Terry Brock has worked with Blogging since 2002 and before that as a journalist. He helps businesses around the world (35 countries and counting) to create sales-boosting strategies. He has worked with Skype as their Chief Enterprise Blogger heading up their writing, Skype video interviews and audio recordings.
He recently concluded a project with AT&T as the Editor-in-Chief of their big business blog where he coordinated the efforts of over 100 experts in subject topics like The Cloud, Mobility, Security, Social Media and many other areas. As a result, AT&Ts blog became the envy of corporate America and the post child of how to do corporate blogging right.

“Terry was a partner of ours at AT&T as the editor-in-chief for our blogging efforts. I really enjoyed working with Terry and having him help evolve our blogging initiative. He was extremely collaborative and very easy to get a hold of to bounce around ideas or perform expedited work. Terry always had great new ideas for work that could be done to evolve the practice and “take it to the next level.” I would recommend Terry to any organizations looking for an editor or video expert.” Sam Nova
“Our association first hired Terry Brock in 2010 as our keynote speaker at an annual conference. Terry’s presentation was met with such rave reviews that we had to have him back in 2012. As we prepared for each of these events Terry brought a new meaning to the words “above and beyond”.
Terry spent months preparing for each of these conferences– getting to know our membership and the industry, writing articles for our publications, creating promotional webinars and videos, and so much more. Many of our members have come to rely on Terry for business and technology advice. He has become an integral part of our association’s response to the ever changing world of technology, and we look forward to having Terry speak again in the future.” Chelsey Thomas
“In 2011, I witnessed Terry Brock speaking twice as a main conference speaker. Terry was absolutely fabulous, sharing his expertise in relationship marketing and social media in a highly articulate, engaging, practical and entertaining way. I went away and was inspired to apply more from Terry’s two speeches than I have before from witnessing a speaker. I was so impressed that I approached Terry to be a guest on my ‘Be More. Achieve More’ radio show on Voice America Business. This proved to be a wonderful opportunity to work with Terry Brock and get to know him personally. I was not disappointed. Terry has been a pleasure to work with, a truly inspiring expert and a thoroughly thoughtful and gracious person. Terry applied his expertise to push technological boundaries and film our show via skype as it went out live. Impressive as Terry was located in Florida, myself in the UK and the producers in Phoenix. I recommend Terry as a speaker who really adds take out value, a leading expert in his field and a very caring, fun and authentic professional. I am proud to have Terry in my network.” Chris Cooper
“From the moment I first connected with Terry Brock to Headline our Opening session of our CEO-MC, Community Association Institute, Retreat I knew I had found a winner. Terry contacted me immediately and from that point I had to hang on as his energy and personality took over. In a nutshell, Terry walked into the room filled with CEOs from throughout the US and 5 from Austrailia and he held the audience in the palm of his hand. He was an absolute hit. He was “bang on” in connecting with our industry and it was very apparent that he had utlized prep time to gain an understanding of the challenges we face; everything was well researched. Terry bonded with the audience and engaged their participation. The information he shared was both timely and pertinent. Our CEO-MC Committee hit it out of the ball park – and because of Terry – we can take a bow, but Terry was really the wind behind our sail – he truly made our work look easy. Everyone came away feeling the bounce from the energy he spread around the room. We have talked about technology for the last 3 years, but this was the first time the majority of the audience “shook their heads in agreement”. They got it – and most importantly they bought into the fact that Terry’s message helped move us closer to the technology that is all around us.” Kaye Youngren
