and more. Her strength is that her approach is practical, but rooted in sound philosophy.  Amber stands out as a true expert in a crowd of wanna-be’s. I have recommended her in the past, recommend her now and will recommend her in the future and without hesititation.

Jason Falls

Digital Strategist

I would wholeheartedly recommend Amber to any organization in a multitude of capacities particularly if you’re looking for deep experience, an incredibly positive attitude, and a leadership presence and cultural energy rarely seen.

We’ve all felt like we weren’t “enough”, but the social and digitally connected world can make our tendency to compare ourselves to others even worse.

Yes, it’s from 2012. But I’ll forever be proud of this TedX talk that was my first and most vulnerable foray into the story of my mental health journey. It’s raw and real and gives you an idea of how I leave it all out on the stage when I do a talk, anywhere.
