Testimonials

We were delighted with Nick’s speech on future trends. He lights up a room with his energetic and engaging style. He even has the audience engaging with each other in a fun way. He had us listening, learning, laughing and (almost) crying. We could not be happier with our choice.

He has an insider’s understanding of the world of technology and innovation. His speech was funny, fast-paced and insightful as well as being motivating for our people.
Gary Wingrove – CEO KPMG Australia

Nick spoke on “AI and the Future” at our events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. His performance was energetic, funny and insightful. Great stories and great engagement with the audience. Unlike other speakers, he gets the audience to engage with each other – but in an easy and enjoyable way. We have had terrific feedback. 
Rob Currie – Chief Business Director WPP Group

Nick, your presentation was outstanding. This is the third year we have run this and it is by far the most engaging and entertaining presentation I have seen so far by a long way. It was a tough gig doing the graveyard shift. You somehow embraced that and you had the floor laughing out loud and fully engaged in your talk. Your presentation was well researched, thought provoking, relevant, absolutely entertaining, and very professional.
