"Tom's provocative insight into how emerging technology will impact our industry and how leaders can better connect with their customers and employees for sustained growth was one of the highlights of the Forum. Additionally, Tom moderated a stimulating conversation with retail CEOs about their glimpse of the future and then led all attendees in a fabulous discussion about finding pathways to success. Tom engaged with the attendees well before his presentation and then joined us at dinner so that all attendees had the ability to be inspired by his breadth of knowledge and his passion for making us all better!"

Stephanie Fischer

“AIIM is a community of leaders focused on information-driven innovation, so it is a difficult group to impress when talking about technology issues. But that is exactly what Tom did at AIIM15; he left everyone speechless. His combination of deep insight, a great sense of humor, and an incredible personal connection with the audience was exactly the right recipe forour event."

John Mancini
President and CEO, AIIM

“In contrast to other keynote speakers, your willingness to engage with us prior to our conference to insure that your keynote was relevant to our diverse audience of university faculty, students, non-university partners and rural community representatives was greatly appreciated. The focus of our conference was on stepping beyond boundaries, dealing with the complexities faced in creating positive futures for rural people and places. Your high energy keynote and interactive session on the rapidity of change and generational differences of engaging and working through complexities were relevant and well received by the audience, setting a great tone for the conference. It was great working with you. Thanks.”

Mark R. Gustafson PhD
Interim Director, University of Nebraska Rural Futures Institute

“Tom spoke on 2 different occasions during the 2013 Partnerships in Clinical Trials conference – once in front of our senior-most decision makers and the 2nd time in front of our core audience as our closing keynote presenter. Attendees raved about Tom in both sessions and we got wonderful feedback via our post-event surveys. From an organizational point of view, Tom was easy to work with, prepared, knowledgeable and went above and beyond in what we asked him to do! On behalf of the Institute of International Research, I’d like to thank Tom for his dedication, insights & flexibility and would highly recommend him to other organizations.“

Marina Adamsky
Program Director, Institute for International Research
