The Future of Innovation
George was incredible and everyone loved his remarks! We are thankful to work together and look forward to more opportunities in the future.
He was truly one of the nicest keynote speakers we’ve ever worked with. The presentation he delivered was spot-on and we received a lot of positive feedback from our attendees, both internal and customers. The on-camera interview he did was great and he spent a lot of time with the media during the press conference round table – we had to pull him away.Dassault Systèmes
We heard lots of great feedback from our colleagues and guests on George’s presentations. I know our colleagues had lots of questions for him and I think would have liked to continue if time had allowed. He brought a lot of enthusiasm and humor to his presentation and seemed to engage easily with the crowd and was very approachable. Thanks for everything!Huntington
