Inspirational & Informative talks

Forget the same churned out talks you see recycled and reused at the plethora of other marketing events out there. We work closely with all of our speakers - some of which can only be seen sharing their tactics at Traffic Think Tank Live - to ensure we give you the most interesting and relevant content to help you solve the problems you're facing.

Introducing our rockstars underline

Meet the speakers

We've pulled together some of the leading experts in the industry, some of which rarely share their secrets on stage, to bring you insights that go above and beyond what you can simply find out online. Similar to last year's event - and unlike most other events, you'll be able to ask questions directly to each of the speakers as they'll be around all day, making this an opportunity you simply can't miss.

Matthew Howells-Barby

Matthew Howells-Barby

Snr. Director, Marketing @ HubSpot & Cofounder @ Traffic Think Tank

Matthew Howells-Barby

Matthew Howells-Barby

Matthew has built his entire career on his ability to drive results. After years of leading digital campaigns at some of the most respected agencies in the UK, Matt was hired as HubSpot’s Global Head of SEO. Within six months, he’d grown organic traffic by more than 50%. Within two years, it’d skyrocketed over 200%. As HubSpot’s Director of Acquisition, he’s helped the company more than double sitewide conversions.

Matthew also advises on acquisition for startups and tech firms like BuildFire (0 to 1MM visitors in 9 months) AppInstitute (300% increase in organic traffic in 3 months), Deputy, and Lumanu. He’s been a keynote speaker on stages like MozCon, SearchLove, INBOUND, and GrowthHackers. And he’s just getting started.

Nick Eubanks

Nick Eubanks

CEO @ From The Future & Cofounder @ Traffic Think Tank

Nick Eubanks

Nick Eubanks

Nick founded his first company at age 19, and sold his first business at age 24. Now, he consults on SEO strategy to billion-dollar businesses as the Founder and Chief Strategist of I’m From the Future. Because free time is overrated, he wrote and sold a 47-post blog for $100K on a whim, and launched multiple infoproducts in niches he had less than no experience in that netted over $500k in revenue.

When it comes to technical SEO and information architecture, Nick’s the one guy you definitely want to have on your team—and now, you do.

Ian Howells

Ian Howells

Cofounder @ Traffic Think Tank

Ian Howells

Ian Howells

If you’ve never heard of Ian Howells, it’s because he’d probably prefer it that way. He’s more of a “shut up and rank sh*#!” guy.

Since ’99, he’s competed in and dominated in the fiercest niches and darkest corners of the web (think: poker, pills, and… you know.)

His agency work began in 2007, eventually landing him at Red Ventures where he managed a book of business worth millions per month. He then lead SEO at LendingTree, ranking for terms like “car loans” and “debt consolidation.”

He's now an independent SEO, monetizing his own sites and doing limited consulting.
