Participant Comments

“Steven is a regular keynote speaker at our events & every time his performance is an absolute highlight. He rivets the audience with thought-provoking presentations on the impact and pace of the digital transformation in general and changing consumer interactions in particular, but never without presenting his listeners with concrete solutions or actionable steps. He has a very unique & authentic style: leveraging a combination of academic depth and well-reasoned cases, he spices up his presentations with a great sense of humor.”

"I contacted Steven a year and a half ago because I needed a good speaker for my most important event. He came to my event and not only gave a great presentation but also connected with the audience in a very special way. The audience were glued to their seats and hungry for more. It’s fair to say Steven met and surpassed our expectations. I really recommend him."
