"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
