DOUG KEELEY BIOGRAPHY

Doug Keeley’s clients are unanimous in saying he has hooked them onto business storytelling because stories work.

After spending more than 3 decades in the global communications industry serving Fortune 500 companies, Doug Keeley saw that facts, broad statements, and busy slides, were replacing great stories in business. And it wasn’t working. Leaders weren’t connecting with their people. Salespeople were just dumping information on prospects. HR was struggling to attract and keep its best people. So Doug Keeley founded Stories Rule! To help clients use stories to power sales, leadership, and culture.

Over the last 15 years, Doug Keeley has inspired hundreds of thousands of people through his keynotes, conference hosting, workshops, and training. His clients include Accenture, HP, IBM, Merck, Microsoft, Pepsi, Starbucks, and TDBank, as well as small business leaders, startups, educators, and public servants.

As an MC, Doug Keeley is a master at tying clients’ messaging together from beginning to end while injecting his “tour de force” video stories through an agenda. As a keynote speaker, Doug Keeley will knock it out of the park, whether the focus is Business Storytelling, Leadership, Teamwork, or Innovation. He is also happy to do workshops as part of his program.

Doug Keeley’s programs work exceptionally well virtually as well as face to face. Doug Keeley is the author of the book, The Mark of a Leader and is an inductee into Canada’s Meetings Hall of Fame.

Co-Author, Chicken Soup for the Soul

Your stories injected energy and creative thinking through the meeting. The way you customized them to the Frito Lay messages for the year really hit home. These stories were truly inspirational to our teams and helped us reinforce our objectives in a unique and powerful way.

President
Frito Lay Canada

By far one of the most effective, motivational speakers I have ever heard. Retaining information from presentations is always a challenge. Because his presentation was so visual, emotional and energetic, I will retain most of it.

Janssen Inc.

You hit a huge home run! That was incredible. You could tell how well your General Session presentation was received by the fact that your breakout session afterwards was filled to capacity. I will recommend you to anyone looking for an inspiring and unique presentation for their conference.

American Health Information Management Association

Doug was great!! We have a lot of Keynote Addresses where presenters say they get camp and the idea of camp, but they really don’t. Doug nailed it!! They loved him, they loved his presentation and they loved the theme behind his presentation, we all have something special to give no matter how big or how small the offering.
