"Congratulations on a very fine presentation at our conference last week in Monte Carlo. Your presentation was very appropriate, as it illustrated the opportunities which are being created at an alarming pace. We will be working with you again in the future."

Group 1 Software

"Candidly, Jordan, I can only recall one keynote speaker at any of our prior 17 conferences who even came close to generating the "buzz" that your session created. That buzz went on through the entire conference...Many speakers are entertaining; many speakers are informative; however, few can combine the two qualities, and fewer still can do it the way you did."

Northwestern University School of Speech

"Our only regret was that we didn't have enough time to hear more of your fascinating presentation. I felt that we had only scratched the surface!

Langley Research Center, NASA

"Your wonderful mix of humor and penetrating thought brought home the importance of creativity in our workplace. We will make a concerted effort to use the principles that you have shared with us."
