What Clients Say...

Mike was a keynote speaker at our recently held Digital Ignition Symposium. Mike was given the unfortunate graveyard shift but due to the insightful, enthusiastic and passionate way in which Mike delivered his talk made it the most interactive and interesting session of conference. He is one of the most dynamic speakers I have seen in a long time.

I saw Mike speak at Acceleration's Digital Ignition Sympsoium.

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.

I saw Mike speak at One Africa Media 1013 group conference.

Mike is irritatingly good at public speaking. Irritating because he has an uncanny ability to read the audience and pitch the content and tone at exactly the right level. Irritating because he delivers profound insights in a common-sense manner, and because his wry sense of humour makes each presentation more like a chat with a mate than a lecture.

I saw Mike speak at IMC Conference, Johannesburg 2013.
