See what other people had to say about Steve here:

“He was very insightful and kept 30 of our top management consultants totally captivated. No easy task. After the presentation, Steve led an interactive session with the management consultants about ‘what we could do differently tomorrow.’ The session was of such interest that we re-arranged our afternoon sessions to continue the interactive discussion. I would strongly recommend Steve Barton as a speaker and moderator.” – Julian, Celerant Consulting

“He is always well prepared, professional and has terrific command of his subject. I would recommend Steve to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge about word of mouth marketing and look forward to working with him on a range of marketing topics in the future.” Hannah, Direct Marketing Association (UK)
