Daniel came highly recommended and delivered on his Keynote at the Global CISO Executive Summit.

We hired Daniel as the keynote speaker for both our Business Innovation Technology Summit as well as our annual company meeting. I was thoroughly impressed with not only his actual keynote speeches, but even more so with his preparation process beforehand. We had a great conversation via phone a couple weeks beforehand where I realized how much he genuinely cared about catering his speech specifically to our audience, as well as aligning it with the message we wanted to send as a company. He is engaging, incredibly well spoken, and great to work with.

“Daniel delivered a great keynote at our Annual Global User Conference; his presentation was nicely tuned to our audience and the examples he incorporated were all accessible and helpful. It’s not easy to find compelling speakers who appeal to a broad audience and also convey something practical, but Daniel sailed over this bar. I would enthusiastically recommend him to companies looking to inspire innovative thinking.”
