What Clients Say...

Mike spoke at the South African eCommerce Conference 2013 on the topic “The impact of social trends and technologies on the eCustomer” and was extremely well received with feedback from attendees such as “Best speaker of the day. Great Energy!” and “absolutely brilliant. would love to see more of his presentations”.

Mike is a one of the most insightful people in the industry I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Not only does he have a global perspective on social media, marketing, and business that is compelling, but he has clearly made it actionable in South Africa. It was terrific to work with him and his team to help deliver Social Business Africa 2013.

I saw Mike speak at SBA 2013.

Mike did a fantastic job entertaining our delegates at our annual conference. Our group is made up of internet entrepreneurs from all over the continent who are already doing a lot on social media. Mike did a great job of communicating the point that it is the message that matters and not the medium. I would have no problem recommending him.
