Drake is an energetic, dynamic speaker. He always comes prepared to deliver an amazing performance. While at events, he's focused on ensuring the attendees get their money's worth.

Testimonials about Drake

  • Marc Tassin

    Director - Gen Con Writer's Symposium

    Maxwell Alexander Drake's educational seminars for writers are exceptional. As the director of the Gen Con Writer's Symposium, I've received significant positive feedback from guests about the value of his programming. Even without that direct feedback, I have ample evidence from the fact that Mr. Drake achieves attendance figures every year that are on par with events featuring our biggest name guests. I believe that the secret to Mr. Drake's success are his well-planned, carefully thought out presentations that focus on practical advice but delivered in an easily consumable format. Guests leave his events energized and educated—the perfect combination to help an author achieve success.

    Author Coordinator - Origins Game Fair

    Drake is great at conventions. He's personable, knowledgeable, and loves to teach. He has a great work ethic and I enjoy having him as part of the Origins Library.

  • Eli Jackson

    Director - Authors Combat Academy

    Working with Drake was a great experience. He’s responsive, open to students, and fun, too. After seeing him teach at several different conferences, we invited him to be an expert at Authors Combat Academy. He was one of our highest ranked presenters (from our student survey.) He’s always professional. Drake clearly enjoys teaching and he has so much to offer. We’ve invited him back for a second year and are looking forward to having him again. If you get the opportunity to have him at your conference or to take one of his classes, grab it. You don’t want to miss out on this fantastic presenter.
