Keynote Speaker – Healthcare Innovation

“The presentation was highly informative. There were many questions by attendees that you answered with even more information. Many attendees spent time with you afterward, and you remained until all their specific questions were answered. This was really appreciated. Many people came up to me afterward to thank me for getting you to speak to our group.”Sol Libes

He was quick to respond to our requests, and was an excellent communicator. He arrived two days before the event, and showed up early to help get everything ready. I found him to be well-prepared, and his dynamic opening presentation helped set the tone for the rest of the event. He made my job as the conference producer so much easier.”Samantha Young
