Ian Anderson Gray

International Keynote Speaker

Live Video & streaming, Performance & Confidence Coach & Social Media Tools Expert

I’m passionate about teaching and turning the techno-babble

of social media, marketing, and technology into plain English

Learn! Discover! Boost Your Business! Have Fun!

What attendees get...

  • Learn how to use the latest tools to help market your business

  • Use Live Video & other techniques to get your message heard

  • Get actionable ideas for promoting your business

  • Learn the latest techniques to become more efficient and productive

Rather unintentionally, I've become known as The Tools Guy. I regularly present on the topic of social media, live video and marketing tools.

While we all know tools aren’t the answer to all our problems they can help you be more productive, effective & smarter."

Alexandra Kington

Ian spoke at our inaugural Big Social Media Conference. Not only did he deliver an insightful and engaging talk on social media tools (with some great takeaways for the audience) he was also an exceptional advocate in the run-up to the conference, supporting all marketing communications and assisting in promotion.

He is certainly an expert in his field, but down to earth and refreshingly humble with it. Our audience was delighted with the information shared and we would certainly have Ian on our wish list for future conferences.

Ian Anderson Gray

Ian was spot on! He nailed his content and had a great presence on stage.
Very engaging towards the audience, too. He and Amy Porterfield were by far the best speakers, content-wise and stage presence-wise.

I’ve delivered many different types of presentations.

Examples include social media tools, best practices in social media and technology and live video.

I trained as a professional singer back in the day. I studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in the UK. My mother was an opera singer and a teacher, and I’ve inherited her passion for being on stage as well as teaching!

I always aim to give lots of actionable tips in my presentations, and I can’t help but add a little bit of British humour to the mix (I am British after all!). I do get a thrill at seeing people learn as well as exploding people’s brains (in a friendly way of course).
