Bio


Richard Laermer is an expert in marketing and media, and CEO of the world-renowned (and provocative) firm RLM Public Relations, a 21-year-old independent communications firm that rose to prominence as the first to bring then unheard of dot-coms to the covers of magazines everywhere. RLM was online when online wasn't cool - and then when it was. More recently, RLM has become the go-to consultant for doses of social media reality. With many years' experience as a journalist, Laermer understood how to deliver results for his clients while respecting the demands placed on overburdened reporters. Some of RLM's marquee clients include Fujifilm, Barnes & Noble, Allergan, Consumer Reports, Discovery Health Channel, Time Life, E*Trade, Smith & Nephew, and The Young Turks, among others.

Laermer hosted TLC's Taking Care of Business reality show, and is a popular speaker who has keynoted across the US and in numerous nations. He is also an oft-quoted source to media and other influential types on topics regarding the future of this crazed world, and the author of the bestsellers 2011: Trendspotting, Punk Marketing, and Full Frontal PR.

Richard Laermer is known as a "media guy" who comprehends the changing scope of influence. His outlandish - though logical - speeches about trends, media, and marketing have wowed audiences as he is asked to host seminars and keynote corporate for civil organizations, marketing groups, PR and sales forces, and genial gatherings. He shows those who market how to change their ways with techniques that aren't tried or true yet are, ultimately, effective.

Speech Topics


Trendspotting: Staying Informed to Drive Your Business

Richard Laermer, who is known as a Future Provocateur, has developed a popular trendSpotting program and discusses, plainly, why its so important for each of us to recognize trends and stay informed on more levels than ever before. He shows (rather than merely tells) audiences how to recognize and affect trends in their and their customers' industries, illustrating the value of in-depth understanding of why the future is closer than you think, using real-world examples specific to the breathless crowd.

The See-Through Approach to Fixing PR in Corporate America

Richard Laermer, author of Full Frontal PR, which Entrepreneur magazine called the "PR handbook," explores and explains the bond between today's PR and the coveted bottom line of sales, examining why this relationship is all-too-often tenuous. The one-hour program examines the why of modern PR and where it fits into large corporate budgets (not to mention what return should be expected from PR investment). As sales professionals continue to look to marketing to generate not only leads, but also on-message media and influencer coverage for a company, executive, or product, Laermer provides specifics of what to look for - and what to avoid at all costs - in a successful corporate campaign of epic proportions.

How to Be a Social Media Magnet

A common problem many companies run into as they try to manage a social media presence is what Richard Laermer calls "GMOOT," or "Get Me One of Those!" Too often marketers are looking directly to their competitors - the so-called "cool" companies - to determine how to dive into social media. But the key, says Laermer, is developing a presence that is above all active - and always authentically so. Laermer will help your organization identify, from a PR/marketing standpoint, which social media strategies will actually work for your company - regardless of latest fads and media popularity.

As a nine-year social media veteran whose 20-year-old PR firm launched Flickr and the very first social networks (Word.com, Internet.com, and Fortune City), Laermer can teach and entertain you about the keys to social media strategy that will inspire your consumers while constantly supporting every bit of your brand message.

After a consultation (and some jokes), Laermer will prep and present a compelling one-hour program tailored to your organization. Marketers and energized executives will walk away with a social media strategy that will hit users over the head and make them say, "Thats something Ive got to engage in."
