          Very insightful and full of powerful content. I really found your “next actions” a very useful tool for turning ideas into a concrete follow up to drive change.

          Mike bridged IT legacy practices with the future reality. All too often IT takes the technology centric view and Mike called us to action to engage our customers, not publish to them.

          I thought the presentation was spot on. I wish my former industry, newspapers, would have embraced change much sooner … and would have implemented a much different strategy than is presently engaged.

          Impressed with the level of research you did to speak to the audience rather than deliver a generic message. Probably the one session that I will share and use because it gives a structure to driving innovation and thinking strategically.

          Mike, you were awesome. You transformed the 5 big trends in IT into something much more useful for how to plan our companies. I’ve heard and read a lot about these trends but never with your focus.

          The session inspired me a lot. I just started my new leadership role in Sony Mexico one month ago. The idea of replacing e-mail with Facebook is exactly what I want to do. Those insights into the future are a great eye opener to rebuild our mid-range planning.

          Mike is a very engaging speaker and brings to life the future with stories and visuals in a way that is accessible to both people with a strong understanding of the future as well as those who don’t have the same level of understanding. He has a unique ability to open the eyes of the audience in a positive way. Mike tailors his speech to his audience and is excellent in delivery. He is not someone that you need to micro manage because he lives and breathes his field and has a strong focus on helping organisations achieve the outcomes they need.
