Beside being owner and founder of the network, Nico de Corato is also a Professional Speaker and contributor of many magazines (in UAE, US and Italy).
The professional speaking industry operates on two tracks: the celebrities, like Olympic medal winners or famous politicians, who can come in and immediately command top dollar because of their name recognition; and regular people, who have “built their clientele out over years of learning how to market themselves and provide good content.
Nico has strong expertise and more than 15 years experience in the following areas:
- computer science
- professional blogging
- social media
- web marketing & web communication
- web & media in general (integration online vs offline for example)
Together with the speaking opportunities, we could also support your event/s by promoting on our social and web channels.
