I’ve been President or senior executive of various organizations for many years and have had many opportunities to hire keynote speakers. We hired Mark Maraia for our 2007 franchisee convention after a meticulous search and he did a fantastic job! He was completely focused on helping our franchisees succeed. The level of homework he did before his keynote address in learning about our business was first rate. If you are looking for a captivating speaker whose energy is contagious give Mark a call! He is one of the best I’ve worked with.

The Meritas Annual conference is a gathering of 300 lawyers from independent firms around the world. Mark Maraia not only opened our conference with an inspiring general session that set a positive tone for our meeting, he also spoke and facilitated more intimate discussions with smaller groups. Mark makes the topic of building relationships tangible to our smart, independent audience which frequently does not take the time to focus on this critical process. Mark provides the structure, yet is versatile in his presentation, honest and clear in his communication, and engaging such that this diverse group of individuals universally endorse him.

"I wanted to thank you for the excellent program. While I could not stay for the whole presentation because I am fighting a really bad cold, what I saw was outstanding and I don't say that very often. I am one of the more senior partners in the firm (31 years as an attorney). I do quite a bit of speaking and also have the opportunity to observe many speakers (including my colleagues). You have the unique skill set of being affable, friendly, and informative, as well as interesting and respectful of the participants. You got rave reviews and I know everyone learned a lot. I look forward to reading more of your materials."

"I very much enjoyed your presentation in Monterey at the Lex Mundi Institute. I wanted you to know that I'll be using the educational materials you posted on the Lex Mundi website, and I have already shared with my colleagues the link to a free copy of Rainmaking Made Simple. I've recommended your book and your newsletters as a great resource for our lawyers who are interested in further advancing their business development skills. My firm has requested that I give presentations to our lawyers in several offices relaying what I learned from the Institute. For these presentations, I intend to heavily incorporate portions of your lessons, as they were among the most practical and useful lessons from the entire conference (and I found every day of the Institute useful, so that's saying a lot!). I’d give your program my highest possible recommendation."
