“Within minutes of meeting Angela Maiers, I knew I wanted her to speak at BIF-9. Her passion is electric and infuses every room she enters with high energy and a sense of boundless optimism. Her talk at the conference exceeded even my high expectations for it. It received a well-deserved standing ovation and generated an intense and enduring buzz.”
Saul Kaplan, Business Innovation Factory
“When I began to assemble the program for my first Community Manager Conference, I was eager to bring in a closing keynote speaker who would attract registrants, create a buzz and send the attendees home on a high note. Angela Maiers was all of this and more. Her keynote was inspiring and actionable, and people still talk about it.”
Tim McDonald, Director of Community, Huffington Post
“Angela Maiers helped our educators realize they can change the world. She coupled her message with practical ideas, equipping teachers with tools to unleash student potential. She taught us how to escape the ‘crab bucket’ and bring out the best in others. You Matter and Passion Driven are not slogans, but potent concepts that dramatically increase relevant learning. Few people have the ability to touch hearts and minds at the same time. Angela Maiers is one of these rare individuals.”
Mark Schneider, Superintendent, Mid-Prairie and Keotah, IA

Angela Maiers flies in coach; usually from Denver, CO but often from other cities in which she works. She books her own air travel.

Most conferences reserve and pay for Angela’s hotel room at the principal conference hotel, but Angela is happy to make her own arrangements if the client prefers.

Airport Transfers:

Angela typically takes a car service from the airport to her hotel, even if it is a considerable distance. If a team member is traveling with her, they will rent a car and drive, when appropriate.

  • Connection cables from the projector to her laptop
  • A connection to play audio from her laptop
  • Angela uses a 2015 Macbook Air.
  • Angela brings with her a Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter and a clicker.
