General Brett T. Williams exceeded our expectations as the keynote speaker of AccessIT Group’s 12th Annual Cyber Security Symposium.

Our team really enjoyed the ease of working with him and would hire him to speak again at other events.AccessIT Group, Inc.

I had the pleasure of working with Brett Williams on a virtual cybersecurity event recently. From our first pre-event meeting to the post-event follow up, Brett impressed me with his attention to detail, expertise on the subject of cybersecurity, and his ability to quickly understand our event goals and align to support them. Our event was a tremendous success and we're already talking about our next engagement with him. Thank You, Brett!Illusive Networks
We recently had MG Williams come speak to our Board of Directors at our annual Fall Membership Meeting about cyber security and cyber crime. His presentation was lauded by my membership for his ability to communicate the depth of the problems faced by modern businesses operating in the online environment, and the types of action that must be considered by anyone in business today whose operations may be jeopardized by cyber crime. I highly recommend him to others similarly situated.Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America
