An Interview with Alfred Poor, The Health Tech Futurist:

This 3-minute interview gives some insight into Alfred Poor as a speaker and health technology expert. It also gives meeting planners an idea of what it is like to work with Alfred, and how his goal is to do what he can to make your event a huge success.

Success Stories

Alfred graciously offered to fill in a speaker spot for Venture Café on very short notice. He immediately jumped in to provide a description of his session, headshot, and created a social media graphic to immediately promote the event. Not only was he a pleasure to work with, but he generously went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. He was well-prepared and his presentation was timed to fit our schedule. He was interactive and energetic as he delivered practical and relevant information for our participants. They were engaged throughout, and we all enjoyed a lively discussion. We look forward to collaborating with Alfred again in the future!

I want to congratulate you on your presentation during the Smart City Expo Miami -Sustainable Cities Experiences, held from December 8th to 10th, 2021.

Thank you for participating as a speaker and for contributing to the success of the event.

As the Host of the long-running – since 1996 — Consumer Tech broadcast on nearly 200 AM & FM stations around the country, I wanted to share that Alfred Poor — as the Health Tech Futurist — creates a weekly “Health Tech Minute” for our show, “Into Tomorrow with Dave Graveline”.  Our listeners love the range of stories that he brings, as well as his clear and engaging way of presenting the material. And we appreciate his professionalism and the high quality production of his segments. He is both a knowledgeable and skilled speaker and our audience tells us that they always look forward to his informative reports each week. Alfred is truly as asset to “Into Tomorrow” and the Health Tech industry.

Dave Graveline, Host, Into Tomorrow

Alfred Poor delivered a very professional video presentation during WEEF. His ability to respond on relatively short notice was much appreciated by the Program Committee that was forced to make last minute adjustments for the conference in Munich, Germany, due to suddenly changing COVID rules. WEEF audience evaluations showed that they found Alfred’s content relevant and thought-provoking.
