David A. West, Senior Advisor

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 A. West – founder of the leading Calgary Web design and online marketing firm eKzact Solutions – found his beginnings in professional 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 web development service. Since 2004, he’s been leading a team of creative professionals to help 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.

From Humble Freelancer to Google Partner Agency

David lead the marketing agencies that he founded to acheive Google Partner status through the Google Partner program in 2015. 

Working with Digital Agencies

With over 20 years experience working developing businesses online David has a wealth of knowledge to share with you as you develop your digital marketing services. David always felt that the lack of coaches and mentors with direct experience was a missing element. 

Working with Business Owners

Not all digital marketing services are created equally. We work with clients to select a service provider in their area that they can grow to trust. So many ‘fly by night’ web developers and agencies are willing to say damn near anything to get your money. Now you can have an on demand Internet Consultant on your team.

Business Development

If you business is stuck and you need a boost over the next hurdle, talk to David. He has successful developed more than one business that all still operate. David’s focus is on helping brick and mortar businesses succeed. 

Do You Need an Engaging Speaker?

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

Professional Speaker

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.
