When you’re looking for a speaker, facilitator or MC …

Wouldn’t it be nice to find someone who will breathe fresh energy into your team, conference or company event?

Imagine someone engaging, entertaining and relatable. Someone who won’t simply narrate PowerPoint slides and would never stand behind the podium even if you tried to chain him to it.

You already know you want someone who will deliver something that is not just uplifting (though that’s important to you too) but immediately understandable and actionable.

Someone REAL.

Well … you just found someone.

Meet Kevin Bulmer.

What People Are Saying About Kevin

My first impression was, ‘Wow. He’s good.’ He captured everybody’s attention. His content was right-on. He knows how to get everyone involved, and he’s funny! If you’re not funny, my gosh, I can’t listen. But he got my attention. It was awesome.

Kevin looks like a seasoned professional. He captures the audience. I think Kevin could be on any stage; the big stages, the medium stages.

When Kevin’s speaking, I can feel the connection with him. And if I can feel it, I’m sure everybody in the audience could too, because I’ve been doing this for over 30 years, and the most important thing is to connect with everybody individually.

Bob Kittellaward-winning international speaker & author of “Enlighten Up”

Kevin delivered such a powerful presentation that it seemed that the audience forgot to breathe while listening to him. The message he delivered was kind of magic … Kevin is passionate and has the gift of genuinely connecting and interacting with the audience. His presentation on how to run your own race is inspirational and empowering.

Kevin’s recent performance at the Business & Entrepreneurship Conference Northumberland certainly did not disappoint! From the beginning planning stages months prior, right down to the day of the event and session execution – Kevin’s outgoing personality, captivating demeanor and professionalism certainly made for a wonderful working relationship. Kevin delivered with enthusiasm and connected with the audience with his messaging on a personal level and we immediately received amazing reviews from our attendees on his two sessions. You can clearly see the passion Kevin has for speaking and connecting with the audience that he truly cares to inspire and deliver high quality and genuine messaging. Thank you Kevin!

Our thanks to Kevin Bulmer, the No Schedule Man, for his incredible presentation to our member agencies.

All our representatives were truly inspired and most appreciative of his wonderful delivery skill, timing and great stories. And of course the incredible message he delivers. We look forward to working with Kevin again in the future.

I attended two talks by Kevin at a conference in 2018. After each talk he was surrounded by people wanting more. I knew I wanted that energy at my event! Months later, he spoke at our volunteer appreciation event and as promised everyone was thrilled. I would definitely recommend him to bring a more professional touch to your event.

Kevin, I can’t thank you enough for the talk you delivered to the high-performing group at the Remax A/B 2018 Awards Banquet. Your presentation had a direct impact on many people, and lives will be changed for the better as a result. Your words were meaningful, inspiring, and relatable. Amazing job, I look forward to the next one!

Kevin’s special appearance with our clients was completely emotionally empowering! His story resonated with everyone in the room as he walked us through his personal experience. The level of engagement and discussion after the session could have lasted for hours but lasting impact is still be discussed today. I cannot wait to work with Kevin again and hopefully have him join us for another session real soon.

In our communications leading up to our event, Kevin strived to understand what would be most meaningful to our participants. His message was positive, encouraging and very relatable. The sincerity of his personal approach and willingness to be vulnerable really allowed our group to connect with him.

I heard Kevin Bulmer at an Ottawa event and you could hear a pin drop during his opener, laughs from the other room during his stories and throats swallowing at his authenticity. You will love him! I do!

Tracy SchmittAuthor, Speaker, Humanitarian

I think my exact words were, ‘I feel like I could lift a building right now,’ because I was just so empowered by your presentation … It blew me out of the water. It was what I was expecting and then some and more after that. It was really, really impressive. This is how we wanted to end the conference, leaving people feeling good, feeling empowered, walking away with a sense of, ‘Life may have handed me a couple curve balls, but I can make a change and I can make the most out of my situation.’

Stephanie McGill, Executive Director, Brain Injury Association of London & Region

It was wonderfully successful. People were really thrilled with some of the ideas they were getting to help move their organization forward. Kevin has a really calm but engaging way of communicating with people. The people in the audience were really involved in terms of listening and taking that nugget home that’s going to help them move forward. They liked the messaging and the idea to engage yourself and to accept and be at peace with who you are; to live and work to improve that but to stay that steady course.

Myles Vanni, Ontario Association of Food Banks Annual Conference

"I would highly recommend Kevin for any public events as a Keynote Speaker or MC! Thanks for your help with making our conference a success this year Kevin!"

How to Achieve REAL Success with Social Media Marketing for Small-to-Midsize Business

It’s called social media (not sales media). So why would busy, stressed out people invite a business (any business) into their social media feeds, let alone care about it?

The answer’s actually pretty simple. But most of us miss it because we’re busy looking for something else.

In this fun, effective and immediately relatable presentation, Kevin will shift your perspective to see how fundamentally simple it really can be to use social media in a way that will grow your business.

He’s a world -class speaker that consistently delivers entertaining, captivating, and valuable keynotes to our audience. We’re looking forward to bringing him back by popular demand.
