“It’s a culture shock for the generations before. It is so untapped, it is so unpredictable. I like the way that it was an extended TED talk. It was really punchy. You got a whole lot of content in just a little while. So the presentation itself was excellent.” ~ ATTACQ
“Chaos-whisperer.” ~ HEAVY CHEF
“It was an absolute delight to hear your insights, case studies, and advice yesterday. You are a master of metaphors! The participants reported a diverse range of valuable insights that they have already leveraged into actions. Thank you so very much.” ~ BAMBOO DIFFERENCE
