What our clients say

"I am taking home powerful ideas to develop."
Comment from delegate to an executive programme at the Stockholm School of Economics, June 2015

"Fantastic, absolutely enjoyed each moment of it, you opened up our minds to think differently."
Feedback from delegate to the Deloitte Global Lead Tax Partner conference, Berlin, May 2013

"Many thanks for delivering such an inspiring and thought-provoking session. It set a great tone for our two day session."

"Neil is a blast! This is a speaker/presenter guaranteed to inform, entertain and stimulate. He had an audience of 500 African journalists hypnotised at the recent Highway Africa tenth anniversary conference, and lifted the focus of the event to the long-term - the trends and how technology impacts the future."
Guy Berger, Professor of Journalism, Rhodes University

"Neil's message was clear, 'If you haven't started positioning your business for the future already, you run the risk of being remembered as a business from the past!'"
Iain Bryant, Harmony Gold.
