About David West

How does someone get started on the path to becoming a successful entrepreneur, a recognized authority in the world of online marketing and social media,  a sought-after speaker in Canada?

By giving fire safety presentations, of course.

Unbelievable as it may seem, that’s exactly where David West – founder and president of the leading Calgary Web design and online marketing firm eKzact Solutions – found his beginnings in public speaking. It didn’t take long for him to stop thinking about ways to fireproof offices and move on to bigger things, however.

David started working on the internet in 1995 as a programmer and in 2004 started a full service agency. Since 2004, he’s been leading a team of creative professionals to help Canadian companies find real life success on the Internet (in other words, the kind that helps them to make more money). And now, he’s sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly of what he’s learned with Chambers of Commerce, trade associations, and other business groups across Canada.

While David speaks on a variety of Internet and business topics, some of his key areas of expertise include:

  • The Internet is a massively large database, and What It Means for Your Privacy
  • How Smaller Companies Can Make More Money From the Internet
  • Designing a Search Engine Plan From the Ground Up
  • How to Turn Online Marketing From an Expense Into a Investment
  • Leveraging Social Media to Market Your Business Online

As a Professional Level member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers (CAPS), David is that rare breed of speaker who comes from a technical background, but doesn’t sound like it. In fact, he prides himself on adding a healthy dose of humour and entertainment to every keynote, breakout, and training series he gives. As he tells it, there is a lot for business owners and managers to learn, but that doesn’t mean you have to “speak geek” to teach them.

There isn’t any such thing as a business or industry that can afford to ignore the Internet anymore, and David teaches audiences how to understand and compete in the areas that matter most. If your group is looking for a fun and dynamic speaker – and one that can give your attendees valuable information they can use to grow their businesses – then David West is the Canadian professional speaker for you.
