What other organizations say about George Blankenship

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.
