"I LEARNED A TON JUST BY
WATCHING KERRY PRESENT."
"I’ve been lucky enough to have presented side by side with Kerry. He’s one of the best in the business, with a new business win rate to back it up. Best of all, he doesn’t just know how to do it. He knows how to show other people how to do it."
— John Adams, Chairman, The Martin Agency
"Everything about this workshop is valuable. You’re diving into some intense training but it doesn’tfeel overwhelming."
— Art Director, FCB Global
"Kerry gets your attention from hello. He has a very persuasive style, using a combination of entertainment and intelligence. Any creatives who want to accelerate their careers will want to learn from Kerry."
— Chris Shumaker, Chief Marketing Officer, FCB
"Kerry is truly a gifted salesman of creative work. Watching him take the same creative you had just presented and then provide other ways into it —selling your own work better than you did— was humbling but also inspiring. You wanted to be as good as him. He made you WANT to be a better presenter. I want my entire team to take this workshop!"
— ACD, Geometry
"The story of how an idea is developed - told well - is what gives a company the confidence to back that idea. Kerry is among the best at this important piece of the process."
— Caley Cantrell, Professor/Head of Strategy - VCU Brandcenter
"I learned more in two days about selling than in the past two years."
— Creative Director, Doner
"Kerry is like a presentation personal trainer. Dreaming up a campaign is one thing; selling it convincingly is a whole
other deal. Kerry will teach you to think from multiple stake-holder POV’s so you can make more powerful things. See you
— Franklin Tipton & Libby Brockhoff, Founders, Odysseus Arms
"Experiencing how Kerry puts a presentation together was great. The combination of minimal images, perfectly worded text, and his storytelling to stitch everything together. It really sparked my imagination and got me thinking beyond just the creative, but how to present and sell creative."
— Writer, BuzzFeed Motion Pictures
"Kerry’s thoughtful and persuasive way is something most every client can appreciate, and many creatives need to learn.
He helps you understand WHY you love the work you buy."
— Kersten Rivas, President, Source
"This class didn’t use the cliche methods like “picture the audience in their underwear”. Kerry decided individually how each of us would get better based on our own presentation style. I found myself improving on the spot."
— ACD, Butler Shine Stern & Partners
"Kerry’s as passionate about the business as they get. When I was at Nissan, he had a way of setting the stage before he showed the work and made you feel he was there to solve your business issue, not a creative issue. During the Great Recession, that was very much appreciated, believe me."
— Jon Brancheau, VP Sales & New Business Development, FMR
"It wasn’t just about the creative part of presentations. We learned how to manage, frame and steer a presentation from strategy to execution."
— ACD, Ogilvy NY
"He understands that storytelling engenders trust, and that trust is critical to selling great work."
— Bill Westbrook, Former President and Chief Creative Officer, Fallon Worldwide
"Every other class I’ve taken tells you only what to do. Kerry tells you why."
— Art Director, BBDO Canada
"If you get a chance to work or train with Kerry, jump on it! He is deeply engaging and understands the nuances of selling creative work."
— Anne Chambers, CEO, RED212
"Presenting is not my favorite thing. Now I feel like that was only because I had no idea what I was doing."
— Copywriter, Doner Detroit
"Kerry’s a great presenter because he knows how to listen. And by listening, he solves marketing challenges the first time, not the third or fourth."
— Jon Castle, President Nissan United, TBWA
"As creatives, the brief isn’t always our friend, but Kerry taught us to look at it differently to expose the “ways in” to the work and to help unlock the strategic argument that would sell it. It definitely made me take a deeper look at my creative and how I talk about it."
— ACD, 4A’s workshop
"Kerry is a pirate. Swashbuckling and fun, but always knows where the gold is hidden. He can sniff it. He has an uncanny sense of what needs to happen in a presentation and uses it for maximum effect. Unpredictable, riveting and precise.
— Brad Armstrong, President, Armstrong Partners
"This workshop was very helpful. Not only for my career, but life in general."
— Copywriter, BBDO Canada
